I just finished putting some special effects into my movie yesterday, and then I tried to render it. It rendered fine, but when I tried importing it to iMovie, it wouldn't let me. Any suggestions?

When you say "it wouldn't let me", what actually happened?

The clip name was grayed out, so when I clicked on it nothing happened.

Did you render to .mov format? What codec did you select? You'll need to make sure to render to a format that iMovie will accept.
