iMovie '11

    Yes. If iMovie does not see your card automatically, click FILE/IMPORT FROM CAMERA.

    See this post for why the files get bigger.


    Your iMovie Project has the name you give it and the extension .rcproject.

    It contains a small text file in hexadecimal that contains the paths and the file names of the clips you used from your event (along with the in and out points), the titles, the transitions, the paths to any music and photos, etc.

    Once you Finalize, iMovie makes a finished movie in all available sizes and stores that in the .rcproject as well. You do not have to finalize. You can just use the Share menu and create the sizes you want. If you use the Share Menu and choose Media Browser that is the same thing as Finalize but you do not have to make all sizes. If you share to iTunes, it makes a Media Browser copy as well.


    The .rcproject file is really a package with hidden folders. If you right click on the rcproject file, you can choose Show Package Contents. You will see any finalized movies in the Movies folder.
