    Editing in iMovie
    I just want to edit a small clip i have (under 30 seconds long). I want to cut a part out of it and edit it so its slow motion.

    i got it all down in iMovie but when i import the .avi into imovie it says "Created with Flip4Mac trial www.flip4mac.com"

    I'm not using flip4mac at all, just dragging the avi from my finder into imovie... is flip4mac re-encoding the .avi to whatever format imovie accepts?

    How do i get rid of the trial crap? (other than buying it... like is there an other app thats freeware that does the same thing its doing)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    NEVERMIND... sorry guys, figured it out... flip4mac was converting the file in the background hence i got that message...

    all is well now, sorry for a worthless post.

    I used imovie for a while before I switched to final cut and I've never had a something like that pop up. Which version for imovie do you have, (4,5,6) and where did you get the clip from?

    sorry for the late reply... have been dealing with a bunch of stuff and not been able to get online much.

    I just used mp4 converter from mp4converter.net, converted the .avi to .mp4 and imported into iMovie.
