Import Video Clips into iMovie

Someone just let me know that it took 4 hours to import their footage into iMovie. iMovie wants to convert any video it uses into raw dv, and this process can take a huge amount of time.

But there is a way to get around it.

  1. Create an iMovie project, if you haven’t already.
  2. Close iMovie.
  3. Right-click on the project file and choose “Show Package Contents.”
  4. Browse to the Media folder.
  5. Place your clips in the folder.
  6. Open your iMovie project.
  7. Click the VIEW TRASH button.
  8. Drag your clips to the clips pane.

I’ve been able to do this with .mov, .dv and .mpg.

Polarization of Networks

A more non-political example of Benkler’s argument concerning the audience-orientation of certain media is this Levi’s jeans commerical that alludes to a homosexual couple. From my experience, this commercial was only shown on the more liberal, youth-orientated stations such as Bravo and MTV. I don’t know if most of you have seen this, but I thought I would post it anways.

No, this has little to no critical value for us, except that we might argue that YouTube gives us a great way to try to see our own faces in other people.

Anyway, I think this has been roving the vast series of tubes for a while, but I just found it this morning.
