IMovie 11 :: Stuck On "Generating Thumbnails"?


I upgraded from the previous version of iLife to iLife '11 today and when I went to use iMovie it has been stuck generating thumbnails all day.

I'm running 10.6.4 and have 4 GB of ram on an iMac. I also have 78 gigs of free space.

Is anyone else having this issue?

IMovie 11 :: Wont Stop Generating Thumbnails
I imported a couple videos. After they were complete, a window popped up saying "processing event: new event" but it took forever and I had to shut down before it was finished.

Now, every time i open iMovie, that window pops up and it says: "generating thumbnails." The time remaining is 4570 hours and climbing. It never gets anywhere and I can't click on anything. Is there any way to make it stop? Or should I reinstall iMovie 11?

Applications :: After Importing Movie No Thumbnails Are Generating?
I have iMovie '09 (8.0.2), and my Mac is full updated as well!

So, i have some mp4 files. I import them into an Event and then there are NO THUMBNAILS! GAH!

I did this a million times in iMovie '08! What is going on here?

Since i come from a Windows world, the first thing i tried is rebooting...no luck

OS X Leopard :: Generating Thumbnails Interrupts Me Renaming Files?
In Finder, when I open a new folder that I have copied from another computer, or even a folder that I copied a bunch of files from another folder on my computer, Finder will start to generate thumbnails if these files are a bunch of photos or videos.

While it's doing that, I like to go through and rename the files. But often when I try to rename a file, in the middle of typing in the new filename, Finder moves on to generate the thumbnail for the next file, and automatically takes away the focus, which makes Finder think my partially entered filename is the new filename. This is very frustrating because the alternative seems to sit there and wait for Finder to generate thumbnails (which can be very time consuming when I'm working with hundreds of files in a folder at a time).

Is there any way to stop Finder from taking away the focus, or turn off automatic thumbnail generation temporarily until after I finish renaming my files?

Aperture :: Multiple Export Hangs While Generating Thumbnails?
I was almost ready to write a blog post claiming that while AP3 has its share of bugs, it's not the unusable mess some have painted it to be. This morning I'm no so sure anymore. I think this is stellar update with tons of potential. When it works it screams on my machine and the new features are amazing. But guys, i need the basics to work.

Here's what I've just sent t via the feedback form:

I've been trying to export 29 pictures in web format for the past 40 minutes. I've had to force-quit AP three times and restart my machine twice. Aperture starts exporting at a normal pace but then completely hangs on a "generating thumbnails" process. At this point it becomes impossible to either cancel the task or quit Aperture normally. It also kicks my iMac's fan into overdrive - something that NEVER happens.

This is not good.

Other problems:

random crashes while using brushes.

second display doesn't follow "blank" command and keeps reverting to "alternate" even when the menu says Blank.

This is a great version of Aperture with a lot of potential. These bugs are killing me though.

I've just rebuilt the database. If it's still not working I'm going to remove plugins and see if it helps. Anyone else having problems with this?

Applications :: Does IMovie 09 Use So Much RAM When Creating Thumbnails?
Seriously, it's absolutely ridiculous and brings my entire system to a crawl until I restart. Just look at how many page outs I have after iMovie is done making thumbnails of one seven minute clip:

My CPU usage during this process was around 10% so what gives? I have an early 2009 iMac with 4GB's of RAM.

Software :: Unable To View Thumbnails In Imovie Hd / Each Thumbnail Is Shaded In Green
I upgraded to imovie 08 last year and have not been able to learn how to use it. As I still have imovie hd, I opened a new project in the old imovie hd and imported some photos and movies (.mov) files. When the movies and photos came in, each thumbnail is shaded in green. I cannot see through this green shading to the photos or movies at all. Even when I click on the thumbnail of either a photo or movie it just comes up as a large green square, however when I 'play' the movie file from the clip viewer I can see the contents of the movie. As soon as I stop playing it, the clip goes back to having the green shading over the top. Have you heard of this before and is there anything I can try to fix it. I have looked in the forum but cannot see anything specific to this problem

OS X Leopard :: Generating CSR With Subject Alternative Name Via GUI?
I support a Issuing CA which provides Client / Server Authentication certificates for use in EAP/TLS 802.1x wireless authentication (Cisco ACS is RADIUS platform and certificates are compared to Active Directory computer objects). The standard certificate template which we use to issue such certificates is dependent upon a Subject Alternative Name field which needs to be supported in the CSR request we receive.

I've found OPENSSL instructions that prescribe making conf changes to support including SubjectAltName in openSSL generated CSRs, but this conf apparently does not govern the CSRs which are generated inside Leopard's "Certificate Assistant". Is there a modifiable conf file that can be manipulated similarly which is effective for CSRs which are generated through the "Certificate Assistant" interface or some other way to support this? OpenSSL conf modification information for reference: [URL].

Software :: Prevent Custom Icons From Generating Automatically?
I just upgraded from Tiger to Leopard 10.5.5. I realized that whenever I open the finder window in Leopard, all icons (especially documents and image files) automatically changes to custom icons with a miniature image of the contents.

in Tiger, the only time you got the custom icon is if you specifically generated one.

How do I turn off this feature? I just want to see generic icons for documents.

