    Tech Distortion Import Non-iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad 2 Video into iMovie 1.2 for iOS

    Yes, converting is easy, syncing through iTunes is also easy. What we're looking for are options so we don't have to convert or sync. Meaning we can hook the camera up to the iPad and import straight away. Like a "Post-PC" device should

    I have panasonic camera FZ18 which makes .mov video files and it is easy to import pictures or video files into iPad2 through camera connection kit - SD cad.
    after import I can find video files in Camera roll watch them. Those video files Is not able to use in iMove but I can use Reeldirector for conversion of files to visible - readable for iMove. In this process Is not necessary use PC or MAC to do conersion. And good is that I can do it during family holiday without any other device.

    Sounds like I could do that with my TZ7 then? I generally shoot in AVCHD though and nothing I've tried so far lets me use these files in iMovie.

    Smooth process.

    I switched my Panasonic TZ7 from AVCHD to MOV, but the size is x3 and the hassle and time (I'd say about 0.2x on the iPad 1) of opening in ReelDirector AND rendering isn't really worth it.

    Interesting video, but the solution is already available for many of us. The iPhone 4 has much more storage than the flip, and you can also plug in directly into the same camera connection kit and import to iPad/iMovie with no conversion.

    Also, why do conversions of different video formats on the iPad just to say it was all done on a post PC device? Most of us have powerful desktop computers that will make the conversions easy, about 20 times faster, and with free apps. You still have to do the conversion, no steps are saved, and converting in Reeldirector is painfully slow.

    I guess the flip is a nice option if you don't have an iPhone 4 which is an awesome HD camera when used with one of the apps that gives you total manual white balance, focus, and exposure.

    A few things. #1 I don't have an iPhone and likely never will. #2 I don't have a laptop that works with my iOS devices nor would I take it on a trip with me (old PowerBook G4).

    This leaves someone like me basically post-PC by default when out of town. Being able to use non-apple resources on what will basically be my centralized device is quite useful.

    Maybe I should add to my signature "Just because you don't see a use doesn't mean isn't one."

    That's cool with me, as long as I can add to my signature, "just because you don't have an iPhone doesn't mean nobody else in this forum does either."

    The video said "I don't know of anything else that works with high def video at this point", and the flip, iPad, and camera connection kit were the most "slimmed down feature rich camera suite at this time".

    I'm just clarifying that the iPhone4, iPad, and camera connection kit has the identical utility for shooting, directly importing and editing video in iMovie.

    As to importing other video formats in the field, Reeldirector is cheap and a good solution, but there's a definite time penalty for the convenience.

    If Apple released that iPad and it didn't work with the iPhone that would really be something wouldn't it? As such I didn't feel it deserved a comment since it is beyond obvious.

    1. The iPad is marketed to people as a "Post-PC" device. Not a "Use this to consume data and buy things" device. I produce content and like to De-Clutter my device chain to get that content out at the highest quality possible... I see no better reason than that, but I can go on.

    2. I spend time outdoors away from PCs and Laptops.
    3. I spend time in Hotels and if the iPad can't do this, then I would leave it at home and take my i7 Laptop. Which then makes the iPad redundant.

    I totally agree that the iPhone has a great camera and works with the iPad 2.

    Do me a favor though and answer me this question. Why are you begrudging to a person trying to get more functionality out of an expensive device? Please understand that I get why Apple is restrictive on what can work with what and when, but that should not stop the consumer from trying to get what they can to make the device work for them.

    I hear the same comment alot from others (many on this forum). Like I shouldn't expect to get the most for my money.

    This is a discussion forum where information is shared that can be relevant to a large cross section of users. Nothing is, or was directed at you, there are others reading these posts.

    I'm not begrudging anything, just observing the other choices that were ommited in the video above that may be obvious to you, but not necessarily new members of the forum.

    Please show me any Apple marketing that says the iPad is a post-PC device. The entire iPad ecosystem is clearly built around phoning home to iTunes. It's not a laptop or a device that does well without another computer.

    And how does the sharing of information keep you from doing whatever you
    Like with iPad. In fact, this thread has already offered information on how to get almost any video format into iMovie. No one's trying to keep you from getting the most for your money.
