iMovie issues


I have troubleshot and worked with the theatre version on my appleTv 4 to no avail. I cannot figure out why all of a sudden without having changed any settings the app is not connecting to iCloud and showing the movies I’ve created. Movies that show up on all other devices.
That being said. I love the app. I use it regularly and would appreciate updated tutorials on how to get the most out of it. I would also like options to change the trailer music. So each trailer option has multiple soundtracks to choose from.
Oh and could you curate a collection of downloads to enhance the movie making experience. Like quality apps or soundtrack music?

High Quality ! One suggestion

I just wanna message people

iMovie is an amazing product and I have encouraged friends and family members to use it, however, knowing that this is an Apple product (and the iPhone 6 and later all feature Live Photos) I would enjoy seeing an added feature which can turn the Live Photos into a video or play through the video instead of staying as one picture.

Very good! One suggestion


I’ve been using iMovie professionally for years and honestly I owe a lot to it- however there is one feature the app doesn’t have that could really enhance future video productions. I would like to see a feature in which you can add camera movements to videos after they have been imported into the program, eg: tracking something, panning, or zooming in. I wouldn’t mind paying extra for this feature, as it would help me out greatly!
