Canon EOS 6D, the new full-frame DSLR is the choice for those who think that the Canon 5D Mark III is too big and heavy and too expensive. The 6D features a newly-developed 20.2-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor and an extremely wide ISO range starts at a low 100 up to 25,600. On video the EOS 6D offers full manual control over exposure and audio levels while recording in full HD 1080p at 30/25/24 fps or 720p at 60/50/30/25 fps.
If you’ve been the Canon DSLR users, you will know what the limitations of the video format the Canons DSLRs record in would be, including this new Canon EOS 6D. When you try to put Canon EOS 6D H.264 MOV files to iMovie for editing, you will encounter more or less problems. Here we suggest you to transcode Canon EOS 6D H.264 files to AIC for iMovie.
Firstly we’ll get the “Why” out of the way. With your original H.264 files imported into a timeline in iMovie (or other NLE), you’ll already have noticed they don’t play smoothly, let alone sometimes iMovie cannot ingest the H.264 video files. Often frames are held while the audio plays ahead, chunks of frames are skipped and syncing any movement or action is generally a nightmare. Why does it do this? Well the H.264 codec is intended for playing back video for the end user. This means that like most video codecs it uses some fancy tricks to minimize file size – one of these tricks is that it doesn’t actually store the information for each frame. For editing, however, this is a nightmare. So we need to transcode Canon EOS 6D H.264 files to iMovie compatible codec AIC.
