This seems crazy, are Aperture users relegated to a subpar iMovie experience. Isn't Aperture supposed to be the more professinoal application? It's crazy to have to scroll through a hundered videos to find the one you want.
No organization by name and year and or month. Just a clump of videos in chronological order with the most recent at the bottom.
I totally agree and I am also having issues because of this.
I have lots of mini-video clips (of my son mainly) that get organised in Aperture along with the photos that I take at the same event.
When I want to edit any Aperture videos using iMovie and select the "Aperture Videos" filter I get hundreds of videos and the video list is so slow that it is actually TOTALLY UNUSABLE.
I assume that if I could select a specific Aperture Project within iMovie that the list would be greatly filtered (to no more than a small handful of video clips) and the usability issue ought to be totally fixed. It ought to also make finding my video clips quicker too, given I should know where my video clips are (i.e. find it quickly in an Aperture Project, rather than by navigating an endless list of videos as currently).
Apple: please could you implement this? How difficult would it be to implement a filter within iMovie that uses the existing organisational structure of Aperture (or iPhoto)? As a developer, my rough guess would be 2-5 days (including analysis and testing). It's only adding some extra filtering... pretty please!!!
