Posted on October 11, 2008 by JamieBee
Ok – This is great! So EASY!!! I just wrote this long post on how to convert all kinds of crazyness and then I found this! If you just wait. and wait. and wait. and wait! it works fine! Straight from the JVC HDD Camcorder into iMovie.
Here are the simple steps:
Open iMovie. Connect JVC HDD Camera. WAIT.
It should just pop up automatically if not go to File – Import from Camera and then WAIT! Wait.
Camera will be detected and it will scan contents.
wait. wait. wait. while iMovie generates thumbnails.
The Camera window will appear. Keep waiting while it continues to load thumbnails.
wait. wait. wait and wait some more.
FINALLY after all the thumbnails have loaded.
Now you can watch your videos! and Import All.
I did not want to Import All 3 years of video and I could not figure out how to import just one. Has anyone figured this out? Good Luck and let me know if you have any other tricks.
