Imovie hd 6 for mac

Thanks in advance! Also, I have old gee three transitions that would no longer work on the download, but updated downloads are available from Slick GeeThree site and they also work on mountain lion and I recently had to replace my iMac desktop computer as the hard drive died. I had backed up everything on external hard drive thank goodness. I now have a new iMac late I am running OS I have always used and loved the iMovie 6 HD. I am afraid to use the new one as everyone says it is awful… So I just had the computer set itself up from my external hard drive using Time machine.

Here is my problem. I can load and edit videos just like before but when I close a project and then reopen it to continue to edit, the scrubber bar and play head are visible but within seconds they disappear. So I can no longer edit using my play head and scrubber bar. I tried re installing iMovie from your download but the same problem happens. Any idea what I am doing wrong? Thank you so much for your time and your help.

Peace, Susi. This happens when you open the DMG file? Is there an on-line or other manual for this version of iMovie? I would like to start a project. Kim the same happened to me! Here hugs for you lol! I hated all of the new versions now I can go back to editing. I really cannot thank you enough! I just got a new iMac because my old one died and the new iMovie 10 just…blows.

Thank you for bringing life back to imovie! Thank you so much for this. I have a first gen macbook that I upgraded from Tiger to Snow Leopard a year or two ago, losing iMovie 6 in the process. After wasting an hour trying and failing to make 9 do what I needed it to do, I checked the internet, found you site, downloaded version 6 and got it done in 20 minutes. A million thanks. Does anyone know how to tackle this problem? Bjorn, thank you very much for sharing that video. I was so bummed when I lost iMovie HD 6. They used to be the best company and now they are just like all the rest.

So sad. Cheers, Stinki1. My version got corrupted. Blessing to have ability to download another copy of this app. Oh my god! Have you got any idea how happy you have made me!!! Then I will have to install all my Gee 3 volumes. I unwittingly used iMovie HD I believe v. I just started piecing together a G4 1. Reply to this one so I get e-mail notifications if someone does.

In a word, thanks. What they did with iMovie after version 6 was simply inexplicable. I think Im dreaming! Just this past week i tried to transfer some OLD vhs footage into my iMovie 11 and had a terrible time. I started researching and found that all iMovie versions past iMovie 06 are apparently inferior. I am a complete perfectionist, and once I learned this, I knew I had to have iMovie 06 back.

ANY loss of quality is simply unacceptable to me. I will somehow pay it forward. Just a follow up… I completed putting together this old MDD 1. This is so helpful.. Do I need to follow these steps each time I want to us the old iMovie? How can I get it to stay and be more easily accessible? Anyhoo… 6 is it. Anything after becomes a confusing mess of a program. This app pre-dates when apple started signing code, I think.

I tried throwing the version 10 in the trash and emptying it but no go. This is driving me nuts. I still have version 8. Looking at all the response you got, you must have some idea now what utter hero you are by providing us iMovie HD 6!!! I have looked all over to get some audio control back to my video work when changing to iMovie 8.

Still her e and now in !

iMovie HD Available Here | Robert Harder

What were they thinking at Cupertino by leaving iMovie 6 for iMovie 8?!! There is no quicker handling in any other tool. Thanks, Robert! Obviously you are doing a great service since this thread has been going strong for 5 years, and hopefully Apple continues to turn a blind eye! Bought a refurbished MacBook Pro and really needed this as it has little to no apps on it, and yes, I feel this was the best version of iMovie for user-friendliness and functionality, especially when teaching students basic video editing.

Yesterday I upgraded to Yosemite, and as forecast iMovie HD, which I have been using since version StoneAge — the best movie editing app ever — did not work. I had not understood all that stuff about opening Terminal, but having watched the video again — whoopee!! Many thanks for a lifesaver! You, sir, rock the hardest! I somehow lost my iMovie when my hard drive crashed last year and was at a complete loss how to get it back without upgrading to Yosemite, which I refuse to do. This version is so much better anyway.

Sometimes Apple is a real carnival huckster, twirling its moustache and cackling maniacally as it watches us hapless marks try to deal with its arbitrary software decisions. Thank you so much! The reason is that I used to shoot actual film and cut and splice the film to edit movies. This is the way movies were originally made and the way iMovie HD is programed so it is a natural for me to use.

The later versions of iMovie make no sense to me so I have resisted using these versions after iMovie HD. This is all well and good except I was continually faced with system upgrades which eventually were not compatible with iMovie HD 6. For later system versions you can use an external drive, to install Snow Leopard and install iMovie HD 6. You can also down load iMovie HD 6 from this site. You will also need to install iDVD version 7. After all of these are installed on your external drive, you can then start up with your most recent operating system such as Yosemite I have MacPro with 3 external drives plus time machine because I make and store a lot of movies.

This works better and faster than using an older computer which may not have an optical drive so that you will not be able to burn DVDs. I work on the project and when it is finished, I transfer the project to either of the other external drives for storage. I use the external drive with Snow Leopard only for working and not for storing. If you install iLife 6 you will be prompted to upgrade which will upgrade to the latest versions compatible with Snow Leopard.

