    Has anyone figured out where the MOV segment of the Live Photos synced via iCloud Photo Library are actually stored on a Mac?

    In Yosemite, they come in a JPEG and MOV pair, but in El Capitan they appear as a Live Photo. I prodded around the Photos Library bundle but I could only find the JPEGs.

    I'm interested in extracting a series of the MOV files to import into iMovie to make a movie made up of the Live Photos...

    Any help / suggestions / pointers most appreciated!

    Have you found an answer to this at all? I've been trying to find the MOV files all morning and can't figure it out either!

    EDIT: For anyone looking for an answer, I found them in *.photoslibrary/resources/modelresources/... in random folders in no particular order, so you have to hunt around for them. Why Apple would store them separate from the image file in the Masters folder, I have no idea.
