Gordon's Tech: FLIP Video Ultra camcorder: iMovie HD works, iMovie '08 doesn'tAs you can probably guess my theory of 3/31 seems to be correct.
Update 3/30/2008: I found an AppleScript that should do what I need. It tells QuickTime Player to open multiple AVI files, process them to DV stream, then delete the originals. Unfortunately, it's giving me cryptic error messages.
Update 3/31/2008: I'm beginning to think Apple quietly disabled AppleScript driven conversion in QT Player. Nobody seems to know anything about it.
When I ran those scripts with QuickTime Player, they simply didn't work. No error messages, but the AppleScript APIs didn't seem to do anything.
I paid for QuickTime Player Pro and now the original scripts work.
This seems kind of obnoxious. At the very least QuickTime Player should have produced an error message like "AppleScript functionality requires QuickTime Player Pro". Apple wasted a fair bit of my time.
