    How can i export video to avid, can i just do a DV export from imovie, and will avid read it? Or AVI? I need uncompressed, high quality. Would also consider export from FCE or FCP/.

    To avoid the hassles, export to the same setup you're going to be using in AVID, if it's DV, HDV, HD, etc. If it's DV, then yes do a DV export in quicktime so it's in the best possible quality. Avid will read it. Avid will then create its own version of the video in either OMF or MXF file format inside its media directory.
