  • Scroll the projects and then tap on the project icon you want to share.




  • In the screen popup, tap the Share button and then tap one of the following options:

  • iCloud Drive: To save the file to iCloud Drive and access it on your Mac.




  • When prompted, select the iMovie Project option.
  • Once file is moved, locate it on your Mac.

Note: By default, you may see the files shared with AirDrop in your Downloads folder. The Projects transferred to iCloud Drive will be located in the iMovie folder in iCloud Drive.
