This might be obvious to some people but I didn't find the information googling so I am submitting this tip. 1.) open iphoto (if it doesnt open automatically when the iphone is connected), select the video file, and choose to import selected. Save this mov file in a new directory. 2.) Open imovie (Im using the 09 version which has different menus than previous versions). 3.) File>import the mov file you saved and choose full resolution for best results. 4.) Drag the clip to the project window and adjust the yellow selection tool and just select the frames you want to keep. 5.) This is where I got hung up. Where I would normally expect there to be a File>export option there isnt. Use the Share menu, Share>Export movie using quicktime. If you dont have this option, you may need to install Quicktime player 7 from your Snow leopard disk. I have found QT player 7 to be more robust (for example opening avi files) than the default QT player installed with snow leopard. 6.) When you export movie using quicktime you need to select the option under export to be Movie to Image Sequence. Then, under options, you can choose the flavor of the image file, e.g., tif, jpg, png, etc. Enjoy! Warning, only do this for short clips as the size of the directory will grow proportional to the length of the clip.
