Question about Video Cameras
I am working on a school project and I'm not quite sure how to get these videos onto iMovie. I've downloaded all of them to become an MP4 (not mpeg4, or whatever) because I thought that's how you do it. It's still not allowing me to add them on. Please help!! my friend tell me video converter for mac can solve this problem: http://www.iorgsoft.com/how-to/import-mp4-to-imovie.html
Just found the following paragraph on a forum to help you:
Why Sometimes Can't Import MP4 to iMovie?
Reason One: iMovie only supports importing MP4 formats with MPEG4/AAC or H.264/AAC data, not all kinds of MP4 formats. Some MP4 files from like Sony, Hybrid camcorders and other devices cannot be accepted by iMovie.
Reason Two: iMovie contains all the essential codecs to read MP4 files. Any different codecs included in audio and subtitle will cause the issue. In the circumstances, we still cannot successfully import MP4 files to iMovie.
How to Import MP4 to iMovie?
All in all, to successfully import MP4 to iMovie, you'd better to convert these MP4 files to iMovie totally compatible MP4 or MOV (QuickTime) formats.
Here is just the detailed guide at How to Solve iMovie Won Import MP4 Video Files

Video files come from Canon Vixia hg20 are in AVCHD format and this is a format which is difficult to be imported and edited by FCP and iMovie. So you have to convert AVCHD files to other easily edited video format, like FCP and iMovie preferred MOV format.
As for AVCHD Converter, have a try Aunsoft MTS Converter for Mac which is is a powerful video converter, player, editor for Mac and Windows. It can play many various movie files; it can encode movies to many formats, including iPod; it can cut, trim and join movies.
You can use this program to open and play most movie formats transport streams; edit them with crop and Trim;export them to QuickTime, AVI, DV and MPEG-4 files with more than professional quality, so you can easily import them in a DVD authoring tool, and use them with many other applications or devices.

Tips for a great answer:
Use File -> Import Movies...
to select your converted video. iMovie will analyze the video and
generate thumbnails, so this can take a few minutes for larger video
we're able to use the video, you'll need to add it to your Project
Library from your Event Library. Just make sure you select the whole
clip, and drag it over to the other side of the screen.
deselect the clip from your Event Library, and select the copy in the
Project Library. To rotate your video, open the Crop menu, make sure
it's set to 'Fit', and use the rotate buttons. When you're sattisfied,
You'll notice that you're video has now been rotated in your Project Library. To export it, go to Share -> Export Movie... or press cmd+E.
As with Windows Live Movie Maker, you can also upload your rotated movie directly to YouTube, or your personal MobileMe Gallery.
