    How can i revisit and rework a past project?
    I made a movie in iMovie and burned it to a DVD. But I want to revisit and rework it, making changes. I cannot find under File anything that resembles opening an existing project. It is long, (33 minutes) with narration and music and cannot afford the time to redo the entire project again.

    How can I resurrect the project to accomplish a redo?

    You can re-import the DVD using Handbrake to turn it back into editable format (DV is recommended if you want to preserve the quality).

    Ah, but I gave the DVD to a friend who hasn't returned it....yet. However, the "project" remains listed in my documents...so how do I get that project back into iMovie for more editing? The project was my first and it kept showing back in iMovie each time I opened iMovie when I was first working on it. After making the first DVD from that project, I started on a second unrelated project, but now can't bring back the first project...that is what I am after...how do I do it?

    How can one use Handbrake to convert to DV format?

    This is from the Handbrake website:
    ...we recommend use of another tool ( MPEG Streamclip is one solution) to convert your DVD to a less-lossy intermediate format called DV, which will import into iMovie but result in far less generational loss (thus improving the quality of the final output). There are no plans to introduce DV output in HandBrake.
