I had to buy this because iMovie doesn’t seem to like the way I use jpegs to make movies. But it has limited functionaltiy, The manual in the help menu doesn’t exist. You have to figure it out for yourself. Doesn’t like too many RAW images at a time, crashes. I have had to do workarounds, and usually when I’ve made a movie I put it into iMovie to change the format so I can use it. Buy it if you’re tech savvy. if you’re a novice, stay away.

Does what it says on the box!

Nice one.

Fed it a GoPro time lapse sequence of almost 800 images and told it to crop, resize and turn into video. Took about 5 mins and turned out a very crisp and clear result.

UI could maybe use a bit of work but I have no problems at all with this being value for money.

Not satisfied

Not connecting to Iphoto library. When trying to import photo’s a pop up window shows errors. It refers to a list for the errors to view, but it is now where to find. Every time when you want to import more photo’s it deletes the first import attempt. Making a movie from the photo’s that survive the import it runs very fast. Would definitely request my money back
