Apple just refuses to leave well enough alone when it comes to their software. I used to create band promo videos with EASE with the previous version, imported audio & video, synced everything up, edited clips, and came out with a good final product… NOW?? they have discontinued some of the features and created an entirely new interface. 3 calls to tech support to try and figure it out only to find out it will no longer do what I need it to do. WHY DISCONTINUE USEFUL FEATURES?? Why make an interface LESS user friendly??? Not only that, when I upgraded from the previous version, I lost a good deal of my existing projects… Poof!!! gone, not recoverable. And one of the imovie ‘specialists’ at tech support actually told me he doesn’t use imovie so doesn’t really know all the features…. omigod!! Apple, I am absolutely furious that, having learned how to use the previous version of iMovie, I now have to search for and purchase a different software program and learn how to use it simply to accomplish the same thing . They’v done it with iTunes also, every time there’s a major update it becomes less user friendly. If I could just break off from Apple completely after this I would, I am that upset.
This just isn’t iMovie anymore
iMovie used to be a very good program for editing. It had that nice wraparound timeline - the one that STEVE JOBS made a HUGE DEAL about. It was intuitive, useful, and fast.
But now I’m playing back video and it’s freezing up every few seconds. I didn’t have this problem before. I can’t get the wraparound timeline to work for the life of me, making a lot of screen real estate completely useless. Please post how to retreat to a decent version. This is definitely NOT an upgrade.
I’d rate it ZERO STARS if that was an option. On my computer, the previous version edited 4k content butter-smooth, easy as anything. But this version, skimming with the mouse results in beach-ball after beach-ball. It’s no longer useable at all.
simple yet very important features are still missing
I have dozens of hours of home movies from 25 years ago converted from hi8 tapes, they are obviously in standard definition 4/3 format, and this new iMovie 10, unlike the version 9, will not you let choose the definition and format of your project, everything is HD 16/9! DUMB!
And the most baffling loss from the upgrade: KEYWORDS! Keywords are gone!! Why?!?
And oh my god how hard is it to re-implement keywords, especially when you have thousands of engineers and billions of cash! I have a libray with 300+ clips, now let's try to manage that without the ability to assign keywords to a clip! SAD!
As of version 10.1.6 there is still a lingering and very annoying bug with changing the date/time of a clip: sometimes the change works, sometimes (I still could not figure out why) it does not and the change is reverted the next time you load your library.
Still no timing information displayed on the playhead! This is madening!
