Customer Reviews

Simple tasks made harder post-update.

I use imovie alot with editing. Pre-update it worked perfectly well and although it isn’t anything too high tech it was good enough for me, but since this update it’s been the first time I’ve been annoyed with it’s actual function. For example; I use freezeframes quite a bit with the videos I do, before the update this was pretty much the easiest thing to do and was a breeze, but with this current version it just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever, when I want a freezeframe of a clip I expect it to be split from the clip so I can click and drag it around, the current operation isn’t practical. What was once a simpler program has been meddled with to become more trouble than it’s worth and as a result I’m very disappointed since i’ve been using it for years with hardly any problems at all.

Just terrible

So sad and of course so irritating. Perfectly good ap that did the job. then comes terrible terrible upgrade. To use an analogy, it’s a bit like you’ve been perfectly happy driving a manual car for years and then the manufacturer swaps your manual overnight without telling you, to an automatic. They leave a note on the windscreen to say, “this is much better and so easy to drive.” You get in and of course nothing works like a manual. So apple, you’ve shown zero thought for your customer, zero foresight and zero people skills. I’ve spent an hour getting lost on this, trying to do some basic editing of some work films, lost the imports and now have to start again.

Imovie good apple make it better please

Well now I have the new iMovie and everyone seems to be knocking it!!!! Its free isnt it it does exactly what it sets out to, simple easy video editing. Did my copy update ok, yes it did all my old videos work with it and it works really well. I think some people expect FCPro at no cost??? but overall imovie is excellent. So apple how about 3rd party add ins like photos app, now that would be interesting and how about giving the program full auto and full manual modes, that would be really good.
