I have run into this error message too many times and always when I have finished my best and want to finalize the project. Then I get this error message. Anyone else get The project could not be prepared for publishing because an error occurred. (-108)

There have been several threads over at the Apple forums on that error with several fixes that have worked (and not worked) in various scenarios.

Seems the first 2 are to make sure you have enough free memory (try the 'Free Memory' app available in the App Store - hit it twice, I see it often times will free up as much memory the 2nd time as it does the first) and to make sure you have enough contiguous free space (gained by defragging if necessary).

Check this thread out to see if any of the solutions will work for you - link.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Of course, you don't have to finalyze an iMovie Project. All that does is create a copy in every resolution that the Project will support, and make them available to other applications via the Media Browser. If you don't need/want this, then just Export as a Movie, or to Quicktime.
