i have Cool Project on Computer #1.


Cool Project is made up of clips from a file called "raw footage."


that same "raw footage" file lives on a hard drive called Wench.


i copied the "Cool Project.rcproject" file (but not the related Events folder) onto Wench hard drive.

i put it in the "iMovie Projects" folder. in the related "iMovie Events" folder is that same batch of raw footage, with the same name as what i used in Computer #1.


when i double-click on the Cool Project file on Computer #2, it flashes like it's opening the file. iMovie itself opens. but Cool Project does not show up under the Projects menu or anywhere else. there's nowhere to grab it from the "import" menu, either.
