IMovie theater show or play.

I did not open iMovie in awhile.  But I have about 7 or 8 films I've done and have been recorded in the theatre of iMovie.  When I go to the tab 'Théâtre' in iMovie, it is empty.  The cloud at the top right contains the symbol bit not connected.  I don't know why. When I click it, the iCloud system preferences window opens.  The iCloud drive is checked, and in the Options button, the iMovie is checked.  But the symbol of the cloud in iMovie never changes.  As if it is not able to connect.

If I go into Finder / films, there is an icon of iMovie Theater (which resembles tickets).  If I get information on this icon, it is watch size is 2 GB, so there there movies... my iMovie is simply not connect to it.

I am connected to iCloud.

I have an internet connection.

iMovie is verified in iCloud drive.

I back up my laptop.

I spent a LOT of time to do these movies... and I just want to watch again.

Regardless of iCloud, you should see your movies in the THEATRE tab. First thing to try is to open iMovie, hold down the command and option and delete the preferences. See if that helps.

  • How to change the sequence of films in iMovie Theater

    By exporting iMovie projects in iMovie Theater, the sequence of films is determined by the time of download. How to change the sequence of films in iMovie Theater list?

    HI, breeaz,

    I have not found a way to change the sequence of films shown in the movie screen.

    If you access your movies in the Finder folder, then Ctrl-click on the folder of the theatre, you will find your movies to the poster

    in the alphabetical order in archival records.   I was not able to manually rearrange it.   They can be rearranged in some categories, through the view menu item at the top of the screen and the changes applied to the entire window, but it was not carrying at the display of iMovie.  In General, I'd like to make changes to the structure of iMovie in the finder.  It can cause serious problems.



  • an error message is displayed "an error prevents a slide show to play."

    an error message is displayed "an error prevents a slide show to play."
    What does that mean?


    Not sure, but more often means that there is a problem with a file system involved in the process. Try this:

    Click Start, type CMD. Right click on the entry that appears in the menu and choose "Run as Administrator". Click on continue in the UAC prompt. From the command line, type:


    and click to start. Let it run until the end (it may take some time), and then close the command prompt by typing "exit" and by striking and restart the system normally. See if that helps. Good luck, Rick Rogers, aka "Crazy" - Microsoft MVP Windows help -

  • 'master-slide show' continually play with without reload/restart on each subpage


    I wanted to create a 'master-slide show' on my masterpage who plays permanently on the 'sub-pages' (sorry, I don't know the English word). the problem is, that the slideshow always restart / reload when I jump to another secondary page. is it possible to just slide show to play continuously?

    Here the site:

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    By default it would be like each page will load in a browser with a different url, so on each loading slideshow will start again.

    Alternative to go with this goal would be to create a single page with anchor function site.

    Thank you


  • Trying a symbol of inside another symbol show() and play()

    Hello world!

    I'm running on a problem that is driving me crazy.

    I have the following case:

    -1 symbol (_Page_Background) containing an animation with the trigger next @0 s:

    Hide the symbol
    sym.getParentSymbol ().$("_Page_Background").hide ();

    Stop it

    SYM. Stop();

    -1 element (B_TOYS), inside a symbol (BUTTONS) with the trigger 'click' next:

    Showing the symbol _Page_Background

    sym.getComposition () .getStage ().getSymbol("_Page_Background").show ();

    Start playing it

    sym.getComposition () .getStage ().getSymbol("_Page_Background").play ("INTRO");

    The _Page_Background symbol starts hidden, as it should. But when I click on the button (B_TOYS), nothing happens. Although everything worked fine before I turned my buttons in symbols...
    I guess the problems lies with the function 'show()', because I have other buttons that works properly, but they don't show/hide anything, they just play()

    Am I missing something?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi, Dimitri.

    You're close enough.  The show() command requires the jQuery handle, so you should use:

    sym.getComposition () .getStage ().$("_Page_Background").show ();

    Hope that helps!


  • Why won't my slide show disc play on my DVD recorder?

    I created a photo slideshow in PSE6.0 and it burned on a CD - RW disc according to the instructions of the program.  When I put the disc in the DVD burner, it tells me that it cannot read the disc.  I called Panasonic, the manufacturer of the recorder.  They tell me that my disc must be "finalized" so that the recorder in order to treat it.  Does anyone know what finalize talks and how to do it?  Thank you.

    Larry and 99ion,

    I think that the process simpler for Larry try is a slight variation on the last paragraph of the post of 99ion.  If it is possible will depend on what variation of Windows is installed. And the process can be even simpler by using only Windows Movie Maker not - rather skip the output of the editor for PES Windows DVD maker slide show. Even if this isn't my normal process, I tried it on Vista Home Premium and it worked.


    1. If you have a burner, DVD, and Vista Home Premium (or another variant of Windows that supports the creation of a DVD-video), I think that the simplest action plan is to use Windows DVD Maker.

    -In the PSE slideshow Editor, make an output to the file, save it as a WMV file and choose the size setting of the DVD, and the United States on DVD NTSC, PAL if your country TV is PAL.

