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:

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

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.
Apr 29, 2011
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?
