    Hi all
    There is a thing, I have been unable to change in iMovie. How do I change the standard-folder, iMovie imports files to?

    Right now, everything is stored within users/film. And my HD is quickly filling up.

    I want to:
    1: Change the standard import folder to an external HD.
    2: Move existing projects and files to an external HD.

    Can both things be done?

    When you import, you get the option where to import to. Just choose an external drive.

    The external drive icon should appear in the Project and Event Libraries.

    Drag a Project onto the icon to move it to the external drive. You will be asked if you want to move the associated Events for that Project. Click Yes or No as required.
