Great tool for amateur videographers!

This is the best “free” tool available for amateur film making. I use it for multimedia production at church. You’ll be hard pressed to find a free digital video editor with the power built into iMovie. Cutaways, disolves, color matching, green screen/chroma-keying are all available for making professional looking videos. The one thing I wish I had available direclty in the package was access to the great EQ and Compression tools that are in Garageband. As it stands, I have to export the audio track into Garageband to do more advanced audio post-processing and then import it back into iMovie to complete a project. In-spite of that shortcoming, this is still a phenomenal tool. I can’t say enough good things about it.

Its Good, but needs a lot more improvements

I really like iMovie and think its great for doing both SD and HD videos, but I think it could use a really solid upgrade, like HD conversion and being able to seperate audio from video. I like how simple it is to use but think more advanced features should also be included, I feel like compared to other editing software programs I’ve tried those were much more advanced, and iMovie is great for beginners and Amatures but needs a serious reboot especially for Mac OS Sierra. So Yes I recommend it if you need something basic. Its great for SD videos. But I need more to convert SD to HD.

Good but one problem...

I really like iMovie, but today I was trying to put in the music from iTunes. I clicked import and it said, no clips there. I kept clicking import, and nothing showed up! So, I closed the app and opened it again. Then I clicked import again and finally it worked. All I needed left was the actual video, which is why I needed music, you know for my background, but when I clicked import for my video, it did the same thing! It said still no clips. I closed the app, did it again. Nothing showed up. So, now I have the music, but the most important part, my video isn’t there. :( Apple, please fix this issue.
