Problems with iMovie 09 and FCP

Recommended Posts


I currently have a hackintosh that I *thought* was perfect until I tried using my Canon HF10 camcorder with it. Basically, if I try and capture using either iMovie or FCP, both apps crash.



Asus P5K Pro

Q6600 @ 3.1ghz

4gb Ram

ATI Radeon 4870


Snow Leopard 10.6.2 (Retail)


I've seen a few other posts about this problem, but has there ever been a definite fix? If so, how can I fix this?

Having the same type of issue with my Canon HF20 camcorder. Running 10.6.3 EP45-DSL3, 2.83GHz Core 2 Duo, 8GB, and nVidia GTX 260 896Mb. Sometimes iMovie will freeze, and other times it won't. Seems like it is just taking a long time to read from the camera. When I have been able to import, half of the videos fail.


This being said. I'm not having any issues with my late 2007 MBP 15' importing from this camera into iMovie. It's running 4Gb's, 8600GT, and 2.2GHz
