Import/convert/transfer/put HD video into iMovie
What is HD video? According to the Wikipedia, HD video or high definition video
refers to any video system of higher resolution than standard-resolution (SD) video.
The HD specification dictates a number of areas of the HD format but most
particularly and importantly it specifies the frame size and dimensions of the image.
Compared with the existing standard definition who has fixed dimensions of
720*576 for PAL and 720*480 for NTSC, the HD specification allows for two
different HD frame sizes, a smaller 1280*720 and a larger 1920*1080 which are
commonly referred as 720p and 1080i/1080p.

Why should we convert HD videos to common video files
Getting uncompressed HD content onto a computer for editing or processing will be
a straightforward process with the corresponding storage requirements satisfied for its
huge size. The first issue in storage is sustained bandwidth and big enough capacity is
also an inevitable factor, besides, there are also other requirements. Therefore, if you
don't have the corresponding configuration, you will have to turn to another way. For
example, in order to import HD videos to iMovie for editing, you only need a simple
converting process, that is, convert HD videos to iMovie compatible files, which is
what our movie converter for Mac can do.
