I am trying to import from my Sony DV cam to my Imac desktop using an HDMI cable. I have done this for years. For this particular event I purchased Sony Premium DV ME60 tapes. The problem is that I import one minute of video to a new Imovie 11 project, when I play it back the clip is two seconds. So it is sped up by 300%.
I am hoping against hope it is an Imovie issue as I need the footage! I did import onto my old old MacBook Pro to Imovie HD Pro 6.0.3 and it did the same thing.
Audio is also messed up with camera playback, but not when it plays back on the computer
I have noticed tremendous problems with my IMovie since I went from 10. to 10.7.4 Gets stuck generating thumbnails. I am working with Apple on this.
