    Dear Guru

    I have downloaded divx - encountered one problem in the download (30/31 items downloaded) - but now have one video clip converted to .divx. But I still cannot import it into imovie! What am I doing wrong?

    I have purchased xilisoft video converter but still it does not work. I am now trying my son's new imac to see if a later version of imovie solves the problem.

    Well, older version of imovie were very limited in what file formats could be import.

    the new version of iMovie can import AVI files formats, you camera maybe has a utility to convert video files to suit in iMovie file formats.

    Thats probably works, because old version of IMovie is limited , new version iMovie will resolve the issue.

Well first the application in the CD is an executable file (.exe) and it will not run on a Mac and the only application for your computer in the CD is QuickTime 7.1* & iTunes 7.3 (Windows® 2000/XP, Mac OS) *1080i movie playback is not guaranteed.

as per the videos, the file formats that your camera gives out is only MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 as per its compatibility with iMovies, you may have to use a VIDEO CONVERTER for Mac that will allow you to convert the videos from mp4 - a Mac compatible format so that you will be able to see your videos in your iMovies.

for more info on your camera check the links out below.

    just make sure that the library that you are importing the movie from (iMovies) is where the converted movie is.

    get the latest version of iMovie, because that plays the format your camera save a file to.

    It can definitely be resolved. Your issue will most likely be that the software is meant for a pc and not a mac. As soon as I get the exact model I will be able to give you more accurate information.
    Thanks again,
    Lee

    Lee A. Aug 07, 2008

    What are you referring to when you say 30/31 downloads, what were you downloading? Also I would highly recommend having the latest version of Imovie as well and then making sure have the correct format video. I don't believe Imovie supports divx, if it is not working though it must not support the format you have it in. I would try converting to .avi. Have you gotten the movies onto your computer if so what format are they in?
    Thanks,
    Lee

Importing HD video on a Mac


mac

hi there

have you tried a different medium to which you transfer the videos? what i mean is a different software of your choice.

have you tried also using a driver which your cam is compatible for your mac? most probable cause that you cant import those videos is that your mac itself does not have the correct drivers for the specific files to be imported to.

hope this helps.

I have a Sony HDR-SR1 with video on the hard drive. When I connect it to my iMac via as USB cable, I can see the camera on my desktop, but can't seem to import anything via IMovie. What am I doing...


It is a Hard Disk type Camcorder. Follow the steps as mentioned on the Link given below to transfer the video from the Camcorder to a Mac Computer.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C455202


NOTE: Movie player applications must support MPEG-2 for standard-definition video or AVCHD for high-definition video to open and play these files. Refer to the software manufacturer of the movie player application you are using for additional information and any available updates.

The Apple Macintosh Web site offers MPEG2 Works 4 Advanced 4.2 for download.

The Apple Macintosh Web site has an MPEG-2 Playback component for Quicktime 6 or 7 available for purchase.

Troubleshooting information about importing MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 clips with Apple iMovie software is available on the Apple Macintosh Web site.

For the Apple Mac OS X operating system, DVD authoring software (Capty DVD/VCD 2 ) and MPEG editing software (Capty MPEG Edit EX) is available for purchase from the PIXELA Web site. These applications are for standard-definition video only.



Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 movie downloading and DVD burning


I always recommend having a version of your users manual on your computer, because it is so much easier to search through the manual quickly to find what you are looking for.

You can find a digital version of the users manual for the Sanyo CG9 here, and you will also find the free software for downloading videos to your computer and watching them there.

Once your videos are on your computer, you can burn a data disc without any commercial software. Some DIVX or XVID dvd players will play these data disks and you can watch your movies like that. An .MP4 data DVD will hold much more video than a standard DVD video disk because it squeezes it much tighter. You can play your .mp4 videos through a PS3 using a data dvd or a thumbdrive.

If you want to convert your mp4 videos to a standard dvd that will play in any dvd player, you will need commercial conversion software such as ULead MovieFactory or Nero Vision. MovieFactory was included with some sanyo camcorders, but if you have lost your disk, they do not allow you to download it from their website.

I hope that helps!
