Every version gets worse

I used to like iMovie. It was something you could pull together a quick rough cut, throw in some titles and have it ready to show people in minutes.

This latest iteration is horrible. You have 0% control over anything. You have to use Apple’s stock titles with barely any options to edit or customise. It’s useless to me now. I don’t want every title to have animation. There is no functionality - that’s fine if you were editing on an iPhone, but this is meant to be a full desktop application. For anything other than the cutesy holiday trailers they like to show in commercials, this is useless. Not worth even opening.

I’m actually making a video in Powerpoint now because it’s easier. That’s how bad this is.

Even more useless than before.

I remember when imovie was actually useful. What on earth are Apple playing at? This version is dreadful! I have no idea where the transitiions are (if they even exist anymore). it still doesn’t have an intuitive timeline, instead opting for a window full of blocky stills. Apple seem to have gone for a “Tomy-My First Video Editor” look, although somehow still failed to make even the simplest task straightforward. If you want to upload a video and press a button to tidy up and publish then fine. If you want to actually edit a video then I’d look elsewhere.


I was really excited to get this app on my Macbook to help me edit my videos because i used to just use iMovie on my iPhone and to be honest its hardly any different on the Macbook. Why isnt there the option to move the text around on the screen, it ruins the video when its fixed in one place (which is usually the middle of the screen) to say this app costs £10 it is really disapointing when the exact same app on the iPhone is free and you dont really get any new/better features on the Mac.
