How do I import my footage onto a computer?

Importing using iTunes File Sharing (iTunes 12.7)

The quickest way to import the videos stored in your FiLMiC Library onto your computer is using  iTunes File Sharing. The method is identical on both Mac and Windows platforms and provides the quickest way to transfer footage from your device to your computer ready for editing.

Note: iTunes File Sharing is not available on Mac computers using MacOS Catalina or newer. If you are using a Mac computer with MacOS Catalina or newer, you can use the Finder to transfer your files from FiLMiC Pro to your desktop. Please follow these instructions to use the Finder:

Importing using AirDrop (Mac only)

AirDrop offers a convenient wireless solution for batch transferring one or more videos stored in your FiLMiC Library to a Mac computer. It is useful if you do not have a lightning cable however does result in slower transfer times when compared with iTunes File Sharing.

Importing using Cloud Storage (Dropbox, Google Drive, Box etc.)

Exporting your clips to cloud storage (Dropbox, Google Drive etc.) is a useful way of syncing your videos to a computer. FiLMiC Pro supports export directly to most cloud storage solutions provided you have the relevant app installed, however it is limited to sharing one clip at a time due to restrictions put in place by Apple's sharing framework.

Importing using an iOS compatible external storage solution (iXpand, iKlips, Leef iBridge etc)

Exporting directly to a compatible smartphone storage solution can offer a convenient way of transferring and backing up footage captured in the field — especially if you need to free up space on your device. This can then be connected directly to a computer via USB and imported.

Importing using a Third-Party iOS File Browsing applications (iExplorer, iFunBox etc.)

Whilst using a third-party iPhone file navigation software package doesn't provide any additional functionality over iTunes File Sharing, for those who do not wish to download and install iTunes it can be a great way of quickly importing footage to your computer from FiLMiC Pro.