OS X Leopard :: Generating PDFs - Preview - Adobe Viewing Extra Text
I sent off my PDF document that I generated from Pages using CMD+P, then saving the document as a PDF. This was a response to an RFP that we were a shoe in for. The value was $500,000. However, when it went to printers, they opened the file on a Windows machine using Adobe (not sure the version). They printed and bound 4 copies of our proposal, 165 pages each copy, and then the package was mailed.

However, after it was sent, I had a chance to look at one of the extra copies made, and to my dismay, I saw exclamation points and quotation marks on the pages, particularly at the start of a margin with tabbed text. Our proposal probably won't make the cut now. It looks perfect in Preview, however. And now when I checked the file in Adobe (latest for OS X), it has the same anomalous text on my Mac. So definitely a software problem such that, Adobe is not playing nice with generated PDFs from OS X. This has happened a few times in the past... but now here it is again. Maybe it is a corrupt font problem, and Adobe PDF Reader is the only one affected? A picture of an example is attached (the exclamation points and the quotation marks are NOT supposed to be there, they only show in Adobe Reader). [URL]

Final Cut / DVD Studio :: Build Always Hangs At Generating Transition
I've done several different slideshow projects in Dvd Studio Pro 4 over the last year, but I'm stuck on my latest one. As always, I import a pile of jpegs and MP3s, throw them into slideshows, convert to tracks, link the tracks and build. I've never had a problem till now. Any time I try to add transitions between slides, Build always hangs at "Generating Transition: Slideshow 1, Clip 1..." which is the first transition. The Cancel button is dead and I have to Force Quit. I've turned transitions off not set for all tracks, and build works just fine, producing a playable DVD image, so I know my imported media is not a problem.

Snow Leopard :: Finder Not Generating Image Preview For Some JPEG Files
Finder (in Snow Leopard) is not generating preview icons for some of my JPEG images. I know of ways of generating thumbnails for these images, e.g. using Pinki or 'Create Icon/Preview' in GraphicConverter, but these thumbnails don't have the white border around them like previews icons generated automatically by Finder. I have the option set to 'Show icon preview' in the view options of the folder with the problematic JPEGs, so I am not sure why these particular images are not working as the rest (most have preview icons). Is there anything I could try to get this working?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: SIU Generating NetRestore Image With Many 0-byte Files
I'm having a problem with SIU generating images for netboot. I've been able to create a NetInstall image from the 10.6 DVD and install it onto a MBP with no problem. However, when I switch to creating a NetRestore image (I want to be able to install additional software and updates), the generated DMG contains a lot of zero-byte files. Specifically, my first headache is that /sbin/launchd (and most other things in /sbin and /bin) are zero-byte. This is obviously causing a kernel panic on the client.Has anyone else run into this? I'm stuck until I can get these images working.

I don't have great bash skills nor can I get dscl to jump through hoops. I can get individual GUID's for a user using # dscl /LDAPv3/127.0.0.1/ -read /Search/Users/username but waht I would like to do is generate a list of all the users and their GUIDS ?how I can do that?

Final Cut / Motion :: Using Outline - Not Generating Proper Outline
When putting on the outline on a text, it seems to cut of the outline. Looks like the outline is inside a max square around each letter.

Type a 0 (zero) and put on a big outline for about 6. Watch the edges, no nice round circle at the top and the bottom, looks like it gets cutoff somehow.

What is the status of the text generator in Motion, is it really good ? Or can we use other generators that also publish it self to FCP for the input.

IMovie 11 :: Why Can't I Download Mts Files From Canon Hf20 To IMovie 11
I have searched and searched and searched for a solution to this problem and I can not find it. I have a new Mac desktop (10.6.4) with iMovie 11. I have a Canon HF20. All I want to do is download my videos and burn them on Dvd's.

When I connect the Hf20 to the computer, open iMovie and then click on "File, import, movies," the .mts files are blacked out if you will and can not be selected. I was told by someone on the this site that you have to download them directly from your camcorder and that if they are on your computer already, you can't load them into iMovie. Well, I tried it and it didn't work.

IMovie 11 :: IMovie 11 Import Bug - Not Showing Any Clips?
Just installed the new iMovie 11 (well, all of iLife 11). Did a restart just to be safe.Opened iMovie and it updated a few things in video events, etc. Popped my SD card with some new movies on it. Import window came up as usual and proceeded to import about 20 short clip. About half way though, iMovie just locked up. No response. Waited about 30 min or so, and finally did a Force Quit and restarted the machine.how, the Import From window shows no clips.

I archived the SD card to my machine, formatted it, and took a single video clip (just to rule out the files on the card getting corrupted as the culprit). Still, the Import From window shows no clips. Any ideas?It seems as if I can't get iMovie to recognize any clips on my SD card.

IMovie 11 :: Clips Missing Audio After Exported From IMovie?
While in iMovie, there was no problem with the video and audio but after exporting, 3 clips out of the whole project were missing the audio. After trying numerous things like deleting the clip from the timeline and putting it back in, undoing the audio skimming, exporting using quicktime, movie and DVD, nothing worked. We even took out the clips missing the audio and created a new project and those exported perfectly with both audio and video. What worked in the end was going into "clip" and detaching the audio. Doesn't make sense but it worked and I was able to export and create a DVD with the audio.
