I have enabled iCloud for iMovie, but they don't show up in the iMovie Media of my other MacBook.

Is it possible to access iMovie Projects with iCloud?

iMovie is enabled: enter image description here

Can't see iMovie in iCloud folder: enter image description here

Neither in the web: enter image description here

  • Can you clarify "iMovie files" ? Ones you edit, or the final mov output ? – anki Jan 12 '20 at 19:51
  • Hi @ankii, the ones I'm editing (the so called Projects). – biotech Jan 13 '20 at 9:49
  • I'm a bit irritated about the "iCloud backup" statement. iCloud is not a backup, it's just cloud-based storage. Did you actually store a project in iCloud already (from within iMovie)? – nohillside Jan 13 '20 at 9:59
  • @nohillside, this is exactly what I mean. I have never stored an iMovie Project in iCloud (this is what I need) – biotech Jan 13 '20 at 10:07

    Please open iMovie and check if you can store to iCloud from there. Adding yet another Findet screenshot doesn‘t add new information. – nohillside Jan 13 '20 at 12:15

Choose File > Open Library > New.

In the Save dialog that appears, type a name for the new library, and navigate to the location where you want to save it.

The default location is the Movies folder in your home folder.

Click Save.

A new library is created in the location you chose, and a new, empty event with today’s date is created.

I don't have iMovie, so you need to check if iCloud is allowed there. If not, you need to copy paste items from ~/Movies to iCloud.

As for iCloud backup that you mention, it could be system preferences etc that are backed up, not the Library itself.

Seems the issue has not been solved by Apple yet. I ended up by saving iMovie projects to an external usb drive and working there with the other Mac I have.
