    How to reinstall Imovie HD
    Hey guys
    I have Imovie 08 but I actually like Imovie HD for little picture story stuff cause I like the themes associated with it better than 08. Anyway, my disc that I got with my mac is going to have 08 on it and not HD. I have HD in my list of applications (if I remember I drug it from my old HD when I got the new mac), but I don't have the themes. I went to HD, Library, App Support, and there is no Imovie folder. So I assume the entire program did not make it to my hardrive in the drag over... so i went to apple's site and tried to download it again but it says it can't download because a "newer version" exists. So I drug that Imovie HD icon into the trash and still the same thing. I hate to drag Imovie 08 in the trash cause I don't think that is causing the issue since the app has a different name.
    thanks again for any help

    just got off the phone w/ apple and they said that the download link on the apple site is just an update and not the full program. he suggested going to ebay to buy ilife 06... not sure that its that good of a program to mess with having to buy an out of date ilife disc; any other suggestions guys?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Upgrade to iMovie '11. It's fabulous.

    Specs:
    PPC Mini, 10.4.11. Intel Mini, 10.6.8. MacBook Pro, 10.10.5. iPhone 3GS.
    Also recommend iMovie11. It brings back just about all of the features in iMovieHD that disappeared with iMovie8.

    Nope. It's iMovie 08 with tons of improvements. Watch the tutorials on Apple's iLife site.
