Latest version of imovie and OS on imac. Ques involves where files are kept, and if they’re duplicative. I like idea of having videos & photos together in Photos Library.
I take video clips, and they automatically go in Photos. Fine. I imported clips into iMovie, as a Project, to edit. When done, I tried “Copy to Library” and “Move to Library,” but both grayed out. I then chose “Share to file,” chose my user folder, and the “Pictures” folder, but “Photos Library” was grayed out. So, I saved it to Pictures folder. I then dragged it to the Photos app icon in the dock, and it finally copied into Photos. It still appears in the “Pictures” folder in my user folder.
1) It appears that I have this new edited video in 3 places: in”Projects” in iMovie, in “Pictures” folder, and in Photos. Is it really in 3 places? Can I delete some to save space?
2) In Photos app, I now have individual clips I started with, plus new edited video I made in iMovie. Can I delete the clips? thanks much!
