    As you know, iMovie (11) supports most commonly-used video codecs,
    including DV, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, AVCHD and AIC. However, when you
    import WMV to iMovie for editing, you may find iMovie can’t support the
    format, for WMV is a Windows based foramt. So, what if we want to use WMV files in iMovie? Is there a quick fix to overcome the incompatible issue?

    Well, to transfer WMV movies into iMovie for editing, the best
    workaround is to convert WMV to a more editing-friendly format, such an
    iMovie's Apple InterMediate Codec. To get the work done, Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac
