I'm importing videos from an external HD into iMovie. The files are fairly large and the process takes upwards of an hour. When complete, the Event folder is always empty. I was selecting import using the copy feature, but when I tried the move feature it deleted it off of my external HD and is nowhere to be found on my Mac. Any advice is appreciated! Also, is there a way to import movies directly using an external HD?
When my external HD is plugged in it shows up in the list below my events, but when I click the expand arrow it doesn't show any footage.
