Hi there,

I'd like to start off by saying I love iMovie '11. I've never really used iMovie up until now and I must say I'm really liking it so far. That being said, I have one annoying problem that I can't seem to solve.

I have many volumes on my Mac. The first being my 40GB OWC SSD that I use solely for Mac OS X and applications. The next is my 2TB RAID 0 volume that I use for video editing. I have a Blackmagic Intensity Pro capture card that captures uncompressed video. The files can get massive. I'm talking 1GB every 10 seconds of video. Anyway, when ever I import a movie into iMovie, for some reason it insists on copying the file to my 40GB SSD. This is so annoying because I want it to be copied to my RAID 0 volume as this is my video editing volume, and this is the volume with a huge amount of space.

So how do I force iMovie to copy the file to a specific volume? There must be a way, as it's absolutely impractical to work with video files that are on the same volume as the OS, especially when it's such a small volume.

Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from someone soon.
