There has to be a better way to do this. I ripped a DVD using Handbrake and then started importing it to iMovie. It took 15 hours. I'm not kidding. And this was on a mp4 imovie project. Something must be wrong. I can convert some avi files I have into mp4 using ffmpex (sp?) and imovie imports it in about 15 seconds. What's the difference?
