Hi folks, I've recently started using Hitfilm 4 Express and as well as learning the vfx side of things, I thought I'd use it to finally edit together a whole pile of .MOV video files I have of my kids which were filmed on multiple different iPhones. And I also thought I'd try and follow the good practice suggested in these forums by converting all of the files to DNxHD first using MPEG Streamclip. However, the lack of Quicktime on my Windows machine (following Apple recently removing support for it and the subsequent report of various zero day vulnerabilities) means that I get a "No Quicktime" error when opening MPEG Streamclip.
Is there an alternative method to convert my footage to a good format/codec for editing, other than re-installing Quicktime Essentials and continuing with MPEG Streamclip? I've seen mention of the Cineform codec elsewhere, but I am not sure what program I'd have to use to convert the iPhone footage? And given that the footage originated on an iPhone, does that mean I'm stuck with Quicktime whether I like it or not?
Many thanks in advance for any assistance!
