I have seen a couple other people ask this question but I have yet to find an answer. When importing an mov file into the blender video sequence editor, I find that the program becomes extremely laggy and cannot playback at more than 4fps. Is there some special way to import a .mov file? Or can we officially say that importing an .mov file to blender is something to be avoided?
My solution was to export the mov file as an .mkv file and when I import that into the editor it works very fast. It is something specifically about trying to edit an mov file that blender doesn't like. Here is another link concerning this. I tried their solutions and I did not have success:
Is anyone having success with mov files in the video sequence editor? Just to be clear, I am importing an mov file, not exporting my project as an mov file
