    Digitizing HDV with iMovie

    I am using iMovie 7.1.4 on my iMac with 2.8 GHz Intel Core Duo and OS 10.10.2. I am trying to digitize HDV from my Sony HDR-FX1. When I digitiza standard DV it works fine, but when I try to digitize HDV it doesn't work. All I get is a blue screen.

    What am I doing wrong? Is my version of iMovie capable of digitizing HD?

    Thanks for any help.

    Without a long-winded talk about this, the root of the problem is Sony. They suck, because they LURVE to use their own proprietary mix of formats and don't play well with others.

    If you need to get this converted immediately, take it to a video conversion service and pay them to do it.

    If you can fool around with it for a while, this thread appears to have a working solution (not the first one, the second one):
