As much as I love iMovie I do not need to see it all over the credits in my trailer. Here is how you can alter it.

The Before shot:


First CLOSE iMovie

Go to the finder and “Show Package Contents”


Navigate to
Contents/Resources/English.lproj and do a “Get Info” on TrailerStrings.strings. Add Read/Write to your user to the permissions list.
You will also need to add READ WRITE permissions for the Contents folder, the Resources folder and the English (or whatever language you are using) folder.
Add Opens with TextEdit if you think you will do this more than once.


Edit the Credits Line being sure to leave the underbar “_” there


The After shot:
(I am sure you can change everything in that file, that is text, but
BE SURE to keep a backup and don’t change the special characters)
