I just finished a REALLY important project for school on iMovie and I exported it using Quicktime to see how large the file would be (it needed to be under 20KB) and when I went back to make a few edits my file was choppy so I quit and restarted iMovie. When it reopened again my project was gone! And now I cannot find it! Ack! Help! This is three weeks worth of work and I have no idea how to find/retrieve it! PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

try looking in ~/Movies/iMovie Projects ... that is the default location for iMovie projects assuming you saved your work regularly

also worth a shot looking in the trash

and just out of curiosity, you were able to make a movie under 20KB? that's smaller then a photo

lol Really wasn't trying to beat him up . Just believe no one would work on something that important for 3 weeks without a back up , so really was trying to make a good suggestion . Now if there is no back-up then.....


and thanx for the rep before !
