Customer Reviews

Tim Cook wrings his hands…”Excellent!”

I have to agree with all of the negative reviews. I used this application a year or two ago and I swear it had way more options and tools. It seems like Apple took away functionality so I would be forced to purchase Final Cut Pro… am I missing something? I tried to create a video with iMovie a couple of weeks ago and all the functionality I loved is now missing… and I don't mean “I can’t find it” it’s gone. I don't understand the direction the company is headed but I hope they realize that they are making all of their loyal Apple users angry and frustrated. They next time you “update” one of my apps or devices, especially the ones I paid for (Apple TV) don't take functionality away and make them useless (Apple TV) or leave the once loved application or device useless and unused (Apple TV and all of the other applications on my Macbook). I am actually in the Ap Store this morning to check the price of Final Cut Pro now. (Tim Cook wrings his hands…”Excellent!”)

Enough features for an iPad app

Put video and audio in, choose fancy theme, write text, add music, done! Wow, it’s almost like cheating! I can’t do anything that I actually want to do in this program. It has zero flexibility. What you see at first glance is everything you could ever do in this program. It’s just too basic. When I first started exploring it I actually thought that the advanced features were hidden by default, since Logic Pro X did this the first time I launched that program. Anyway, I found out I was wrong. So that’s how you spot a dumbed down program. If you barely know what you’re doing in iPhoto, then maybe you should stick with this. But QuickTime Pro is easy to use, very cheap, and way more capable than iMovie.

Apple is REALLLY going backwards now (soon they will be MS certified)

“simplification” with a non-intuitive user interface causes significant problems - e.g. suddenly not able to access some files, events, projects, etc inside the “library" (at least not after two days of trying)

seems unstable, user interface nearly always crosses you up & seems very slow with moderate sized projects

would go back if I could, but having built a couple of projects (or were they events?, or where they a dated set of clips?, or were they movies? -- just what are they, anyway?) I would have to trash several full days of work, as the “library” or its components do not seem to be able to be transformed into anything that can be made compatable with older versions

the frustrating thing is that the files are inside the “library” (great idea, that, put everyting into one large package [like Entourage, eh?] so if something goes bad with one component, the whole project or even the whole library becomes junk) — they just can’t be accessed, aside from looking at them in the finder
