You will need to crash out of iMovie if it is not responding.

If the project gets lost or corrupted then you can try recovering it, either within iMovie or by using specialist recovery software:

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
