When I download photos/movies from devies to iPhoto it puts them into an Event.

 

Is there a quick way to identifying the movies so that I can remove them from the Event and create a new Event? (as I store my movie files separately to my photos).

 

With devices, such as my camera, where photos are named differently to movies, I can sort the Event by name and then easily cut and paste but Apple devices tend to use the same sequential naming convention, so I can't easily separate them.  I can see the movies by creating a smart album but that doesn't apply me to cut them from the Event itself.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thank you.

I believe there is a bug in the current version that fails to tag Movies automatically on import. So, there's no "movie" (or 'video") keyword to be found.

 

Workaround:

 

Now that you have all the movies, flag them and then go Events -> New Event from Flagged Photos
