    Hi there,

    I'm working on a video project for school and I have ~20 minutes (1.03 GB) of interview footage in Quicktime format that I am trying to import into iMovie. I can successfully import it, but when I watch the video in iMovie the quality is severely degraded. Some frames turn completely green, the video bounces back and forth, and there is a blurry streak across the top of the frames.

    I've included some screen shots as a reference.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Solved it. I exported the video through Quicktime in 1080p format to my desktop, then imported it to iMovie from there.

    Do you know what settings you did use in QT Player, since the codec is the important part?
