OK, so something is wrong with my importing process and I don't know what. When I am starting a new project, I use my camera to bring in .mov video. I then click the select clip button in the CompositeLab menu, and It doesn't work. I also use .AVI files too. .m4v as well. Please help, I don't know how to bring in clips, because when I do anything else, the movie can't render. Is there a different type of movie that you can bring in?

What software are you using to capture the video from your camera to the computer? What codec are the .mov files in?
.m4v files will not import. You have to use .mov or .avi formats. Straight off the camera the files are .mov correct? What are you using to convert them to .avi? What codec are the .avi files in?

OK, I was thinking .m4v and .mov were the same, thanks for clarifying
And also,I was wondering what codec pictures have to be to be imported.

Generally the compression formats used on images aren't referred to as codecs, which is more of a video term. However, to answer your question, you can use images in the following formats:
BMP, JPEG, PICT, PNG, SGI, TARGA, TIFF
That list is posted on the Tech Specs page for each product, in case you misplace it and want to find it again in the future.

What happens when you import the files? Does it give you an error, or does it just do nothing.
