• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

iMovie HD - tutorials?

Just discovered that I can import vids from my phone into iMovie (GET IN!). I can't seem to make head nor tail of the program, however.

Are there any decent tutorials online or in cheap book format that'll help me?

Also; how much of a part does RAM play in the running of the program? I've got a 1.5ghz G4 powerbook (god, how old does that sound now?!) with 512mb RAM. Would upgrading to a 1.2gig of ram help the cause?
