IMovie Playback and import issues

Advertisement

OK. Been having issues with iMovie here lately. First it was the playback, very choppy and the video would freeze up (audio seemed unaffected) made it real hard to edit previous projects. This started after a QT update. I hit the boards and tried everything suggested by you good people.... still having issues. Now , just today I tried to import some footage to a new project and it imports 3 to 4 seconds of choppy video then simply stops importing all together. Could this really be a QT bug that Apple needs to fix?... because nothing I do seems to rectify the problems. Using iMovie HD, and a Panasonic miniDV cam (which I have been using to import for years now).

Apple have not acknowledged a problem with Quicktime 7.0.2 and OS 10.3 but they have provided a download to go back to 6.5.2.
