Hi.

I have a few quicktime movies created using my old digital compact (a Kodak DX6340) which i'd like to import into iMovie 08 and edit.

The only problem is i cant get iMovie to import the files.

Any Ideas?

Thanks

I think you're gonna have to re-encode those clips into a different format, like MP4 or DV. Then iMovie would import them.

Oh. thats a pain. i thought iMovie would accept Quicktime given its an Apple file format.

Thanks for the help. I'll give it a try
