I cannot get iMovie to import any video from an SD card plugged into my (new) MB Air SD card slot.
The movie was taken with my Canon camera and plays back in the camera perfectly. I've tried copying the contents from the card to the Desktop and tried various iMovie import options but the app merely states there's nothing to import.
Oddly, also when I ask iM to "Import from Camera" it hangs for a minute before the import window opens. When it does open, the green LED on the MB glows. I've checked the import options at the bottom of the window to look for video on the SD card..... nothing, zilch!
What's going wrong people? Help please.
The problem lies the video format, I guess that your Canon camera takes videos in AVCHD MTS or H.264 MOV in 1080p format, both these two video formats are not supported by iMovie (previous imovie only support 720p videos, the lates version may supports 1080p), you can convert the AVCHD or H.264 MOVto ProRes MOV for iMovie, then you will be able to edit the videos freely in iMovie. the tool you need is just a AVCHD Converter for Mac, which I have been using to convert HD camera videos to iMovie.You can have a try.
