Currently Being ModeratedOct 1, 2008 9:43 PM (in response to Scott A Woodward)I should clarify (if it wasn't clear) that I am referring to the .rcproject file that won't open in iMovie anymore, although it used to open fine in iMovie... Thank you for any help that can be provided. ScottMacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 1, 2008 9:46 PM (in response to Scott A Woodward)Make sure the iMovie Project file is located in <user>/Movies/iMovie Projects/
iMovie will not recognize your file as a Project unless it is there.
Also Make sure that the Event Files are back in the same place they were before - probably <user>/Movies/iMovie Events/
If that does not work, post back and there are some more steps we could take.iMac 24 2.8Ghz, iPhone, ATV, Mac OS X (10.5.3), Parallels 5584 with XP, Panasonic HDC-SD5

Thank you very much -- moving the .rcproject file to user>/Movies/iMovie Projects/ fixed my problem and I can now play my slideshow movie. I really appreciate the assistance. One more (small) thing: it seems to me that the quality of the movie has been somewhat compromised, in that I recall the images looking sharper and clearer before. This could be my mind playing tricks on me, but I am just wondering if this is possible... Or am I imagining this?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

If you were using photos from iPhoto or Aperture, it is also important that they be in the exact same place that they were before.
An RCPROJECT file does not contain any photos or video. It contains links pointing to the in and out points of your EVENT files (which contain the real video) and links to iPhoto (where the physical photos are.)iMac 24 2.8Ghz, iPhone, ATV, Mac OS X (10.5.3), Parallels 5584 with XP, Panasonic HDC-SD5
