    The setup:
    Formac Device using Vidi capturing .dv 2 gig files.
    iMovie 5HD
    After importing clips into iMovie 5HD and saving, can I then delete the original clips or does iMove reference them?
    Thanks Wayne.

    If it is like other software, the originals files are used. I would'nt delete until you are happy with the final saved project.

    Look under where you are saving your project. If there is a folder with video files exactly like yours, then it should be okay to delete. But in MY experience it only does that when I use iMovie to capture the video, otherwise it still looks for the files.

    So I'd say keep the files just in case until you're done with them.
