I know about AM's writtings and they are awesome. I know how to intentionally move stuff.
My question is what if I accidently change a song in itunes or move a clip to a different event. How can I repoint imovie to that song/clip and say, 'here it is' continue with the current editing features.
It seems to me that you can't do this on imovie? Which I find amazing. You could do this (repoint to the media if moved) on an old horrible Window's program called MS video editor from 2006!
... my goodness.... horrible cheap windows programs have this ability.
so, why not using the tool which offers the features YOU need?
people often don't realize two things:
• iMovie is part of iLife, a suite of programs which all relate on each other
• all this apps, iMovie included, are first of all data-bases. the 'Library'. which often is mentioned, doesn't exist! There's no hidden, gigantic folder on your harddrive 'Library/My Movies'! It is just an elaborated and fragile list or chart of links - when you damage that links, for sure the complexity of a project is kaputt.
to re-link things is no trivia task - if, IF you touch several data-bases with a single item! in my personal opinion, Apple lost track for quiet a while, allowing 'movies' to be stored in iPhoto (eh?), iMovie (yep) and iTunes (wot??) - plus, we store our stuff internal, external, iCloud, whatever.-
iM'S Big Brother; FCPX has a re-link feature - pros know, how to manage data-bases. Or not
For iLive, fingerscrossed, Sir Ive will reduce (internal, home made) complexity ... hopefully.
My personal reason, why we haven't heard a single word about iMovie/iLife13 yet ... and it's May!
