It's crappy 1/5
Unfortunately exporting files stops working after a while unless a new iMovie database is created. But exporting files stops working again with this new database so only solution is to keep creating a new database.
First and last time using this video editor. Nothing seems to ever come together correctly. Very frustrating software.
Such a disappointment 1/5
By SIKADELIC Mu53
iMovie used to work wonderfully but the last update still hasn't fixed the underlying issues from the previous update. Please fix this or professors need to stop pushing this app on students.
works perfectly 5/5
whenever i use this app it makes it so easy to make a awesome video
So amazing!!!! 5/5
This is such a good appp-get it!
Why Did You Do It? 1/5
IMovie was perfect for inexperienced folks like me. I was using it to capture my travel vacation photos and turning them into movies. I would create from my IPhone, upload to YouTube so I can share with family and then also save in my shared albumns file on my IMac. Now I can't do any of that. The editing was simple, now it's horrible. I cannot share between the Iphone IMovie app and the Imac IMovie app even though supposedly everything is in your cloud (I hate your cloud). You are no longer user friendly. Especially when the user is technically challenged!
New Content Creator 2/5
Look, I am not an expert... and iMovie is perfect for my level of experience.... when it works. Today, non-stop force closing. WHY?!?!? Why is this product so broken?!?!
A clip organizer not a video editor... 1/5
By a goog user
The age range for this app says it all really. Even a 4 year old can drag and drop clips.
such a good editor for youtube videos etc.
No video plays and as a video editing software I feel like that is important. Sound works. Even exported out of quick time in another format even though it was exported from garage band. Apple products don't even work with apple producta anymore.
Won't Export to HD 1080p 2/5
I've used iMovie for about 8 years now, and it has worked for everything I've been doing. Recently, since updating to OS Catalina, iMovie won't export to 1080p. It won't even export to High Quality 720p! Very frustrating since I know I have been able to do that before the update.
I've grown up using iMovie on Macs and iPads but the recent version that I've been using for about 6 months now has a lot of issues. Primarily, the app is glitchy and 9 times out of 10 while I'm in the middle of editing / trying to export a video, the app becomes non-responsive and I have to force quit out of it. Though there's a few technical issues as well, this is the biggest problem I've been having with this application. For someone like me who can't afford final cut pro, iMovie works fine but it's a huge set back technically as I am constanly having to close and re-open it while trying to get projects done in a timely manner. I've also been having an issue where even after I eject my flashdrive with my camera's SD card in it, it says I have not, in fact, ejected the card and my files become corrupted and are not able to be opened or re-downloaded again onto the software.
Needs Brand New Themes and Text 5/5
I love imovie very much but i would really like some updates to the themes and text
Honestly Imovie isnl't the best but it's great to start wiith. You can do many stuff in here as long as you put time to it.
Audio and Video do not match 1/5
The current version is a mess. Besides that I lost every old movie I had made AND that until the recent update, Photos wouldn't allow you to import photos into iMovie, not audio and video do not line up. You literally have to separate the audio and try to manually line it up. Awful, awful, awful.
Not Exporting to Youtube! 3/5
I have used this app for all of my videos on my youtube channel, and for some unknown reason, it won't export them now. To youtube or anywhere else. It starts the prosses then stops and won't let me exit. I have to turn off my whole computer, very annoying!
Issue with the Preview Screen 1/5
A big part of editing is to see the work you're trying to edit. The preview screen is simply just black no matter how you try to fix it. I have not seen anything to fix this issue in months and has lead to downloading other application to get by. Until they fix the preview screen i wouldnt bother downloading this app.
you can use this app for youbet 4/5
i want to start a chanlr on youbet but i did not know what app to use to edit.
5 Stars 5/5
By Khalid Usmani
This is a great app for editing videos. It is for free, you should try this app instead of paying other editing softwares. This is probably the best editing software I have ever used!!!!!
My imovie thumbnails and most of my videos play black. I can the audio but there is no video!!!
dont like new update 1/5
Can we at least have the option to have the old version cause this aint it sir
Doesn’t work and won’t update 4/5
By Sketch Tuner
Works pretty well as of an app store update that enables the latest stable update of iMovie which works on my system. Now if only I can process 720p Videos without my system cranking the heat to an excessive 100C.
Title transitions 1/5
Can't adjust title transitions. They fade in/fade out at a fixed speed, whether you want them to or not.
Not So Good For Me... 2/5
By Sugar Rush YT
The Audios that come with it are so trashy. And When I try exporting my Videos to YouTube, It Denies IT! I am Fed Up with this! And on top of that, There is no background music that comes with it! You have to buy it from iTunes! Not Like my MacBook pro was expensive enough🙄. I really thought it would be the same on mobile and more and it is really underwhelming. It even took 10 minutes to download. AND (yes there is more) It deleted most of my videos when i updated the platform, thinking it will fix all of the negative things about it! But NO, It made me HATE it even MORE. And Hate is an understatement. I really dont think you should use it if you are starting a YouTube channel.
