I might be missing something, but good grief... I'm having a heck of a time importing, editing, and then burning to a DVD with the iMovie setup. I have a brand new Retina Macbook (I'm new to macs)... attempting to use iMovie. There is no iDVD, I guess, because there is no DVD drive. Nonetheless, this stuff is so darn picky. It doesn't like the format... or it's greyed out (unselectable for import for some reason), etc. With Microsofts Live movie editing software, I seemed to be unlimited by that kind of stuff. I'm a big time novice... purely a basic end user.... but I was expecting this Apple stuff to be utterly obvious for just that kind of person! Even getting a video which was imported to iPhoto to open in iMovie (for editing) isn't happening. It's not like I have some kind of exotic camera (Panasonic Lumix DMC Z57) with an unheard of format. Are there other complete software setups that are more flexible/tolerant with importing, editing, sharing, burning?... all in one. Messing with iPhoto for import, then iMovie, then iDVD.... and THEN they don't seem to communicate with each other! Ok, so seeking a tidy, beginner level video editing package that will create videos in a format that is "understood" by other devices and sharing (youtube) zones. Suggestions?
