How to editor MXF and MP4 files in iMovie easily

By Jessicatian Subscribe to RSS | March 6th 2012 | Views:

“I just bought an HD P2 Panasonic camera and I'm having trouble getting my files converted to something usable like import to iMovie. The files are MXF and no programs I know recognize that. So is there a converter or a program I need to make this better? Thanks.”

“So I downloaded an MP4 (not mpeg4, or whatever), and I need to edit it on iMovie. It’ll show it importing, but it won’t show up. it opens in QuickTime (I don't have pro)I have iMovie 11.What do I do? I can't download any extra programs or software or anything because this isn't my computer.”

Probably you will face the same problem when you want to import your MXF file or MP4 file to iMovie because of compatibility problem, for iMovie can only deal with a few video files like MOV, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, DV etc.

For MXF editing in iMovie

MXF is the short term of Material eXchange Format, it is a container format for professional digital video and audio media which supports a number of different streams of coded "essence", encoded with any of a variety of codecs, together with a metadata wrapper which describes the material contained within the MXF file.

MXF is commonly seen in some digital camcorders like Sony camcorder, Canon camcorder and Panasonic camcorder, these camcorders produce mutually incompatible files due to opaque subformat options obscured behind the MXF file extension, and without advanced tools, it was impossible to distinguish these incompatible formats.

Therefore, it is hard to find a proper program to play and edit MXF file, to import MXF files to iMovie, and convert MXF files, you need a Mac MXF Converter to help you to do it. And as far as I know, there is a Mac MXF Converter that can help you do it. With it, you can easily convert your MXF file to any format you want so that you can make full use it in either QuickTime, iMoive or other applications.

For MP4 editing in iMovie

Although iMovie can deal with MPEG-4 files, but it is not possible for it to recognize all the MP4 files because of the differences of the codecs used in MP4 and MPEG-4. It is maybe impossible for MP4 file to determine the type of streams in an MPEG-4 file based on its filename extension alone.

If you want to import MP4 video to iMovie, you have no choice but to use extra program or software to convert your MP4 to iMovie compatible MPEG-4 format. MP4 to iMovie is a specially designed tool for you to import your MP4 video to iMovie by converting MP4 video to iMovie compatible MPEG-4, MOV file.

Besides, MP4 to iMovie is also able to convert between other popular video files like AVI, WMV, MPG, MOV, MKV, FLV, 3GP, RM, ASF, VOB, MOD, TOD, AVCHD, MTS etc for you to use in other applications or put on various portable devices like iPod, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab.
