.. wow, that is hillarious funny!! Cabaraoke
.. back to business:
no, iM is exclusively for MacOs only ..
but.. in theory, the video files iM generates should be readable by PC apps..
do a short test:
Export with Quicktime .. a few secs short project (on a usb stick?) ... one as 'dv', another with 'h264' as export settings..
both files will be a .mov (give different names..) so, you have to install Quicktime for Windows on the PC .. dv should be no problem, h264 could be a problem for a PC.. test it.
h264 would be smart, because it is very efficient.. a 2GB usb-stick (=small) could fit a lot of video.. esp. when you size on export to your final resolution..
actual size, 4GB, 50€
another option would be an iPodNano as data-storage device.. (=using as HDD) ... the iPod does mount on both systems as harddrive.. a lil' bigger, but still within your parameters, I guess..
actually, iM08 doesn't support 3rd party codecs as divx or wmv/flip4mac.. so, this is no option..
+Export with Quicktime .. one as 'dv', ... dv should be no problem,+
Actually, Windows applications in general work with DV-AVI files (.avi extension), and cannot read .dv files at all. Neither Windows Movie Maker nor Adobe Premiere Elements for example can read .dv files. So to get a DV movie from a Mac to Windows, export it on your Mac as "Movie to AVI", then select the DV compression type (like DV/DVPRO - NTSC) under Options.
