MOV is just a type of popular video among people favoring in video enjoyment. However, sometimes you may find some MOV videos you watch are not so good in quality. For example, i have a Nikon D810. It creates very nice video, i can encode footage with H.264 codec and save the files in MOV container format. But, Premiere Pro which for some reason has some difficulty with them(MOV format is Adobe PP friendly but H.264 codec is not natively supported by Adobe Premiere Pro - the H.264 encoded contents are highly compressed, for delivery only not editing.).So then what's the solution for editing H.264 MOV in Adobe Premiere Pro ?
The way around it is to convert the mov files to MPEG-2/AVC MOV codec on mac .
