so. upgraded our school to iMovie11.


suddenly, we can't use the software anymore, as it has decided that it will only accept a root folder location for its event storage.. Not a good idea with a school full of network homed kids, with a propensity to chop and change seats and machines which restore themselves to a virgin state.


so. is there a solution, or do we simply stop using iMovie? its pretty disappointing, and i can't see any reason for it. we are on a gigabit network, so data transfer speed is not an issue, as far as i can see.


i've tried setting up login hooks to create aliases to network home Movie folders, which results in iMovie crashing on an import. I've tried enabling the use of network volumes in the iMovie plist, and iMovie tells me that the network volumes have zero free space (we run quotas, and they are fine).


is this simply a case of a piece of sofware being utterly useless? is my only option to downgrade back to a functional version?
