    MBA mid-2013 1.3GHz i5, 4GB 1600MHz DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536MB; iPhone 4S
    iMovie completely frozen
    Cat stepped on video camera and disconnected it while iMovie was uploading several very short video clips. Now I can't close iMovie, can't restart, can't shut down, can't force quit, and iMovie is hanging out telling me it will take 3 hours to download video that isn't there. There's no progress on the blue progress bar either. The program is completely frozen - everything is ghosted; I can't even minimize the window. Am running Mountain Lion (which I am beginning to regret...). Anyone have a suggestion? I'm nervous about just uplugging the iMac, but I'm starting to think that's the only way?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Have you tried to force quit iMovie? Click on the Apple menu and select force quit. Does that work? If it doesn't, post back and we can try to force it to quit from the Activity Monitor.

    Force quit doesn't work either. Thanks for such a quick response!

    All I just did was click on the Activity Monitor (nothing else!) and iMovie quit - you're a genius!
    Problem solved
