Would you mind being a little more specific?

I'm not sure what you mean exactly.

Indeed, a bit more detail would be helpful. What codec is the .mov file in? What process are you using, exactly, to import the video, and what exactly happens? It loads but nothing comes up: could you explain what you mean a bit further, please?

Im so sorry u guys. I was a bit hasty razz. So i tried the methods that i known of to import my video. The first one was using New project. It says u could select a movie file. It just gave me error like sound when i clicked open. So i tried next method, when u go to media and then select your file. That did not work either. So i was wondering if u could give me a tip or two for codecs and stuff. Hope this explains more unsure

It explains a bit more, yes.

What codec is your .mov file in? Does using a file in a different codec make a difference? Do you have the latest version of Quicktime installed? You say selecting Import Media didn't work, what exactly happened when you tried?

The codec info for the clip is the most likely suspect though, and is the most pertinent bit of info to track down. My guess is that the footage is in some form of mpeg or h.264 codec, none of which are designed or intended for editing, and it needs to be converted to a decent intermediate codec.
