As a professional converter, Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is a recommendable Nikon H.264 MOV converter for iMovie to help you. Below is a guide for you to import Nikon H.264 MOV to iMovie without watiing much time.
I own a Nikon D3100 and I need a way to see the live view of my camera on my laptop screen. There must definitely be a way (I am not just aware of it). I have searched all around the web sites. I could not get a solution. The Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 does not support D3100, and 'Camera Control 5.1' connects and shoots remotely from a laptop but does not show live-view nor shoot in RAW. There is a way of connecting my camera to a TV or monitor directly via an HDMI cable and getting the live view, but I want it displayed to my laptop screen. Most tethering softwares that list support for Nikon cameras do not include the D3xxx series.
Most of the Dx, Dxx, and some of the D7xxx and D5xxx bodies are at least partially supported. The D3100's firmware or hardware may limit this capability.
If all you want to do is view the output of your camera without controlling it, you just need to connect it to a device that accepts an HDMI input. The easiest and most economical solution would be a display only device such as a portable HDMI monitor. Most laptops do not accept HDMI inputs due to copyright constraints on the licensing of the HDMI technology. Alienware once made a couple of models, the M17X and M18X, that would do this, but they were very expensive. Dell, who bought Alienware, still lists the and with HDMI-in capability. They're still very expensive. There may be other models that also do this.
Be aware that according to page 42 of your D3100's user manual: When the camera is attached to an HDMI video device, the camera monitor will turn off and the video device will display the view through the lens as shown at right. Movies can not be recorded and photographs can not be taken in live view while the camera is connected to an HDMI-CEC device If you are willing to drop down to standard video quality using the TV out port on your camera, a will allow you to display photos from your D3100 on any laptop with a USB port, but you would not be able to view the live view output this way, only captured images or video. I use my d3100 with a HDMI monitor to record videos and take pictures all the time. Not sure about what the user manual says about it, but works well for me (tip: live view turns off after 30 seconds but this can be changed in camera menu). Live view with USB is not possible with D3100, as far as I have been able to research.
Other than that, Digicam Control allows you to control the camera, but could be more user friendly. Digicam is FREE.
I like to use Digicam Control for timelaspe, and it can be used for HDR, neither of which D3100 has built in.
