Chapter 13. Camcorder Meets Mac > Converting Older Projects

13.6. Converting Older Projects

When you open a project created by an older version of the program, iMovie asks permission to update its file format into the iMovie HD format. If you want to edit the project in iMovie HD, you have no choice; you must click OK. Doing so creates a new project file, and preserves a copy of the original with the filename suffix ".iMovie2Project" (see Figure 13-6, bottom).

Now, even if you click OK, your old iMovie project folder doesn't get turned into the new-style, single-icon project file as described earlier. Instead, iMovie HD leaves you with the original project folder, with a few new files and folders deposited there for safety. (See Figure 13-6 for an illustration.)
