How to Import Converted MKV Files to iMovie?

Step 1: Importing MKV files to iMovie is a procedural mission just like any other. You have to follow the outlined guidelines in making sure everything goes as planned and succeeds without fail. Even as you go through this user guideline, it is important to point out that iMovie only imports video files that it will be able to do editing. Therefore, make sure your MKV files are in a situation of being edited without causing many problems. Launching your iMovie program will be the initial step to allow you create a new project on the timeline. The files have to be easily viewed on the timeline because that is where all the editing takes place.?

Step 2: Set the project theme, the name of the project, put in the aspects ratio as well as the frame rate. All these have to be attended to before proceeding. Once the clips have been imported to the iMovie, they will be stored in the Events Library but first things first. How do you get the video files to the Event Library? Your options are wide open and many. If you are getting the footage from the camera, have it connected to the Mac physically and different types of cameras have different connections. You have to be informed on that very well.?

Step 3: From the iMovie, you will be able to see the import window which has some key elements for your understanding. The upper part has a preview window and all selected clips will be showing under that window. Below that, you will see the play controls which consist of pause, play, stop and forward buttons. When through with importing the footage from your camera, click the "done" button on the right side of the iMovie window after which it will close down. There is a sheet that will come up immediately with two options; add your imported video to an existing event or create a fresh event. You should be wise enough to determine which among the two options will play to your advantage.
