    Hi.

    I have iMovie 08 on my Mac, and it is the most confusing piece of software I have come across in sometime now.

    I am wondering if there is any way possible in downloading iMovie 06 for free? I have tried for an hour and still no luck in downloading, all I can download is updates. :( so if anyone knows a download link to iMovie 06 (or something simular, I would be so great full. Thank you).

    Also, I have a Sony cam corder what records in .wmv format, iMovie doesn't like this, anyway I can download some 'updates' so that I can edit and render videos in iMovie instead of booting up Windows.

    Thanks!

    I have had the same problem with iMovie 08' and searched everywhere on the web for an iMovie HD or 06' version and all I have found are torrents, which I wouldn't touch with a barge pole. I don't think you can get a legit download of an old version of any Apple products.

    Yes, those are all updates...
    You could probably use the paid version of Flip4Mac to convert to a usable format. iMovie prefers .mp4, .dv, or .mov

    Nevermind...iMovie 08 and 09 not supported with the $49 software...
