    i am new to ipad and have the new one. i have worked as a graphic artist for 10 years and am not new to imovie or photoshop etc. I am trying to learn imovie on the ipad. i have two questions, sorry if they have been covered.
    i've downloaded both movies and photos from my camera but cannot find a way to include those movies into imovie. is there a way?
    Next, can i proceed to edit that created movie on my imac. I have moved it into itunes and saved it on my hard drive but imovie, latest version, on the mac can't see it.
    thanks,
    Jeriabel

    Unfortunately from what I know iMovie only works with videos taken with the iPad. I've seen a couple of threads where people are asking about it but there's no way yet.

    All of the video editing software outputs in mp4 format so it wouldn't matter which app you have. Try ReelDirector. Or perhaps the new videolicious app only for ipad2...which is free.

Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    reel director works

    some of the posts said to try reel director to render the .mp4's into .mov.
    I bought it and tried and it works great. my camera movies aren't too big. only a few seconds to about 30, and the rendering wasn't terribly long. And they went into the camera roll and right into imovie.
    thanks for the info.

    I have transferred movie from iPhone 4 to the iPad using the camera connection USB adaptor, and plugging the iPhone cable in there. Also done it with wifi transfer. Edited the movies on the iPad iMovie just fine. Lots of fun, in fact.

    My guess is that you could imported it as a single video clip, which you could then split and edit, however I would not expect iMovie 11 to be able to import it as a project. To do that, I would import the individual clips and start afresh.

    I hadn't tried this, just my expectations.
