: imovie workflow.........

Dec 7th, 2007, 10:42 AM
I am a new Imac 2.4 user. I have my wedding video on DVD (unedited) and would like cut it up edit it a bit and use idvd to burn.

So my workflow so far.....

Handbreak to convert Vob to MP4.
When I drag to import into imovie and time needed 26000 minutes.

So I converted again using lower quality but still 6 hours to import.

I realize these are huge files so is this normal or is there a more effecient way of doing this???
