How to Import Videos into iMovie

You can import movies that already reside on your hard drive, including video you created in iMovie HD, into iMovie. Importing video into iMovie does not erase any of the scenes from your camera.

To import iMovie HD projects or others videos on your hard drive (or other disks), choose File→Import Movies or File→Import iMovie HD Project. Either way, search for the location of the video in the Import window.

Next choose where to stash the recording by making a selection in the pop-up menu. Then decide whether to create a new event or add to an existing one.

Videos you’ve already downloaded to your iPhoto Library are readily accessible in iMovie. Merely click iPhoto Videos in the iMovie Event Library list and choose the event you want. The only caveat is that the video must be in a compatible iMovie format.

The first time you open iMovie you may see the message. Click Now to generate thumbnails for the video in your iPhoto library or click Later to postpone this time-consuming chore.
