FileVault + iMovie = Trouble · I was try­ing to im­port some video I shot at the beach in­to iMovie and it just wouldn’t go; the pic­ture would lurch and stut­ter and then the im­port would just halt, no di­ag­nos­tic­s. I was puz­zled be­cause I used to im­port all the time on my much-slower pre­vi­ous Pow­erBook.

I wouldn’t be sur­prised if soak­ing up da­ta at FireWire rates, plus en­crypt­ing it, might be a bit much; so I logged in­to another—unencrypted—account on this com­put­er and it im­port­ed fine.
