Just doesn’t work anymore

We’ve been using iMovie for a few years now. We used to be able to DL movies from our Canon ZR930 (old school, I know…). We were also able to break raw video into clips, trim the clips, move them around and export the finished video. iMovie now lets us import and it appears to allow us to edit the clips, but we can no longer export the video. We can’t even get the video to render into iMovies’ theater. We get this error: "Video rendering error: -50”.

We used to really like this program. Now it is useless. It simply doesn’t even do what it used to be able to do. It has gone the way of too many other Apple apps - untested, non-working and useless. Run a search through the support forums and you’ll find that Apple has not only ignored the reviewers begging for help, but has also ignored everyone else who is asking for help. Sad. Don’t waste your time or money on this albatross.

Useless after upgrade; at least it worked before

before I did the update on March 10th, 2015, iMovie worked alright. It would crash SOMETIMES, but it was manageable. I got myself a new digital camera with 4K movie capabilities and surprisingly, iMovie was able to process the 4K. If I understand it right, it did “down step” it to less than 4K without much loss to quality, which was fine when watching on PC. No need for a 4K converter. The 4K movies would buffer however. Let me say that my iMac is from Mid-2011 but I upgraded to 20MB of memory, having OS Yosemite.

well, after March 10th, 2015, after upgrading to iMovie 10.0.7., it doesn’t open anymore. Well, what am I supposed to do???

Now I am looking at other video editing tools like Adobe Premiere. I am really fed up with iMovie, especially since it is all up to us users to troubleshoot. My computer is long out of warranty and I cannot call and ask without being charged. I am wondering if I ever should update ANY of those updates. Or, if I do, wait until the consensus it out from the general public, research all the reviews, and then update.

Version 10.0.7 doesn’t work

After installing the updated IMovie 10.0.7, i’ve been unable to create any movies. After importing the unedited video and begin a project, IMovie quits unexpectedly. I’m using IMovie on a 27 inch Mac with 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7 running OS X Yosemite. The prior version of IMovie and running the OS X operating system worked great. My big mistake was updating operating system and IMovie as the two don’t work together. I spent an hour on the phone with Apple Support who were terrific at trying to assist. They walked me through creating a new IMovie library to import video into and had me re-load my operating system and IMovie still doesn’t work. I’m at a loss, any assistance would be great.
