    That camera uses the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. Imovie HD supports mpeg4. So Im pretty sure it will work. Have you thought about upgrading to imovie 09?

    Hi, I've a Sony HD camrecorder HDR-CX11E, but the software is not compatible with mac. Can only download the picture not film. What software can I use to tranfer the file from the camrecorder to my mac. Thanks.

    I have a Kodak EIS and it works wonderfully with my mac. Plus it's really small and compact, so I can take it everywhere. It plugs into the USB and also has an hdmi slot if you want to plug the camera into your tv.

    JVC HD Everio with iMovie

    I work for JVC and would like to try and help.

    The GZ-HD300 is a great choice if you have iMovie '08 or iMovie '09 and a Mac with an Intel Processor. Those are the basic requirements to work with HD Video in the AVCHD format (.mts) on an Apple. The camcorder would connect to your Mac through USB. Of course, having a faster processor, extra memory and a large hard drive are also important considerations for any work with HD video.

    If you have an older Mac, or an older version of iMovie, such as iMovie 6HD, then you may be able to use an older JVC camcorder with a Firewire (i.Link) output. You might look for a model like the GZ-HD3, GZ-HD5, GZ-HD6, GZ-HD7 or GZ-HD40. However, the process is not as easy, and chances are if your computer is that old, it may not have the necessary "horsepower" to handle HD video as well as a newer computer would.

    I hope this is helpful.
