It seems to be working every second try or so

iMovie first launch, it sets all parameters in the plist file, upon next opening the App crashes, next crash protection restores the plist file/resets itself.
So every two times seems to be correct.

Are there any files in the iMovie folder in:

/Library
~/Home/Library

I searched /Library but there was no iMovie folder. When I searched ~/Home/Library in 'Go To Folder' it said it didn't exist.

I am on an older System so they could be somewhere else like in /Library/ Application Support or ~/Home/Library/ Application Support.
If not look if there is a iMovie Caches in /library/Caches or ~/Home/Library/Caches.

If this fails too I am out of ideas, there could also be video components problems or other supporting files but then it gets hard.
reinstalling iMovie could solve this but I think it will be the same.

No worries, cheers. Also, would moving the file to the desktop disable any iMovie functions? I ask because I'm adding transitions to my clip but they're not working now. They are all in place but not showing when I play the video back. They're about 1.9 seconds each so they should be appearing.
