It's easy to gets your video clips and home movies into iMovie '11. You can capture directly from a Firewire video camera, an iSight camera, a tapeless video camera, or even import video files and old

それは、iMovie '11にあなたのビデオクリップやホームムービーを取得するのは簡単です。あなたは、Firewireビデオカメラ、iSightカメラ、テープレスビデオカメラ、またはお使いのMacからでも、インポートするビデオファイルと古いiMovie HDプロジェクトから直接キャプチャすることができます。


For now, let's focus on getting your footage into iMovie!


カメラを接続し、iMovieが自動的に認識します。インポートウィンドウが表示されます。あなたがカメラの内容を、早送り、巻き戻し、停止して再生するトランスポートコントロールを使用することができます。テープを巻き戻し、iMovieに、テープ全体の内容をキャプチャする自動をクリックしてください。 マニュアルを選択すると、あなたがしたいビデオの部分だけを選択して記録することができます。


インポート]ウィンドウが自動的に表示されない場合、以下に示すように、 カメラの[インポート]ボタンをクリックしてください



最近のMacのは、iSightカメラが内蔵されている。実際には、日付に、唯一のMac ProとMac MiniはiSghtカメラを(また、MacBook Airの"FaceTimeのカメラ"と呼ばれる)が含まれていません。あなたは簡単にiMovieにライブビデオを記録するためにこれを使用することができます。

  • Click on the Camera Import Button and select the Built-in iSight camera.
  • Click on the Capture button to begin recording and click Done when finished.
  • The clips appear in the iMovie Event area.



If you have already transferred movie files from a USB Camcorder to your Mac or you're working on movie files you didn't shoot, you can import Quicktime movie files into iMovie directly:
File > Import movies...

You can decide where to save the movie project to, whether to add it to an existing Event (similar to iPhoto's Events) or create a new Event.

Also, you can choose whether the movie files are imported at their original size or are optimized for smoother playback and better performance by importing them at a lower resolution of 960x540. You can choose to copy the movie or move the movie files to the iMovie project location.


For those of you jumping over to the world of iMovie'11 from an iMovie HD version (e.g. iMovie '06 HD), you can import your old projects! Simply choose: File > Import > iMovie HD Project...

Be aware that while this will allow you to continue working on your iMovie HD projects there are some elements of your legacy project that will not import:

  • Custom transitions will be replaced by Cross Dissolves
  • No Titles or Music will be imported
  • No Video effects will be imported

幸いにも、iMovie'11は風のエフェクト、トランジション、タイトルに操作できます。これらのすべてがリアルタイムで適用されていませんので、ないムービーを編集するには、続行する前に終了するレンダリングプログレスバーのためにそこに待っている!これは、iMovie'11でこれまで使ってきたよりもはるかに速く処理をしてiMovie HDプロジェクトの編集を行う必要があります。関係なく、古いレガシープロジェクトのバックアップを必ず作成しておいてください!

  • You haven't mentioned how to import videos that are in iPhoto, into iMovie '11. It will import the still photos, but won't import the movies.

    Hi Mac User. You can either directly import videos from your still camera into iMovie (by connecting the camera - if it's compatible)... or... In iMovie 11's Event Library you should see a heading called "iPhoto Videos". This is where your videos imported into iPhoto can be accessed - so there's no need to directly import them as they'll appear in the Event Browser area. Hope that helps R

  • I have a macbook air software version 10.6.4 and I cannot connect to Sony GV-HD700/1 video recorder. The videos are on small magnetic video tape and I wish to import them to imovies.

    Sure. You need to turn your camera on in play mode, connect it to your Mac (via Firewire) and then launch iMovie. Click on the Import button and you should be able to control your camera from the iMovie interface and choose what footage to capture in real-time.

  • But does Macbook Air have a firewire port.

    No. The current macBook Air models only have USB 2.0 connectivity. There are rumors that the next MacBook Air will feature the new Thunderbolt connection which will hopefully be able to convert from Firewire to Thunderbolt - when manufacturers create and release the connections to market. What connection does your Sony GV-HD700/1 have?
