Applications :: Compatible Video Format For IMovie

Mar 13, 2010

I have a bunch of videos that I recorded on my windows computer, they're in an uncompressed AVI format (huge files). Since I wanted to use iMovie 09 for the editing I decided to convert them to mp4 using VisualHub (to compress them and so they would work with iMovie) and they seemed to work fine, I could still see the video on Quicktime. The problem is that I still can't add them to iMovie. Whenever I add one of these videos as mp4 or dv (I've tried both) they go through the process of adding them to iMovie (copying, creating thumbnails, etc.) and then when it's finished, that's it. No video is actually added to the event. It happens all the time no matter what other options I change when converting the file. And by the way, I noticed the "Show All Clips" option at the bottom of the iMovie main window, it's not that. Anyway, here's the info on one of the files (from the Quicktime X info page of the video):

File: Video 4.mp4
Format: H.264, 800 x 600, Millions, AAC, 2 channels, 44100 Hz
FPS: 30
Data Size: 84.3 MB
Data Rate: 4,505.10 kbit/s
(This file goes through the process when I add it to iMovie, but doesn't actually get added). Some of them have an 840 x 524 size instead of 800 x 600, but they still fail to get added to iMovie properly.

I'm a Mac newbie. I switched from Windows a month ago. I need to covert some videos that are in the .WMV format to any (preferably, the best) iMovie 09' supported format.

Applications :: HDC TM700's 1080p60p Compatible Yet - IMovie FCP

Jun 9, 2010

I am about 2 days away from making my camcorder purchase(for my honeymoon) and have been researching both the Canon HF S200 & Panasonic HDC-TM700k for about a week now.
When it comes to camcorders, I prefer to stick with Canon. BUT from what I've seen, I think the Panasonic is an overall better camera. That being said I have read that Panasonic uses their own proprietary format when using it on the highest quality setting( 1080p at 60p )and that it is not recognized by virtually any editing software(on the mac).I have read the Apple Support forums including the AVS forum. Turns out there are several workarounds using other software for conversion(ex Toast), but I'm looking for the simplest of methods as I will be importing a tremendous amount of footage to be put onto Blu-ray(hopefully in the near future). I really don't want a "speed bump" in the way and would prefer to have a more "integrated" experience.

Applications :: Importing Movies Into IMovie 09 - Supported Format?

Mar 7, 2009

I have a video that I am trying to import into iMovie '09. Its it a .MOV file. The file shows up in iPhoto, but when I go to iPhoto movies in iMovie, the file does not show up. What type of formats does iMovie let you import? Perhaps I can't import because its the wrong type of file? If so, is there a (free) way to convert the .MOV file into a file that can be imported into iMovie?

Applications :: Output 720P File From IMovie In Apple TV Format

May 28, 2009

Had the Macbook for a few months now and Apple TV for a year or so. Just upgraded to iMovie 09 and thought I would put a few of my 720P video files together to make a holiday video. All went well until it came to outputting to my Apple TV in a format it likes? I seem to be able to out .mov, but for reasons unknown Apple have decided the ATV won't support this, slowly understanding that the whole "Apple" family of gadgets may well not be as compatible and wonderful as they first appeared.

Applications :: Best Video Format For Burning DVD?

May 8, 2009

What video format is best when using the "dvd video from video-TS" option in Toast 7.0.2? My goal is to burn a video onto a dvd and then watch it on any tv. So far, I've tried the .mpg and mpeg4 video formats. I find that the video quality with .mpg is poor with a jittery picture when watching it on tv via a dvd disk. The video itself plays fine on the computer, and the dvd-r disks that I use are of high quality. Comparatively, Toast did not accept the mpeg4 format when dragging this video into the "dvd video from video-TS" window.

Applications :: MTV Video Format Conversion Program?

Dec 21, 2010

I'm an old-school Visual Hub user when it comes to converting video formats. Unfortunately, that app is no longer being made and it doesn't solve my current problem so looking for some advice. My nephew won an MP3/video player as part of a contest at school. Its not an iDevice but its a prize and he's enamored with it. The problem is, although it supports video, it only seems to support files formatted in the "MTV" format which I understand to be really limited technology.

Can anyone recommend a decent media conversion program that will let me convert MP4's, AVI's and such to the MTV format? Its likely time I upgrade from Visual Hub anyways so I don't mind spending some money on a useful app. The problem is most of those I see mentioned in the forums here don't specifically mention the MTV format.

Applications :: How To Use Flip Video And IMovie 09

Mar 4, 2009

I installed iLife 09, and just recently tried iMovie 09 for the first time. Pulled some videos off of my Flip and dragged them into iMovie as I did with the Flip videos and iMovie 08. It looks like it imports them fine, but then in the preview panel it says "No Matching Video, choose a different option from the Show pop-up menu at the lower left corner". So i made sure that THAT menu says "All Clips" but still nothing is showing up.

I tried using quicktime pro to convert the avi files to mov files and still nothing is showing up. I dont know what I could be doing wrong but this is awful! I was so excited to have the new BETTER iMovie and I can't even use it for the only thing I want to use it for.

Applications :: New To Imovie, Video Won't Import?

Apr 28, 2009

I read through the information provided by iMovie, and searched around on Google, but I'm not getting anywhere. I have iMovie '08, and have never used it until today. I tried to import some videos (Mp4) that I have on my computer in order to edit them. I imported them, selected the project to import them to, where to save, etc. Pressed import. iMovie said it was importing the video and then uploading thumbs or whatever. After that, nothing. Nothing shows up in iMovie, and I don't know how to access the video clips, or how to make them transfer successfully. Am I doing anything wrong?

Applications :: Possible To Merge Several Video Clips Into One (IMovie)

Oct 3, 2010

After you have downloaded say 10 movie clips from a video camera into I- Movie, is there a way to connect 2 or more of the clips and make it into one clip? When making movies every time you pause the video camera it creates a different clip. If you pause it 15 times at the same event you download 15 clips which in turn you have to create a button for each clip in I- DVD. I would like to combine some of them to somewhat fewer.
