I just got a Panasonic SDR-H40P for Xmas yesterday and tried to import video file into iMove 7.1.4. At first I had a problem thinking it was the exe. file that it created. Now that I think about it, they were the files that format the drive. Then after shooting some additional footage I saw the video files recognized by iMovie then it would crash. After reading a post about "Perian" users I uninstalled it from my Macbook Pro and kept trying to import. That seemed to do the trick. So the moral of the story is; YES, it does work nice with iMovie 7.1.4. but don't have "Perian" app loaded. By the way I was an Final Cut Pro user scince the first version and never really gave iMovie a chance. I love this app for home movie stuff. If I do another pro project I will go back to FCP but for now I love the Panasonic/iMove combo.
Have fun.
