Getting There

With the recent update of iMovie 10.0.3 I have to say that I’m less than satisfied. iMovie got me started in making movies in college and has helped me make me PLENTY of videos to use in my Youth Ministry. I’ve heard all of the negative comments about and how everyone is “quick to jump from this platform to something more professional” but I’ve been on the opposite end of the spectrum. iMovie 9 was able to do almost everything that I needed and the learning curve was fairly easy, but now with iMovie 10… I find this not to be the case. Unfortunately iMovie has sacrificed fundamental editing tools for the sake of interface and in the attempt to make a more “user friendly for both the iPhone and desktop.” The newest update has made things a little easier and i think it is a step in the right direction back to the accessories of the iMovie 9 days, but iMovie still lacks the brilliant Inspector tools in order to make adjustments. Audio is substancially harder to manipulate, slow and fast motion is more difficult to use, and exporting to quicktime and being able to change the bit rate and HD quality of my videos are no longer there. I’m still satisfied with iMovie, but I think i’ll be sticking with iMovie 9 until 10 starts aiming higher than it is, even if that means having a slower operating system. Hope this helps guys.

Old School iMovie was more intuitive

Every since Apple tried to emulate Final Cut Pro with iMovie, it’s been a disaster. Perhaps not for Apple, but there’s a learning curve for the user. I can recall television advertisement with the first iterations of iMovie and it was a dream. The clips where placed in a grid-style box on the left and the timeline was positioned below. Simply drag the desire clip to the timeline and edit there or one could edit the clip while remaining in the grid-style storage box. At that time, many third part companies were creating custom themes, transitions, etc. So, the user still had some flexibility.

This current version simply ( or not so simply ) makes production more difficult and it truly reminds me of Final Cut Pro. Guess Apple has no intention of returning to software of the past. Well, that may be the case, but why not develop something that is timely, but more user friendly.

Yes, this is merely an opinion, but I just do not like this format. Are there any others?

Also, did anyone have trouble with the download from the App store? In the discussion forums, I read a thread (including me) who received the message that there was an update for iMovie twice. However, it was the same version. Initially, I couldn’t get it to run, so I used CleanMyMac 2 to uninstall just the application. Then the App store permitted me to reinstall iMovie. Anyone experience this issue?

Removed Features from iMovie 9

I’m seriously disappointed that Apple has decided to remove standard features from the previous version of iMovie. Apple, please add back the ability to custumize export settings like “Export using QuickTime…” where you were able to choose bit rate, etc. in order to influence file size and quality. Until this gets added back, I will be using iMovie 9. The beautiful interface of this new version is worthless without important power features.
You can’t even export the audio on it’s own with this new version.
Bottom line - you shouldn’t REMOVE features from a program… standard policy should be to ADD features.

STILL NEED TO ADD BACK FEATURES. A little tip, pretty much a no-brainer, DO NOT remove features from a program and call it an upgrade. I call that idiotic.
