To see changes in file size, you'll have to Relaunch the Finder.
Command+Option+EscapeI try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

i even restarted my computer. it doesnt make a difference. if i go into the clips in the timeline and grap and drag to the right, the footage is still there. not the deleted clips, but the clip i took it from. it doesnt really split the clips at all. it only kind of duplicates it from where i want to split.

first question, you did empty the trash within the iMovie appilcation. Second it depends on the size of the clip you are trashing. If you are trashing a clip that is several seconds long, then I believe that you will not see a change. Due the was data is write to the disk. If you are deleting clip of several minutes, then you should see a change. But in some case the data file will have to be rewritten to retrieve the free up space. This is a normal situation with databases.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

ok. thanks to one of the users i found out what the problem is (thanks aptmunich): imovie doesnt allow to trash parts of clips. even when splitted, the split part ll still stay in the other clip. the only possibility is to export it. now my new question: which are the best settings to export from imovie in highest quality (in europe)?
thanks for any help on that.
