    I'm new to Mac and it's all a bit beyond me - I do film production and bought this iMac (on credit..) for my belated final year.. I have footage on dvd that only comes up as some strange code on my Mac - the same happened when i tried to download it from my university site - i searched the forums and found the flip4mac, mactopia etc but as far as i can tell it would only let me view the file and not edit it.

    Any clues?

    Im now skint.

    Any help is appreciated, i really want to get my film online but not as it is.

    Thanks :(

    get yourself a copy of visualhub, convert the movie to AVI or MPG, and drop it into iMovie.

    Should work.

    ah, it only gives you the chance to convert 2 mins. My film is around 11 minutes :(
