If I download iMovie HD 6 from here: http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/imovieHD6.html

Do I lose my current iMovie version, or can I just have 2 iMovie's?

Hi Kellie,

From what was told to me, you can run both of them but your other version has to be iMovie 8 which is a part of iLife 8.

I also understand that you can run them independently, but again, you need to have Leopard with iLife 08 bundled (not the off-the-shelf purchased software) in order to download and run iMovie HD/6. I'm looking at doing that myself; I don't mind iMovie 08, but I have surmised, from numerous posts, that editing commercials and adding fade in's/fade out's to TV shows that I import with eyeTV is FAR easier with iMovie HD.

Cheers!

Did you read that on the Apple site somewhere. As far as I can recall, you simply need iLife 08 installed to install the older iMovie HD.

It should not delete the newer version, but instead create a "iMovie HD.app" file name. The iMovie 08 app is simply named iMovie.app. Also note that the version you should be downloading of iMovie HD is 6.0.4.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
