    What iMovie version do you have?

    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.

    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.
