i have imovie'11 version 9.0.8

want to upload about 40 vidio clips to make a short film


I click on file > import > movies

then when i have found the folder I save to mactintosh hd and add to existing event which is new event

I have tried checking the box to optimise video to Large - 960 x 540 and also tried unchecking this box

and I select copy files


after doing this I have left for at least 5 hours (both times, optimising and not) but nothing has happended and I have had to force quit imovie


the clips I am using are MPEG movie, dimentions 720 x 576
