IMovie 8 (7.1) Crashes Importing DV from Panasonic PV-GS80

Advertisement

iMovie 8 (7.1) crashes hard every time after importing about 30sec. of DV from Panasonic PV-GS80 via FireWire. Upon restarting iMovie, the clip is generally OK. The same H/W works every time using iMovie 6.0.4, and this video can be imported to iMovie 8 from iMovie 6 correctly. System is new, Disc Utility reports OK. Any suggestions besides dropping iMovie 8?

FOUND FIX
I found this fix in another thread post. iMovie 7 appears to be bugged, but you can import movies if you download iMovie6 HD. It's apparently free from apple for iLife 08 users.
Here's the link so you can download it.

Hours spent trying all sorts and iMovie HD ... just seems to work. Someone suggested that I use an external HD to improve performance. Just make sure you don't use Fat32 because it bombs when the file size gets to 2GB lol. It's a limitation of the Fat32 format. Since you can't access NTFS directly, you're a bit stuffed if you want to use the external HD with you Mac and PC. Either format it for your mac or your pc.
