Hi, I've been working with iMovie HD for awhile now and each time I import a video file (usually mpg) it takes an excruciatingly long time (e.g., 55 min to import a 45min mpg). Also, the .iMovieProject files are enormous (all I did to that 45min mpg was clip a 3-min scene and the file turned out to be 10 GB). This isn't the first time, though, because I've saved files in the past such as a 3 min montage that I've been editing that takes up 70 GB. I did some research and it looks like the reason may be that iMovie is converting everything into DV, which supposedly takes up a lot of space...? (I'm new to this stuff, I don't really know much about different types of formats.) http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/363944 Anyway, I've been considering getting FCE, so I'm wondering if the same thing would happen in FCE...? Thanks.
