There's also Handbrake for Mac (Free & Open Source) that handles a number of file conversions.

Macs really only work smoothly with material in the MOV container ins a small number of formats, but Perian can probably help you stretch this a bit further. You could also look at MPEGstreamclip for converting your videos to easier to work with formats.

We have been encountering numerous problems with the import files using Macs. Even  though the files are .avi, they don’t playback in Premiere on the MAC (of course they work perfectly fine on my Windows PC). Anyway, upon further reading of the official UoC it mentions in the range statement that MovieMaker may be used.
