• 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 trouble. I can't click and drag anything!

I just uploaded a 10 minute clip from my video camera and it plays just fine. But I can't drag it from the clip section into the timeline. Whenever I try to click or drag it, it just goes transparent. The same happens to music. Can anyone help me with this because I need to have this thing edited very soon and I am completely stuck if I don't find out how to fix it. Thanks.
