Convert Canon EOS 5DS R MOV for iMovie 11

Summary: How to import Canon EOS 5DS R MOV to iMovie 11 for editing? A lot of Canon fans have encountered this sort issue that EOS 5DS R MOV couldn’t be recognized by iMovie 11. Look no further, find an easy workaround here!

Canon has added to its EOS 5D range with the launch of two 50MP cameras, the 5DS and the 5DS R. Both cameras are high-resolution full frame models, primarily aimed at stills photographers. The only difference between the models is that the “S” has an optical low-pass filter, while the “S R” has a self-canceling filter (the same relationship as Nikon’s D800 and D800E models shared).

The two cameras will exist alongside the EOD 5D Mark III, acting as dedicated high-resolution cameras primarily intended for studio, landscape and wedding shoots, rather than the all-round capability offered by the existing model. The Mark III still trumps the S and S R in terms of maximum ISO and continuous shooting speed. We can record 1080P MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 MOV with Canon EOS 5DS/5DS R easily. But we can’t import EOS 5DS/5DS R recordings to iMovie 11 for editing smoothly. However, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec is not wise for editing, but playback. To make Canon EOS 5DS R video compatible with iMovie 11, you’d better convert Canon EOS 5DS R MOV to iMovie 11 best accepted format.

Some main formats that iMovie supported are allowed below:
