I purchased an SDR-H18 camcorder a little while ago, but I'm only starting to use it now. It shoots fairly good video, but I was pissed beyond description to find out that I can't use the files it produces in iMovie. When I bought it I made sure that it was Mac compatible, so I thought it was a given that I would be able to use iMovie for editing. Those dirty bastards won't let me use anything other than their own god-awful software to edit, though, and it's making me extremely angry. I looked up solutions online and was crestfallen when I couldn't find any. Panasonic support offered no help at all, so now I'm coming to the technically savvy citizens of the pit. Is there a way to do this, or am I stuck with this $600 piece of **** camera?

What is the footage? DV? You can capture that in Imovie. Don't blame Panasonic for not reading the manual.

It imports as mpeg, but whenever i try to open it in iMovie it says it can't parse it.

Well that's because Mpeg is a windows compression.

So is it saved to a harddrive in the camera? No tapes?

Get an Mpeg-quicktime converter. There should be one.

Is there a menu on the actual camera where you can change what format the video is saved to its hardware in?
