How to import a Photo Booth Movie clip into iMovie

Here's a thing that should be ridiculously simple and obvious but isn't when dealing with video on the Mac.

You take a short video clip with Photo Booth, then you fire up iMovie and try to drag your movie clip into iMovie. It doesn't work.

Here is how to do it:

1. In Photo Booth, click on the movie clip you need. Go to File Menu and click on Export
2. Then go to iMovie, go to File Menu and click on Import. Select the clip you had just saved.

Recap: You need to "Export" your Photo Booth video clips before you can use them in iMovie
