Make iMovie '08 find movies on other drives
Authored by: jasonh1234 on Feb 11, '08 10:33:12PM

Um.. Call me a newb, but how does one replace the alias with a UNIX soft link (ln -s)?

I also have no idea what this means or how to do it. Could someone explain?

For "CLI-impaired" ones :)

For "CLI-impaired" ones :), here 's the procedure :
  • Open Terminal;
  • Type cd ~/Movies and the enter key; this will teleport you to your Movies folder.
  • Now type ln -s and a space;
  • from Finder, drag the icon of your movie project file to your Terminal window; this will type for you the full path to your project file (easier than typing it by hand);
  • hit enter: voilà! your soft link is ready.

  • Hope this helps.
