How to Convert Zoom Q3 HD MOV to AVI for Pinnacle Studio
Step 1: Add Zoom Q3 HD H.264 MOV files
Install and launch the Video Converter, and then click "Add Files" button to import your Zoom Q3 MOV files to the software.
Tip: If you wanna combine mov video clips into one file, you can click the "Merge into one" box.
Step 2: Select Pinnacle Studio friendly format as output format
Click "Format" bar to determine output format. Here we choose "HD Video" -> "AVI HD Video (*.avi)" as output, which seems to be the best one due to the great video quality but small size. Of course, MPG, WMV are also the proper formats for Pinnacle.
Step 3: Determine you video resolution, bit rate, frame rate, etc.
Click "Settings" button if you'd like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sample rate, audio channels. Notice that you can not "convert up" video quality. If you selected HD Video in Step 2, we advise you to adjust the A/V parameters to be the same with source MOV footage so as to bear least quality loss at proper file size. To cut down file size, you may set down video bit rate, the lower bit rate you set the smaller file size you get. Do not forget to click "OK" to confirm your settings. Then type in a desired output location in the "Output" box.
Step 4: Convert H.264 MOV to Pinnacle Studio Ultimate friendly video format.
Click the convert button under the preview window, the converter will start encoding Zoom Q3 HD H.264 MOV for importing to Pinnacle Studio. Soon after the conversion is finished, just click "Open" button to get the generated files for edit in Pinnacle Studio 14/15/16 perfectly.
