I have a slo-mo video imported from iPhone to my photos app. Now I need to transfer this from photos of my mac to other mac's photo.

I tried by exporting my video as a file in finder and later imported back to the photos app. The slow motion video is working as expected at right timings, but the editing mode is lost. i.e: We cannot alter the timing or frame of the slow motion thereafter.

What can be done if it need to import the video again with the slo-mo frame edit options available.

  1. In Finder:

    • Create a folder for the media you want to transfer.
  2. In the Photos app:

    1. Select the media that you want to transfer.
    2. In the menu bar, select File > Export > Export Unmodified Original For...
    3. Select Export
    4. Choose folder from step one
  3. Transfer the folder from step one to the Mac where you want to import the photos

  4. In the Photos app on that Mac:

    1. In the menu bar, select File > Import...
    2. Select the folder you exported from step one
    3. Select Review for Import
    4. Follow the dialog.
  5. Enjoy.

(But do note: If you made a modification to the slow motion segment, it will be reset to the default after export. I'd love for this to be amended, but I suppose we're beholden to Apple for that...)

  • This still seems to be the only way to preserve the editing mode of Slo-mo videos. Using airdrop to share Slo-mo videos removes the editing mode. – allienx Dec 7 '19 at 23:17
