Some people experience no problem editing Canon G7 X MP4 in iMovie, while others are not so fortunate. Following is a question I found in the MP4 to iMovie forum: “Hi, I got a lot of G7 X MP4 videos from my friend and he asked me to edit those Canon G7 X MP4 videos for him. However, I was failed on the very first step. I even could not import G7 X MP4 files into iMovie. What’s the problem? Thank you for any tip!”
Why sometimes can’t import G7 X MP4 to iMovie? There are two reasons. First, iMovie only supports importing MP4 formats with MPEG4/AAC or H.264/AAC data, not all kinds of MP4 formats. Some MP4 files from like Sony, Hybrid camcorders and other devices cannot be accepted by iMovie. Second, iMovie contains all the essential codecs to read MP4 files. Any different codecs included in audio and subtitle will cause the issue. In the circumstances, we still cannot successfully import MP4 files to iMovie.
