I'm going from Mac to PC. What I did was move all of the files from Mac to a hard drive that was formatted to exfat. All of my videos are MOV files. When I import the MOV files to PowerDirector
, there is sound but no picture...
Hunting for solutions in Cyberlink forum, some guys asked to install QuickTime. I have Quicktime installed but still no picture just sound. I've done all the hoops with tech support and eventually try an alternative way- convert MOV to a different format for PowerDirector like MPEG-2. In this try, I succeed. Perfect video and audio in PD.
So, why PowerDirector can't read MOV files correctly? As some guys explained, MOV is a container format which can contain data encoded using various compression and encoding schemes. If your MOV files are not accepted by Cyberlink PowerDirector, it's probably because of the video or audio codec incompatibility. On this occasion, we need to transcode MOV to PowerDirector
preferred MPEG-2 files and then transfer the converted MOV files to PowerDirector for editing.
Here the utility guys recommend is Brorsoft Video Converter
. By running it, we can transcode MOV clips to PowerDirector compatible format easily. Besides transcoding MOV video to PowerDirector, the all-in-one and easy-to-use toolkit can convert all other popular video formats like AVI, MXF, MP4, WMV, MKV, FLV, MTS, VOB, etc. to PowerDirector, Pinnacle Studio
, Adobe Premiere Pro
, Windows Movie Maker, Sony Vegas Pro natively supported video formats.