If you use music from iTunes, you will need to transfer music from your iTunes library to your external drive with Snow Leopard. Hope this will work for you. Thank you worked perfectly — love this version. When folks get the window that says it will not open because of the developer — just go in to Preferences — Privacy and change the preference for not allow non — Mac apps.

Then set it back after it opens or not. Hello everyone I found another alternative that I personally think is the best bc the terminal does not need to be open. Here is the procedure: 1. Finally look for these two lines:. I highly recommend using the find feature This can be done by holding the command key and while still holding it press f type: CFBundleVersion6. Thank you everyone and lastly Rolando!

I just followed those instructions and they worked for a new iMac using I am so glad you made this available, no other version has come close to this version. Technical question here…. I have iMovie 6 on an old computer I just pulled out. For this reason I was only able to make videos the size of a postage stamp back in the day. On a newer computer that died, I was able to export to the larger size with no problem, so I know the problem is with my older computer. But the older computer is all I have.

The terminal work-around has a lot of problems, so I was hoping to just use my old computer. Does anyone have any ideas? I have no idea why it gets so glitchy with the larger size file on this computer. Sorry, Terri. Not sure what to do about that. There were some tips in the comments here about getting iMovie to run without the Terminal hack, but it amounts to the same thing. If iMovies is coughing on your system, it will do that anyway.

I have an old macbook with the El Capitan, and I installed the iMovie 6 through here, but it says I need to update for an older version so I downloaded the 6. The first time I gave it a go, I worked on a trial work project and it crashed. I have a lot of plug-ins on it. I would pay for iMovie 6 HD if they made it compatible with the newer operating systems. But I also want Streamclip updated, too!

And the later iMovies are not user friendly. Timing transitions alone, are a big headache. Terri I feel your pain. I wish there was a modernized iMovie this one, the good one. Done what Rolando said and after changing the string to 6. Thank you so much for posting this. I downloaded the file, which the icon has a white circle with a line through it and when I open the icon I get this message:.

Stewart Check out this related post on this blog. There are some Yosemite and El Capitan notes there. Rolando Thanks Robert and thanks to Rolando! Running iMovie HD 6. Just ignore the bug after creating a New Project, restart the app and then open Existing Project. This is a great thread! I think video pad is OK, but, after about a month it disables some features wanting you to pay. Mac and PC. Hey, thanks for this.

I still have 3 G4 processor macs with MacOS I bought one of the last boxes of iLife 06 years ago and still have the disc and used it to load HD6 on my then new Snow Leopard Mac. Since then, I have abstained from updating my OS, for fear of losing my beloved HD6 and not being very confident that I could perform these workarounds described here. Just wanted to say a huge thanks! Now to get my slick plugins back! Thanks again for this! Huge thank you, Robert, for keeping a legacy application alive. Still using a G4 under Regards, Peter. Marlboro Man Huh. Works for me as of 9 Apr You are a gem!

Thank you for doing this. I am new to using iMovie. I have 2 and 5 but figured I should just learn on the best version. Trying to figure out how to make VERY simple youtube vids with black screen and my lyrics in sync with the song?? No luck so far. Thanks for your help and others out there like Old Version, etc. Believe it or not there was a time one could access just about every software ever made at the Apple site. Ah yes, and gas was 75 cents a gallon too Does anyone have the plug-in or whatever they were called, they included fog, rain and stars and others.

I think they were added after the original iMovie came out. I have them on a Power Mac but the motherboard went out and cost to much to fix. Download the latest version from the Mac App Store. I sure miss that version, which I used regularly. Never use the new version s. This is a game-changer for me because I have struggled and struggled to edit on the later versions of iMovie and absolutely hate them.

Version 6 was brilliantly simple and intuitive — so of course they had to go and ruin it. Really glad to find your excellent support here to get back to the iMovie I loved — it will save me literally days! Kind regards, JK. Thanks a ton. Steen Thanks, Steen, I had a typo in the download url. Massive lifesaver! This lets me do even more, even though iMovie HD is a bit dated.

Thanks for providing a link when Apple refuses to! I also dislike the new versions of iMovie. I thank you ever so much, you saved my video life. When I was in the music biz in Hollywood I always had an engineer to do the mixing, etc.

Now I am trying to figure out how to put some of my songs on youtube with just a simple black screen and the lyric over the music. Startpage got me here for an upgrade from 6. Thanks so much for the archiving of the application. Stopped at On youtube I have been unable to discover how to work with text. Using the editing button and the music video title is very limiting, either right or left and short sentences.

Any suggestions? Any ideas? I loved this version so much! Almost as much as I hate the newer versions. I had all but given up on video editing. This download was perfect and I am excited to jump into all the home movies that have been sitting untouched for the past two years. Sad if that connection is lost now. I made the mistake of updating when a few errors started reoccurring in my old HD software.

Without your link, I would have lost 7 months of hard work. I really wish there was something out there that is free, similar to this software, and runs with little error. Anyways, thank you. Get a sufficiently large external hard drive to exceed what you have already filled on your internal drive and use Carbon Copy Cloner to make a bootable copy of your entire hard drive. Then, when you want to work in iMovie, boot up with the external drive. Also, if you find you have lost the sounds in iLife Sound Effects, in the Audio pane of your iMHD6, you can still find them on your hard drive and drag that folder to your desktop, from where you can select the sound effect you want and drag it into your movie.

