I have had all sorts of problems with iMovie crashing while attempting to make my movie, numerous different times, on numerous different projects, etc.  I've gained lots of insite from this forum on how to do what I'm trying to do, but I'd like to start with a clean iMovie. 


I would like to uninstall iMovie and reinstall it, without losing any of my video clips, of course.  I have not been able to find out how to do this.  Can anyone tell me how to do this?  Do I drag iMovie to the trash, delete the 2 library files, and then install again from the app store?


If there are instructions somewhere, please point me to them.



iMovie '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
