PD13 MOV Editing Tips - Possible Way to Imoport MOV files to PowerDirector 11/12/13

It’s officially stated that MOV is supported by Cyberlink PowerDirector. However, sometimes you’ll find it a painful experience to import MOV files to PD for movie editing. There’re some frequently asked questions quoted as below. 

Q:MOV File no audio Power Director 
"I have a Movie in MOVformat that i import into Power Director 9 and then drag it into the timeline and only the video shows up in the timeline. I have other videos i import into Power Director in other formats and the audio is attached to the video when i drag them into thwe timeline but not MOV files." 

I have PD13 with all the latest updates. I am unable to import H264 1080P mov files. Scoured the internet, I got some hints. MOV container files can contain data encoded using various compression and encoding schemes. Cyberlink PowerDirector can support MOV format, but the ability to import the data that they contain is dependent on the codecs (specifically, decoders) installed. To open and edit all MOV files in PowerDirector(13)without hassle, a better choice is to convert MOV to Cyberlink PowerDirector most compatible format like MPEG-2.
