    Just found out that I can only import a video WITHOUT the sound and not the video WITH the sound included into iMovie when I have the video in MPEG-1 Muxed format or MPEG-2 Muxed format. The specific format I have my video in (which was uploaded from my camera) is MPEG1 Muxed, 640 x 480. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to change the format of the video so I can get the audio and video into iMovie instead of just the video? Thanks in advance.

    Also I am having some issues with the transitions in the editing video section. For some reason when I click on some transitions they "fade out" the add button so I cannot select that transition but others let me click add. They still show me a preview in the video window but it will not let me select that transition. Any one have any ideas on this?

    I don't quite get when you're asking, but to convert video, the best software I've found is Visual Hub. It's an all-in-one convert anything to anything program and I love it. I tried video converting with windows and it was such a chore- not any more!

    Simontarr you are the man! Thanks for the help. That is exactly what I needed. Worked perfect! Now if I could only figure out my transition problem.

    Not a problem :)

    Sorry I can't help you out with the transitions....I don't do any video editing myself- just converting.
