How do I find out the file name of the original clip(s) so I can reconnect them (somehow?) to iMovie? I have no idea whether I moved them. It may be that I am not saving iMovie 11 files the way you need to, e.g., I just moved all the freakin' folders off my internal hard drive and onto an external. All my other Projects are working fine. It's only the one I actually need that says "Source clip is missing."


I could go find it in Time Machine if I knew what I was looking for... or Spotlight... or do some kind of grep in Terminal at the Unix level.


Not that it's relevant to this question, but I'm running Snow Leopard on an iMac with 2.66 gig Intel Core Duo processor and 4 gigs of RAM.
