    Hi all,

    I inadvertently posted this topic into the TV, Movies, etc, forum, and got no help, so I'm reposting it here.

    I had a video project I was working on which is finished, but unfortunately I wasn't able to finish in a way that would have been most convenient.

    Basically, I put together a video on my iMac in iMovie. I had originally wanted to display it via HDMI out or Component out (via adapters) to an HDTV for display. The intention was for the video to constantly play over the course of an evening for people to view at their leisure.

    My original intent was to copy the video onto my Camera Roll on my iPad, and just run a slideshow since it would essentially loop infinitely. But after the video project was completely, I found NO way whatsoever to sync the video to the camera roll on my iPad. Syncing it as a video through iTunes was not an option either since it wouldn't be able to loop.

    I ended up converting it to AVI in Premiere Pro and then copied it over to my Windows 7 based laptop and completed the project to the satisfaction and praise of all, however I REALLY would have liked to have just needed to bring my iPad, instead of my laptop and additional weight.

    So has anyone else run into this problem before and found a solution? Seems like this would be something a lot more people would be interested in doing. I just hate how you have to Sync everything to get photos and videos off an iPad or iPhone to a Mac, but it's next to impossible to put media back on it.

    there are some photo transfer apps you can use to do the trick. i use "Wireless Photo Transfer" [or is it "wireless photo sync"?], but really they all do the same thing.... as long as you pick one with good reviews, you're good. the app allows me to send videos and photos to/from my iPad/iPod Touch/iPhone/Macbook to each other using the iOS app, and a desktop app for the Mac. and it saves in the camera roll.

    hopefully that helps, let me know how it goes.

    Thanks Rock. I'll look into it later today when I get back home and will report back.
