How to Use Project Folders

Having all of your projects at your fingertips is a great feature in iMovie. But what do you do when your projects start to pile up?

Apple was a step ahead on this one. iMovie '09 provides folders to organize your projects. These are just like the album folders in iPhoto or the playlist folders in iTunes. You can find them up in the File menu.

You can rename a folder by double-clicking on it.

The feature has several uses. It is a nice way to organize a group of projects I plan to add to a single DVD. As an added bonus, the Media Browser in other iApps will show the same folder structure that you set up in iMovie. I also use this feature to archive old projects. Hats off to Apple. This is a nice touch.
