    I've been having this problem with iMovie for a few months now, all of a sudden something has happened to my iMovie. It seems to happen only when I insert Picture In Picture option(s) in a slideshow. When exporting the completed Project to Quicktime it crashes. This also happens if I try to Finalize the Project or Share the Project via Vimeo or YouTube. There are a lot of folks out there experiencing this problem, some are finding solutions - I'm not.

    I am pleased to report I've FINALLY FOUND A SOLUTION!!!!!!!!   I upgraded my OSX from Lion to Mountain Lion and my iMovie no longer crashes when I try exporting a completed Project to a Quicktime .mov file. I discovered a blogger who referred to Apple issuing an update for Lion to solve a crashing problem with iMovie earlier this year. So, I dropped the $20 for the upgrade and now am a very happy camper!!
