      I have some 720p videos I would like to edit in Premiere but they are in .mov and premiere does’t accept that format. What is the best format to convert them to and how/what site can I go to to convert them for free?

      I’ve had the best luck with converting to AVI. I use Nero to convert so I can’t direct you to free software. I know they are out there…

      Yes it does. The problem you have probably isn’t an issue with the file format but instead with the codec used to compress the footage.Premiere Pso has native support for a wide variety of different formats and codecs.

      If you have Adobe Media Converter you can try to open your footage there and transcode it into a friendlier codec. Do you know what the codec on this footage is? Where did it come from?
