Q: My AVI plays smoothly in QuickTime, but in iMovie, I get audio but no picture.

Q: AVI played just fine in QuickTime, but they "grey out" in the import window, so I couldn't import to iMovie.

iMovie only reads AVI that both the audio and the video were compressed by using a codec that iMovie can recognize. If iMovie can' t recognize your AVI video files, it's because of the codec used to create the AVI file is not supported by iMovie, even if you have Perian installed, which only allows you to play AVI in QuickTime. If you want to edit AVI in iMovie, the easy option would be converting the AVI files to an iMovie compatible format, like MOV, MP4, or M4V.
