    Hi, I have 2 questions:
    1. What is the best version of iMovie for my dual 2Ghz G5? Consider speed, compatibility, the look of the software, and how many features it has. Don't say iMovie 09' just because it is the newest because as a matter of fact it runs SOOO slowly on my G5.
    2. What is the best apple video editing software overall for my G5? This includes Pro apps (FCP and FCP Express) Consider the above as well.

    Thanks

    I thought they were too slow and couldn't even do proper web browsing and were outdated... ;)
    Just use your vastly superior Intel Macs... ;)

    Will you edit HD or SD? Have you even looked at FCE and FCP?

    Yes I have, IMHO they seem too complicated, I would prefer iMovie TBH.

    Yes, I do have a problem actually, you.

    A good simple, powerful video-editor would be Openshot but thats Intel(Where's my worship mat!?) only, after that I'd say iMovie 6 HD.

    Ok il consider iMovie HD 6, as a matter of fact one of my best friends *had* that on his PBG4 before it unfortunately died.

    What do you think is better, iMovie HD 6 or iMovie 08'?
    Thanks

    Well, iMovie '08 was more of a redesign and had features re-written or completely removed so I think iMovie HD 6 is better.

    I'm surprised you don't get on with iMovie '09 :confused: - it's a bit slow rendering but in terms of editing and putting everything together it's really responsive on my Dual Core 2.3 G5, I'd prefer that over iMovie HD 6 any day.

    After Effects 7.0 runs well too - again, slow on the rendering but the interface and editing experience is nice and snappy.

    I've edited 20 minute + 720p videos on both iMovie '09 and After Effects and it's not been bad at all (rendering aside). SD stuff (640x480) really flies.
