Hmm
I `ve found free mov converter:
http://www.fxbear.com/free-mov-converter.php

or this one with free trial
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/comm...wmv-converter/


but i have no idea if converting gonna help with your problem

You can try using one of those: Adobe Premiere, Pinnacle Studio, Final Cut Pro( they all commercial but maybe you can find a free trial as well)

Cheers

They totally rewrote the program for the iLife 08 suite. There was such an outcry at abandoning the previous version of iMovie that you can download it free, if you own the current version. Check the iMovie section of the Apple site.

I was thinking about this this morning. I wanted to ask, just how long were you recording your tutorial for the Orloff piece?

I ask this because 16 gigabytes seems considerably large for a video - it's as if it was recorded in uncompressed formatting.
The problem of importing it may be due to its size; though not familiar with iMovie, et al, it is unable to load the entire file into memory, hence you are unable to do anything with it.

I also presume you are working on a Mac, based on the software you are using.
With IshowU, consider performing a few "test tutorials" of about a minute in length.
When doing so, consider trying different presets to and then review the final file size of each test video.

If you're going to present the videos on the web, choose a size and resolution that will be web-friendly (i.e.: no HDTV 720p resolution, etc)

Consider also, recording your tutorials in smaller step-lessons and then see if you are able to work with them in Imovie.

I am not a Mac user and cannot provide any better suggestions.

What I may suggest as an alternative for serious tutorial creation on a Mac is Snapz Pro X.
It is not all that expensive ($69.00) and allows you to record in increments and then finalize it all into a single web-friendly file.

Hope that helps
