So I filmed a bunch of stuff from the zoo today and was all excited about creating an HD movie in iMovie. I remember last time I imported hd video that when I finished and uploaded it to youtube, it wasn't in HD.

I've done a bit of research before bed and i think I found out that with iMovie 9 I can only import videos that are 720. Could anyone explain to me how to import my 1080p videos into iMovie and export them in 1080p?

Another question I had was that I saw something about stabilization when importing. Would that make my videos not as shakey? And since i'v already copied my videos onto my macbook, do I have to plug the HD webbie back in to import them in hd?

Thanks for any help guys!!!

I love to jump out of perfectly good airplanes!

if you want to import it set the file's on your desktop.
then go into the menu and look for import.
Don't choose import from camera but import!
then choose the file's and there it is!

this is what you need to do...
step 1:pee on your windows PC
step 2:kick your windows PC
step 3:enyoy your Mac

No, iMovie will work with 1080 files just fine.

Surely the help file in iMovie will cover this better than I can, but as for importing you'll have to share with us a little more info. Are these videos coming in via the camera you shot them on, or are the files already on the computer? What format are they shot in, what model camera, etc.

For exporting, the "Share" menu is your friend.

Yes, again I refer you to the help file for this, but here's a web page explaining it as well.
