Im on a MacG5 1.25G running OSX10.4.11 using iMovie 2.1.2. I have a digital camera that shoots video in .avi format. I understand iMovie needs the video clips to be in DV or Mpeg-4 format. I've tried three different commercial converter programs which have the ability to convert the .avi files, but iMovie refuses to recognize the video files, they remain greyed out when I go to Import File. I even tried converting files to .mov and .vod and Mpeg-2. Still, no go. I cannot use Quicktime Pro to do the conversions as I need to run Classic 9 on my Mac for work, and that limits me to Quicktime 7.0, beyond that there are bad conflicts. But surely a third party conversion utility should work? Where am I going wrong? I just want to do basic video editing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
