    Moving raw footage to Event Library
    Hi, I'm trying to finish an IMovie video before we do an upgrade to Snow Leopard. At some point I had access to my Go Pro videos in my Event Library but now they're not there. I can see them in IPhoto but can't figure out how to move the videos to IMovie or change them so I can access them in my Event Library. When I'm in IMovie and bring up I Photo via the camera icon, I don't see the videos. I only use this program to make a video about once a year so I'm dangerous with this at best. I've tried dragging and dropping, cutting and pasting, etc. I'm sure I'm missing something simple and would appreciate some assistance.

    Thanks in advance,
    Troy in Far-Nor-Cal

    Not sure how much iMovie has changed from Leopard .v to the ML .v. I have iMovie 11, but wonder why you aren't using the Import feature under iMovie>File>Import>Movies ?? That seems to be the logical way of getting them in to your Library.
    Then all you need to do is navigate to the iPhoto Library in Pictures, OR Drag all the videos out of iPhoto into Movies then using the same Import function Navigate to Movies>The movies you just dragged and do it that way.
    Several options open to you.
    Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!
