    HD Video importing question!!
    Hello all,

    I just returned from a month long vacation, in which I did a lot of filming with my new Canon HV30 HD Camera. Long story short, my MBP does not have quite enough space left on it to contain all of the raw film. I have an external hard drive and I was wondering if it was possible to completely bypass my MBP hard drive and have the footage go straight to a specefied location on my external and STILL be able to work with it in iMovie '08.

    Any help or suggestions would be great.

    Absolutely! Open iMovie, plug in your cam, the blue import screen will pop up. Hit import and the first line on the box you can select your location.

    The import screen will look like this...




    Then you will see all your hard in the lower left box in the main window. Here's what mine looks like.
