iMovie: Use iMovie HD after migrating to a new computer

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

After using Setup Assistant or Migration Assistant to migrate applications from a computer that has iMovie installed (version 4.0.1 or earlier) to a computer that has iMovie HD installed (version 5 or later), the destination computer will have both iMovie and iMovie HD installed. The iMovie icon on the Dock of any migrated users will open the older version of iMovie, which will not have as many features as iMovie HD and may not function properly with other iLife applications. The older version of iMovie can safely be removed from the system and iMovie HD should be used instead.
