I have a client who's still running Mac OS 10.8 and iMovie '11. He has a large collection of iMovie Events, and a small list of iMovie Projects.
A few days ago, iMovie Events he has that were created in 2014 disappeared from the iMovie Event library. Because they are sorted by date and, because he didn't take note of the names, he's not sure what's missing; the 2014 part of the library just isn't visible anymore. Other events in other years are unaffected.
His Mac is backed up to a Time Machine drive and he wanted to restore the 'index' file - whatever the iMovie equivalent to iTunes' .XML library document is - from his backup to see if he can find those 2014 events. But - and here's the question - we can't find that file, we don't know what it is. We've talked to AppleCare and they won't tell us either; they suggest we upgrade to the latest iMovie but without finding those 2014 events first, we're afraid we'll never find them.
Looking for anyone who knows, in short, how iMovie '11 stores information about where Events and Projects are are located on disks - thanks in advance.
