Hi everyone,


I have a (iMac 27-inch mid 2011) with 10.7.5. When I am working with a project in iMovie and in this project I insert transitions (effects into photos), I have a problem when I make export (share) of the project: at 4 minutes the iMovie makes freeze and it doesn't response. If I delete the transitions then the process works fine. The hard drive is empty (more that 800Gb empty)



I updated all the apps, I deleted (with AppCleaner) the iMovie and reinstalled it (with Mac App Store) but nothing.



There is some option like iPhoto to rebuild database with CMD + ALT or something?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    If you right click on your Event name (or right-click on one of the clips within the event), does it give you the option to "Optimize Media"?  If so, optimizing would probably help this.


    If not, open one of your event clips in QuickTIme Player and then click COmmand-I to open the Inspector. Tell us what is listed next to Format:

    Also tell us the dimensions of the clip.

    Sorry I have no experience with AppCleaner. If you took it to a Genius Bar, they would probably have you reinstall OSX and then reinstall iMovie, and avoid App Cleaner.


    If you wish to try trashing the PLIST, see this tip.
