    Hi Forum,

    I am on an intel 20" imac with a 250GB HD using iLife 09. I am back from a vacation with the family and realize that I can't import any video to my imac because the HD has no more space. To get some space back I am currently doing the following:

    1. Going through old video footage and trashing all video I never used in a project.

    My questions:

    1. If I attach an external HD can I can I download raw footage on this and then edit with imovie through the external?

    2. Is there anything anyone else suggests?

    I MRoogled this and found some ways to save space but couldn't find much on the above two questions that weren't over my experience level as I just want to do home movies for memories.

    thanks,
