HDV captured through FCP... and now into iMovie?

Hello,

we had a customer that asked if we could give him the HDV-rushes on a HDD because he wanted to edit it himself with iMovie.

We captured it as HDV with Final Cut Pro and gave him a HDD with the HDV Quicktime-files on it. But he says he only sees a black screen although he can hear audio.

So...

- Can he work with HDV? Does he need a certain iMovie version of this?
- Does installing Quicktime Pro for him do the job?
- Or will we have to transcode everything to another format that iMovie reads?
(and which codec would that be? Apple Intermediate Codec?)

Thanks,

Won't work unless FCP is installed. You'll have to transcode the files into AIC for it to work in iMovie.

Sorry to bring up this thread again.

Will Final Cut Express work with these HDV-files and recognize them?
