How to Fix MOV DaVinci Resolve Importing Issue?

Why DaVinci Resolve MOV Importing Issue Occur?

There are four potential reasons why your MOV video files do not load into DaVinci Resolve or only the audio is imported.

Possible Reason 1: The Problem of DaVinci Resolve Itself

The version of your DaVinci Resolve is too old to support MOV files. In this situation, you can update your DaVinci Resolve to the newest version. (The current version is DaVinci Resolve 18 and make sure you are not the free version user.)

Possible Reason 2: The MOV Files Are Corrupted

If your MOV video files are corrupted, you will be unable to view or edit them. So you can check whether your MOV files can be recognized and played by other programs. If not, repair the corrupted MOV files using some professional video repair tools.

Possible Reason 3: The Hardware Configurations Are Insufficient

The hardware configurations can also affect video importing. If your hardware configurations are too low and your MOV files are shot in 4K, especially those 4K MOV footages shot at a high frame rate like 60 FPS, then you may fail to import your MOV videos into DaVinci Resolve.

Possible Reason 4: Some Required Codec is Missing (Incompatible Codec)

Generally speaking, the most likely reason is that an incompatible codec or some required codec is missing, resulting in the file format not being recognized. MOV is a multimedia container format that can adopt various kinds of codecs to encode video, like MPEG-4, MJPEG, H.264, HEVC, GoPro CineForm, etc. And the official website of DaVinci Resolve also points out that not all the QuickTime codecs are supported by default. So if your MOV files are encoded with a codec that is not supported by DaVinci Resolve, you will encounter a MOV importing issue. To fix this problem, you can transcode MOV files with a handy video converter tool.

As mentioned above, the most likely cause for MOV video files that can’t be loaded into DaVinci Resolve or MOV audio import only is an incompatible codec or some required codec missing. So transcoding MOV files to DaVinci Resolve supported codec is the most workable way.
