Importing BlackMagic MOV to Cyberlink PowerDirector smoothly

I just upgraded from Cyberlink Powerdirector 12 to 13 and now all my Blackmagic camera footage ".mov files" won’t work in either versions. I've contacted customer support they said the files are no good, but I had them working in 12 before...? Can I convert them to another file type if so what would suit? I have scoured the internet, tried everything I could find, and have a decent solution. Now learn how to import Blackmagic MOV to Powerdirctor without hassle.

As some guys said, MOV container files can contain data encoded using various compression and encoding schemes. Cyberlink PowerDirector can support MOV format, but the ability to import the data that they contain is dependent on the codecs (specifically, decoders) installed. To work Blackmagic MOV files in Powerdirector beautifully, a good suggestion is to convert Blackmagic MOV clips to a more edit-friendly format. For this purpose, this article will show you how to convert MOV to MPEG-2 for Cyberlink PowerDirector in detail. 

How to Convert BlackMagic MOV for Editing in Cyberlink PowerDirector

Step 1: Download, install and run Brorsoft Video Converter, and then click the “Add” button to load the .mov videos.

The program is an easy-to-use MOV converter for you, which can help you change MOV into a different format like MPEG-2 with least quality loss. You should then be able to import the new file into Cyberlink PowerDirector with smooth editing without any trouble. It will ensure a perfect QuickTime file importing, playing and editing workflow with PowerDirector.

Step 2: Click “Format” bar and choose "Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas > MPEG-2 (*.mpg)” as output format on the drop-down menu.


Tip: Click the Settings icon to adjust video and audio parameters on the Profile Setting as you need to get the best quality video.

Step 3: Simply click the "Convert" button to start converting and everything else will be automated. If you have added quite a bunch of video files, it would take some time to convert. In such case, you can click Option and tick the box “Shut down the computer after conversion”.

You're done. Now your MOV files will be converted into MPG files ready to be imported to Cyberlink PowerDirector beautifully.
