The last version of iMovie was great software - I created dozens of complex video projects that went way beyond what I should have been able to do with a consumer product. When I first imported my projects and events into iMovie 10, I almost cried. The events were sorted…alphabetically?! So all those events were in no order at all. The previous iMovie placed events in date order, sorted by year or month. And projects were kept in their own place, in the order you created them. Now projects are jumbled in with the events in no discernable order. It’s a mess.
Version 10.0.1 deleted all of my iMovie Theater projects - poof they were gone. Hours later most of them were re-created. Except the ones with still pictures where it wasn’t reading most of the pictures and put in a lovely green placeholder.
And don’t even think about trying to use iMovie 10 on an older MacBook. A late 2009 to be precise. I know Apple moves on, but if my hardware can’t handle the software give me a little warning Apple. Simply trying to view some AVCHD video in iMovie on the MacBook locked up the entire computer, every time, requiring a hard reboot. It is sadly unusable. Thank goodness I kept the previous iMovie on my desktop.
Scrap this version and go back to the drawing board.
I was perfectly fine with the version of iMovie I had. It only ever crashed on me once but ran smoothly as can be. This new version is garbage. When I went to export movie clips from my camera, it did not even alert me of this or say they were downloading and made it look like I had them already in the project folders so I can start editing them. But when I tried to do that, every clip I clicked on crashed my app. I then had to re-connect my camera JUST so I can get them back to try and edit them again (with some success) and watch as after a certain point, the whole app would again die on me.
It took me a VERY rude and frusturating call from apple to figure out that they were still downloading, but were not actually in imovie, but still on the camera even though it looked like they were in the project folder(???). It crashed every time I tried to edit an hour long clip. It crashed randomly when I tried to fix the Kens Burns. It crashed if I made a new event. Crashed if I left it open and tabbed to something else. This update is a living nightmare for me. I am not happy that I was forced to upgrade to this new version. I have an hour long funeral, three other commissions and a few personal projects of my own I have to get done by the end of March. Now I can’t do them. Yay.
Why the Hate?
I’m struggling to understand the negative postings. Maybe I’m just lucky but this new version is working out great for me…and I do consider myself a power user of this app. Yes, it takes a while to get used to the new layout and to find the controls…but they are there - I applaud Apple for making this user friendly - the rest of us can quickly learn where to find the controls we need. I find the new version to be much more responsive than the prior version. It launches faster and I absolutely love the background rendering…the ability to keep working while rendering is invaluable…as is the speed increases in the render itself. Also, I appreciate all of the new themes and trailer formats. The only head-scratching I did was around the duplication of my events. I had to do some searching in the forums to understand that iMovie made copies of everything so that I could (should I wish), easily return to the prior version. Give it a try, you have nothing to lose!
