    Just got a Macbook Pro today and was pleased to see that iMovie has a video stabilisation feature.
    However every time I import one of my Vision videos to iMovie, the stabilisation tab is greyed out. I can't even crop the videos.
    Does anybody have any ideas ?

    thanks

    An annoying problem for alot of people! This is what i found for u:

    1. Right click on the clip, and select Reveal in Finder
    2. Ignore the clip, but open the folder iMovie Stabilization
    3. Delete the contents
    4. Restart iMovie (unfortunately, this is necessary)
    5. Right click the clip again and choose Analyze video -> Stabilization

    If you have already used the clip in your film, you will need to unapply stabilization, then reapply it

    Thanks very much, why do they make it so difficult !

    Firstly I'll have to find out to right click on a Mac. Thought it would be more user friendly than Windows, but it's a whole different world !
