    hi there,

    I was wondering if anyone knows for certain that the latest imovie 10.1.10 will run on my macbook pro after I upgraded to Majove?
    I actually need to know if my laptop will be fast enough to play 4K footage?
    I only want to import, trim and export 4K footage, no proper editing. Playback can be intermittant, no problem.

    Here's the specs of my MacBookPro:
    2,8 GHz Intel Core i5
    8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Intel Iris 1536 MB

    You will want to use Final Cut Pro (instead of iMovie), so that you can convert the 4k files into "proxy media" for editing.

    That should make it possible.

    "Straight 4k"? (no proxy media)?
    May be much slower-going...

    Well, if you only want to TRIM the footage (removing footage from the beginning and/or end), you can easily use QuickTime Player to trim your footage, but to export it, it will re-encode the footage. iMovie will do the same.
