To have all your iMovie Events available in Final Cut Pro, choose File ⇒ Import ⇒ iMovie Event Library and
click OK. An alert message informs you that any previously imported iMovie Events are ignored and only
iMovie Events unavailable to Final Cut Pro are imported. Click OK to continue. The size of your iMovie library
determines how long the import process takes. Once the import is complete, all the clips and Events created in
iMovie are available for use inside Final Cut Pro's Event Library.
