Hi All,

I upgraded to iLife 11 today, and at first launch, iMovie updated some stuff and went on to Updating Aperture Videos Event (Scanning for new videos in your Aperture library...)

It's been doing so now for 4+ hours, and is getting nowhere!

Force quitting does not make a difference.

1. right-click on your aperture library. Open the package to view files.
2. I deleted iMovie-Thumbnails and iLifeShared
3. I started Imovie and it is now working normaly.

I had to also delete IlifeShared, I first started to delete only imovie-thumbnail but it was not working.

After, I tried to delete iLifeShare, since it contain an empty file called "ApertureDatabaseTimestamp"

After that, my imovie recontruct thumbnail and every thing is now working as before.

I did not repair my database, not yet.

It is bad to see that apple a billion of $ in their bank account and produce such a buggy software.

Good luck.
