I've been editing a video in macbook and it's running out of space..

How do I move the data to a new computer so that I can continue editing the video?

I ran into this as well, the YouTube video iMovie: How to transfer iMovie Project Files Between Mac Computers and backing up iMovie files. helped.

Basically, you create a Library in iMovie, then copy the project into the Library.

I tested this up to the point where I saw it created a 200 MB iMovie file, I didn't test to make sure it imports and functions correctly.


See this video - How to Export an iMovie Project.

  • I find that a lot of youtube videos take 10 minutes to explain something that can be covered in 2 sentences (not sure about this one, I just assume so). Plus lots of "don't forget to like and subscribe." Apr 16 at 3:21
