    Reel director sees all my movies. Imovies on my ipad1 only sees the movies I edited thru Reel Director..figures..lol. Plus I double checked using ifiles, all my movies are in mp4 format but for some strange reason imovies not seeing them. Reel director sees everything. Plus reel director has more n better transitions. Works great. Once I save the edited movie to camera roll, NOW imovies can see it, ***..lmao

    If iMovie can’t access your video and photos
    The first time you open iMovie, a message appears asking permission to use your current geographic location. Because photos and videos recorded with your device include location information, you must tap OK to enable iMovie to access photos and videos in the Media Library. If you don’t tap OK at this point, you may need to change your device settings later so it can access your media.

    To enable iMovie to access your video and photos:
    Open the Settings app on your device.
    Open 'general'
    Tap Location Services.

    Turn iMovie on.
    See if that helps.
    That didn't work for me. Plus I did a test n used ifiles to move an mp4 movie into the proper camera roll folder, DcIM/100apple. That didn't really work either as imovies only saw it as a blank. It knew something was there but it had an exclamation mark on it and pressing on it didn't bring up the movie in imovies. I didn't sync it to iTunes though as i hate using that dreaded pc program..lol. I'll try some more to see. As it showed up n played in saved folder no prob. But imovies wouldn't play it or load it up.

    The more I compare iMovie to ReelDirector I wonder why I even both with iMovie. ReelDirector is that much better--in just about every area. I like how it can render a movie in the background and then pop up a notification when it is done.

    Yeah, plus check this out, I found a good work around on compatibility issues of movies. It's a lil extra work nut worth it as both Reel Director and Imovies have their benefits over the other one. Like with imovies, I like all the sound fx and built in themes and theme music.
    Ok here we go,
    1) u need both Reel Director and Imovies. As this is for moving movies that can't be seen thru imovies, but reel director can.

    2)go into reel director, load up the movie u want to use in Imovies. It will then compress the video. Then go back out to main screen. Press the render tab as it will render it making it a final product. Note, rendering the file makes it bigger. For ex. I rendered a 7.8mb file and when it was done, it eneded being like 14mb. Plus thru ifiles, I saw it converts the mp4 into .MOV format.

    3)once completed , press the box to save it to camera roll. Once it's saved. Exit the Reel director app.

    4) start up imovies apps. Press the + sign for new project and now ur movie is seen by imovies and u can edit it now thru that app.

    I like to use a combo of the two apps using various fx and techniques from both. I tried again, with ifiles, to move a mp4 movie into the camera roll folder n imovies still wouldn't see it. I think the movies have to be originally saved in camera roll folder and be in mp4 or mov. Format. The reason imovies could now see the movies thru reel director is because it saved them to camera roll and rendered/converted it to .MOV format. Works every time if u got a movie that reel director sees but imovies doesn't. Just do those steps and it will finally show up in imovies. A lil tedious but works. Plus u can always delete the original movie if u wish cuz in a way,this makes a copy of ur movie but in a way or format to where imovies can see it.

    Dang, now that's messed up. Lol take a movie using ipad2 and imovies still won't see it..that sux. Try going into ur iPad settings. Go to location. Then make sure for imovies it's set to "ON". If that doesn't work. Try the wrk around I posted up that uses reel director app n imovies. Wrks for me ;-)

    So I just synched the iPad and now the videos I recorded show up... I have to SYNC the iPad to get iMovie access to the video I record on the iPad!?

    I turned on locations too, not hot on that personally.

    That's just plain stupid if u have to sync to desktop/laptop iTunes just for it to recognize the dang movie that the Ipad2 itself took. SMDH maybe I have to do the same but for me, the reel director workaround is a lot faster n convenient. I do it all from the iPad. Forget iTunes..lol

    I agree with you there! I downloaded ReelManager after reading this post and guess what I record and THEN edit it in reel manager!
