I'm befuddled and need some help. I have both HD6 and iMovie 09 on my Mac. I have also upgraded to SL. I thought I might switch to iMovie 09 but it just didn't work out. Returned to HD6 to complete a project. I work mainly with stills, working them into video montages with music. I noticed the HD6 was acting a bit odd and figured it was SL. Came to the Forum and learned it was a problem others were having and was probably related to QuicktimeX. I deleted QTX thinking that might solve the problem, ran a permissions check, and restarted the computer. HD6 will not load. Tried to restore things using Time Machine but I keep striking out. Out of curiosity I tried iMovie09. It will not load. Nor will Photo-to-Movie. Went back to the SL install discs and reloaded QTX and used the custom install to reload the QT7. Still no luck.

I'm afraid to move at this point. Obviously I have messed up something but I don't want to compound the problem further. I'm considering a complete re-install of SL. Does anyone have advice or comments?

    Not sure of what You want to do.

    Start a project in iMovie HD 6 then cont. in iMovie'09 ?

    If so - NOT Possibly !

    iMovie'08 & 09 are NO upgrade from previous version BUT a totally new application.

    That's why a project can't migrate. Neither can an iMovie HD 6 project migrate to
    FinalCut in a still editable form.
    Only Export of raw material can be done. = Start all over.

    (This goes from iM'08 & 09 too - not compatible formats to FinalCut (any version))
