    Just so others know. I opened iMovie the next day and no Events or Projects. I used a clean my mac application and uninstalled iMovie completely - then reinstalled and updated. The program worked well - and still is - with events and projects coming up regularly.

    iPhoto, however, took a hit with the reinstall of iMovie and I could not open it! A bubble came up saying I had to update iPhoto before it would open (I had updated it about a week ago) - so I updated and the same message came up - that I had to update - so I updated again. This time it worked and is still functioning, along with iMovie - but - my fingers are getting sore from being crossed.

    The Apple people need to work harder on quality control. I have continually used macs since 1983 and the quality a'int what it used to be. An example is iMovie 6 worked better than what is happening today!!

    My heart leapt when this massage came through thinking it was a resolve .Im aiming to to shake things up , Tried all the above and apple shops 2 of them cannot fix it doing the above. But this time Aperture Icon had appeared , but no movies . Yes you right . apple getting to big headed and forgetting quality. No complaint department or a place where you can get a ticket help unless it cost lots of money. macs going to lose out if they don't wake up.
    Im sick of this I movie 8 or 9 afraid to get 11 where did 10 go? still I have to sit and click and click and click for anything up to 45 min to clear before I can access anything in I movie . Why is it not being sorted or news that its being looked into. Hole reason I bought this was for these aps.

    Ok all . As i have some time on my hands to day, I have gone all over the net putting out this unsolved problem. As those who say they can fix it , it still come back.

    I Movie O8 09 and now i have leant I11 all still have issued of looking for none existent files on your mac. Files or projects that were removed as they were completed .? right?

    All forums seem to be up against a wall. So I phoned Mac AU and put an Official complaint. As I new the 35 $ charge would not resolve the problem . After spending days in the mac dealers.

    So keep fingers crossed .http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57 may be you can give them a call too
    in your country .

    I haven't had the problem reoccurring since the 9.02 upgrade last week. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Just make sure you are using iMovie 9.0.2. No need to delete the plist.

    I honestly think that some one has managed to build a bug to get at mac , or this 09 and 11 was built on a bad day Friday. Where are the builders of 09 and 11 . Not even a notification if we are getting the issue looked at.
    Well not sure if this is allowed . Do you have skype? As to what I did was on 11 after I upgraded. to much to type to explain. But found 11 not working in music and stills. I wrote to I tunes where I down loaded I movie 11 , they refunded and reported the matter. Just have to sit and wait and lose money. I would splash out on a I mac but fear the same trouble.
