    I was wondering, since I missed the boat on the official site, if there was any other place to get imovie hd 6?

    I hate that this is my first post, but I'm sorta desperate here. And I don't want to pirate anything.

    Thanks,

    EJ

    There is a way to install iMovie6HD manually. I don't have it to hand at the moment, but will try and find it.

    I did it on my my Mac as I much prefer it to iMovie8/9.

    The following worked for me:

    Double click on the iMovieHD6.dmg file to mount it, then drag iMovieHD6.pkg to the desktop to make a copy.

    • Control-click on the package and choose 'show package contents'
    • Drag Archive.pax.gz to the desktop, then open it. You will get a folder called 'Archive'. Inside are two further folders.
    • From the folder named Applications, drag iMovieHD to your own Applications folder.
    • From the folder named Library,
    • Copy all 5 themes .bundles to the following path: Library>Application Support>iMovie>Themes folder
    • Copy the iMovie Getting Started file to: Library>Documentation>Applications>iMovie folder
    • Copy iMovie.mdimporter to: Library>Spotlight folder

    You might find it will work without any more fiddling. Or you might not.
