    The Nikon D90 shoots 720p video to avi files. This weekend I shot about 40 videos at the Zoo and for some reason only 13 would import into iMovie. The rest would say that they were not compatible, even when I would try to import them one by one. All movies were shot on the same day with the same card and all play back fine in iPhoto and quicktime. Anyone ever run into an import issue like this with iMovie before?

    Never heard of something like that before.. hmmm maybe you should try a Nikon forums. they have more info about the cameras stuff but then it could be imovies fault..

    I know that apple video apps (Final Cut Pro, iMovie) refuse files that don't have constant fps (missing frames), which may happen in the nikon, if for example the Memory card is not fast enough. If the files play correctly in quicktime, that might be the problem.
