Hi. I would like to change the location where iMovie looks for a certain Event.


Originally, the Project was located on an external hard drive. It wouldn't open, so I copied it over to my internal hard drive on my computer. I also copied the related Event folder from the external hard drive and put it inside my iMovie Events folder on my computer.


Now the Project opens. It looks for the Event on the external hard drive, and loads it up.


For various reasons (see below), I would like to tell iMovie, "Hey, look for this Event here on my computer, instead of the external hard drive." Can this be done?


I cannot, incidentally, go into iMovie and export anything (see below), so if that is the solution, it isn't going to work for me.


I'm on iMovie '11 9.0.4.

I'm running OS X 10.6.8 / Snow Leopard

[I have a much bigger problem that is ridiculous, but I'm desperately trying to do this just in case it might help. The bigger problem has been asked about in many places on Apple support community, on blogs, and around the Internet, but is basically a terrible bug that isn't solvable for many people, while others try all kinds of bizarre tricks to attempt to get it to work (some succeed). It involves iMovie saying it doesn't have enough memory to export/share your project, even if you have loads of RAM and available hard drive space.]
