Summer is coming... a time when millions of families head to the sun, sand, and surf. And along with the sunscreen, water and towels most will tote along their cameras to capture the sun-filled memories of children splashing in waves or building monster sand castles. Many shutterbugs readily whip out their camera in the heat of the moment and record it. A few days ago, I just took all family shootings produced by the lovely Canon EOS 500D (also called Canon Rebel T1i) in last summer and wanted to arrange them by cutting unwanted parts and merging them into one, in order to free up disk space for the upcoming summer videos. But I found iMovie 8 on my Mac can not support these H.264 MOV footages, let alone edit them.
Then I went to an apple forum and there were a lot of choices to convert. Complicated and slow ones. But someone said about the Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, I tried and finally convert my Canon 500D/T1i footages to AIC MOV for iMovie successfully.
