I just installed Aperture 3. When I launch iMovie, it automatically scans Aperture library for movies and crashes every time. Do i need to remove the movies from Aperture ? Help, please ? I want to be able to use both applications.

    David, It sounds like there is a certain video clip that is the problem. What format of videos did you have in your library? Were you using latest sw -- iMovie 8.0.5 and 10.6.2?

    I am interested in using Aperature 3 to manage my videos, to later use in iMovie. Please update! Is this a reasonable thing to do?

    I have a slightly different problem.
    I have videos shot with my Nikon D90 in Aperture but the "Aperture videos" section in iMovie remains empty.
    I could see them in iMovie when they were in my iPhoto library.
    Is there any solution ?

    yes.

    i've been able to point aperture 3 to all the videos (many, many, gigabytes worth of dvc pro hd & dv ntsc) on the hard drives fine, tag them, etc. no problem there.

    Same problem here. Can't open iMovie. iMovie (latest version) crashes scanning Aperture 3.0.1 videos at launch. I know I have many MPEG1 muxed clips in Aperture that it doesn't support (ridiculous since iPhoto handles them fine), so maybe that's the hang up.

    Looks like I'm sticking with iPhoto until Aperture 3.x is ready for prime time. Very dissappointed.

    Aperture is sold as being an iPhoto + application.
    Many of us were storing for years their family memories (photos and videos) in iPhoto and now comes Apple and develops a product, which according to its promises should be a huge improvement to iPhoto but on the other hand destroys part of our memories by not supporting for example MPEG1 muxed. It is simply unethical and immoral that a serious company such as Apple (and I really love you guys for what you do) behaves in such a way. So, can't you take the code out of iPhoto and implant that back in aperture?
    Thanks
