Dealing with quicktime videos

Last month I bought a new canon digital camera, but it files videos in .mov format. For my video editing I have been using windows movie maker. Well, movie maker will not work with quicktime.

My choices are:
Buy some video editing software that can edit .avi, .mpg, mov, .wmv
Buy another digital camera that films in avi and give the other one to my kids.
Buy a converter to convert .mov to .avi or .mpg.

Price is a factor here people. Please do not recommend software that cost over $300 or $400 us dollars.

Ya I would go the converter route as well. Save your money and just convert and keep going with the method that's been working for you.

.mov files can be pretty tricky to open in editors. You must have the correct authoring codecs installed - while this doesn't require QT Pro, the mov file can contain many codecs and there is no guarantee you'll have them all.

Thank you but that script produces a low bitrate and a low quality conversion. Its something like a 264kb bitrate, and I need something like a 2 meg.

The higher the bitrate, the better the quality.

I found a piece of software over at download.com. Its being tested right now, and its got a variable bitrate.

i would advice you not to convert your videos , it takes a lot of time and you can get crappy results

the best is to find a free editing software , and visual-hub is a good one
