AVI to DV – How to Covert .AVI to .DV for Editing on iMovie/FCP

AVI, the most commonly used video format, is not fully compatible with some video editing tools such as the iMovie, Final Cut Pro (FCP), and Final Cut Express (FCE) perhaps because AVI is Microsoft's response to Apple's QuickTime technology. Sometimes we may get some wonderful AVI video files, shot by ourselves, or shared by friends, and we may prefer to make it a fancier or more meaningful one by editing them with iMovie or FCP, but find it impossible because of the reason mentioned above. What can we do in this case?

Well, as to my personal experience, I may safely draw a conclusion that the best solution to this problem is to change the video format from AVI to DV, and that to convert AVI to DV with no quality loss at ultrafast speed for editing on iMovie or Final Cut Pro, you’d better look for a solid and intuitive Video Converter for Mac (Video Converter for Windows).
