I am currently importing a 100MB MP4 movie into iMovie with my 2.16 Core Duo 2 iMac (2 Gig RAM) and it's taking 17 minutes. Is that normal? That seems incredibly slow. Any ideas why this take so long? In general, I have found video operations painfully slow with this computer. It took up to two hours to compress a 1 GB video to 200 MB Quicktime file with iMovie. That can't be right, can it?
