Currently Being ModeratedFeb 6, 2009 1:29 PM (in response to remobec)You must move the Event files from within iMovie to your external drive. If you move them in the Finder, your project will no longer work.
First, make sure your external drive is formatted as HFS+ (journalled), (or Mac OS (journalled) - same thing)
Second, in iMovie, select VIEW/EVENTS BY VOLUME
Third, in the EVENTS Source List, you should now see your hard drive. Drag and drop the Events onto the Drive Icon in the Events Source List.
Leave the Project Files where they are. They are not very big. If you upgrade to iMovie 09, you can move the Project files, too.iMac 24 2.8Ghz, iPhone, TV, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Parallels 4.0.3540 with XP, Panasonic HDC-SD5
