Thread: Easy question. H264 to uncompressed format

    Default Easy question. H264 to uncompressed format

    Hi, Im completely new to video editing.
    I recently recorded a 47min clip of a wedding on my smart phone. The format is H264 and is 4Gb.

    I downloaded lightworks to edit it but when I use the built in transcoder to make it into DVC100 for editing it only did the first 10min. I'm not sure if its and error with the soft ware or whatever. But my main question is this:

    Is there any stand alone software then convert H264 to an uncompressed video format? Thanks very much!!

    You have a few options. If you want to persevere with lightworks, which doesn't support editing iphone footage as I understand, you can transcode in chunks. Just set the in and out points for each section. Or you could continue to troubleshoot this problem and use other free tools to try and convert.

    My favoured option would be to use an editing app that natively supports iphone footage such as premiere elements. You could use the free trial if money is an issue.

    If you are brand new then premiere elements is a great tool to get you started in video editing as mp pointed out

    if you don't want to go that route, then download streamclip and give it a go
