    I-movie, has anyone used it for their home movies?

    Didn't get the 16GB Ipad 2, yet. Just missed it by about 3 people. Might be a blessing in disguise. I have noticed that my home movies (high definition) are around 12GB. It seems that I need more than the 16GB version of the Ipad 2. BUT how good is I-movie? It is a $4.99 app, I don't want to spend an extra $100 for 32 GB for a $4.99 app that is "ok". Appreciate any advice or thoughts.

    Imovies is good, but ReelDirector has more n better transitions. Tjose files are huge u mentioned. Even if u get the highest capacity iPad, u could only put about 4-5 of this 12 gb hd movies on it b4 filling up to capacity. I would do them one at a time then transfer back to PC or compress them or something. Those files are wayy to big unless that's the only purpose u want ipad2 for, to edit movies. It's good to have both imovies and ReelDirector. They compliment each other and u could do somethin on one, then load it into the other app to finish it off or add tx or whatever that wasn't in the one u used originally.
    With files as large as those, u won't have any room for decent apps or anything.

    Thanks. I plan on doing one movie at a time and storing them on my 1 TB external drive.

    It also appears that I may have other problems too. My HD movies are .tod format. I don't think I-movie will recognize it; this might be too much of a hassle. Apple - Support - Discussions - How do I get iMovies to see my imported ...

    But this will not prevent me from buying the Ipad-2. I just want to see if I can use it for my movies too. Oh well.

    Well it looks like you have to use the camera connection kit to import movies to i-movie, Apple - Support - Discussions - iPad 2 iMovie ...

    Now the question becomes can you import, using the camera connection kit, movies from your external hard drive.

    I posted about it in the Apple support forums and Macrumors.

    Basically the only way to do it with random movies right now, and I've only tested it with iPhone .MOV files, is to do this:

    1) Have a Jailbroken iPhone with whatever movies you want to copy over on it.

    2) On the Jailbroken phone, open up iFile

    3) Navigate to the directory where the movie is located and select the arrow to select the movie

    4) Scroll to the bottom and choose "Save to Camera Roll"

    5) Connect the iPhone via the Camera Connector Kit to the iPad

    6) Import your videos

    7) Profit!!

    ^ Thanks, I think I will stick with my PC for editing movies. When looking at the Ipad 2 Guided Tours I knew something was up when they talk about using video from Ipad 2, Iphone 4, or Ipod touch. Apple - iPad - Guided Tours

    I am a little surprised that they did not mention the camera connection kit. Also, they did not mention anything about importing videos. Who would use their Ipad 2 or Iphone 4 or Ipod touch for their vacation videos?! Unless you want to remember it by way of crappy video and stills?!

    Still getting the Ipad 2, but not for movie editing.

    Just tested an M4V file and no dice. It shows up in the camera roll, but won't work to import into iMovie.

    I dont' feel like trying to convert a file, but I have a *.MOV file from another camera that I'll try.

    Andsoitgoes, I think the M4V is OK to impot into iMovies, suppose there are something wrong with the iMovie or the M4V files extension is defferent?

    BTW: for home videos and movies sharing on iPad, found this wiki article might can do some help:
