The Apple iPhone camera features are impressive for a camera phone which you can use to record videos in a very convenient way. When you took some fantastic videos, sure you want to share with your friends and families or uploading to the online websites. Before sharing, you may want to edit iPhone videos on your Windows PC with Pinnacle Studio. However, you will find it a painful experience to import iPhone videos into Pinnacle Studio for further editing. What's matter? How to fix the issue? Read on to find it out.

The iPhone (including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, etc.) records in MPEG-4 and outputs its files as .MOV files (the container). Files are compressed using the h.264 codec (as opposed to AAC or Xvid and DivX usually found in .AVI containers). So the files you are getting out of iPhone are suited to be delivered as is, which is usually not what you want for editing with Pinnacle Studio.

Actually, there is an easy way to fix the issue. Since iPhone videos are usually encoded in H.264 MOV, which are not editable-friendly in Pinnacle Studio, you can get a iPhone video converter and transcode iPhone videos to MPEG-2, which will save you both time and trouble, and all you need is to drag the result videos for prompt editing. For this purpose, this article will show you how to convert iPhone files to Pinnacle Studio compatible MPEG-2 codec in detail.
