    So i created a project on imovie that i planned on uploading to machinima. However i understand that you have to import your movies to machinima through quicktime. So i exported my movie to quicktime then tried to upload it. After i tried it said that it couldn't be uploaded because it exceeded the maximum size. The maximum is 100 MB and my project is 100.16 MB.

    So how can I lower the size of this to meet the requirement?

    are you using iMovie HD or iMovie '08.

    If HD export to quicktime and select expert settings, then select movie to quicktime movie and set the preset thingy to broadcast high or broadcast medium and the filesize shouldn't be too large

    If 08 click on share > export using quicktime
    select movie to quicktime movie and broadband high or medium

    after clicking on quicktime to quicktime movie, click on options, click on settings. Now you could lower the frame rate or the quality.
    There is no way to lower the filesize without loosing quality
