Ooookay. I've already done a LOT of research on this, but I'm a new Mac user (and by new, I mean since Sunday, people) and I'm not finding much help. I've got the better part of 30 gigs worth of video imported from a Sony Handycam (I hate this thing, but in my defense, it's my church's camera, and they bought it before I was hired, else I would have told them to get a real camera) that I need to edit. They all have .mpg extensions. I've got a brand-new iMac, and I'm walking a little blind here. How can I covert these videos to a format iMovie will understand and work with? I don't mind complicated - I'm a power Windows user, but this is my first real computer. So I'm sorta like a newborn chick in a very big, big forest full of scary looking trees.
