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?


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

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!

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:

iMovie 6 still fine

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

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.

So lets call it bluff
