Import Divx files to iMovie to edit Divx(.avi, .divx, .mkv) with iMovie 11 on Mac by converting Divx video to iMovie compatible video DV, MOV(Video Converter for
Lion, Mavericks included).
Divx Media Format, DMF, is a media container format used for the MPEG-4 Part 2 codec. Divx with a .divx extension, has features: Multiple subtitles, multiple audio tracks, multiple video streams like on DVD-Video movies, etc. Divx has defined profiles which are subsets of MPEG-4/AVI and H.264/Matroska standards. So Divx has three kinds of file extensions: .avi, .divx and .mkv for different purposes. For example: Divx with the .avi and .divx, Max resolution of 32X240X30 is used on Mobile.
The Divx format is supported by many software video playback tools, however iMovie doesn't recognize the Divx files because divx is not a format that is compatible with iMovie.
