Import Canon EOS 60D videos to iDVD for burning on Mac
  • One of my friends got a Canon EOS 60D DSLR recently and shot many wonderful videos with it. However, when he copied these video clips to his Mac for playback, his troubles came. Although audio sounds are great, the video is choppy and skips. Choppy playback may be because his computer is underpowered, or overloaded with some other resource intensive application in the background (sometimes antivirus will do this, or the operating system's routine maintenance or search indexing function). Regardless of HD quality, now all he wants to do is to burn these videos to a DVD. The good thing is that playback quality doesn’t effect his conversion and DVD burning. Perhaps when you browse the article, you have the same problem to import EOS 60D videos to iDVD for burning. Now, I will show you the solution.
