IMovie 11 :: Moving Photos Around Within Project?

I am creating a slide show using imovie and when I imported the folder from iphoto, it rearranged all the photos. Is there an easy way to move them around within the project? I'm using imovie'11 for the first time.

Aperture :: Moving Photos From A Project In To Folders?
I want to decrease the size of my projects by putting photos in folders inside of a project.

I click on a project.. say "Family Photos".. I add a folder to this project and name it Family Photos 2009. Now I want to put photos from my project into this new folder. I can't drag photos to the folder. I can't drag a project of 2009 family photos to a folder. When I try, the photo or project bounces back.

Applications :: Project File Is Missing From IMovie HD / Unable To Open Project
Alright so I was making this video that was really really really difficult to do and I got to like 3:00 of it today and I've been saving, then it just freezes and refuses to do anything. I then realise my external drive somehow turned off for a random reason, so I plugged it back in and it started working again, but then I reopened my project and I get this error

I click on ignore all and it's all in the trash, and what really pisses me off about this is that it took me weeks and weeks and weeks of time to do, there's no way I can redo this all over again. What can I do to get rid of the skipped message and make it all work again´┐Ż

IMovie 11 :: Fixing Loss Of Quality From IMovie Project To Burned DVD?
I have read some strings regarding this subject but I'm still left with questions.

I have created a photo collage set to music, in iMovie. It's 12 minutes long, and when I play it in iMovie on my computer, it looks great. All the photos are crystal clear, rich with color, and vibrant in all the right places.

Aperture :: Project With No Photos Visible Says 301 Photos?
I have just reorganised my aperture library. my original layout was one project with lots of albums. i am not using any referenced photos.

i have moved all my photos out of albums and into projects. when i did this, aperture asked each time if i wanted to move the masters, i said yes. once moved i then deleted each original album.

i am now left with my new structure based on projects, but my original project which now has no visible photos in it but says it still has 301 photos in the inspector, when i try to delete this project, it says:

"Some versions based on these master files are included in albums outside the project. These versions will be removed from all Albums, Books, Light Tables, Web Pages, Web Journals, and MobileMe Albums."

i dont have any albums other than maybe some books that i have made (though i thought these were projects). the total number of photos in my books is more than 301.

can anyone please offer some advice on what i can do to find these 301 photos that i cant see in my original project?

Applications :: IMovie Still Photos, Multiple Photos Become 1 Clip...
Okay, I was working with iMovie and did something cool...but I don't know how I did it or how to repeat what I did.

I managed to make one "clip" which consists of 6 or 7 photos (imported from iPhoto)...and on top of (inside of?) that clip is the "far far away" title (the Star Wars one). I tried to do the same thing again, and couldn't figure out how I did it in the first place! Oops. Any clues would be great (I tried highlighting several pics and dragging them down to the timeline together...didn't work. I also tried a few other things, but no luck).

Applications :: IMovie 5 HD Project In IMovie 8?
I have a project file that was created using iMovie 5 HD. In this project file were a large number of unused clips and also the final film, edited with transitions, backing music, end credits, etc.

However when I import this project file into iMovie 8 I cannot find the final edited film anywhere, just all the clips that were both used and unused within the project file.

How can I get the final film back without spending about a week re-editing everything?

Applications :: Won't Import Imovie Project Files Into Imovie / Not Recognizing Files
So, I have all of my imovie projects backed up on my external harddrive, as well as the imovie program. I accidentally deleted all of the imovie projects and events from the imovie application on my laptop. When I try to re-import the imovie files into imovie, it doesn't recognize the files. I have tried to convert them with iSkySoft Video Converter. That converter program does not recognize the files either. I also tried burning the files onto a disc and then pulling them off the disc with the Handbrake program. This doesn't work either. I also tried importing the files into iMovie HD, which I have on my desktop, but to no avail. Are these files alll useless now? I'm at my wits end because I have spent literally months compiling footage for a documentary.

IDVD (iLife 09/11) :: Sharing More Than One IMovie Project To A Single IDVD Project?
New to iMovie and iDVD - I've created several iMovie projects, when I try to share them to iDVD they each end up being a separate .dvdproj file. iDVD does not accept me dragging a second .dvdproj into a single iDVD project. iMovie has other share options Other options (like Quicktime) but they end up distorting the image quality or aspect ratio. Sharing more than one iMovie project to an iDVD project seems like it should be a standard option, yet I can't seem to find how to add more than one iMovie project to a single iDVD project?

Aperture :: Moving Folders To New Project?
I am trying to move folders full of albums to a new project with no luck at all. Sure, the folder moves and albums move but the referenced images do not show up under the new project if I just click on that. Once I move everything out of the old project and delete it the original images go away. The only work around seems to be individually copying every referenced image to new albums in new folders in the new project.I am trying to reorganize and so far not enjoying it.

