Edit the Canon 6D videos in iMovie 8/9/10 without problems

Summary: The following passage guides you how to convert Canon 6D H.264 MOV footages to iMovie with Apple Intermediate Codec encoded MOV file so that you can edit the Canon 6D videos in iMovie 8/9/10 without problems.

Canon EOS 6D is the world’s smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR. If you’re in the market for a full-frame DSLR for ultimate technical quality and super-fast autofocus for action, but don’t want to pay extra for (or carry the weight of) the 5D Mark III, the 6D is about 95% of the 5D Mark III for a lot less money. The EOS 6D is built around a new Canon CMOS sensor, which offers a pixel count of 20.2MP. In concert with the DIGIC 5+ processor it offers a standard ISO range of 100-25600, expandable down to 50 and up to 102,400.

With every new Camera, comes many new questions about workflow. The term ‘workflow’ can be fairly broad, but today I am looking at importing Canon EOS 6D footage into Final Cut Pro. The Canon 6D uses the same workflow as the Canon EOS series of cameras which includes the 550D (T2i), 600D (T3i), and 1000D (XS), because it records in the same H.264 MOV format. Although the tools for importing the footage have been updated by Canon, it seems not working well when ingesting 6D footage to iMovie. Below, I will throw a quick tutorial up on how to import videos from Canon 6D into iMovie without the EOS Movie Plugin-E1.

Software requirement

UFUWare HD Video Converter for Mac – this program is good at encoding camera shootings in different formats (H.264 MOV, MTS/M2TS, MXF, etc.) to video editing software compatible file types, i.e. AIC for iMoive, ProRes for FCP, and DNxHD for Avid Media Composer. In this guide, we will run it as a Canon MOV to iMovie Converter to convert Canon EOS 650D (Rebel 6D) to AIC for iMovie. More than dealing with Canon 6D recordings, you can also use it to handle H.264 MOV footage shot by Canon EOS 550D(Rebel T2i), Canon EOS 600D(Rebel T3i), and Canon EOS 1000D(Rebel XS).
