How to split a clip into two in iMovie 09

Now that I’ve moved onto digitizing Video8 tapes that have no concept of time metadata or markers between clips, iMovie is importing them as ONE HUGE CLIP!

90 minutes of video in one clip!

Arghh…   I want to split it up into separate clips and events.  But it seems iMovie doesn’t seem to have an option to do this.

And this is where the beauty and power of Google combined with the Blogosphere comes to help!

Seems like Rob & Reb have already posted a solution here (http://rtbd.wordpress.com/2009/04/25/how-to-split-a-clip-into-two-separate-events-in-imovie-09/).

And then a bit later found this on the Apple forums – http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1888629.

Hope this helps some people out there!
