- iMovie 4.0.1's "QT Full Quality DV" preset exports PAL-DVCPRO instead of PAL-DV simple fix. Export/share manually.
- Apple has confirmed that the iSight will lock up the video recording after about a minute of recording in iMovie. No resolution currently exists.
- iMovie will no longer export once Final Cut HD is installed. Apple knows it is an issue.
- Vertical lines in still images.
- If you versions of iLife are not in sync, you will run into unexplained issues. Make sure all your applications are up to date.
- White Screen after applying effects - There's a bug where the color of your previously-made title is applied to subsequent special-effect clips. The solution is to quit iMovie, open the project again, remove the effect from the clip, and re-apply the effect.
- Corrupting the first clip in a project, usually when playing with titles and/or working with imported photos elsewhere in the project. I now keep a 10 second black still clip (AKA slug) as the first clip, which can be replaced when corrupted.
- Opening an iMovie2/3 project and clicking on a title gives you unexpectedly quit. It will help to run Cache Out X and restart prior to opening the old project.
- Volume bug appears to occur when we turn down the iMovie volume before rendering a clip. When we set it to full volume, the rendered volume is fine. So render the clip THEN adjust the volume. Apples Solution looks amazingly the same.
- Locked folders fix
- Create a new folder anywhere OTHER THAN inside the old project folder. Name the new folder "Replacement" or something.
- Create a new folder inside the Replacement folder. Name it "Media".
- Open the Media folder of the iMovie project. Choose Edit>Select All.
- Option-drag all the selected files (hold Option key down while dragging) to the new Media folder. That creates a duplicate of the files instead of moving them. (I'm assuming there is sufficient disk space to duplicate them. If not, simply drag them instead of Option-dragging.)
- Option-drag the files inside the iMovie project folder to the Replacement folder.
You now have a new project folder named Replacement that contains all the files from the original project. Double-click the project file inside Replacement. If the project opens successfully, Quit iMovie, rename Replacement and you're done.
If it doesn't open successfully, trash the project.mov file that's inside Replacement and try again. - Karl Petersen
