Hi

I currently run iMovie 9 - I have not moved to the new iMovie version and instead want to move to Premier Elements

 

I have over a thousand unedited movie clips that have been imported into iMovie - saved within a file structure under the folder "iMovie Events". These are the raw files that have been imported from my camera to imovie on the Mac.

 

Is there a way to import these unedited "events" / "clips" into Premier Elements so I can build my movies from them in PE?

 

Here is what the event clips look lie within the Finder file structure on the mac within iMovie..

You should be able to import the .mov files into Premiere Elements 2020 and edit them.

I don't own a Mac and have not used iMovie.   

Premiere Elements does not have files "in" it.  It references video files where they are.  The companion Organize programs is the same.  I see no reason that you can't use Premiere Elements.     

An article I found describes the process.    https://classroom.synonym.com/convert-imovie-premiere-elements-15295.html

Premiere Elements is available as a free trial.  I strongly reccomend you take advantage of the trial before you spend your money!
