    I've tried searching for this in the forum here, but didn't have any luck. I'm trying to use iMovie to edit/put together some footage I have. It is from a DVD that was filmed during a church service. The format shows up as .VOB. But it will not let me import this into iMovie to edit. What format do I have to have to import it and be able to edit? Does it have to be .avi? mp4?

    This might help.

    Via Google.

    VOB files a Mpeg 2 vide files, which are highly compressed and therefore not suited to be editable.

    You can also use MPEGStreamclip to convert the VOBs (once ripped to your hard drive) to a DV stream.
