As flip camcorders are easy to use, flexible, quick, convenient to carry, and allow you to take videos on the fly with HD quality, more and more people start to use them to capture videos. But if you want to import videos captured by flip camcorder into iMovie to edit, sometimes they might be rejected. Then what should you do under this condition? The easiest and fastest way is certainly to transfer flip video to iMovie 10.0/'11/'09/'08/iMovie HD supported formats.
The Flip Video cameras are a series of tapeless camcorders for digital video created by Pure Digital Technologies, variants included the UltraHD, the MinoHD, and the SlideHD. The standard definition Flip camcorders capture videos in 640 x 480 resolution using the MPEG-4 ASP video compression and the FlipHD camcorders digitally record at High-definition video 1280 x 720 resolution using H.264 video compression and the MP4 file format.
