HELP: small video job for a friend

I've noticed that GS doesn't have a post section
I have a G5 with 10.3.8 and quicktime 6.4
A friend of mine who is producing a TV show in NY is here and has done an interview with someone and has made a mess of the audio and has already edited the video with its correlated audio. She wants to know if I can "sweeten" in a forensic way (save) the audio from her interview (LO level). between eq comp gates and inflator I can probably deal with the audio problem.
She has recorded this on a non pro DV camera, edited it in iMovie and she's bringing me a copy in DVD on monday at 10.
1. is the iMovie format convertable to Quicktime?
2. If I save this work for her, how do I lay it back onto the original video?
3. or how do I do this
I've RTFM and although I understand all the concepts, I've never had anyone bring me this type of work and though I have a G5, I've never opened these programs untill today because I've never had the need.
If it's QT compatable, I import the movie to PT, do the deed, export back to iMovie and lay it back and burn a DVD, is this right?
If it's not QT compatable what do I do?
I can't find anything written anywhere that says that an iMovie is QT compatable, is it possible that it isn't?
sorry for such a stupid question but it's an emergency.

Probably not the best place for your post. You'd be better off asking people more focused on video rather than audio.

1. Yes iMovie uses quicktime. you can export from it into quicktime.

2. Yes you can , as far as I know.

3. If you play the video back with the cam pluged in and in record mode , the video should play back over the dv cable and you can record it back.

Hope this helps.
