    I want to make a movie on imovie. I recorded something on my camera and put it on iphoto. There is no iphoto video section. To find the video i have to click the day i added it. I went to imovie and clicked iphoto video. It said no matching video, How can i take that video and put it on imovie

    Drag the movie from iphoto into a folder that you can easily find. Than import it into imovie by going file, import movies in imovie.

    I've found that the 'videos' listed in the dated folder in iPhoto are really just .jpg stills. The .avis are tucked away in the folder named 'Originals' under the same folder name as the .jpgs. Those are the ones you want to import into iMovie.
