Anyone out there have a PowerMate and an Intel Mac? I have loaded the newest drivers 1.6.4 which is Universal Binary and made for Intel and non-Intel Macs.

Even though I have set the prefs to scroll right and left in both the Global and iMovie settings, all its wants to do is play with the volumn.

I use to use it in iMovie to edit frames. It ain't easy using a mouse!

Any ideas??

Randy,

I own a PowerMate (had to dig it out of the closet) and an Intel Mac. Since I don't have a current iMovie project to work on, I changed the global settings so that rotate left would do a cmd-[ and a rotate right would do a cmd-] because those keystrokes are used in the Finder and most browsers. The new assigned keys worked just fine.

I also am using 1.6.4. Have you tried trashing the preferences (I assume you have)?

I also tried loading some QuickTime video into iMovie and it worked. I did it "Apply Now" after I looked at the iMovie settings. At first, I think I got the volume control as you did.

Playing with the PowerMate system preference panel again (it's been awhile), it looks like you have to apply the preferences that you want to use. If you go into another program where the global settings take effect, it looks like you have to go back into the PowerMate preferences to change them back to the preferences that you want. In your case, that's iMovie.

I don't remember the preferences being so tempermental before, but it's been awhile.
