I just started using iMovie for first time today. Never really had a reason to before. I managed to figure out most of what I want to do but I'm not clear on how best to arrange files etc for a good work flow. At the moment all my photos and videos are automatically uploaded to iPhoto, and today I have using my iPhoto library in iMovie. But it seems clunky. I have to first create an empty iMovie Event, then copy one by one clips from iPhoto into the event. I'm actually not sure if it copies these files be default or not ???? (I think not??). Anyhow then after creating my movie, I have the original clips in my iPhoto and a finished movie file in the Movies folder. I then also have an event in iMovie that I no longer need as intermediary. But if I delete the Event it gives me warning I am deleting last copies of the original clip files from my camera. Anyhow - this is all a little confusing. I'm wondering what other people do. What is the most efficient workflow to manage all this. i.e. connect camera - photos to iPhoto, vids to iMovie and then to create events of relevant vids ? Any experts out there ? My current method is clunky as hell I'm sure there are better ways!
