I update to 10.0.1 and it crashed updating projects/events. I follewed the instructions in the link "if updating is interrupted.." and the same thing. I get a "problem report" that starts with

  • Imovie crashing when copying Projects and Events to external

    This is driving me crazy. Imovie keeps crashing when I try and copy some of my projects and events to the external from within iMovie. I can copy the project and event files separately as a work-around, but it's taking me forever. These are very short movies, less than 3 minutes, and the original footage is from a Kodak zi6. I've already copied more than 40, and all went well. Now it keeps crashing.
    Why can't I just copy from the Finder. It would be a LOT faster. I'd like to keep the projects/ events linked so that I can edit in the future, if necessary.
    External: Firewire, Guid Partition Table, and Mac OS extended (journaled). Lots of free room on both drives.

    I found the solution and just want to share with you...
    1. I closed iMovie
    2. I renamed my existing root folder projects and events by adding a '_' at the beginning of the folder name.
    3. I copied all my content (projects and events) within the finder and not as normally recommended within iMovie from the internal to the new external hard drive.
    4. When starting iMovie again the newly copied folder are recognized and it takes a while (depending of the amount of clips and projects) until iMovie is available after this start.
    5. The events and projects are now shown in the new external harddrive and all files are accesible. Also all clips from the events are correctly linked in the projects.
    I have tried this way since the normal decribed routine did not work on my iMac (iMovie crashed every time).

  • IMovie 10 crashes when attempt to update projects and events of external HDs.

    No way to update projects and events. Crash every time after few minutes of processing. Without external HD, works fine. To access older projects and work on it,  the only way seems to be uninstal iMovie 10 and return to 9.

    I do not have exactly the same issue, but iMovie 10 seems buggy as all get out and the alledged bugs cause the system to hang something fierce. There are a number of ways to trigger a crash, apparently, but it always proceeds the same way.
    The screen - the display - goes all big pixelly and wonky. The computer becomes partially unresponsive. Controls in the apple menu at left end of menu bar work, so I can try some things. Relaunching finder does not help. Logging out does not help. Only shutdown and reboot clears the screen.
    But after a few minutes of trying things in iMovie 10, it crashes again. The crash goes the same way each time, but it seems to be triggered by different things.
    I have added screen shot - (hope I added a screen shot, anyway. ) Too bad.  I think I like iMovie 10.

  • I am attempting to update from iMovie 9 to iMovie 10. I have many movies with iMovie 9. Yet, on iMovie 10, when I press "update projects and events", it states "iMovie could not find any projects or events to update". What do I do?

    I am attempting to update from iMovie 9 to iMovie 10. I have many movies with iMovie 9. Yet, on iMovie 10, when I press "update projects and events", it states "iMovie could not find any projects or events to update". Somehow it doesnt' see all the movies I have on iMovie 9 library.  What do I do?

    I'm dealing with this same issue. At one point, it did recognize the Update function but then said it could not import the cache.mov and plist files which apparently means that imovie 10 can't see any of these past events. I can't figure it out.

  • Updated to iMovie version 10.0 Opened it. All my clips and projects were there. Then it crashed. Now no clips no projects. If I try and import them they are dimmed. If I try and 'update projects and events' a dialogue box says no files found.

    Have macbook pro 2012, running Maverick. Updated to iMovie version 10.0 Opened it. All my clips and projects were there. Then it crashed. Now no clips no projects. If I try and import them they are dimmed. If I try and 'update projects and events' a dialogue box says no files found.
    Have tried restarting computer, no joy. Help!!

    The reply from Nerval fixed it. It is very simple and it works.
    If you have a lot of Projects and  Events, leave the iMovie running for a long time. I had 160G and it took 4hrs. It is doing it in the background so don't shutdown too quick.
    Thanks Nerval.

  • HT6012 While trying to update projects and events from a previous version of iMovie to iMovie '11, someone forced iMovie to quit.  Now when I start iMovie '11 and try to update, a message says no projects or events can be found?  Any suggestions?

    While trying to update projects and events from a previous version of iMovie to iMovie '11, someone forced iMovie to quit.  Now when I start iMovie '11 and try to update, a message says no projects or events can be found?  I know there are previous projects and events, and they definitely have not been updated because they do not show up in my iMovie'11 library, events, or projects.  Any suggestions?

    I also have Jolly's problem. I found the iMovie 9.0.9 folder and tried to launch the older version of iMove. It would not launch. I removed all of the iMovie preferences from the Preferences folder, removed iMove 10 from the applications folder, and restarted my Mac. iMove 9.0.9 still won't launch and I can't access my videos created with the older version of iMovie. Is there a way to uninstall iMovie 10 and reinstall iMovie 9.0.9?
    I am running Yosemitie on a  iMac.

  • Is it possible to update projects and events after initial upgrade to 10.1.1 ?

    I just upgraded to FCPX 10.1.1 When I pressed the button ''UPDATE ALL'' one of my exterior drives was not connected. FCPX did not update projects and events on it. Is there a way to do it ?

    Hey Marc.
    You already said that.
    I asked you to post a screen shot of the locate dialog. It''s the one that appears after the one on the screeshot that Tom just posted.

