Apple today updated its iMovie video editing app for the Mac to version 10.1.5, introducing a couple of important bug fixes to address issues that have popped up in previous updates.

Today's iMovie update fixes an issue that could add a red tint to video imported from some camcorders and it fixes a bug that prevented some videos shot on the iPhone from appearing in the import window.

According to Apple's release notes, the update also improves the performance and stability of the app.

iMovie 10.1.5 comes nearly six months after the last major iMovie for Mac update, which was released in October of 2016. iMovie 10.1.3 introduced support for the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro, allowing MacBook Pro owners to use the Touch Bar for editing purposes.

Apple has also updated Final Cut Pro, its video editing software for professionals. Like iMovie, Final Cut Pro has received several bug fixes and performance improvements, as listed below:
- Ability to expand the width of the Inspector to view and adjust effect parameters
- Fixes issues with updating older libraries
- Faster redraw of audio waveforms when using clips that are being imported while recorded to disk
- Diamond icon in the Timeline Index to show when the user has modified display of roles in the timeline
- More color options in the Role Editor
- Reveal in Browser correctly displays the location of the original clip in the browser
- Support for Canon Log 3 and Sony S-Log3/S-Gamut3 log processing
- Resolves an issue in which the viewer could occasionally disappear when exiting full screen
- Resolves issues in which Share to DVD could become unresponsive
- Improves font quality of DVD menu and chapter titles
- Improves image quality when creating a DVD
- Enhanced DVD User dialog messages with embedded links to documentation
iMovie for Mac is provided for free to those who purchase a new machine, and it can also be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $14.99. [Direct Link]

Final Cut Pro can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $299.99. [Direct Link]

Please recommit to Aperture Apple!
If they do remake Aperture, I hope they'll allow things as Non Destructible 3rd party plugin edits and smart presets that offset its values based on the image values (so rather then applying a fix set of properties, the software is now targeting to get the look that the preset is aiming for), now that will be a game changer

May be going a bit OT, but what was so great about Aperture that the current macOS Photos app doesn't offer? I used Aperture and found it limiting. You couldn't even search for more than one keyword at a time. Photos is very easy to use and has plenty of editing tools, as well as extensions as of Sierra. So, what is it that Photos doesn't have, but Aperture did?

Disclaimer: I primarily take photos from my iPhone and organize/edit them in Photos using iCloud Photo Library. I am by no means an advanced photographer. However, I did import from several digital cameras and for that, Photos worked just fine – had no issues at all.

If I recall Photos has no versioning support which allows the same photo to be versioned a few times with different setting applied to it, you also don't have the ability to stack adjustment settings which will allow the user to do some real funky adjustments with the photos and if I recall, there's no watermark or customisable watermark feature in Photos. Apple really missed the boat with Photos when they weren't able to make 3rd party plugins work seamlessly and non-destructively alongside Photos. Originally people thought Apple is going for 3rd party support with Photos as it'll allow them minimal commitments and let the devs to create great photo apps for Photos, but things didn't turn out that way.
 

Pow!

Still no AAF export? DaVinci Resolve 12.5.5 is looking better all the time.
Except for that miserable performance issue. Also, editing is slow af compared to FCPX. Maybe I'll also mention that you're forced to use old-fashioned tracks like the other NLEs from the 1990s. But sure, feel free.

Resolve's colour science is way better than what's in FCPX, that's a plus for it. I bring ProRes 422HQ or 4444 files over to Resolve for my grading, but only edit there if there's no other choice.

BTW Juli, if you add content to an article after it's been posted, like you did with the Final Cut information, it doesn't show up in the RSS feed.

Let it go.

Apple is done with Aperture.
This. Moved from being a hard core Aperture user to a Lightroom user a few months after they officially dropped support for Aperture. I've never looked back. Better, faster, more support, more updates. Aperture is dead. Long live Lightroom, lol.

In regards to Photo's. At least in my opinion, to anyone that uses more than their phone for Photos and has an image library in the 10K plus count, mines around 150K, Photo's is a joke; a consumer oriented image browser, nothing more.

I have almost 30k photos, with a mix from my iPhone and from digital cameras/scans. It works just fine for me, so far.

I don't understand. Photos now supports extensions/third party support through extensions. I use an editing extension through Photos and it works just fine.

Yes, but the issue is when you make changes via extension it'll be baked in, not as an additional layer that can be turned off or so.
