    We had a similar problem on our network. We wanted to try and save to a network drive instead of the hard drive.

    I wasn't able to find a solution to this, despite talking to an Apple Qualified Expert (not Apple Directly though)

    Pretty sure its the same as '08 - ~/Movies/iMovie Projects and ~/Movies/iMovie Events - we have ~/Movies point to the HDD because the performance over the network would probably be horrible, you can easily move these files/folders between macs/network drives and they will pop up next time you open imovie (make sure people are using unique project/event names).

    I use a great bit of software, although not sure how it works for multiple users etc.

    DefaultFolderX

    Amongst other things, it allows you to set the default save path per application / for all applications / etc. Very useful.

    iMovie doesn't have a 'save dialog'...
