Can i turn an imovie project into an Mpeg file to work on a Windows System?

Hi is there a way of turning an iMovie production into a standard MPeg format to play on windows operating system???

Once i have created and imovie project i am needing to turn it into an bog standard MPeg that will play within a powerpoint presentation supported by windows media player .mov .avi etc don't work not very techy... The only way i have managed to do this so far is to create a dvd then turn it into MPeg using pinnacle on a windows system but i lose a vast amount of quality
I was saying that if you have the right software you can create MPG, MPEG (MPEG2/MPEG-1, layered audio), M2V/AIFF paired elementary stream clips, VOB (MPEG2/AC3 or MPEG2/PCM), TS MPEG-2 stream files, etc., and you would need decide on which typr of file you wanted. If you want VOB with MPEG2/PCM content, then let iDVD image a file and all you have to do is copy the VOB(s) from the image,

  • How can I export an iMove Project if the Event file was deleted?  (Missing Media error message)

    Deep iMovie question:
    I accidentally deleted various EVENT files from my iMove EVENTS folder.  Yes, they are really gone ... this is NOT a matter of restoring them from the trash.
    The projects are still there ... I can still watch the projects as long as I am in iMovie ... but if I try to export the Project I get the MISSING MEDIA error message.
    Logic tells me that if I can view the project ... the  file has to be SOMEWHERE inside my computer ... else I couldn't be watching it ... right?  I mean what am I watching if not some file somewhere which has moving pictures stored in it?
    So HOW do I get to something I can export?  What am I watching when I watch the project?
    I have iMove 08 on iMac with OS 10.6.8
    Normally works great for my simple needs ... except if you move or delete an event file ...
    Can anyone out there help? 
    thank you,
    Natasya

    If you don't have the original files then I'm afriad you don't have anything to work with.

  • Making an iMovie project into a MPEG

    Hi there, I'm very new to the iMovie+iDVD thing, but basically I would like to make an iMovie project an actual Movie (MPEG).
    Any help is very much appreciated.
    Cheers, Ricky.

    I want to get my movie onto a CD at the highest quality.
    When I select to share at "full quality," it's 780 MB, which is too big for my 700 MB CD.
    What's the next best option that would play on most computers?
    Or can I override the default for full quality and have it compressed slightly more?
    Thanks.

  • How can I turn my iMovie DVD into a quicktime video? The original is no longer saved on my mac.

    I have made a handful of movies through iMovie. Burned them onto DVD and erased the original videos that were created years ago. I would like to take my DVDs and somehow put them onto my Apple TV. I'm assuming the answer would be to create them in quicktime. I'm having trouble and have a bad feelilng this idea can't be done. Please advise.
    Thanks.

    use the free tool Handbrake.
    it offers presets to convert DVDs straight into an AppleTV-compliant format.

  • Can i export an Imovie project with special effects as a quick time movie then import into final cut express keeping the special effects?

    Hi, Can i export an Imovie project with special effects as a quick time movie then import into final cut express keeping the special effects?

    Absolutely.  Go to File->Export->QuickTime Movie (do NOT use QuickTime Conversion).  Make sure you check the Self-Contained box.  The export will be an exact copy of your Sequence, complete with any filters or other effects you've added.  Import the self-contained movie back into the project (or another project) if needed.

  • Importing imovie project into Final Cut Pro

    Hello I need help getting my HD imovie project into final cut pro. I recored the project in 24p and it's already imported into imovie. What is the best way to get it into Final Cut Pro so that I can edit it further without sacrificing the quality.
    Another problem is that I have heard that imovie compresses the video and totally ruins the quality. Is this true? And is this reversible in any way? I have already recorded over all the clips for this project on my camcorder. How screwed am I?
    -Michael

    First thing to do is find your original clips that you captured in IMovie. I don't have much experience in IMovie, but see if you can select a clip and control click and choose reveal in finder. If that works, open one of these clips in quicktime player and hit command-i and let us know the format of the clip.
    Kind of doubt you'll be able to actually import your project into fcp, but you should be able to recreate it in fcp without too much difficulty.
    Let us know what camera you shot and captured from. That may be of some help.
    Hopefully someone with more experience in IMovie will speak up, but hopefully this will get us started.

