    Changing Event dates
    Hi, When you import a video that was recorded with the wrong date, how do you change the date in the Event library after? This is probably easy to do, but I just can't figure it out! Thanks in advance. Oliver

    Hi Oliver, It can be done... but at least with iMovie 08 it can't be done directly within iMovie AFAIK. Check out this article (if you are using iMovie 08): [url]http://www.macworld.com/article/136692/2008/11/changeimoviedates.html[/url] If you're using iMovie 09, then let me know :) Rounik

    Hi Oliver, Sorry for the delay. I had to take iLife 09 off my machine, so will hopefully get time to reinstall it in the next couple of weeks... In the meantime a colleague suggested the following: - Select the clip (or multiple clips) - Control click on a selected clip. Choose 'Adjust Clip Date and Time...' - Make the changes you need to. (New events will be created based on the dates you enter) I haven't been able to test this out, so do let me know if this works for you. Thanks Rounik

    Hi Rounik, It works!!! The dates automatically readjusts in the event library once the changes are made in the event window. Thanks again. Oliver PS: I enjoyed your TNT tutorial BTW!

    Hi Oliver, Great! Glad it works and that Apple have incorporated this feature into iMovie 09. Thanks for your kind words about my Randomizer cameo TNT :) Cheers Rounik
