Summary: If you are failed in putting VOB files into iMovie, I suggest you to read this article to get some help. This guide is written to help you learn how to transcode VOB to MOV for iMovie. I search the following issue from Apple forum. Failure of editing VOB files in iMovie must be a common phenomenon that exists in our daily life. Absolutely, it’s not the only one.
“I'm running 10.9.5 an iMovie 10.0.5. I have a DVD of video that I created and I want to bring it into iMovie. I've tried a couple of recommended solutions, i.e. Steamclip and MacX Quicktime Converter, but I get a message saying they can't be used because the developer hasn't been approved...or something of that nature.”
Why do we get errors from iMovie when importing VOB files to it? It is important to note that VOB is the core format of files in DVD. It isn’t the format that iMovie supported as same as other NLEs like After Effetcs, etc. No denying that iMovie gives us a wonderful experience. With iMovie, we can do film editing with its strong functions and share them with our friends. iMovie brings us far more than happiness. That’s why people want to put VOB or other videos to iMovie for nice enjoyment.
