Organize Events in the Event Library

In the Event Library, you can choose to view your Events in a number of ways, including by the date when they were recorded and the disk they’re stored on.

To reorganize the Event Library:

  1. If you don’t see the Event Library, click the Event Library button.

  2. Do any of the following:

    • To view Events by the hard disk where they’re stored, choose View > Group Events By Disk, or click the Hard Disk button in the upper-right corner of the Event Library.

      The View menu appears in a light gray bar across the top of your computer screen.

      Deselect this option in the View menu, or click the Hard Disk button again, to see Events listed by date.

    • To view Events by the month when the Event was recorded, choose View > Group Events By Month.

    • To see Events listed in descending order by the date they were recorded, choose View > “Most Recent Events at Top.” Deselecting this option in the menu puts the Events in ascending order, with the oldest Events at the top.

    • To separate clips in the Event browser by the days they were recorded, choose View > “Show Separate Days in Events.”

    • To show information about when the Event was recorded, choose iMovie > Preferences, click Browser at the top of the pane, and then select the checkbox next to “Show date ranges in Event Library.”