  • HT5958 updated10.1.1 and just opened FC, potponed project & events updating (not realizing what that ment) and now can't seem to get back to that. The above thread say "choosing File Update Projects and Events" but I do not see that option in my menu ???

    I updated Final Cut and I postponed updating Projects and Events (not understanding that this mean I would have nothing in FC when it opened!). Now I can''t find how to go back so i can update those. The help thread says to use "file > Update Projects and Events" but that opinion is not in my menu ????? I also restarted my laptop but that didn't give me the option either....

    The easiest way to fix the hosts file is to restore it from a backup that predates the modification, or to copy the unmodified file from another Mac. If you can't do that, then do as below.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    open -e /etc/hosts
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    Paste into a Terminal window by pressing command-V. A TextEdit window should open. At the top of the window, you should see this:
    # Host Database
    # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
    # when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
    127.0.0.1                              localhost
    255.255.255.255          broadcasthost
    ::1                                        localhost
    Below that, you may see some other lines. The first 9 lines should be exactly as above, apart from differences in the blank space within lines. Otherwise you can't use this procedure—STOP and ask for guidance.
    If the contents of the TextEdit window are as described, close it, then enter the following command in the Terminal window in the same way as before (by copy and paste):
    sudo sed -i~ '10,$d' /etc/hosts
    You may be prompted for your login password, which won't be displayed when you type it. Type carefully and then press return. If you don’t have a login password, you’ll need to set one before you can run the command. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. Confirm. Quit Terminal.
    If you see a message that your username "is not in the sudoers file," then you're not logged in as an administrator. Log in as one and start over.
    That will fix the hosts file. There is now a copy of the old hosts file with the name "hosts~" in the same folder as "hosts". You can delete the copy if you wish. Don't delete the file named "hosts".

  • I have just updated to Final Cut Pro 10.1.4 - I have updated Projects and Events on my external hard drives (off the File menu). It's says under several project 'missing file' - but they were all there working fine before I updated.

    I have just updated to Final Cut Pro 10.1.4 - I have updated Projects and Events on my external hard drives (off the File menu). It's says under several projects 'missing file' - but they were all there working fine before I updated. I am working off 2 external drives - not sure if that would make a difference.

    After the update each seperate connected drive should now have a seperate Library.
    The older Projects and Events folders would have to be at the top level of those drives go be seen and updated.
    Were all the necessary Projects and Events in the corrrct place before updating?

  • Imovie Crashes when copying project/event to external

    If I try and copy the project/ and event from within Imovie, Imovie crashes. If I copy them separately to external, it works. I'd like to do it together, as this way is too slow! This only happens on some projects, other copy without a hitch.
    I will post the crash log next, if that will help.
    External is Mac OS extended (journaled), and is Apple Partition map, although same problem when formatted as GUID.

    I am clicking on the project I want to copy, and then dragging it to the ext. icon.
    A window appears, and asks if I want to copy the project, or the project and the event. I choose the latter.
    It seems to copy the project, and then crashes on the event. I can move them separately, without a hitch.

  • IMovie 10: Lost all projects and events when upgrading

    When I opened iMovie 10 the first time, it starting updating thumbnails. At some stage it got stuck on a certain event. After have seen the rainbow circle for a few hours and it was getting nowhere, I force quit the application. When I opened it the next time, both the 'events' folder and the 'project' folder are empty. I can see that all projects and events are still there in the finder folder, but I cannot import them into iMovie. Does anybody know what to do?

    The events and projects from older versions have to be updated. You should a dialog about this when you first launch the application.  You can also update from the File menu.

  • FCPX freezes when I try to update projects and events I created in the trial version.

    I just purchased FCPX after my month trial was expired.  When I open the full version, it promts me to update my projects and events, but as soon as I click ok, it freezes. I have to force quit.
    I can open Final Cut if I ignore the update, but I need to open my work from the trial.
    Is there a way to update them from within final cut? I tried just opening the projects from finder with final cut but that won't work either.

  • IMovie quits while copying projects and events to an external HD. Any ideas?

    Here is my problem: i was running out of disk space and wanted to move my projects and events to a new, external WD hard drive. I followed to normal procedure and moved the projects within iMovie 11 to the new (meanwhile connected and displayed) WD drive. I selected to copy both, projects and events to this drive and iMovie started copying. After a while the prog crashed. Does anyone have an idea what else I can do? Is this a bug of iMovie?

    I found the solution and just want to share with you...
    1. I closed iMovie
    2. I renamed my existing root folder projects and events by adding a '_' at the beginning of the folder name.

  • Errors Updating Projects and Events in 10.1

    I'm getting so many issues with this update.
    Right now, I'm trying to update my projects and events through a crazy work-around where I copied select Events and Projects into top level Final Cut Events and Final Cut Projects folders on my external hard drive. These files were already shifted into the automated "(hard drive) Old Final Cut Projects and Events" folder when I tried to Update All upon first updating to 10.1
    When I try to update I receive the following error messages:
    After these, I'm asked to Save or Trash. Then only 1 event is imported with all of the media missing.
    I'm at a loss. What can I do here?

    what file format is your external hard drive? i'm having similar issues and i believe it's because the external disks must be Mac OS Extended format as opposed to FAT32 or ExFAT.
    I've been using ExFAT all year and was just told that I should have never been able to use ExFAT in the first place.
