    Unhappy iMovie09 and iDVD
    Can someone please help. I seem to have hit a brick wall.
    Both iMovie09 and iDVD have started hanging (the dreaded spinning ball), iDVd when I open it and iMovie when I try to look at pictures to import from iPhoto. Only Force Quit will close either program.
    I moved both programs to the Trash and reinstalled them to no effect.
    I reinstalled Leopard, also with no effect.
    In each case I also then made sure I searched for the latest updates.
    Anyone have any idea what the problem and possible solution might be?
    Many thanks,
    Bob

    Is it because you have already imported too many pictures and video into imovie?

    I remember imovie taking a great deal of time to load when I would work on a particular project (home videos). I since found out that it was best to trim down each project seperately before importing into one big project. This seemed to work for me.

    Hi guys,
    I sorted the problem. When you import pics from a digital camera, it also imports any movie clips that may be on your camera and puts them in iPhoto. This wasn't a problem with previous versions of iMovie & iDVD but with the latest version the whole thing falls over if anything other than pics are in the iPhoto file. I moved the clips from the folder & everything was fine.

    iMovie 08 also imported movie clips from your camera. I haven't seen this issue with either iM08 or iM09.

    I also don't understand how this would affect iDVD. I don't expect the two applications to be related when it comes to the iPhoto library.

    I hope what ever you did sticks.
