    Moving IMOVIE 08 to IMOVie 06
    hey guys
    i am using 08 for the first time and i am not too happy with it. i don't want to lose what i have done thus far though. is there a way i can take what i have in 08 and move it over to 06? i am downloading 06 from apple.com right now, but I am not sure how to move between the programs? furthermore, will my effects and what not that I have applied thus far in 08 work when it is moved to 06???

    You need to export that movie. See my 'iMovie Export Guide'. In your case I think you likely want to export it as QuickTime movie using the Apple Intermediate Codec and I think PCM audio.

    Why are you not happy with iMovie 08? Like anything new it takes time to learn and feel comfortable with.

    If your video came from a camera and is in DV format, than you can natively use that in iMHD (iMovie 06).

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    Is anyone happy with imovie08? All ive ever heard/read about it is complaints and Apple making imovieHD6 available as a free download is pretty close to admitting they botched up on imovie08

    You've heard? So what. Rather than listen to others, try it for your self and make your own decisions, and arguments for iM08's pros and cons. It has both.