    - Then in the creation of Windows DVD, add this file WMV of PSE as a 'film' and follow the steps for making the playable DVD TV and burn it to a DVD cisd.

    2. If the program Windows DVD Maker is not available (as if the operating system is Windows XP), then you should check the other software as discussed 99ion.

    3 - Returning to the question of what no doubt spent in your first attempt with your CD - RW and the PSE slideshow Editor

    Because you used a CD - RW you most likely created the video CD format as output of the PSE slideshow Editor. You should check your manual for the Panasonic owner or other documentation both to check if it can read CD - RW discs (probably yes) and if it can read the video CD format (questionable because all TV DVD players or recorders can play this format).   However, I might save you the trouble of research on these issues BECAUSE this video CD format is if low resolution than most people find his poor and unacceptable display quality.

  • How can I change my clips still 406 in iMovie 10.1 to play longer

    I try to use iMovie 10.1 and cannot figure out how to do all the clips even longer. They are now less than a second. I changed the length in preferences, but that doesn't change anything. Help, please. I was very competent in IMOVIE 09...

    Changing preferences doesn't change the duration of still images alreadput in a project calendar.  What you can do is choose stills all affected in the timeline (click on it while pressing the command key) then clicking on information (little ' i' in a circle above Viewer), typing in the desired time and then pressing return.

  • iMovie not show iTunes in the drop-down list. IMovie 09 and El Capitan 10.11.5 running. This has happened only. Previously worked well.

    Previously, I was able to access the library iTunes in iMovie 09 without problem but now when I click on the icon of music in iMovie to access my music all I see are pre-loaded sound effects and not the content of my iTunes library. I'm under El Capitan 10.11.5.

    The latest version of iTunes 12.4.0 is not compatible with iMovie version 9 and will appear only in iMovie 10.1.x. You must export the music that you want to use in iMovie 9 and made drag in iMovie. Also, be aware that iMovie 9 is not compatible with El Capitan, so you could experience problems with frames display, black picture in the viewer etc.

  • some of my photos do not show to the iMovie media browser

    I'm working on a project in iMovie 10.1.2 using media of a 1.5 Photo album that I took on my iPhone 6plus.

    The media in iMovie browser shows all the photos that are in the album. All of the photos are visible on the Photo, but a lot are missing when displayed in the browser of iMovie media.

    Tried to restart it, nothing.

    Tried to mark the missing photos as Favorites in the Photo, and then click Favorites instead of all media to iMovie research field, nothing.

    The only thing is that when I tried to apply transitions all I received a message that "the clips do not have enough media for the transition." but I managed to manually insert all the transitions.

    The problem with transitions is because you didn't "handles" on some video clips. Clips video to have the alternative media outside the portion of the element that you use to build the transition. Not a problem with pictures. Just select a part of the clip leaving 1s on each side when you add to the timeline. This question is not related to your media missing in the photo album. As for the missing media is video or pictures, or both, that are not displayed? Using iCloud library in Photos app? The correct procedure is to select Photo library in the library list, and then select my albums in the menu drop-down. Is that what you did?

  • is it possible to organize videos Theater iMovie

    Videos in iMovie theater can be organized into groups, for example, the way apps on iPhone may come across other applications and it allows you to appoint a group to hold these applications?  Or maybe in some other way other than just in newest to oldest?

    You can group the videos in folders in the Finder, but even I know there is no way to do within the iMovie app.  I'm sure someone on this forum will correct me if I'm wrong.

  • LR 2.3 (x 64) slide show Impromptu only plays in the "second window".

    LR 2.3 (x 64) on Vista x 64.  Two LCDs - different resolutions ('Second window' = 1024 x 768 & "Main window" = 1920 x 1200).

    I can't get the 'impromptu slide show' to play in the 'main' window - he only plays in the second "window".

    I cannot encourage the slideshow to play in the main window?

    I'm not in the land of Monitor 2 for the moment (pending the new main monitor), but there is an option in the slideshow appearing If 2 monitors are attached, which allows you to select the one that the slide show is running on. Impromptu slideshow settings are based on the most recent settings in slideshow, so this may solve your problem. As I said, I have no way to check here what told the Committee.

  • BUG theatre iMovie does not work since the Sierra

    A clean installed on my iMac end 2013. Since iMovie Theater connecting to iCloud does not work. Spinning Beachball. iCloud in the iMovie Theater tab symbol is not white. His gray-wash with a wave in it. It's still a bug in connection to the cloud. Same thing happened with the update to El Capitan or was he Yosemite? Rest of the app works, but cannot connect to my films.

    IMovie last Version.

    in the hope of a quick update

    Best regards


    Maybe after the upgrade, you must re - connect to iCloud.   You could try to go to Apple system/preferences/iCloud and see.

    I don't have not yet upgraded to Sierra pending the resolution of any problem of bug.

    When a 3rd party application plays on my iPhone (Audible, Castro,...), my Apple Watch does not show the playback controls to it.

Volume controls work well and when I press the play button, the 3rd party app is dimmed and the iOS app music begins to play.
