Backups for iMovie is like Time Machine® for iMovie®! It performs timed and manual snapshots of your iMovie Libraries.

What can Backups for iMovie Do?

  • Reflecting the fast pace of video editing, Backups for iMovie creates incremental snapshots as often as every 2 minutes. The one hour backup interval of Time Machine can seem like an eternity if you loose your work.
  • Making labeled snapshots during your editing lets you restore to key steps in your process—finished a rough cut, finished adding titles, ready to export. A description added to a snapshot, describing why you made it is very handy!
  • Lets you restore everything from a given snapshot or selected libraries, events or projects.
  • Ignores iMovie’s sometimes very large work files. These are automatically recreated.
  • Extensive logging. You can delete old snapshots.
  • “Safe” snapshots. Only completed snapshots are retained. Available disk space is checked before the backup begins.
  • “Safe“ restores. If to a local drive, replaced files are placed in the Trash—they are never deleted.*
  • Continually adding new features.

*The Restore process can not recover from the target drive failing or going offline, although you may repeat a restore after the drive is returned to service.
