• 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 upgrade/Help/Education

I am new to the Mac World, (thankfully) and I need some help. I have been working on my wifes old G3 Mac to use it for Video editing and she had an old copy of Imovie (v.3) on it. I have been trying to load a rather large video file in it to edit and it keeps rejecting it as I am afraid it is to large. I am familiar with Imovie 08 and am trying to get as close to that as possible, but I am not sure exaclty how close I can get and if I can get imovie without Ilife. I tried to load a copy of Ilife 08 and it immediately told me I was crazy. Any ideas or help would be appeciated.
