Video-editing project created with Apple iMovie; contains video and audio clips and a timeline for organizing the clips into a movie; may also include special effects, text overlays, and chapter markers for exporting to a DVD.

Because iMovie projects contain the actual video and audio clips used in composing the movie, they are often several gigabytes in size.

Earlier versions of iMovie saved project files with a .IMOVIEPROJECT extension. Later versions use the .RCPROJECT extension.

Important: Apple Final Cut Pro X can import iMovie projects.
