iMovie project files are named filename.iMovie, work with digital video (or .dv) files and work only with iMovie. What's great about iMovie is that you can transport your file (on a firewire drive or DVD for small/short projects) between computers. This is difficult to do with other video editing software. This portability makes iMovie a popular software for education.
