Apple today updated iMovie for Mac, the company's video editing software designed for consumers of all skill levels. Today's minor 10.1.1 update fixes several bugs, including a problem with YouTube sharing that affected those with multiple YouTube accounts and a problem that prevented White Balance adjustments from being applied to video clips.

Apple says the update also includes stability improvements to streamline the performance of the app. A full list of bug fixes is below:
What's New in Version 10.1.1
- Resolves an issue with YouTube sharing that could prevent sign in for users with multiple accounts
- Fixes a problem that could prevent White Balance adjustments from being applied to clips
- Sony XAVC S clips captured at 100 fps or 120 fps now play correctly
- Resolves an issue that could lead to incorrect display of still images
- Clips are now copied when dragged from the Project Media container to events in the Library list
- Stability improvements
The 10.1.1 update follows the October release of the major iMovie 10.1 update, which introduced support for 4K video editing and 1080p videos at 60 frames per second.

iMovie can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $14.99, but Apple also provides the software free with a new Mac purchase and has done so for several years now. [Direct Link]

This app's output is weird. It totally changes the aspect view of my iPhone HD vids no matter which output type I select. It flips my aspect every time. Just keep the video the way it was in the first place!

So tell me, what has been butchered? I comfortably use the newest version, it suits me well for my needs. And if you want more stuff, use Final Cut... Has improved a great deal lately....
They butchered Final Cut as well, though. I don't know about missing features. I just find the interface impossible to deal with. Adobe Premier seems to work like the old Final Cut, so that's probably what I'd upgrade to if I ever really got back into video editing.

I really hope Apple starts innovating again with useful features. I would LOVE to see something like Morph Cut.

I used to use iMovie latest and thought it was great, I now use FCPX which blows iMovie out of the water.
The one feature that was scratched from iMovie was keywording, this was very much to the detriment of trying to put together a short film.

However as cut and shift editors go I think the latest iMovie is just swell.

Does any one still use this?

I remember back in like 2001-2 it was mind blowing to be able to edit your own videos and rip your own DVD menus.

Now video is all over the place an no one cares. Seems like the iSuite will be walking the way of AppleWorks

Of course I use it; to make my family holiday movies, for example. Great program!

For the average user, it's a neat little program right there on the task bar.

Have they added back the feature to split events to allow portions to be deleted to free up disk space?

Is it really fair to compare free software with $300 software, though?

iMovie is basically to Mac users what Windows Movie Maker was to PC users. A quick and easy way to put together some video clips. It's not meant to be Final Cut or Premiere level software.

I used iMovie for years up to version 8 then just as it was becoming of real use with a good feature repertoire Apple slashed it back to a Mickey Mouse version. I am guessing to eliminate competition with FCP. I seem to remember a full length feature film was edited on the old iMovie. Then the idiots in Appleland messed up FCP and have had to back track to repair their tattered reputation among professionals which they still have not done. Then they did the same thing to the Mac Mini. I am in the market for a Mac Pro and am wondering what stupidity they will foist on that. My inclination is to buy one with the current Thunderbolt screen before the "update".
Any solid confidence in Apple's ability to read the clients needs and respond with integrity and loyalty has evaporated.

I could be wrong-or old school- but the old iMovie was intuitive and powerful. The new iMovie is confusing to use and I hear they stripped a lot of the features out. Its a rare occasion where the older was better.

The old one took ages to export a movie, the new one it is dramatically faster. I personally do not miss any features, I have all I need. Use is not more confusing than the older, just a bit different interface to get used to.

For one thing, it can’t keep separate project files; it just lumps them all together in a singe library file. It also doesn’t have the ability to show the timeline on one monitor and play the movie on the other.
[doublepost=1453482941][/doublepost]The same goes for iWork. iWork ’09 was really nice, but the newer version is stripped down, optimized for the iPad. The main problem is that the toolbar has been moved from the top and turned into a sidebar.

The latest iMovie looks good, but it killed my 2012 Mac mini, €450 repair bill, so I'm only using Videopad
