    I loved the combo of iMovie hd 6.0.4 and the easy dovetailing of movies with iDVD.
    It was not a brain-dead easy program, so people gravitated away.
    I am a dinosaur, I know it. But this dinosaur needs to download iMovie hd 6 and upgrades.
    My original software has become damaged.
    Help!

    Hi Dave,
    The downloaded file will not install unless I have iLife 08. I have to do a bit of study to see if Mavericks can tolerate iLife 08 before I get it.
    I am beginning to think I need a DVD authoring pack that will take movie files of different kinds, and yet let me personalize everything including themes, etc.
    I'll let you know what I find.
    Thanks for trying to help me.
    Hugh

    Whoops,
    a couple of days of tinkering with torrents whatever that is, has loaded me up with gremlins. First time ever, with my macbook pro. Home page and new tabs adding themselves to everything. If I buy iLife 08 and install it, everything should be working vis a vis my movie jackpot. Why not buy? Developers deserve their piece of the pie.
    I'll report when it is all working like it should.
    Thanks Dave.

    Having thought about it, I realize why that is so. iLife 08 included the new iMovie08. This was a radical change from iMovie6HD, inasmuch that all you could really do with it was to import video from your camcorder and then upload it straight to Youtube, or similar. It's editing capabilities were virtually nil.

    As a stop gap, Apple allowed those with iLife 08 to download a replacement iMovie6HD. That's the copy that I linked to, which is why it won't install without iLife08.

    Me again,
    I have become prisoner of "trovi" and I no longer control what is on my screen. It seems that "free download" and "iMovie 6.0.4 without iLife" are terms that lead Mac users straight down the throat of malware.
    Temporarily S.O.L.

    I have installed iLife 8, and I am having a devil of a time finding it. "Install Successful" shows after the DVD is installed, but nowhere can I find it. Spotlight can't find it!

    Is iLife automatically ignored for a known reason?

    Still trying to get my old iMovieHD working.

    Will report on my findings in the coming days.

    Create an empty text file called "com.apple.iLife08.plist" and place it in your "Users/YOURUSERNAME/Library/Preferences/" folder before running the installer. Note that you may need to use the "Go to Folder" from the finder to get into the User's "Library" folder on later MacOS X - it's hidden.

    However, you still need a matching version of iDVD for the "iMovie to iDVD" creation mechanism to work. iDVD v7 from "iLife '09" or v7.1 from "iLife '11" Retail DVD should work.

    H,
    I am curious as to where you got the Trovi? Was it part of the iMove HD 6 update for iMovie 8
    package?

    I assume you're asking @hugh.michael who said:

    Yes, I was asking Hugh.michael. I was looking for the specific source of Trov so I could avoid.

    You can download the full cracked iMovie HD 6.5.1 app see here Tutorial Video. Works all the way up to OSX 10.11

    Thank you Medcons! I am a bit gun-shy where downloads are concerned. I'll try with my iMac first, and save my MacBook Pro for later. More when I learn more.
    Still, what a wonderful piece of news on this June 1, 2016.

    iMovie HD 6.5.1 also works with macOS Sierra.

    Unfortunately version 6.0.4 didn't and nor did it work with yosemite or el capitan. I was rather annoyed when I upgraded from mavericks to yosemite only to find iMovie HD 6.0.4 no longer works. And there was no way I would want to use a more up-to-date version like version '08, '09, '11 or 10 because they were not as good as 6. And nor do I want to buy expensive software to replace imovie.

    iMovie 08 and 09 were certainly not to be recommended, but iMovie11(v9) was/is every bit as good as iMovie6HD. Haven't made my mind up about iMovie10 yet.

    Hi Medcons

    This is a fantastical step forward !
    I downloaded the file, but I am rather shy with downloading unknown pieces of software.
    I would appreciate returns of users stating the app is safe and works as well as the original Apple version.
