I've searched here and other places but can't seem to find an answer specifically to my question. I'm running a 2.66 ghz imac w/4gb ram. Whenever I rip DVD's (made from home movies) from handbrake (at about real time speed) when I import them into iMovie (I can't access it now but i just got the system in may so I think version 8, i'll edit tommorrow) it takes about 6 hours per hour of video to import. This can't be right. What am I doing wrong. On another note I can import 30 minutes of HD video from my Sony camcorder on miniDV in about 20 minutes. Thanks in advance

QUOTE Thanks