  • How do you import multiple iMovie projects into one iDVD project?

    Hi.
    I'm 17, and am trying to create a DVD of when the family went on a cruise. For different places/days, I've created different iMovie projects.
    But, when I want to export to iDVD, it only lets me put one iMovie project into one iDVD project?
    I've tried dragging the actual iMovie project files into iDVD but that doesn't work.
    I know I could export to QuickTime and then drag it into iDVD, but it seems exporting just to iDVD is much quicker, and the quality is better.
    Anyone know how I can do this?
    cheers
    +P.S. If it helps, it's iMovie '11 with iDVD '09.+

    That is not true. You can use them all in one DVD. I have just created my first DVD which has a trailer, a movie with chapters and several different slide shows.
    All you have to do is save each project to Media Browser. (Choose Share in toolbar). Open iDVD and choose your theme or no theme. On the right will be all your options such as audio, media photo's etc. Choose your various video's/projects etc and just drag and drop which ones you want to the page and they will automatically put themselves there with the given name of each video/project.

  • Low quality of burned DVD even if I drag&drop iMovie project into iDVD

    Hi all,
    I've a iMovie HD project that I want to burn via iDVD (7.0.4).
    If I click "Share with iDVD" the quality of the resultung video (which is burned to DVD) is rather poor. As I've read within this discussions, the preferred way is to close iMovie and "drag and drop" the iMovie project into iDVD.
    With this way, iDVD (instead of iMovie) will render the movie, which should give a video with far more quality.
    Unfortunately, the burned DVD with the "drag and drop" method has the same low quality as the video with "Share with iDVD".
    I've done a little research and noticed that the "shared movie" for iDVD (iMovie project->Show package Contents->Shared Movies->iDVD) for a 1:10 video has a filesize of only 32kb!
    Is there any way to set the "export" parameters for this "shared movie" (it is a quicktime file)?
    The quality of the completed DVD is acceptable if I export the iMovie project to "DV stream" an import this stream into iDVD. But in this case I lose all my chapter markers of the movie ..
    Is there any way to export the movie from iMovie HD and keep all the chapter markers for iDVD?
    Importing the iMovie HD project into iMovie 08/09 is not an option, as I lose the chapter markers also ..
    Thanks in advice,
    Kind regards.

    Hi,
    the iMovie project was created as "DV" project and I imported DV PAL clips. The iDVD preferences are also PAL (25fps) and the quality setting is "professional quality".
    I've also tried the setting "best performance" within iDVD (as suggested within this forum), but with the same poor result.
    I can see within the iDVD "project info" that iDVD will use "mymovie.mov" within the "Shared Movies->iDVD" of the iMovie project (Show package contents).
    As this converted movie is of low quality, I think this is the root of evil.
    If I export the movie from iMovie with "Export as DV stream" and import this converted movie into iDVD the quality is ok - but I lose the chapter markers ..
    Is there any way to keep the chapter markers?
    Kind regards.

  • I want to import one imovie project into another one.  In other words, I have created a short sequence in iMovie 11 on one computer, and I want to import it into a project that I am working on, on another computer.

    I want to import one imovie project into another one.  In other words, I have created a short sequence in iMovie 11 on one computer, and I want to import it into a project that I am working on, on another computer.  I copied the project files onto a hard drive, and then connected that drive to the Mac that my main project is on, but when I select "import" the files are faint gray -meaning I can't select them.  Help!  I want to transfer a sequence of shots from one iMovie 11 project on one computer, into another iMovie 11 project on another computer.

    Tell me it ain't so!
    I wish I could.  The research you've done is correct.
    Wether you copy and paste or rebuild the Project from the other computer, you're going to need to get your Evnets copied from the other computer.
    The Prjoject files only contain pointer back to the original media.

