I didn't get any responses when I posted this in the "Mac Applications" forum, so I figure I'll post it here in the video experts forum.......here goes: I just migrated from Tiger to Snow Lep and it seems Snow Lep adversely impacts my old iMovie HD 06 projects, and it won't even allow me to create new projects the way I used to using iMovie HD....the timing gets all messed up. The issue with iMovie HD in Snow Lep seems to be around the timing of stills and photos. Snow Lep isn't recognizing the time limits I set on the stills and the voice over narration and plug-in effects I've added aren't working the way they should...like they did in the Tiger world. Can anyone with iMovie 09 experience tell me if the new version can handle what I need?? What I want iMovie to do is be able to handle my sports highlight clips, my voice over of training comments, title slides and stills between video clips, and also allow me to use a video effect like a circle or arrow to identify the players to focus on. Are effects like circles and arrows already built in, or available as a 3rd party plug-in add-on?? I create training videos for game officials, and if I could get iMovie 09 to do what I need....bye bye iMovie HD. Thanks in advance for your comments. I have iLife 09 as part of the 'box set' I purchased, but haven't installed it yet.
