I have been trying to copy some old '80s VHS videos to iMovie09 and have had mixed experiences. According to Elgato in automatic mode the speed of your computer determines which format the file will be saved in. Fast computer H.264, slow MPEG-4. Mine seems to save in H.264 even if I change the preferences. The issue is the a H.264 does not allow you to mark you video selections as Favorites, Reject, etc. Take the same file and convert it to MPEG-4 and the selection tools work. These old tapes sometimes sync and sometimes not, so I may replay some of it several times to be copied. If I can mark rejects I can also delete bad video from wasting storage space with the iMovie clean up tool. Anyone with suggestions, particularly a fix for iMovie that fully understands H.264.
