    Hi! Okay, so I've encountered a VERY strange problem...Importing videos from my camera into iMovie works fine and dandy until I hit a certain clip. From that clip on, all the movies I try to import have no audio.

    HOWEVER, when I click "Show In Finder" on these clips that have no audio and play them in Quicktime, they have audio! So then I re-imported these videos into iMovie, and it worked! They had sound! Is this really what I'm going have to do every time I try to import my videos from my camera? Import, show in finder, RE-import? This has gotta be some kind of bug...Thanks!

    Is it possible that the clips with no audio are recorded with a different bit depth? I seem to recall that iMovie doesn't like some (such as 12-bit audio). If they do have different bit-depths, I'm sure there's a way to correct that, but I don't know what it is.

    Alright, thanks for the response! That actually makes a lot of sense. I'll look into it. Thanks again for responding!
