Hi, I am a Canon SLR user who has started to investigate the movie making capabilities of my cameras. All the movie files from the cameras are .mov files, and as Apple have kindly stopped supporting quicktime for windows I'm at a loss for the best way forward when it comes to editing these files. I know quicktime still works at the moment, but vulnerabilities have been identified and current advice is to remove it from the computer (see here). It seems to me that for all windows users quicktime is dead in the water and an alternative is needed.
My questions for the experienced movie makers are these: What would be the best way to convert the .mov files to another format and what format would that be?
I did email Canon about the future of .mov files but they were less than helpful!
