You might want to consider using Keywords to tag particular clips.
This kind of metadata can be very powerful tool.
If you do a Google search on iMovie Keywords, you'll find a number of articles and video tuturials.
You should also be aware that iMovie should automatically create and even called iPhoto Videos so there shouldn't be a need to import them yourself.
Thank you Matt for your suggestion. Using Keywords works, but it is also time consuming event (if you have to go back and label/keyword each clip.
I think I have used incorrect terminology "Import" in my original question. All I did was is to turn iMovie on that then created an event called iPhoto Videos in Event Library. Unfortunatelly, this "iPhoto Videos" event containes about 100 clips that I tried to seperate by date - that is all I wanted. I have paper documentation for each date, so I really do not need keywords in this case. I can see the use keywords in other instances, lbut in my case it only creates more work.
In summary: Is there any other way I can see individual clips in Event library rather then keywording each clip and then use filter feature?
Is there any way I can see a list individual video clips in my iMovie Event Library? I have imported all my video clips (100+) from the iPhoto Library and the import treats it as one item in the Event Library. I have used "View" for the appropriate options - but it does not work. It still lookes like one item. I started to work on some movie projects, but it is a frustrating process because I have to go through all the clips to find the right one. Your help will be appreciated.
Let's back up.
Are you not seeing an iPhoto Videos in you Event Library?
It should be there by default. You don't have to create it.
Hi Matt, Yes I see iPhoto Videos in my Event Library, bus only as one item (with a subtitle of date range that covers all videos downloaded from my camera). I have downloaded all pics and videos after 2 months of travelling You should also know that I have used iMovie for the first time after this trip. So.....I have one item in my Event Library and about 100 clips that this one item covers. ??...Thanks you!
Sorry for taking so long to reply.
I came across this app today at the MAS.
I wonder if it could help you if used in conjunction with iMovie.
In the movie tab, it seems to recognize iPhoto events containing movie clips.