Aperture :: Moving A Version To New Project?
I have several hundred photos in a Project. I want to take six or eight images to another project/album to further process but leave some version image in the original Project so the Project remains complete.

I make a version and drag it to a new project. The original comes with, leaving the original Project not whole.

How do I move a copy somewhere else, and would you suggest "somewhere else" is folder, project, album?

Final Cut Pro :: Moving A Project From Avid?
How can I move a project that has almost finished editing on an Avid system to my FCP system?

The project is at AFI and they're kind of behind the times

I want to finish the edit on FCP -- and it never has to go back to the Avid.

And, no, we cannot afford to buy Automatic Duck (yeah, right -- $500 to move a project. I don't think so. It's cheaper to redigitize all the tapes.)

Aperture :: Images Don't Appear When Moving An Album Into A New Project?
I've been scanning negatives into Aperture using a project (Scans) as a "holding" point until I determine which actual project to move the images to. I put these scanned images into various albums within Scans. When I've decided what actual project to move them to, I drag the album to that project, then drag the images themselves (or vice versa). A lot of times, the images will move to that project but won't show up in the album I just dragged unless I quit and restart Aperture. I never had this problem before upgrading to v.3.

IMovie 11 :: Can Add A Trailer To A Project

IMovie 11 :: No Sound - Project Created In 09
I have a similar, yet different audio issue than what others have posted about in the forums. I have a friend who created a wedding video in iMovie 09 for us, we created the iDVD project, exported, burned, and shipped it to the client. The client wanted a few misc changes, and we've since upgraded our MBP's to iLife 2011, and when we open the same project with the same events in the same folder structure, the audio from the songs in the project have no volume.

The system volume is on and turned up, we tried removing and re-adding the songs to the file, that doesn't help. I can bring up and play correctly the audio file in the audio preview window without issues, and I can play the files in iTunes, but the files won't play in the iMovie 2011 project. We've rebooted, we've checked that the files aren't drm protected, we checked volume levels, ducking all the usual things. Another interesting thing, is that when just hovering in the project window, and hitting the space bar to play the project, that does not play the audio, but I can skim in the project window and hear the audio of the files. It seems like some sort of glitch in iMovie, anyone have any thoughts?

IMovie 11 :: Old Project Comes Out Choppy On New Version
A couple of years ago, I asked on this forum the best setting to export an iMovie project in HD and to burn in a Bluray format on a DVD. I got a good answer and it worked. After picking up iMovie'11 I dug up that old project, rendered it and burned it under the same settings as before. This time, the movie came out a choppy.

The settings I used, which I noted so I would not forget are:
file format MP4
H.264 data rate 18000 kbits/sec
image size 1920x1080HD
frame rate 29.97
keyframe 24
streaming not enabled

I can go into to the settings I use on Toast but I can see the difference in the resulting video even before burning it to DVD. Also the file size of the resulting video is bigger than the old file size. (When I couldn't get the same quality I went digging for the old video connected to the old project and found it. But I want to make sure I can duplicate the nice video for future videos which is why I'm writing on this forum.)

The old video size in 1.04 gig. While the new video (same project and same export settings) comes out at 1.26 gig. But whatever I do--change the settings or try different exports like .mov--the choppiness is still there. I can't seem to duplicate the smoothness of that old movie. Again, I'm exporting the project using the same settings as before. My main goal is to be able to create a 1080 movie that runs smooth like movies should.

Final Cut Pro :: Moving Project Breaks Merged Clips?
This is a complex and difficult problem to describe by writing, apologies if it's not clear. I've been working for several months on a large project that was shot double system: video imported as Pro Res (shot in HDV) and audio (recorded on DAT) that was transfered to aiff files. So I had 43 cassettes of video (with each shot automaticall being it's own clip - as it was HDV) and then 13 one hour aiff files of the DAT audio. In FCP I broke down each video clip and synced it with it's audio and created merged clips. I had trouble while creating the merged clips as detailed in this thread ( Originally the merged clips when opened has the audio and video totally out of sync and were useless, and when I went back and made the reel names match between the DAT aiff files and the video, then the re-merged the clips they were in sync. So everything has been okay since then.

