This app used to be why I wanted a mac. This and Garage Band. Now, and basically since they started updating for Apple Silicon, it doesn't work correctly at all. It'll open up to the new project page but as soon as you click the box to create a new project, it closes. Every single time. I know that my Macbook Pro is older and I know that it runs Intel but at least leave us with a functional version of these mainstay apps or make it easier to find the older versions online. Apple's website stops at version 9 something. Not okay Apple.
This app used to be one of the reason why you got a Mac. As of the last month or so, it no longer works with any of our Intel based Macs. I'm hoping that this is temporary. Even if we don't continue to get the latest version, at least leave us with a functioning version of iMovie.
THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!
iMovie works great for certain things, some features are hard to use if you don't know what you are doing and are a beginner.
11/25/2020 - It would appear that many of the bugs that made this program nearly unusable are corrected. My advice to the developers... Actually USE the program for at least a few weeks on multiple MacOS devices (go back at least a couple of years) to ensure that the prior version complete failures are not repeated. That aside, I'm again happy to use this product to create short videos. (4 - 45 minutes).
Following the release of Big Sur, the most recent version of iMovie contains very buggy user interface elements. For instance, the share button that used to exist on the upper right corner of the window is now gone. When you export a movie through File > Share from the top menu, you cannot see the export progress.
Missing files for no reason! I will stay away from iMovie for Mac until the missing file problem has been fixed! I have it seen missing file without even taking out the storage device. But this time it happened, I did not take out the disk properly. Still unacceptable! I will edit on my PC until I get a PC for my desk! They refuse to fix the problem, which is a big issue especially for big youtube channels that have a lot of subs.
I even pay for it once I hate that the guy died, mac doeent worht sh%$ anymore....
I want to do a voiceover for a keynote deck - that seems like the easiest action in the world - but it is impossible to do in imovie, I succeeded with converting slides to images and spending a few hours trying to figure everything out - it finally worked. I do not understand why there is a cult of Apple when their products are difficult to use.
Whe i downloaded imovie i thought it would be another one of those video editing apps that you have to pay for thats a rip off. But it was much more tthan that! Imovie has everything i need to video edit! I hope yall love this app thx!
