    Is there any way to batch export multiple projects in iMovie? I want to export 9 projects and each will take 30-60 minutes to export. Is there some external app or a setting I'm missing that can export all 9 projects without me having to be there in between each one?

    No, but if you have all the projects open and start exporting each one, you will be exporting them all at the same time. This will take VERY long though and I would suggest starting it when you are done for the night. Then it should be finishing up when you awake the next morning (if you sleep the average 7 hours plus two hours in the morning or between you going to bed and ending working on the computer for the night.) It will also leave all the resources to those exports, as long as you close all other applications open.

    You can't do anything in iMovie once you start exporting a project, so I would not be able to select another project to start exporting. Can't select multiple projects and hit export either(or at least I haven't found a way to do this).

    Sorry, I don't use iMovie anymore (I use FCP) so I thought you might be able to do that. I don't think there is a way to do an actual batch export in iMovie.
