Importing Camcorder Footage Once you've turned off the automatic clip-creation feature, iMovie logs clips only when you click Import (or press Space) once at the beginning of the clip, and again at the end of the clip. Tip: Tapping the Space bar is the same as clicking the Import button. In fact, if you tap Space when the camcorder is stopped, it begins to play and iMovie begins to capture the footage. Figure 4-7: The iMoviePreferences dialog box gives you control over the automatic clip-logging feature. You can turn off this feature entirely by turning off the "Start new clip at each scene break" option.
