    I need help with iMovie. When I import some of my clips from my old camera or any camera, they just have a still of the last clip before that and it completely silent and has no video! I really need help as I am starting to do montages with iMovie!

    P.S. I'm using iMovie 09

    Which cameras are you using and how exactly do you import the footage?

    Have you looked at Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Movies / iMovie and seen if the clips stored in there are playable in QuickTime?



    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses. (see rule #3 under Minor Problems)
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    I'm importing from the regular import option under "Edit" from a Nikon Coolpix that I used to use in 2009. It saves files in .avi so maybe that has to do with it? No I have not checked, I will have to go and do that.

    Yes, I checked. It was stored there and had sound, and playing video.

    Thus the .avi files have properly transcoded to .mov files I guess?

    Have you tried creating a new project and seen if the videos work there?

    Btw, you can edit your posts via the [​IMG] button, or multi-quote posts via the [​IMG] button, as sequential posts are "against" the rules.

    Minor Problems

    6. Sequential posts.
    Combine your comments into one post rather than making many consecutive posts to a thread within a short period of time.
