This app lacks modern features and is the same it was 10 years ago. It seems like apple has halted development on this software and is just maintaining it as a legacy product because it's free.
I simpy cannot believe there is STILL NOT portrait editing built in for reels and stories editing.
Check out my new youtube channel, ThePlayerOfCooking, where I make high quality basketball videos using this platform, Imovie. Imovie is a very good editing app that i recomend aquiering and putting to use.
Import from iOS does not work, keeps saying "waiting" to air drop from iphone to mac book. Watched many tutorials and almost worked now says "Project too new" hours of research on forums, youtube, google. Still not working.
its turning all my clips red & it's exporting them that way.
I like where Apple is going with imovie but an automatically generated subtitle feature would be sick
My husband and I are YouTubers who like to put out a professional product but don't yet have money in the budget for a professional movie editing program. We have found iMovie to be a very good product for the price! We're actually amazed at being able to combine multiple video and audio tracks together, do various transitions, change the speed of clips, crop, use filters, etc. There really is so much you can do, and I'm learning new tricks all the time to improve my videos. The frustrations I have with this program, first and foremost--the "Titles" are very limited. I find myself constantly tweaking the few options that are there to "kind of" do what I want, and there are such limited places and styles to overlay text on a clip. I would also love to be able to include other animated graphics, such as moving arrows or circling an object. And finally, exporting videos is excruciatingly slow and requires so much hard drive space! I have had to connect a bootable external hard drive to my Macbook just for iMovie use, since I've started shooting in 5K . If these issues could be resolved, I would honestly not ever have need for a "professional" movie program, and would give this a resounding 5 stars.
Great and simple for beginnners! Good GUI However it lacks customization. For example there is no Library for effects that you can indivially add to your Movie. I know you guys have to be planning to add something like this in the future but I have waited SOOO long for it. Once that is added Imovie will be the one of the best video editor because of its simple to use GUI.
The app lags whenever I try to play back. Please fix!!!
Frequently fails on export with no explanation or help with troubleshooting
