    Hello people,

    I've been using iMovie 09 for some time now to make small youtube videos. I found the new iMovie to be a bit annoying to work with, but now I'm even disappointed. I can't seem to find any decent video effects. There are some that add overlays (like the ones in Photobooth) but nothing as much as iMovie HD.

    Are there some decent freeware plugins out there? I looked around with aid of Google and found nothing but commercial :(
    Or perhaps there is a way to import the iMovie HD effects into iMovie 09?

    I like the way iMovie 09 manages my clips, so I rather stay in there than in iMovie HD. Right now I edit partially in both for my more demanding clips (wanted to make a small video with distorted static over the screen).

    Many thanks in advance :)

    I think that you might be able to downgrade to iMovie HD if you want the effects. Look up iMovie HD download and see if you can get a link. Apple used to have it posted, but I think they took down the official one a couple of years ago.
