Hi! I have an album in iPhoto that has both photos and videos. When I start a new project in iMovie, I drag the album from iPhoto in but only the pictures show up, not the videos. How do I get the videos in? Thanks!

what format are the videos? you can encode them with handbrake or mpeg streamclip to a different format which imovie should read.

HandBrake

Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac OS X

Haven't used iMovie in awhile but I think you can import them (in the iMovie menu). Also, I believe iMovie will automatically build thumbnails of your iPhoto clips (not sure about this--itc has been quite a while). These will appear in the lower left hand portion of your window. The clips can be dragged and dropped into your project.

I will dig out my MBP and look and post back if I have anything to add.

EDIT: just checked. You can import using the file menu. But iMovie will automatically (configuration setting?) build an event library of your iPhoto and Aperture video clips.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
