I'm using iMovie HD on a MacBook I believe to be from 2006, running OS (extended journaled ?) Clearly, it's not mine.

I edited together a 14 minute video that was shot with 3 different cameras. One of the cameras is a Gopro sport cam. Anything from the Gopro becomes ridiculously huge once it is inside iMovie ( a 4 sec. clip is 3 gig). The other cameras are fine.

So now I have a 14 min. movie that claims to be 110 gig.

I also don't have a DVD burner on this machine. Most of the methods for getting this movie burned require copying the file, which requires a huge amount of storage.

Is there any way to convince iMovie HD this file is the size it actually is?

What do you mean by..."Clearly, it's not mine"...?

From what I remember about iMovie, you can export your final project to QuickTime. The QT file will use only the post-editing video. That file should be the "proper" size.
