Things had been running along fine the last few days... but now I am seeing the "red video" bug on my retina MacBook Pro!
I was trying to do a screen recording using the following steps:
- I temporarially set the screen resolution to Scaled > Larger Text
- Using QuickTime Player I recorded a new Screen Recording
- Saved the file to the Desktop
- I set the screen resolution back to "Best For Display"
(The resulting video played fine from the Finder, but...)
- Opened iMovie and imported the movie and it looked like it had a red filter over it!
The original video still looks fine (viewing directly from the finder). And is also fine in iMovie 9.
Entire thread at the Verge about this:

According to posts in this thread it is happening in a number of different products:

Yeah, apple has somehow missed the fact that both of their video editors have an incompadabilty with .mov files AND OLNY .MOV FILES:
'There’s a strange glitch that gives all .mov files a red tint when imported into Apple’s movie creator'
How the **** did they miss that!?"
I don't know if this helps solve the problem, but I also have this problem importing a screen cap into both Final Cut Pro and iMovie. Maybe this means it's not just iMovie

I exported the screen recorder to a 720p version.
File -> Export -> 720p...
Then made user it saved as a .mov. Worked like a champ. Might be the HD aspect that is throwing off the ratio when going in to iMovie. I didn't try converting it to HD.

I think I found a way to deal with that bug :
Right click on the file that will be red in iMovie, then select something like "encode the selected video files" (here in French) :
Then you'll see that screen (still in French) :
The encoded file is a .m4v and works well in iMovie.
Kind of a tip until Apple correct the bug.

All you have to do when you export from Quicktime is change the file extension.
There's no need to go through all the hoops of converting your file, losing quality, etc. etc.
Just change the extension of the screen cap to .mp4 and it will import with no problems.
Hasn't failed me yet!
