    trouble importing to iMovie
    I'm having trouble importing a movie to iMovie. It's in an mp4 format and from what I've read on this forum, I should be able to do it but I can't. Whenever I select import my file is listed but not bolded so I can't choose it at all. What am I doing wrong? I found it on itunes under movies but it refuses to go into the program. When I play it on my computer, it's in Quiktime, so I would think it would work. I believe I have iMovie 09, btw.

    Please help!

    Try using MPEGStreamclip to play your mp4s, and Export to Quicktime. Use the Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) setting. This is what iMovie is optimised for, so they should work.
