Read Me First: iMove Welcome

Welcome to the iMovie Forum

This forum is for the discussion of Apple's iMovie product (part of iLife).

Try this first:
If you are experiencing some odd behavior try these things first:

  1. Restart your computer and try the task again with only iMovie running. Sometimes a restart can fix things and it's an easy thing to try.
  2. Use Apple's Disk Utility Application to Repair Permissions, Restart the computer and try the task again

To get the most out of this forum, when asking for help please remember:

  • You can perform a Search to see if your question has been previously covered
  • Post the version of iMovie and version of Mac OSi X you are using. Some issues may be specific to either or both of those items
  • Be reasonably descriptive as to where in your process a problem is occurring.
  • If things were working normally, when did the new problem occur? For example, did you recently run a software update just before the problem occurred?

To find out what version of iMovie you are using:

  1. With iMovie running, choose iMovie menu > About iMovie
  2. A dialog will open listing the version number

To find out what version of Mac OS X you are using:

  1. Click on your Desktop to make the Finder the active application
  2. Choose Apple menu > About This Mac. A dialog opens and the version number is listed there.
