Simply put………………garbage

Let me say this first, I love everything Apple. So glad I made the switch from PC to Mac. With that being said:

I purchased iMovie to put together a lyric video. I have never had a more frustrating time working with a piece of software in my life. It’s slow, importing videos from my camera is a nightmare, you move one thing in your timeline and it completely rearranges everything in your project, you turn off the “snapping” option and it still wants to snap clips and titles to either the beginning or the end of other clips already in your project, trying to line up titles to match the lead vocal in the song is like trying to line up feathers in a wind storm, editing in my opinion is the worst feature of the software, the workflow doesn’t make sense and, it is a complete waste of time trying to do anything with iMovie. It so disappointing not being able to use this software to finish my project. I’ve thrown it in the trash and I’m looking for new software to finish my video.

Just not liking it….

just a piece of junk program… It takes a good chunk of time just to open. Importing videos from my camcorder takes a lifetime. You can’t save, and if the program crashes before you take the time to exit out and re-launch it, you end up potentially losing hours of work. Playback is garbage, especially when you add video effects. Even with high resolution the videos I’ve had issues with the video clips glitching out. Just very displeased… I wish I could find a program that has better functionality and is more reliable without having to spend an arm and a leg. There are changes that need to be made, but unfortunately I can assume that they’re just trying to save money. It’s a shame that they would try so hard to stay below a certain budget at the expense of programming even the most necessary features to make a good and reliable video editing software. Waste of money.

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.
