Customer Reviews

iMovie seems to like making hard drive full

Copies the original, copies the output, copies all the media, then won’t ever let it go. Maybe it’s all part of a scheme to move us to the cloud, but the decision to do simple edits in iMovie (5x 3 minute webcam captured instructional videos) has resulted in 53Gb of drive space. That and finishing them in PP took half the time.

Add to that, you must update the app, no longer a choice to ignore it, because you have never used it. And yes, that was a subtle note to Pages, Safari, Garage Band, Notes, Keynote, and all the other programs that emulate, but never integrate with the outside world where so much already exists

We’re back to the whole Apple ecosystem, do it our way with our (copies of existing) tools, and ask no questions. Ah how we have come full circle from the Big Brother commercial that stated it all.

You should start to play nicer with the other children

It’s Great

Whenever I see these review sections, it strikes me that almost every rating is 5 or 1 stars.

iMovie is weighed down because of countless issues with crashes. I’ve experienced some too, but within weeks Apple released a patch which allowed me to get back to editing. The 5 star reviews are from people who get to experience the product how it was meant to be experienced, and it’s great.

While there is a bit of a learning curve after you expand from just drag and drop movie-making to the more advanced techniques included, I was able to get ahold of almost all the features iMovie ’14 has to offer*. After that, it’s great.

Whether you make movies a lot of just occassionally, iMovie is great. It’s a intuitive (One of Apple’s favorite words) app with great features, and it’s easy to get to know. It’s no Final Cut Pro, but it’s more than enough to keep you making new material for days.

Get it. :D

*I still have no idea how to use the precision editor

Just does not work.

I’m shocked that Apple would produce something of such poor quality. I simply cannot get this new version of iMovie to run. I’ve tried everything including purging my library and all prefrences and plists. Reinstalling does not help either. I’ve tried support and online forums and there is absolutly no solution. I have never had any Apple app that simply could not work. This is a serious step backwards for Apple.
