Newbie here - I tried importing the same one minute clip at the two different available sizes (Large & Full) and want to compare the file sizes. Can't figure how to. I can 'get info" AFTER they've been exported to various sizes, but I'm curious about the size of the 'raw' imported footage.

The actual movie files are in your
'~/username/Movies/iMovie Events' folder. You could just go there and check them out in the Finder. The names are long and obtuse, but they do contain the date and time I believe. Just do a get info on those. You should be able to quick look them to verify they are the clips you were interested in.

I'm not a Mac. I'm not a PC. I'm a person.
