How do I back up a movie from iphoto onto an external HD? Do I have to finalize it? Can I back up an event or project?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    In general, if your Event is stored in iPhoto, you need to back up your iPhoto Library. If you want an additional backup, you can export the original from iPhoto to a place you can find.


    To backup an iMovie Project, the simplest way is TIme Machine.


    You can also make a copy of your project using the COPY feature within iMovie. (This works for Events too if you store the Event in iMovie rather than in iPhoto.)

    See here for details.
