Which way i can convert MOV to Avid DNxHD for Davinci Resolve 9/10/11/12

Have trouble importing H.264 MOV files into Davinci Resolve for further editing? If so, follow the quick-start guide to learn how to prepare MOV videos for editing in Resovle 11 without quality loss.

When editing videos like MOV in Davinci Resolve, many people are facing the issues. The most typical one is the video, audio showing problems. First of all, have a look at the related problems:

Q:h264 .mov files importing only audio
Does anyone know how to resolve this, pulling my hair out and had to revert to Resolve 11 to get my work done. No video is loading on .h264 .mov files… It’s like the codec is missing and Davinci Resolve is just importing the audio track.

Well, although Davinci Resolve claimed it supports MOV, the highly compressed H.264 encoded .mov is not ideal for editing yet- even if Resolve 11 can successfully ingest your videos, it still needs a long time for rendering. If you want to use an easy way to solve the trouble, you can convert MOV to a native format, DNxHD codec file, for directly transferring toDavinci Resolve for further editing. Along with some help from the Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac (Get Windows version here), it can be done.

This is an easy-to-use MOV converter for you, which can help you change MOV into a different format like MPEG-2, WMV with least quality loss. You should then be able to import the new file into DaVinci Resolve 9/10/11/12 for smooth editing without any trouble. Besides, with it you may also convert MOV to Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Elements, Avid Media Composer, Windows Movie Maker, Pinnacle Studio and more NLE programs highly compatible formats for editing. Don't hesitate to install the video converter program now.
