I'm trying to film a clip in iMovie using the built in iSight camera on my Macbook Pro, but I want to use a usb microphone to record the audio. I have already switched the input to the usb mic under system_preferences>sound>input, but the iSight still uses the Built-In Microphone. Any suggestions?

If you click on the Voice Over microphone icon in the iMovie window, then access the Record From drop down, you should see your USB microphone listed in the audio source list. Will that do it?

Check the audio option in System Preferences. I think that may be where you tell the system to default to the line in.
