  Movies Made Easy in iPhoto 5
Subject:   all good information but what about exporting movies?

But iPhoto 5 has almost no ability to export movies! All I can find is burn to CD and use Homepage which forces you online back to your .Mac account using only Apple's interface. I do use my .Mac account but don't particularly like the Apple pages. Instead I export to web and edit alittle past that - though BetterHTMLExport can handle most of that. But not the movies!!

Any ideas?

    In the past, I've had to resort to iViewMediaPro in order to publish a page with movies and photos. Unfortunately, it now costs lots of $$, but if you can get an earlier version like 1.5, it's pretty useful.

    Also, putting it into another library management tool often requires duplication of the files, which can take up a lot of space unfortunately.

    I guess someone needs to write a hack to allow movies to allow the general export menu, and to ensure that these movies are listed.

    Well, not quite sure I get your drift here.

    If you build the movie the way I described in the article, and saved it to your desktop, then it's already "exported." All you have to do then is put it on your server, drop it on to a CD, or add it to an iDVD project.

    iPhoto, at this stage, enables you to catalog, sort, rate, etc. But QuickTime Pro still does all the heavy lifting for editing, encoding, etc.
