    I have a canon and it is at SP mode and its on record as TV type 4:3 and Wide TV as 16:9. I have tried to upload my videos onto my Imac 10.4.11 with my Imovie HD.

    I have a 6 minute clip a 2 minute clip and a 1.5 minute clip.

    I started yesterday and it was on all night and all day today and now its going into the second day. How much longer am I supposed to wait for this?

    :(

    44 views? There must be someone who knows what to do or had this happen before.

    A couple of things

    You might want to post this in the video forums

    Also, the more you tell us the more we can help
    Ie
    iMac model
    Ram
    Hd
    PPC/Intel
    Camera model
    Os version which you did post
    iMovie version
    Video types

    Honestly from the info supplied you could be using a Mac from 2002 which might have difficulty putting 4:3 and 16:9 video in the same timeline in an old version of iMovie

    Back in the old days it used to take adobe after effects 24 hours to do a 30 second conversion.
