How to move iMovie projects and events to network-attached storage (NAS)

  1. Through Terminal, use the following command in order to overcome the limitation regarding clumsy symbolic links (by allowing network volumes):
    defaults write -app iMovie allowNV -bool true
    By using this command, you are able to create new projects and events in any connected network volume.
  2. To move a project, in the Project Library area, hold down the Command key as you drag a project to the icon of the device you want to move them to.
  3. To move an event, in the Event Library area, hold down the Command key as you drag an event to the icon of the device you want to move them to.

Note: If you do not hold down the Command key as you drag a project or event this will just be copied, instead of moved, to the device.
