Is it possible to edit a trailer in a project that has already been saved?  I can't see anyway of doing this in iMovie 11.

    Your Trailer should appear in the iMovie Projects pane on the left side of iMovie. Click on the project to open it and you can edit it there.

    OK In iMovie, you can copy and paste video clips from one project to another, but you cannot copy and paste the whole trailer with clips, titles, music, and everything.


    In Final Cut Pro X, you can copy everything from one project to another, but don't get too excited. Final Cut Pro X does not have trailers.


    What I would suggest is that you take your duplicated trailer with the changes you want. Use the SHARE menu to SHARE/EXPORT USING QUICKTIME. Choose Apple Intermediate Codec as your codec. Save it where you can find it.

    Now, in iMovie use FILE/IMPORT MOVIE... and navigate to the movie you just shared. It will be an MOV file. Import that into your event, and then you can use it in another project.
