I've read that the new imovie software supports more video formats. I've tried capturing video from a Digital 8 source in the old version, but it couldn't do it. Does anyone know if the new imovie supports the Digital 8 media?

Thanks!

unless the digital 8 has a usb/firewire connection I doubt it.

Thanks for the reply.

I'd have to go back & double-check, but I'm pretty sure it was a firewire plug. So the hook-ups are all fine. I just want to know if the software is compatible before I rush out to upgrade, because the current version of imovie (I think it's '06) won't capture my video.

I have a mini dvd cam and imovie 06 doesnt recognize it...so I have to go through media fork then import it. Take your cam with you and use it at the apple store to be sure.
