    iMovie .avi - .mov
    Hi, I had some clips I wanted to transfer into iMovie in AVI format, but they wouldn't open. I opened them in Quicktime Player and saved them as .Mov format and tried agin but iMovie just said they were unusable. What's a format I can use that iMovie will accept and how do I convert my MOVs?

    I am running Mac OS X 10.6.7 and have iMovie 11 (9.0.2).

    Use MPEGStreamclip and convert to Quicktime using the Apple Intermediate Codec option. That's best for editing in iMovie.

    Thanks for your help, but I figured out how to do it. I just threw my converted MOVs into iTunes and clicked "create iPad or Apple TV version" under the advanced menu.
