How can I work with E-M10 Mark II 60p MOV files in iMovie smoothly?
“Hi, all, I am a new Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II owner. I am having problem getting iMovie to work well with the 60p .MOV files from my camera. iMovie allows for easy and direct importing of videos from E-M10 Mark II, but the process is very unreliable and unstable, so I needed something else. Can anyone direct a smooth workflow for editing E-M10 Mark II 60p MOV files in iMovie? Thanks for any help!”
The OM-D E-M10 Mark II offers five Full HD variable frame rates (60, 50, 30, 25 and 24 fps) and intuitive touchscreen operation that lets you alter settings on the fly while you’re recording. If for some reason you are having issues editing E-M10 Mark II 60p MOV footage in iMovie, we would recommend transcoding them to a format that is best suitable for use in iMovie first, such as Apple’s InterMediate Codec encoded .mov format, which iMovie will recognize and handle well. Here’s a quick guide on how to encode E-M10 Mark II 60p MOV files to AIC .MOV for iMovie editing.
How to convert E-M10 Mark II 60p MOV files to Apple InterMediate Codec for iMovie editing?
