I've been "nominated" to video my mother's upcoming birthday party at the end of this month, but right now, I'm a little confuddled as to what the output files of any camera I get should be.
I'm planning on using iMovie '09 to edit the footage and possibly burn onto DVDs for distribution amongst the family members, or failing that, upload the footage to my FB page post processing.
Most of the cameras that I've been looking at output as either .MOV (H.264) or .AVI files.
Are these going to be compatible with iMovie, or am I going to have to mess around with converting the files to something else, before I can edit in iMovie?
The main cams currently on my radar are Toshiba Camileo H30 and the JVC Everio range.
Any help/advice would be appreciated greatly.
