    What version of iMovie are you using? Are you saving to the internal disk or an external one? Does the app quit silently or give you an error message? Do you have any third party QuickTime plugins installed? Sorry for all the questions, but really need a bit more information on what your set up is.

    2.2 mbp with 2gb ram - nothing else running
    program quits and disappears without error message
    i'm using the internal disk 7200 rpm with 60gb free
    nothing third party is installed

    imovie 08 - seriously pissing me off.
    it's so slow in general and choppy as well

    Same here

    Exactly same problem here on brand new MBP 2.2GHz and Canon MXV-450 with iMovie 08 (7.1 update). The Canon works beautifully on white MacBook and iMovie 06.

    Seems like many users experience this (according to some googling).

    It sure is annoying and hugely embarrassing to Apple.
