You can Import your MPEG-4 captured video footage into iMovie ’09 by following these steps:
- In iMovie, Choose File > Import > Movies.
- In the window that opens, navigate to your camcorder's mounted disk image on your desktop.
- Search for the MPEG-4 (the files will end in ".MP4") movies you wish to import and then click the Import button.
Note: Captured video footage in hybrid camcorders vary in where they are saved based on several variables, such as the camcorder's brand type. If you are unable to locate the MPEG-4 files, consult your camcorder's user manual or manufacturer for more information on where footage is saved.
iMovie '11 (version 9.0.1 and later) allows you to import from multiple formats using Camera Import.
