    Have you tried setting the project settings to 60fps?

    To be 100% honest, I can't answer how - my guess would be in one of two places (I don't use iMovie and don't have iMovie '09 on the computer I'm on atm - I had read a thread where someone mentioned a setting so I figured I'd through it out there) -

    The two places are:

    1) Right click on your project, and select Project Properties

    2) If it's an overall method of operation, click the iMovie menu (at the top next to the apple icon) and select preferences.

    Hopefully the setting is in there somewhere.

    I honestly didn't think (and still can't 100% confirm) that iMovie would work with 720p60 footage; but I had read a couple of forum entries elsewhere that it can - so either they were wrong or I'm wrong and it really can.
