Forum Question: Changing date of a video clip in iMovie 08

Is there a way you can change the date of a video clip imported into iMovie ’08? The date in the video cam was 1 year off and now all the event clips are dated wrong and show up in the library in the wrong year. Any way to fix that?

    Not sure about iMovie 08, but in iMovie 09, yes. Just select the clip in the bottom part of iMovie and Ctrl+Click or Right+Click it. Then select “Adjust Clip Date and Time” and you can change it.

    Thanks for the quick reply Gary – unfortunately, it didn’t work in ’08. So I’ve taken the plunge and am ignoring the terrible reviews and upgrading to iLife ’09. After seeing your podcast on some editing, I think it will be just fine. Especially since I haven’t really started a project yet in 08. Love your podcasts and thanks again for the help.

      Terrible reviews? What terrible reviews? iLife 09 rocks. Especially iMovie — it is a great improvement over iMovie 08, adding tons of new features.
