Nice and easy to use product - I’m baffled at how many people rate this app as a 5 star or a 1 star. I recently bought my first Mac, although I've owned an iPhone and iPad for many years. I’ve used various movie making apps for those devices so I wanted one for my mac. I’m still a novice to movie making, but I created my first video show for my wife’s school project. I was able to easily incorporate photos, videos, music, and a voice over with little to no experience on something of this magnitude. I’m honestly impressed with iMovie, and I can’t complain whatsoever. It was smart enough to know to lower the music volume on its own, when we did the voice over. I had to adjust NOTHING. So for those that have complained about this app, I have no clue what they are looking for…..Hollywood video maker?? Anyway, a big thanks to the developers of this app. I appreciate you keeping it simple yet powerful to fulfil multiple projects.
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.

simple yet very important features are still missing - I have dozens of hours of home movies from 25 years ago converted from hi8 tapes, they are obviously in standard definition 4/3 format, and this new iMovie 10, unlike the version 9, will not you let choose the definition and format of your project, everything is HD 16/9! DUMB! And the most baffling loss from the upgrade: KEYWORDS! Keywords are gone!! Why?!? And oh my god how hard is it to re-implement keywords, especially when you have thousands of engineers and billions of cash! I have a libray with 300+ clips, now let's try to manage that without the ability to assign keywords to a clip! SAD! As of version 10.1.6 there is still a lingering and very annoying bug with changing the date/time of a clip: sometimes the change works, sometimes (I still could not figure out why) it does not and the change is reverted the next time you load your library.
unhappy with this app - I downloaded this app last eve. after the app was finished, I went to m Facebook acct. i get this message “Safari cannot connect to the server” “Safari cannot open this page” Before i downloaded this recent app my Facebook acct always worked. i need this fixed—NOW!!!! SHARON
Absolutely awful - 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.
Useless and a waste of time - I didn’t expect it to be great, because I use Adobe Premiere Pro for creating movies. Nonetheless, I had a quick slide show that I wanted to throw together and thought I’d give it a try. The trial was a waste of my time. Couldn’t adjust portrait style images so that the whole image could be viewed. No suggestions anyway. iMovie decides how it wants to display/move your images, and you’re stuck with it. I could have done better with PowerPoint! Apple, you are not attentive to your own apps anymore!
STOP THE WEEKLY UPDATES - STOP THE WEEKLY UPDATES Seriously, bunch all the updates all together once a month or something, but getting an app update notification every week is too much.
