    i have a macbook pro. i've looked through a lot of tutorials on youtube and apple support but i wasn't able to find the answer i was looking for. :eek:

    my question is

    how do i import a video on my desktop to the application imovie 09?
    i started to work on my killer intro vid and the rest of the vid happen to be on my desktop. however, when i attempt to drag the video to imovie09, it bounce right off.

    if there is nothing i can do, would it be possible to use the isight cam from imovie09 to make a video? i am not talking about making a video about myself. it actually pertains to an object ill be holding and talking about it. the only struggle is turning the object and holding it up. i know it can be better done with an actually camcorder but is there another way with the isight app on my computer?

    ty for your time

    If it's supported, you should be able to drag it over to the Event Library, and add it to an existing Event. Failing that use the File>Import>Movies menu and navigate to the file that you want to import.
