I have recently made the switch from pc to Mac and I am trying finish bridging the last few gaps that I have come to.
I am trying to use iMovie11 for editing some avchd files that I have on my external drive that were written by windows 7 64 bit and saved in VLS file type. It appears that iMovie does not like this file type.
Hoping someone can tell me what to convert my files to or perhaps what I am missing.
Thank you

Try converting to Mp4 with MPEG Streamclip....Although iMovie 11 will handle AVCHD files...have never heard of VLS...?

I'll bet iMovie will import the native files off the camera without converting first...FWIW...

Yes I am expecting the import from the camera to iMovie quite straight forward.
My issue is several clips previously taken, which I have now transferred to an external drive. If all else fails, I will still be able to use MS movie maker.

Export from MPEGStreamclip to Quicktime, using the Apple Intermediate Codec for the best format for iMovie.
