I stumbled upon "Hitfilm Express" while searching for video editing software, and I decided to give it I try.
What I want to do is to edit footage I captured with my drone, a DJI Mavic Pro. These videos are stored as *.mov-files, and when I want to import them into a project, Hitfilm tells me I need to install Quicktime. Now as Quicktime for Windows was discontinued some time ago, I didn't want to install it. Instead, I tried to simply change the file extension from .mov to .mpg. To my own surprise, this worked fine, Hitfilm was able to import and play the clip. Changing a file extension of course does not transcode the video, so it seems that Hitfilm is well capable of handling these videos, but doesn't even try to do so when it sees the .mov extension.
So what I'd like to know if there is a way to make Hitfilm import those videos without having to change the file extension of each.