Usless with Mac OS 10.14 1/5
Typical Apple. Can't install software that shipped with the machine. Whole reason I bought ths 27" iMac was to use iMovie and now I can't. Just another $2700 Apple product I own that Apple makes useless.
iMovie Is practically useless. 1/5
This is the only alternative to purchasing software that I have, and now I can barely use it. Every time I click something, split a clip, move a clip, the application stops responding for a very long time. I've been editing a 10 min video for two days straight, when I could have finished it in one.
If I Could Do Less than a Star, I Would 1/5
By Coach Tomes
And, would give the support folks negative valued stars if available. How can a program made for the OS and computer, using video shot on an Apple product, have so many recurrent issues?
I’d happily start over but don’t have time, and the first suggestion made to me by the tech support people was to just forget that I stuck dozens of hours to finish my project and do it in another program.
It’s inexcusable. The same issue with compression seems to come up for them, and there’s not a single consistent fix to provide? Thousands of same issues since 2015, and there’s not a soul in that company that can fix it? Seriously?
Worse Video maker known to MAN!!!! 1/5
I have been trying to make a video for work all day which normally only takes me a few minutes, but I got a mac now so I figured I would try it out. I am not on my fifth hour on trying to work on this crap. I have never in my life seen a program that won't let you undo something that the was on key stroke behind. If you iike to keep retyping slides then use this POSitive software. I guess i will go buy a real video creating software that will actually be helpful!
videos go black 1/5
everytime i import a video it always goes black for somereason and it gets annoying and you cant see the full video even on the screen i dont know how to fix this but PLEASE FIX THIS
Impressively Terrible 4/5
I’d honestly believe it if Apple came out and said this version of iMovie is the way it is to funnel people toward purchasing Final Cut Pro, because every aspect of the UI and overall experience of iMovie is sluggish at best and infuriating much of the rest of the time. There’s a lot of open source software that far exceeds the features presented here, and is a lot more straightforward to use, which is exactly where I went after wasting a few hours trying to learn iMovie.
love it 5/5
By pugicorn 101
Good video editor 4/5
Although I use this to make videos, this is a good video editor to use.
Love It 5/5
I love making episodes!It helps me with A LOT of stuff.
Worst Movie Editor Update 1/5
I really used to enjoy imovie when it came out. Now with the latest update i cannot edit videos due to black screen in preview screen and clips arent visable. I would advise to fix this problem ASAP! I would have given this app a negative review if i could honestly speaking
This program constantly lags whenever I'm trying to watch a video clip. It also seizes up when I try and close it
Garbage software 1/5
Apple should be embarassed.
My videos won’t save anymore 1/5
I cant save my videos anymore like at all no matter what i do i used to love imovie and honestly it really let me down.
Cannot export 1080p video 1/5
1080p option is greyed out when I try to export the video after editing.
how much i love imovie 5/5
i have a youtube channel called box fort brayden
and i use this to edit it is so easy
Won’t export any of my content 1/5
Ive used this app for a couple years now. no real complains until out of the blue just won’t export anything. Won’t share to my files or youtube no message pop up just nothing. super frustrated.
Amazing Except... 3/5
Every week I've been editing an hour long video. It's an incredibly helpful and intuitive tool and has presented me with almost no issues except recently I've noticed something buggy about the software: I'll be editing and all of a sudden the program will stop playback and I won't be able to edit anymore. I quit and reopen which usually does the trick. The trouble is that this happens 3-4 times each session. Very annoying! Please fix!

Absolute Garbage 1/5
By Sean Man
Current version breaks all your file extensions and says "This item cannot be shared while it is still referencing media on the camera." Even though the files are sitting on the desktop
used to work fine before Catalina 2/5
Not sure why but syncing audio on this version keeps messing up. If I record with an external audio source, it doesn't line up. It never used to be an issue. And now it's hit or miss. Sometimes it's fine, but most of time it doesn't work. I downloaded a free app that works just fine. It's too bad. iMovie used to be such a good little video editor.
so aggravating 2/5
i downloaded the update yesterday that said it was supposed to stop the issue that prevented media from appearing in the photo library browser when using a Mac but today when i went to try and put my video together i had the exact same probelm!!!!!
IMOVIE IS GOOD. 4/5
By Karen Mcfaul
Ok, this app is the best. It is amazing for mac, Although some apps have more feautures like adobe photoshop, its alright.
Really good and well made! 5/5
This is one if not the best editing software for mac in my opinion. I think you should really try it out!
its good but this flaw is important to notice 4/5
