Error -50 paramErr Error in user parameter list
Can there be any external hard disks - if so How is/are it/they formatted ? Must be Mac OS Extended (hfs) if used for Video.
UNIX/DOS/FAT32/Mac OS Exchange - works for most but not for VIDEO.
What this means in Your situation is above me.
• free space on internal boot hard disk? How much ?
• streamingDV, AIC etc. (not .avi, .mp4, .m4v, .wmv etc as they are containers not codecs)
• in what format ? .jpg, .bmp, .tif, else ?
• from where/what format ? iTunes, .avi, .mp3, .aiff, else ?
The "com.apple.iMovie.plist" file
Many users has not observed that there are TWO libraries.
• Library - at root level
• Library - in user/account folder - THIS IS THE ONE to look into

I fixed the problem.. but it was very, very strange. I had a very long section for credits and set the line spacing to 1.0.. for some reason this caused it. I removed it, and it worked fine. I put it back, and I couldn't preview or play the video.
I don't know why that could cause that big of a problem, but it did..
You need more free space on your hard drive.
After phone support from apple I ended up creating a new project and adding all 117 clips back in individually till I found out what clips flagged and would not allow me to export. I had 3 I deleted and replaced and everything works now 1hr after tedious work....
Where do Your material come from
• External hard disk
And all are connected so that iMovie can find it ?
Yours Bengt W
Many thanks both.
To AppleMan 1958 : 9'30". Furthermore, time of conversion was veeeeeery long (around 3hrs)
To Bengt : wow ! Let me investigate .... am not a specialist.
All movies (.mov) are in my external disk. Imported there from my movie camera. Then simply import into iMovie + .jpg pics + texts + usual transitions.
But I'll revert later because I tried this AM with a 1' short one, and it works fine. Maybe because I repaired authorisations y'day PM after a complete uptodating.
Tks all & revert
OK I think I found where the problem is.
I downloaded BlueStack some days ago, without any advise that it coudn't run with leopard. In My activity report, I've this type of messages :
12.05.13 08:00:36 com.apple.launchd (com.BlueStacks.AppPlayer.LogRotator) Exited abnormally: Trace/BPT trap
Now, I tried vainly to uninstall it. Don't find any BlueSatcks anywhere.
Also find those sort of messages about iMovie :
12.05.13 08:03:51 [0x0-0x18018].com.apple.iMovie7 Unable to find 3ivx library!
12.05.13 08:13:27 iMovie Error loading /Users/charlesvidal/Library/QuickTime/
Don't know where to go. Tried to export a 2' compilation from iMovie. Original time scheduled 50', then error=-50 again after 1/2 hour.
Tks for help.
Well ... I found another "BlueStack" in my library which I thrown in Basket and empty it.
Seems it's working again (exported my usual video - .mov + .jpg) 2'14". Seems all excepted time of exporting very long (about 1h)
Will see later with longer vidéos.
Anyway, thanks all for helps.
