Currently Being ModeratedOct 3, 2009 11:10 PM (in response to iggipop)I am in the same vote, ever since i installed Snow Leopard my IMOVIE crashes all the time, normally within minutes from start up of the application.
I have no clue what to do next.

*Not knowing the origin to Your problem - General approach when in trouble is as follows.*
• Free space on internal (start-up) hard disk if it is less than 10Gb should rather have 25Gb
• Hard disk is untidy. Repair Permissions, Repair Hard disk (Apple Disc Util tool)
• Garageband-fix. Start it, Play a note and Close it. Re-try (Corrects an audio problem that hinders iMovie)
• Delete iMovie pref file - or rather start a new user/account - log into this and re-try
iMovie pref file resides.
Mac Hard Disk (start-up HD)/Users/"Your account"/Library/Preferences and is named. com.apple.iMovie.plist
While iMovie is NOT RUNNING - move this file out to desk-top.
Now restart iMovie.
• Third party plug-ins that doesn't work OK (not relevant for iMovie’08 or 09)
iMovie updated ?
QuickTime updated ?
Mac OS version ?
• Program miss-match. iMovie 5.0.2, up to Mac OS X.4.11 AND QuickTime 7.4.1 - is OK
• Program miss-match. iMovie 6.0.3 or 6.0.4, Mac OS X.4.11 AND QuickTime 7.4.1 - is OK (might work under Leopard)
• Program miss-match. iMovie’08 v. 7.0.1, Mac OS X.4.11 AND QuickTime 7.4.1 - is OK (might work under Leopard)
• Screen must be set to Million-colors
From LKN 1935. (in this case = iMovie HD (5), I tried it all, but nothing worked.
Your answer (above) has been helpfull insofar as all the different trials led to the conclusion that
there was something wrong with my iMovie software. I therefore threw everything away and reinstalled
iMovie from the HD. After that the exportation of DV videos (there has not been any problem with HDV videos)
to my Sony camcorders worked properly as it did before.

Before install snow leo everything worked perfectly!!!! now imovie doesn't recognizes the keys inserted in the themes and transitions: for example it reproduces the title screen of the comic theme with black instead of video ...MacBook Pro 17, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Go back to Leopard. Back up your system to an external disk. Do a clean install of SL. Restore apps from backup.
Upgrading an operating system is not a casual exercise. I don't care how much time and effort Apple put in to making it work, there is always risk. Backup; clean install; restore apps and docs one by one. That's the ruleMBP 17" 4Gb; iMac 24", 3Gb; Powerbook G4 17", 1GHz, 1Gb;iPhone iPod 80GB, Mac OS X (10.6.1)

I have the same issue. Titles not rendering ... they are just appearing against a black screen no matter if they are supposed to be against video or a colored background. All worked fine before Snow Leopard. Two trips to Apple store genius bar and I'm no better off.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
