    All right. I have iMovie 2.1.1 and I am trying to export audio files I have uploaded into the application.

    The problem is now, whenever I export ANY audio files iMovie suddenly quits on me and there is no successful export.

    It doesn't matter what mp3 I load in, iMovie quits on export. I have been using the same settings for months and this has never happened. I tried restarting the computer multiple times and nothing is working.

    Why is this happening, and how can this be fixed?

    have you tried deleting the app and/or the pref in your personal library folder? you can then just reinstall it from the apple mac os x site (or so i think)

    i hope this helps!

    iMovie now works.

    I appreciate the help, kishba.

    What I did was simply delete the iMovie preferences under users/(username)/Preferences/ . I did not need to reinstall the application.

    Just one question: Why would the preferences be the source of problems in certain applications, such as iMovie?

    Wierd...

    Often times the Prefs file can become damaged/corrupt and mess up the actual functioning of the app...it's a nice way to quickly refresh your settings to the factory defaults as well.
