Have a look at the steps below for the easy steps to import iPhone videos ( MP4/MOV) to editable on Pinnacle Studio 14/15/16.
The iPhone (including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, etc.) records in MPEG-4 and outputs its files as .MOV files (the container). Files are compressed using the h.264 codec (as opposed to AAC or Xvid and DivX usually found in .AVI containers). So the files you are getting out of iPhone are suited to be delivered as is, which is usually not what you want.

Guide: How to Convert iPhone videos (MOV/MP4) to HD Video for Pinnacle Studio
Step 1: Load iPhone video files
Run iPhone Video Converter and load MOV/MP4 clips to it by clicking "Add" button.
Tip: You can check the "Merge into one" box to merge several video files together for easier editing.
Step 2: Select Pinnacle Studio friendly format as output format
Click "Format" bar to determine output format. Here we choose "HD Video" -> "AVI HD Video (*.avi)" as output, which seems to be the best one due to the great video quality but small size. Of course, MPG, WMV are also the proper formats for Pinnacle.
Step 3: Determine you video resolution, bit rate, frame rate, etc.
Click "Settings" button if you'd like to customize advanced audio and video parameters like Video Codec, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, Audio codec, sample rate, audio channels. Notice that you can not "convert up" video quality. If you selected HD Video in Step 2, we advise you to adjust the A/V parameters to be the same with source iPhone MP4/MOV footage so as to bear least quality loss at proper file size. To cut down file size, you may set down video bit rate, the lower bit rate you set the smaller file size you get. Do not forget to click "OK" to confirm your settings. Then type in a desired output location in the "Output" box.
Step 4: Convert iPhone videos to Pinnacle Studio Ultimate friendly video format.
Click the convert button under the preview window, the converter will start encoding iPhone MP4, MOV for importing to Pinnacle Studio. Soon after the conversion is finished, just click "Open" button to get the generated files for edit in Pinnacle Studio 14/15/16 perfectly.
