It lets you organize all your clips, turn them into your favorite videos, films or trailers. If you have recorded some AVI videos by your camera, maybe you want to edit them in iMovie to use many purposes, but always have some troubles with importing AVI to iMovie, such as “nothing showes up on screen” or get "grey out" in the import window, and only audio but no picture.”, etc.

Why can’t import AVI to iMovie?

Firstly you should know what formats iMovie supports. According to Apple, iMovie supports most commonly-used video codecs, including DV, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, AVCHD and AIC. AVI compresses the video with non-conformant compression standard and different video codecs (DivX, Xvid etc) are not compatible with iMovie. So when you can’t import AVI to iMovie, maybe because AVI codecs are not recognized by iMovie.
