It records in MPEG 2 format which needs to be converted before it can be used by either iMovie or FCE. The application includes a built-in converter that converts the MPEG 2 video to H.264 MPEG 4 and automatically imports it to iMovie 09. You would need to do that first and then transfer from iMovie to FCE. There would be no conversion going from iMovie to FCE.


If you have a full version of Toast you can use its convert options to convert the MPEG 2 video to a format for importing to FCE without bothering with iMovie.

How do you convert the MPEG2 in Toast and what format would you use please.




If you have the full version of Toast (not the Toast Basic that came with the capture device) then choose the Convert window, choose Video Files, add the MPEG 2 video and click the red button. In the window that appears I recommend choosing Digital Video (DV) as the format.
