    I have all my movies stored in iTunes on my iMac however i sync my iPad 2 from my MacBook Air.

    How would I get the movies from my iMac to my MBA to sync onto my iPad?

    Could I email them from my iMac to the MBA and save into iTunes on the MBA to then sync them?

    Thanks in advance!

    One way would be to use Dropbox. Just sign up, install it on both computers and your iPad, and you'd be all set.

    Dropbox has a 2 gig limit so not much use, any other ideas?

    setup a network between your desktop and laptop and transfer the movies that way...

    You can still use Dropbox if you use a program like Filesplitter.
    Split the file to under 2Gs, transfer, then join back together.

    iTunes and Home Sharing will do the trick just fine.
