    Imovie Video Importing Problems
    I have a 24" IMac and Sony DCR-TRV19 DV camera and I'm trying to import the video into iMovie.

    iMovie recognizes the camera and I can control all aspects of the camera (play, rewind, fast forward) within the iMovie software.

    The problem comes when i press the import button in iMovie, the camera starts to play and I see the video in the software, however, nothing seems to be importing. That is to say after I stop playback, there are no clips saved in iMovie.

    Any suggestions on what I could try to get the video to save. I've changed the preferences in iMovie, repaired the permissions using Disk Utility, changed firewire cables, restarted with the camera connected, but nothing seems to work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you see any clips in the clips window, which is located in the top right of the iMovie window?

    No. I don't see any clips. I do see the video play though.
