    Hello

    Back the day when you wanted to archive iMovies, you simply copied the file. Now the iMovie file is worthless and only points to different areas where media is located. Is there an easy way to archive an imovie and all related media with a single click?

    Thanks

    Just a small tip: Where the iMovie "file" itself is stored, keep a folder called "sourcefiles" or similar. Whenever you want to import something, make your copies in that folder and then import from there. I actually keep my source folders on my Finder bar to make things easier.

    I think this is what you're after though.

    Yes this is kind of what I was looking for-- is there any software that can do this automatically?
