Thank you

    What old ones are gone. As far as I know, there never were any iMovie Themes before version 6. Are you sure you are not thinking of iDVD Themes?

    Cheers,

    And to answer your question in another way, the Themes are located here:
    Your Disk/Library/Application Support/iMovie/Themes/

    David, I stand corrected...it must have been IDVD or IPHOTO. Do you know of anyway to import any of the themes from IDVD, so I can save a short movie to quicktime?

    Thanks...

    The iDVD Themes are not compatible with iMovie Themes. What exactly are you trying to do?

    Trying to create a short quicktime movie for a web page, I am learning flash but thought I could find a short cut...:)

    Oh well...guess I have to do some reading. Thanks

    Hello,

    I have imovie 6. For some reason, I only have the "Travel" themes. Where are the others? When I go to MyDisk/Library/App Support/ there is no imovie folder. When I search for it, I get the imovie themes installation pkg for Tiger and it will not install. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi Stephanie:

    First of all, are you sure you are looking in the correct directory for the theme files.

    They are in:
    Your DISK Name(Macintosh HD, if you have not renamed it)/Library/Application Support/iMovie
    and NOT in your NAME/Library/Application Support/ (where there is indeed, no iMovie Folder)

    If they are not there, then something is wrong and even if they are, you may have to re-install iMovie and the themes.

    Look in your DISK/Library/Receipts/ folder.
    Do you see a file named "iMovieThemes_Tiger.pkg"?
    This file is placed here after the installation of software.

    If you see this file here, delete it, and the following files:
    iMovie.pkg
    iMovie_601.pkg ( if you have updated to IM 6.0.1)

    Then re-install your iMovie 6 application from your install dvd.
    Don't forget to upgrade to IM 6.0.1 afterwards. This should install the themes along with the iMovie application.

    You may have to do a custom installation to just do iMovie.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    David

    Hello,

    I located the Imoviepkg, _601pkg, and Tiger files, deleted them, and then did a custom reinstall, updated to IM6.0.1. I still only have the "Travel" themes - Travel, Reflection White, Reflection Black, Pass through and Road Trip.

    That's it. No others. It is the weirdest thing. I am stuck. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks so much!

    I do believe that is all of them. I don't have any more.

    In your previous post, you said you only had the "Travel" theme. The other themes, while "travelish" are not THE "Travel" theme.

    Sorry for suggesting you go through all that.

    Cheers,
    David

    I went to the Mac store, and they suggested that I delete my imovie .plist. I did. That did not work either. I unfortunatly will have to haul it in to the store. boo.

    Thanks for the info though.
