Apple just refuses to leave well enough alone when it comes to their software. I used to create band promo videos with EASE with the previous version, imported audio & video, synced everything up, edited clips, and came out with a good final product… NOW?? they have discontinued some of the features and created an entirely new interface. 3 calls to tech support to try and figure it out only to find out it will no longer do what I need it to do. WHY DISCONTINUE USEFUL FEATURES?? Why make an interface LESS user friendly??? Not only that, when I upgraded from the previous version, I lost a good deal of my existing projects… Poof!!! gone, not recoverable. And one of the imovie ‘specialists’ at tech support actually told me he doesn’t use imovie so doesn’t really know all the features…. omigod!! Apple, I am absolutely furious that, having learned how to use the previous version of iMovie, I now have to search for and purchase a different software program and learn how to use it simply to accomplish the same thing . They’v done it with iTunes also, every time there’s a major update it becomes less user friendly. If I could just break off from Apple completely after this I would, I am that upset.
What buffoon is in charge of this crap?
I could make a pretty decent list of all the functionality that has been removed in this version - as well as functions that should have been put in 5 years ago, but still haven’t been incorporated. I’ve learned to go without them either by working around it, or just accepting that the quality might not be exactly what I want. However, today as I was trying to simply upload a video to Instagram, I noticed that this version removed the option to adjust aspect ratio for absolutely no reason at all. This doesn’t improve anything!!!! Wanna use iMovie? Your video will be in 16:9, end of story. Want to put that on Instagram? Too bad. Half of it is going to be cut off. Seriously?!?!?!?! How long has Instagram been out? You’d think that Apple would actually put effort into keeping up with widely-adopted technologies, but I guess not in this case.
I have not used iMovie on my current laptop since it was bought, which was in 2013. However, I just went on vacation and I wanted to edit a movie and so I started to make the clips faster which meant I needed to optimize each clip. After I did that for about 10 clips, I got a notification that I had limited storage on my laptop because optimizing each clip wasted storage. This brings me to my need to update the app. If I update it, everytime I need to make a clip faster, I don’t need to waste storage to do so. I have been trying to update it for the last hour and nothing is working. I tired logging out of my iTunes account multiple times and I’ve removed the app from my deck as well but nothing seems to be working. Please help. I want the updated version because it would help me out a lot.