Any ideas, what to do? Thank you for posting this. Importing an mp4 file gets converted to a dv file. When I force quit iMovie, I can usually find the. Simon Update… When importing large files into iMovie 6, like a file converted from a VHS tape, the system may report that the iMovie application is not responding. Robert — Can I give you a big kiss?

Pay you something for your efforts? Sweep your floors? Wanting to transfer my old miniDV tapes to my computer, I just spent four hours trying to import a 3-minute clip into the newest iMovie. The dang thing kept chopping up everything into individual clips and placing them out of sequence in the Events window, just to make it even more confusing and difficult. Thanks for nothing, Apple.

Based on things I had read elsewhere, I was expecting to have to hack something in order to get it to run, if it would run at all. I held my breath and launched it. When I saw that old familiar opening splash screen pop up, I just about cried. I jumped out of my chair and fist pumped. Dave LOL. Happy New Year, everyone! Not surprised to find lots of other users who love imovie HD and hate the more recent versions. Any good tips out there? Thanks Robert for keeping the flame alive.

I still have not found a better editor — just got to sort the exports! If you are wanting to take your movies from the old iMac to a newer model, you could share them back to your video camera, from which you load them onto the new iMac. Preferably you want to share back with a miniDV, or tape format cam, which should make your new video lossless. EJ : Hey folks, it has been months now with no reply to me asking for help ??

Would appreciate some tutoring. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!! I despise all the later iMOvies. They have no finesse. I had to hang on to my old computer just to run iMovie 6. If you have an old photo shop that will work I will be forever in your debt. Forest EJ, I agree with Forest. Still sounds kind of painful though. I am trying to figure out how to do one simple thing.

I want to be able to put my lyrics on a black screen in sync with my songs. When I try the text is limited to just titles with a small window for seeing them. I see videos all the time with text all over yhe screen in different fonts and points. Can this be done with iMovie? Something more complex would likely require software like Final Cut Pro. Robert, Please. Just need a little help on how to put full screen text my lyrics on a black screen to put on youtube. And thank you yet again. That was on January 12th. Forest I found that post and some others that were awaiting approval.

Forest See for my basics. I mis wrote about youtube but meant imovie. Seeking the most simple presentation of my music and lyrics. Music plays from embedded mp3 and words are on the screen duuration of each song part verse, bridge, chorus 10 years ago I made a youtube vid with imovie 2.

OK, that YouTube reference kinda threw me off your intentions. It is quite easy really. Play with those by adding some text into the box which appears when you click on one of the 4 scroll options, to see which suits you — then — with text in the box, click on the scroll option you like in order to see it play on the movie screen. Now, the tricky part will be to time your scrolling words with the playing of the music. You can vary the speed and duration of the scroll and also select what font and size you need for the text. You can make it like the Stars Wars opening scene, where the text scrolls off into the distance if you want.

It might be better to use small blocks of video with text added, as you go, rather than one big video clip containing all of the text. Making use of the timeline, based on 30 frames of video per second, which runs along the bottom of the movie window, you can time how long a lyric section lasts and then very precisely time the scrolling words to the music by using the speed and duration sliders in the editing pane. Forest Thanks a lot. Somehow I am not communicating my simple desire well enough or iMovie is not used on youtube and some other program or application is used?

The video had music under it and still pictures that faded with the music. We all have gone a million times to news sites, etc. Then another will show up, perhaps different text or something but it hangs there for a while also. Have you been to that forum to see if someone there can offer any advice? I recently bought a used MacBook Pro retina running Sierra I want to work on a video project and want to use iMovie. I will be using Raw files from a Nikon camera- stills only.

Whats the best version of iMovie I could use?!? Good luck, though! Hi Rob, thanks for your reply. Forest Well, I am in the ball park now Forest. I have the basics of Scrolling Box, etc. My problem is this: I have followed the iMovie help and still am not able to lengthen my clips??? I select it with correct prefs set up. I put the slider at the point to be stretched to and the clip deselects. I try changing the time in the editing and even double spacing the lyrics to see if it makes a difference. Your advice has gotten me far along. Can you figure out what I am not doing?

I am really anxious to get my music on youtube. When you do preview something, it plays back as a continuous loop which you can stop playing by clicking on a button in the monitor. I especially enjoyed this feature when I was previewing video effects, such as the new batch of Quartz Composer effects. The Graphic EQ effect provides a slider equalizer for manually adjusting audio, with seven presets to get you started.

It appears to be a brute-force tool—just one slider controls the degree to which the effect is applied—but it worked well in my tests. Apple is looking into the problem. New features are welcome, of course, but how does iMovie HD 6 perform? As with some previous releases, the answer is not consistent. On my Power Mac G5, performance has been stellar.

However, reports from some Macworld editors and readers indicate that some people are running into slow, choppy playback and other glitches. One early culprit with iMovie and QuickTime 7.
