iMovie Preferences & Directory Structure

  • General
    • Show advanced tools [No] -> Yes
  • Video
    • Import HD video as: [Large 960×540] -> Full – Original Size

No way I can see to define the iMovie work-area folder, where media gets imported to for example.  Maybe there’s no choice over this, which would be a shame (don’t want movies filling up my system drive).  In my case the iMovie work-area was:

  • /Users/davidesp/Movies
    • iMovie Events.localized/
      • New Event/
        • iMovie Data
        • iMovie Cache/
        • iMovie Thumbnails/
        • <a source media file>
    • iMovie Projects/
      • My First Project.rcproject
