RCPROJECT, iMovie '08 Project File (.rcproject)

The RCPROJECT Video file format

iMovie, a video editing program for Apple devices, used the RCPROJECT file format to store video project information up to iMovie ‘08 or iMovie 7. The project file contains all kinds of information that are vital for the video editing process. This includes the project’s timeline, effects, transitions, general project settings, and references to the media used. This means that the project file does not contain the actual media such as videos, images, and audio files, but merely references where the program can access the files on your device.

Technical details of RCPROJECT files

RCPROJECT files are not manually saved by users of the iMovie program. Instead, the program saves these project files automatically in a default folder. Usually, it is found in the “/Movies/iMovie Projects” folder. All these automatically saved projects are accessible via the “Project Library” panel in iMovie. RCPROJECT files can be imported into Apples Final Cut Pro X as well.
