The other day, I recorded some videos with my GorPro HERO3+ in 4K mode. The created 4K files are very clear with the 3840x2160 screen resolution, I like the great quality. However, iMovie’11 won’t let me import videos. When I select File->Import->Movies and browse to the directory where I saved all the 4K .mp4 files on my hard drive, they’re all greyed out. But they are opened properly with QuickTime and VLC player. Who can help me solve the frustrating problem?

Searching in Google, I learn that iMovie can import MP4 video. But it only supports MP4 files that are encoded with MPEG4/AAC or H.264/AAC data. MP4 is a video container format that may contain various audio and video codec, and even subtitle streams. If the MP4 file is not encoded with iMovie support codec, iMovie will refuse to import this kind of MP4 video. In this situation, how to make iMovie recognise my GoPro 4K .mp4 files? Follow any below suggestions I recommend, you can easily import GoPro 4K video to iMovie.


Suggestion 1: Use GoPro’s free converter Cineform Studio to convert GoPro 4K video .mp4 files into a compatible format. And follow this guide to convert 4K files: how to prepare video files for editing on Mac.

Drawback: There is no option for choosing the output file format, only the resolution (1920x1080) and the frame rate (59.94p), neither of which I changed.

Suggestion 2: Download the GoPro HERO3 Video Converter, which offer the free trial version. You can convert 4K video files created by GoPro HERO 3+ to iMovie supported video format. The program provides the iMovie option, so you can directly get iMovie supported video files after conversion. The software also lets you convert GoPro 4K video to FCE, FCP, QuickTime and more practical video formats for your need. If necessary, you can adjust the output video and audio parameter, such as the encoder, resolution, bit rate, sample rate, etc.

Conclusion: The GoPro HERO3 Video Converter is a perfect software to change 4K video files to iMovie format, and it can also handle other many video files such as AVI, WMV, MPEG, MOV, MP4, FLV, MKV, M4V, VOB, MTS, M2TS, MXF, 3GP, etc.

What is an AVI format?

AVI fiel extension A file with the AVI file extension is an Audio Video Interleave file. AVI files are often containers, containing both audio and video compressed using varying different codec. Most AVI files use DivX, Xvid or 3ivX compression codecs. An AVI file hasn’t limited compression standard, so it has no compatibility. The AVI files created with different compression standards, must use the corresponding codecs to decode the data and play them.

We often find AVI files on multimedia discs for storing movies, tvs and other video information. Sometimes, they are used in Internet, mainly for users enjoying new excellent clips of new movies. Some digital cameras also record videos in AVI format. The main advantage of AVI is its high image quality, like the DVD video format. And the disadvantage is that it often produces larger file sizes than other file formats.

How to play AVI files?

Generally speaking, playing an AVI requires two things: a video player software and a codec. Each version of computer ships with a video player, Windows (Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, VLC media player, Winamp), Mac OS X (Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, VLC media player), Linux (VLC media player, Xine multimedia player). So that is not a problem. The problem is called the codec. To open the AVI, you need to know how the AVI was “coded”, which means that you need to know what codec you need to use. If there is no proper codec to play your AVI file, you should install a new codec.

How to convert AVI files?

When your computer media player refuses to play an AVI file, saying “You may experience problems playing a video track in “filename.avi” because the required compressor could not be found”, which means there lacks specific codec on your computer to play your AVI file. However, there are hundreds or thousands of codecs in the world, so it can be an overwhelming task to test them each out individually. Luckily, there is an easy way to get around it. That is using Jihosoft Video Converter, which supports convert AVI files to other video formats that can be played with your computer media player.

The video conversion program is able to convert AVI files compressed with any codecs to MP4, M4V, MOV, MPG, WMV, MKV, VOB, 3GP, DV, ASF, WebM, FLV, SWF, DVCPRO, HDV, XDCAM EX, XDCAM HD, BDAV HD, etc. Want to play your favourite AVI movies on portable devices? You can still use Jihosoft Video Converter to convert AVI files to specific video formats that are supported by your portable smartphones or tablets, such as Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod, Samsung Galaxy series phones, HTC One Max, Sony Xperia phones, Motorola Moto X Phone, Amazon Kindle Fire HD, etc.

R3D File Format

R3D (REDCODE RAW) is a proprietary file format that efficiently encodes measurements from a camera’s digital sensor in a way that maximizes post-production capabilities. It is used as native recording format of Red digital cameras and recorded on proprietary hard disk drives, CompactFlash cards or SSD drives. All RED cameras record only in the REDCODE RAW codec. This codec has a constant-bitrate wavelet codec with a compression ratio from 18:1 to 3:1 which allows raw Bayer sensor data to be compressed for on-camera recording.

Currently, most professional video editing software can import and edit R3D files. When the Red QuickTime codec are installed, Apple’s Final Cut Pro can use REDCODE files, and Final Cut Pro X can natively edit .R3D as of version 10.0.6.

Canon CRW/CR2 File
CRW - The CRW format was supported by some earlier Canon digital cameras. The Canon CRW file format is a joy to work with. It has a structure that is fundamentally similar to TIFF, with directories that point to data within the file. But a major improvement over TIFF is that the offsets are not absolute, they are relative to the start of the data block for each directory. This allows subdirectories within a file to be moved or copied to another file without having to adjust the offsets, which is fantastic because it means that rewriter software doesn't have to understand the complete format in order to be able to successfully rewrite the file.

CR2 - The CR2 is Canon’s newer RAW file format. It uses a TIFF-based format, used by Canon since the 350D, 20D, G9 and 1D Mark II models. CR2 files are uncompressed files. The image within the CR2 file is the exact same image that was captured by the CCD detector inside of the Canon camera at the time the picture was taken.Some CR2 files also contain text information about the picture as well as details about the conditions inside of the camera when the picture was being taken.

Canon CR2/CRW Recovery
It is a headache if you accidentally delete Canon RAW image files from your digital camera or format your camera’s memory card, you’ll lose unmemorable moments. Thus, a Canon photo recovery is a must-have program you have to avoid losing important pictures. For Mac users, free to try Photo Recovery for Mac.
