How to convert AVI to iMovie easy
Question 1: avi in imovie.
My Canon Powershot camera takes movies in .avi which does not support in imovie. I got the divx codec to play them in quicktime, but I still would like to import and edit them on iMovie.
Question 2: avi on imovie.
Is it AVI compatible with iMovie and is there free software that will allows to convert avi to .mp4 or any other format compatible with imovie?
Question 3: imovie avi import
When I try to import AVI files from my Flip Mino video camera to iMovie, it crashes and shuts down before they import... I need help. Also, even if I try to just play a file in finder, quicktime will crash. It is weird, because the files worked perfectly on my old PC. Help please!
