On Apple's site reviews warn others to NOT upgrade from 06 ot 08. I have iLife 06 and really like it. I use iMovie/iDVD quite a bit. What are the issues with 8? Do you still have the ability to adjust volume curves, fade out/in, add titles, etc? I don't bother with many effects otherwise. Secondarily, is the quality of DVD encoding much better compared to 06? I've been disappointed with the DVD MPEG quality of 6 -- the original source looks much better! I try to keep my videos under an hour, but its often not possible.
