    Must be a busted search feature on your machine there because I just typed "slow motion" in the search window and the first result goes to Karsten's web page!

    Not only that, but Karsten posted a link to his page. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them click on a link.

    I, too, started searching for video effects in iMovie 8 to add slow motion. There is no way to do this in iM8. However, after reading other posts in this discussion I decided to go back to iM6. That's when the light bulb turned on...

    I exported the video from my iM8 project, imported the same clip into iM6, added the slow motion then exported in DV quality to import in iM8. It worked!! Yes, I know it's a long way around but it got the job done.

    I should mention that it is not obvious how to go about exporting an original DV video from iM8 so here are the steps I followed:

    1) Select the video clips
    2) Select Share->Export Using Quicktime
    3) Click on "Options..."
    4) Select Video Settings
    5) Select Compression Type ->DV/DVCPRO NTSC (or PAL)
    6) Set Compressor Quality to High
    7) Click OK
    8) Name and save your video clip then modify it in iM6

    After you modify it in iM6 drag into the Event Library over the project you wish to add it to.

    Good luck.
