iMovie folders when doing a wipe/clean install

Recommended Posts



It's been a few years since I did this but i'm planning on a clean install of 10.9.


My question is about iMovie.


I have a clone of my computer using superduper.


After the new install of 10.9, can i just copy the 5 iMovie folders that are automatically placed in my Movies folder (on the old installation) into the same position on the new installation and then open iMovie? Will iMovie find these folders?


I was planning on installing 10.9, installing my current iMovie from the iLife disk and then upgrading to the new version of iMovie.


I know you can move the source files from within iMovie itself but i'm more interested in the other bits (Projects/Sharing etc).


Any thoughts?


iPhoto/iTunes are easier to move about but i've not heard/seen anything regarding moving iMovie files.

As far as I know you can. Just do it before you open it for the first time.
