What iMovie version do you have?

Quote:
To find out the version number of an application,

either switch to that application and go to the
Menu Bar > "Application Name" > About "Application Name" (Finder is used in below screenshot guide)

clicking above image will get a more detailed screenshot
or go to the Applications folder in Finder and use the Get Info window (CMD+I).
this screenshot uses System Preferences as example
And did you try the SHARE Menu Bar item, if it is there? There is an Export button.

You might even have luck with some of these items.

To edit your thread title to a descriptive one, to get a knowledgable audience and help making the thread easier to find for people looking for the same information, just click on the button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the button below your message.

No, it is not. There is still a "Save" and a "Save As" in most Mac OS X applications, and "Saving" means the document/project you work on and "save" is still an editable project/document within the application it was created in, while "exporting" means, that the document/project gets stored in a format, that is no longer editable by the source application and is meant for easier distribution.
