KineMaster lets you import videos, images, and audio created on your phone, tablet, M1 Apple computer, or Chromebook. But you can also use media created with DSLRs, drones, GoPro, desktop software, and many other sources. They just need to be saved in a format KineMaster can read.
KineMaster can read any of the following file formats saved to the internal storage of your mobile device.
- MP4 (H.264 Baseline/Main/High Profile + AAC LC / PCM)
- MP4 (H.265 HEVC + AAC LC / PCM)
- 3GP (H.264 Baseline/Main/High Profile + AAC LC / PCM)
- MOV (H.264 Baseline/Main/High Profile + AAC LC / PCM)
- Animated GIF files
KineMaster saves all video projects as MP4 files (H.264 Baseline + AAC LC) or as animated GIF. These are automatically saved and available to view in your Gallery (Android) or Photos (iOS) app.
If you download and try to import a file that KineMaster doesn’t support, you’ll get an error message, or it won’t work as expected in your project.
Examples of common, but unsupported video formats include FLV, SWF, MKV, AVI, and WMV.
To use files that are in unsupported formats, you will need to convert them. Most video file type conversion software is only available for desktop or laptop PCs running MacOS, Windows, or Linux. HandBrake is a free, excellent program for accomplishing this.
DRM Protected Audio
Audio files that have DRM are also blocked from use in KineMaster. DRM protected audio is often provided on official, online music stores like iTunes, Amazon, and Google Music. You can learn more about DRM protected audio here.
