iMac - iMovie help

Hello
Just got a 21 inch imac and been having a mess around with iMovie.
Ive just finished the rendering process now i'm wanting to move the movie into itunes so i can put it on my ipad.
Thing is though i can't seem to get it to play in iTunes,so i cannot move it onto my iPad.
Does imovie not convert the files into mp4.
Is there any way i can get round this.

Thanks
Ian

Perhaps this would be better in the imovie sub forum or something similar as this isn't directly related to the iMac.

But off the top of my head have you tried the share drop down menu and chosen itunes?

In iMovie you should have selected the Publish To iMovie option and it will show formats that will work with the iPhone (and other devices).

I guess they changed it from share to publish. I don't use imovie (Only FCP - the last version before it changed over).
