    The only thing you can import into iMovie is iPhone Video. Nothing more or less.

    There is a specific FPS, Resolution, whatever that is defined somewhere, but it is clear that iMovie is ONLY designed for iOS movie files. That's why it runs so damn well.

    With regards to putting videos on your iPad, the easiest solution, IMO, is AirVideo and its offline conversion. It couldn't be any more simple. No codecs, no fiddling, just AirVideo.

    I dont' feel like trying to convert a file, but I have a *.MOV file from another camera that I'll try.
    Get reel director app. Load up that movie in there. Press render. It'll convert it to .MOV file. Then save to camera roll. Now that movie can be seen and recognized by imovies. I did a write up on that wrk around in another similar thread. It renders and converts the vids pretty fast also, so it ain't like u waiting all day. Thru this method, I can get imovies to see all my movies. Only gripe is, how come reel director app can see all my movies from the start and not imovies? All my movies are mp4 format which is supposedly supported by imovies. It may be that the movies have to be in camera roll folder and in .MOV format. I've moved mp4 movies to my saved folder n imovies still wouldn't see them..lol

    I went and tried the same with a Sony dsc- tx7, a canon g10 , 7d and had the same results as you. I'll try to work on this over the next couple days.

    That wasn't my video and I believe you will not be able to overcome the problem because your sony is in a format that won't work with imovie. Anyway try it, also you might want to read a post or 2 above this one where someone posted a workaround. Good luck and let us know if you got it working
