I converted a film(45 mins) from a DVD with Handbrake as mp4 (the file plays in the QuickTime Player afterwards).


I imported the file- It took about an hour to import, and then the video is not there. It lists the import under events, but there is no clip available.


Shorter (15 minutes) handled exactly the same way work just fine. I am able to edit and finalize shorter videos with no problem.


Does anyone know what is wrong with the program?


Please help?

iMovie '11, Mac OS X (10.0.x)