  • Incorporate existing iMovie project into new, longer one

    I have an 8-minute iMovie project, with lost of careful editing (multiple sounds tracks, transitions, etc.)
    I need to incorporate it as one section in a longer iMovie project I'm now working on. But when it becomes the one section of a larger project, I have to shorten it in half, to be only 4 minutes.
    Two questions:
    1) How do you insert an existing iMovie project into a new one -- bring over all the pieces at once, with everything in tact (music, transitions, etc.)?
    2) This is a little more complicated. Since I have to boil down the 8 minute piece to 4 minutes, I'd rather not have to go back into the original and do painstaking editing -- which would involve rejiggering transitions, music fades, and all kinds of things. I'd rather export it to Quicktime, bring that into the new, larger iMovie project, where I can crop out parts I don't want and tie togehter the remaining pieces with transitions.
    My concern: when I export original 8 minute project to Quicktime, doesn't that compress it? If so, and I bring that already-compressed Quicktime into new, longer iMovie project, when the new one is finished and I export it out to a DVD (end product) -- won't that be re-compressing the already compressed portion?
    Thanks for any insights.

  • Pls advise current info as to combining 3 iMovie projects into one iMovie. Thanks!

    Pls advise current info as to combining 3 imovie projects into one imovie.  I will finish with idvd.
    I am in a rush today to complete a video for my brother's memorial for tomorrow.  Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply, Klaus. I'm just now getting to try your suggestion to copy and paste from timeline rather than drag and drop from clipviewer. Alas, it seems to be choking terribly on the transfer. This video is not a 60 minute movie, either; it's about ten minutes. I has about 60 files to it. I did get to the point where I felt confident enough to empty the trash and save the project, so I assume the clips that are there are not still "attached" to the unedited dvs.
    Earlier I tried to export, in the advanced settings, to the full quality dv, but the quality really dropped, way too much for the intended use. I'm pretty much stumped at this point, unless I can hear some other suggestions.
    What I might try doing is simply dragging and dropping all the packet contents of the media folder into the other movie's media folder, but then I suspect I'll have to rebuild the darn thing from bits and pieces and it may be like putting Humpty Dumpty back together again...ugh.
    I'm sure I'm not the first person to face this challenge, am I? Of course, my lesson learned is to build one dvd's contents in one imovie project. If it weren't for the fact that I need to offer viewers the option to "play movie" (play all the videos as one movie) I'd simply drag each movie into iDVD and do it that way (the dvd showing each video separately).
    Would still love to hear of other possible solutions here, before trying some other forum.
    thanks!

  • Combining several iMovie projects into one, time-not space-being the factor

    Hello,
    Space is not an issue (large external drive), but I'm trying to figure out the fastest way to combine several iMovie projects into one (so each movie will become a chapter in iDVD). I'm pretty sure there must be a better way than I'm attempting, selecting all the clips in clipviewer, then dragging and dropping to the new project clipviewer. As I've done this, the "time remaining" window keeps growing (started out about 4 minutes, climbed to "92 minutes remaining," then I aborted the move). Details: each movie is about 8-10 minutes long, widescreen, made up of various (sometimes many) dv clips, audio segments, still photos, etc.
    I have added dv clips to a project via the media folder (project unopened), but this was a single item and simple to move from trash into the project. In this case, I'm not sure what to move in order to save the entire project intact.
    Thanks so much for any help,
    b

    Can I merge my Imovie project with cutaways to another project?, Can I merge my Imovie project with cutaways to another project?

    First, Share your other project. Use SHARE/EXPORT TO QUICKTIME. Choose Movie to QuickTime Movie. Under Options, choose Apple Intermediate Codec for Compression under Video Options. Save this movie where you can find it.
    Then use FILE/IMPORT MOVIE to import this movie into your Event. Now you can use it as a Cutaway.

    The performance fixes is a biggy for me, though the other missing
    stuff I use makes me have to use both versions for various things:
    "but they seem to be committed to another release/version."
    Well ... now that's the rub. I would actually welcome this intermediate version to play with (even with the cost of upgrading) if I could rely on it to be finalized into 6.0, full featured, without it taking as long as it has to Upgrade from AA3.0. I would say it was a VERY smart move to give us a preview of 6.0, if I felt in, say, six months they would provide us the fully functional update. But, HOW many years has it been. I felt screwed over while they played around with Sound Booth.
    I was with you for a minute in most of what you said, until your credibility went down a couple notches with me on the statement trivializing midi functionality. I though that was a very clueless statement:
    "but I have no need for a midi controller and if I want a drummer to keep perfect time I'll get a drum machine."
    It does make some of your other statements suspect, tho I won't take it as far as therealdobro's "what's your stake" question.
