This is probably pretty simple, but I have never tried to edit a video clip before. I have a clip that is about 5 minutes long, 640x480, and 553 MB. I want to resize it so the file size is smaller, maybe about 300 MB. How would I go about doing this in the iMovie HD software? is this possible, or will I need Quicktime Pro? Thanks!

    Hi lasnap - go File>Share, select Quicktime, then select Compress Movie for Expert Settings, then choose Movie to MPEG4. That should do it.