Now, after working for months on one computer, I moved the entire project to another computer. I copied all of the files from the old computer into the new computer so the files and everything are the same. But upon opening the project on the new computer everything is offline and I need to re-connect all of the media. However when I do reconnect it all, now all of my merged clips (there are atleast 2000 of them) are all out of sync again (of note, when I reconnect I always get the error message "reel names doesn't match" and I choose "continue" as when ever I choose "try again" it wont reconnect the media). Is there any other way around this issue other than having to go back and spend another 3 weeks laboriously manually changing the reel names of and re-re-mergeing each of the thousands of indivdual merged clips (in order to have them be useable, in-sync merged clips)? Even if I do this, I know that in a few weeks I will be bringing the project back to the orginal computer, and again everything will be off line and then I'll have to once again change reel names for each clip, and re-re-re-merged them to get it all working again.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Moving Regions - Copy Tracks To New Project
I am working on a project on Logic Pro 8 in which every time I move a region (audio or midi) in the arrange window, the sound disappears. If I move any region any amount of distance, or copy a region - the sound for every region in the project becomes disabled or deactivated somehow. And its not that the output just goes - I mean I can't even get an input signal. Its like moving regions somehow deletes everything - except everything is still there. And moving the region back where it came from doesn't help. I have to undo the original region move, and then, and only then will the project play back. Is there a way to copy all the tracks into a new project? I mean, I need to be able to move regions.

IMovie 11 :: Cannot Open Project Saved In Library
I'm having massive problems with iMovie which make it unusable. I can start it up, start a new project and add video, but then if I close it and reopen it, although I can see the project in the project library it will not open and let me continue with it. Trailers are even worse - not only can I not open a saved project (it ignores me) but the actual process of doing any editing does not work. Clicking on the three tabs (outline, storyboard, shotlist) routinely renders the app inoperative.

When I drag video into the shot list it randomly crashes, the +/- buttons to add/remove cast members does not work, the two play buttons above the shot list tab don't do anything - I could go on. Even when I start a new trailer I just get a spinning ball in a black screen instead of a preview. Do you know of any totally incompatible software that could be causing this? It does the exact same thing on my new iMac as well.

IMovie 11 :: Audio Offset In Project After Exporting?
I have had the worst luck with a video project i am currently trying to export. it is a little over 9 minutes long, and around the 7 minute mark (in the exported version only) the audio comes about 3 seconds earlier than the video. there are no problems through the first 2/3rds of the video.

i have tried everything i can think to do from deleting selections of the video, replacing it with different clips, restarting imovie, restarting my computer, exporting it in different sizes, exporting it directly, and exporting it through quicktime.

IMovie 11 :: Displaying Wrong Clips From Project?
i have a small project less than 3 minutes long consisting entirely of pictures and transitions and music track (no video clips). everything was working fine till this morning. now anytime i add pictures to the project, their thumbnails appear correctly in project view but the wrong image is displayed in the movie itself. (the picture imovie displays is from a picture somewhere else already in the project. this happens no matter which pictures i add and no matter where i add them. tried restarting the mac, duplicating the project and editing the duplicate, all same result. when i create a completely new project, the images display fine. but adding to this specific project, none of the added images display their own image (except in project view), they are always displaying another picture's image (where that other picture was already in the project).

i imagine something is corrupt but i don't know what. if the project is corrupt, are there any steps to go about "uncorrupting" it? i really don't want to have to recreate the project all over again.

IMovie 11 :: No Audio In Project - Working Between Versions
I started a project in IM08 with many clips and add. audio tracks, about 100 mins long. Now using IM11 I wanted to finish it. I cant add any new audio tracks to the project. They show up, everything looks regular, all settings look like the tracks that work but there is no sound. You can even move or duplicate the old sound tracks and they play but nothing new.

What I tried:
1.Duplicate the project and try again. Failed!
2.Restart the whole thing: Add clips again and new tracks. Well its works, but I have to edit the whole project from scratch (100 minutes)

IMovie 11 :: Adding Transitions - Entire Project Crashes
I have been encountering a little problem on iMovie 11, when adding transitions (cross fade, cross blur etc.). Although I have been able to add a couple to the current project I'm working on, I am now finding that when I try to add another it malfunctions. When you bring a transition across to the editing suite, the area you drop it into is highlighted with a green bar between the clips in question; however when I try to drop the transition in, the green bar just stays there, and the entire project crashes - I can't spool through the rest of the clips.

To make sure I don't ruin my project, I simple do Apple+Z to undo, close the programme, and then reopen it, and nothing is lost.

IMovie 11 :: Project Opening Sequence Corrupted When Published
I'm a very adept user of imovie and have quickly picked up imovie11. I have made several movies that all use the same title sequence. When I publish them (I've tried youtube, itunes, media browser and mobile me) one of them posts just as I created it. The other two have seriously corrupt opening sequences (I have a transition, text/title screen and music in the opening sequence - not complicated). The opening sequence is scrambled, a bunch of broken horizontal images, then plays the rest of the movie just fine.
