Maybe I'm being optimistic, but this is a .9 release.

Since this is a .9 release, maybe this is the final update for iMovie '09, before iLife '13 is introduced? :o


(Or maybe .11 will be the final update, a la OS X Tiger -- or maybe I'm jumping the gun.) :p

Who are the other two people? I use iMovie every week and it works well for my needs. While today's update isn't all that dramatic, I'm glad that they're still paying some attention to it.

Well, I found one of the three! :D

But, yeah, it's a good thing they're paying attention to this. It'd be much better if they were paying attention to their #2 "Top Paid" app a little more, though. It is selling in HUGE amounts. D:

I don't make a change just for the sake of making a change. iMovie 6 works just fine for me...intuitive unlike the newer editions...no problems...too many jump to the next version just because its new. New is not always better...Here is an example personified.

People always talk about how Apple has seemingly abandoned pro users. But in the case of iLife and iWork apps, doesn't the lack of major updates make it seem like Apple has mostly working on mac apps at all? We're still getting OSX updates and updates to things like iTunes (mostly because it's important to mobile sales). I would think that Apple would want to put at least some effort into the mac apps just to keep parity with the iOS versions, if nothing else.

Sad considering that Apple used to use new versions of these to show off the mac.

I just wish they would fix their crappy video output quality. I can take a beautiful 1080 video and iMovie will butcher it so it looks like some VHS tape.

Adobe premier elements will output it fine.

Well iMovie is #11 in the Top Paid, which is not bad at all.

It's #17 in Top Grossing just in front of Autocad ($899) so that should mean that iMovie sold at least 60 copies at $14.99 each :rolleyes:

Battery Status achieved #14 in top paid with about 1K downloads in a day, so I'd imagine iMovie is bringing in over 1K downloads per day on average from the MAS alone... IDK whether Apple still distributes it in any other way (IE, preinstalled on new Macs or on disk.)

Well, I'm happy that they're fixing bugs. Worst thing is moving on to a whole revamped version when stuff still needs to be addressed.

does it offer RED support? Will it in the future?
I hope it does, I really want to buy a Red Dragon to film my cats. I have two and they deserve top notch resolution but I need a decent non-linear editor to handle the pure awesomeness, unlike fcpx.

Well if you can afford a RED camera i guess you wouldn't be wining here about iMovie :D
So lets call it bluff

And yet another mister "know it all". If you save long enough maybe even YOU can buy a copy, that makes you nr 4 !

what is? what is the example? how is it personified?

i suspect the latest imovie works better at importing and working w/ projects originally created on iOS, which is what i use it for.

I still use iMovie for throwing together some clips or just adding some transitions/subtitles for some music clips (Using Premier/Final Cut for other things).

Hoping these bug fixes target ALL of the issues I have run into.

YES, iMovie is not top notch and not entirely useful for serious editing, BUT it does have a purpose for some and can be very useful depending on your goal.

So did they ever add native avchd support? That would probably get me to finally upgrade from an old version. Converting every file to an even bigger one really sucks.

Since I realized I had full YouTube Partnership, I cleaned up an existing one-off project and tried uploading to YouTube directly from iMovie. It didn't seem to work, even with the latest update installed.

Still had to use the web interface to upload to YouTube, so meh.

I don't care for the constant scrubbing of video/audio when merely moving the mouse around to get to the menus. Maybe that, at least, I can mess with and make it not work on purpose.

AVCHD is a compressed format to maximize storage on limited-storage devices like the cameras. There are several sites that give the technical reasons why AVCHD is not an editing format (summary - it records the full frame only so often then records several frames as deltas. It takes a lot of CPU to have to go back and forth within the movie to render/edit it). That is the reason for iMovie's conversion to a larger file size format.

And yet there are other apps that support the format natively. And cpu is not a problem on my system, the format has been around for years and even the low end macs are much more powerful than they used to be. Does any version of FC support it, or does that convert as well?

Hello? It's called Final Cut Pro X and it already exists.

That is what the previous poster was talking about.

Version 9 = '11.

Which is why the update is called iMovie '11, Version 9.0.9.

Hello? It's called Final Cut Pro X and it already exists.

Actually, Its called Adobe Premiere Elements 11 and it competes directly with iMovie - FCPX?? A $300 "pro" app? Not what I need.

I continue to use iMovie because its a cheap and fast way to process lots of short sports films.

Besides Final Cut "pro" X is probably getting close EOL status. No real professionals use it. Apple lost that market to Adobe and Avid.

How is Adobe Premiere Elements? I tried to use a trial version 2 or 3 months ago on a mid-2010 iMac, but it wouldn't run correctly. Just starting a new project, not even being able to import anything, would cause the program to hang and I had to kill it every time.

Byrnes3969

I got premiere elements 11 from Amazon for $65 during a sale BUT its the PC version.
About a week prior to the purchase, I picked up an HP at a garage sale for $35 and I upgraded the processor to an AMD i7 equivalent for $45. It already had a good hard drive and 8 gb of RAM. I did a clean install using the restore disks and installed premiere elements.

The PC version has never locked up, crashed or hung and runs flawlessly. I can't speak to the Mac version. I use it while iMovie is rendering to do other projects. Everything about it is really nice. The workflow is a little different and I prefer iMovie because I can get closer to the clips and really get down on each frame better than any other program.

The killer tool on elements is the time remapping and slow motion tools they kill the iMovie slw motion but for precision titling I like iMovie so each has their own strengths. Clip management is better on Elements and output options are also better on elements. So both can peacefully coexist and powerful pcs are cheap enough to have one just for editing

Says WHO?? You know i mostly read these forums, and after a couple of years i see more and more edits by "professionals". SO many that i started thinking if all these so called professionals had some work, they didnt have time to edit here so much.
Im completley satisfied with Final cut pro X. I saw the commercial from adobe's "new" premiere. What they presented as "new" is in FXP X for nearly 2 years already.
