    I'm not sure why, but now iMovie '11 no longer finds the videos that i have in iPhoto '11. It just says "No video clips match the current selection. Choose a different option from the Show pop-up menu, below." Is anyone else having this problem? Mine is a referenced library by the way

    Yes - just started for me today when I opened iMovie. iPhoto videos were there last time. This could possibly be the first time I've tried it since the update to 10.7.3

    There is a related discussion in the Apple forums - no help from there. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2622147

    iMovie started asking the "generate thumbnails" question again at launch. I'm not sure what I did to fix it. I repaired permissions on the disk, rebuilt the iPhoto library several times with different options. Rebooted. Nothing made any difference. Then today, I sync'd my phone with a new video on it, launched iMovie, and it started seeing iPhoto videos again.

    I don't know what made it quit, nor what made it start again. There are several discussions about this in the apple forums - they all have a bunch of random suggestions. I don't think anyone has figured it out yet.
