I've got a question about Snow Leopard. Does anyone more tech savy than me know if installing Snow Leopard will brick iMovie HD ('06). I know it's old, but I've got a ton of themes and stuff for it and it just cranks out good video.

If you have a snow leopard build and also iMovie HD any help would be really appreciated.

    Hi JVBarimore;

    If someone has SL now, they are under a non-disclosure statement and would be violating that. Doing so on the Apple Discussion Forum would probably be the worst place ever to do that. So I don't see your question getting answer until the general release of SL.

    There's no reason to think that it would.

    I can think of several.

    I mean Apple has not given any indication that it won't work and there is no technical reason that I can think of that it wouldn't.

    It will work just fine.
    You may have issues with any third party "add-ons", however.

    Hope you are right, most iLife 09 users I know use iMovie 06 with iDVD 09.

    OK. Snow is officially falling! Can someone revisit this question and let us know if good old iMovie HD works under 10.6 (particularly with importing DV from tape based vidcams over Firewire).

    +Germans are so efficient!+ sometimes..

    I just wanted to make clear, WHAT I could test within 30min..
    I'm still a blockhead , using iMovie for video from real camcorders only .. (yepp, that is very German)

    we will soon see the first posts complaining, using exotic media containers, 'filming rubber gums' and usage of not-so-public-alpha-builts-of-10.6. on G4s ..

    Hi

    I tried to install iMovie HD 6.x on Snow Leopard and it failed. iMovie HD 6.x wants iLife '08 installed first which i do not have!

    thanks'

    Only if you are installing iM 6.0.4

    You can always install from the iLife 06 Disk.

    Will installing Snow Leopard remove an already installed (and working) iMovie 6?

    It didn't here.. I installed SL on a cloned external drive where I had iMovie HD in my Dock.. When I brought up SL for the first time, it was still there and functional.
