Before the '08 version, iMovie HD was a great editor with an easy-to-use interface in the classic Apple fashion. Since iMovie '08, it has been utter garbage. The interface is barely more intuitable than a switchboard without labels. Still waiting for Apple to wise up and return to making powerful yet elegantly simple applications. Ease of learning and use is what brought me to the Mac, but the lack of these elements is keeping me away from Apple's apps these days.

Great app :) 5 stars from me :) Really good video editor if you don't really need something as professional as Premiere or Final Cut Pro... but I think that even for professional use iMovie can be pretty good, if the project doesn't require some very advanced features or the level of tweaking something like the green screen videos that more professional video editors can have... you can still make a pretty good video with what iMovie offers :) and the UI is really nice and easy to use. I should mention that you should update this page, since Apple made the iMovie free for all Mac users recently, so now it's freeware :) BTW... I really don't understand why are some complaining in the comments that they find it "difficult" to use and/or giving the new version just one star and then writing how they like more some very old versions, even though those versions had less features and were in fact more complicated to use without actually doing a better job... I mean things like having to convert videos to that Intermediate format before editing them, which used to be very slow and used to consume lots and lots more space than an average .mp4 video does... and if you don't remember, iMovie 7 used to cause noticeable posterization of gradients if you were just importing pictures or .mp4 videos and relying on iMovie 7 to automatically convert them to that Intermediate format (if you didn't manually convert them first with something else to a format that iMovie 7 would accept without trying to convert it automatically)... Now, in newer versions of iMovie you don't have to convert stuff to that Intermediate format, you can just drag&drop mp4 videos directly to the timeline if you want and it's there... and you can start editing right away... and editing is not difficult too... the way someone edits in iMovie didn't change that much (some buttons were moved from being in the middle of the screen to the area above the video preview, instead of small icons for backgrounds and transitions under the video preview you now have buttons with text above the library area... some new features were added, the theme is different, but I don't see why would someone be confused by that), if you don't understand some of the new features very well, you don't have to use them all... Apple isn't forcing you to use each and every feature they add... you can still just split the video where you want (with CMD+B or by right clicking on it and choosing that option), delete the parts you don't need by clicking on them and pressing the backspace key, drag&drop some transitions that you like and export it... it's not difficult at all.... Objectively speaking, iMovie 10 is better than iMovie 7 or 8 and I gave you some of the reasons why... and there are also things in iMovie 10 that you just can't do with iMovie 7 or 8. It's a good app and it deserves 5 stars in my opinion :)

Fairly powerful, albeit with a weird UI. If you learn to use GarageBand, then this UI will make sense.

I've been an Apple & Mac user for 30 years, "been there and done that" with most everything out there of any interest to me, and have rarely had a problem I couldn't solve. But iMovie has always frustrated me. While I'm sure it can do a lot of neat stuff, I still can't get the hang of it, and have problems with even fundamental steps, let alone advanced features. It's one of the least user-friendly apps I've encountered, and, AFAIK, there's no really good, thorough user manual, either by Apple, who should have written one (their support site is almost insultingly lightweight), nor by anyone else. 2 stars because it's probably very good (maybe a 4 or 5), but, thanks to Apple, very hard to use well (just barely above zero). PS: I'd be thankful if anyone could point me to a good manual or tutorial.

I kind of agree. It's not very intuitive to anyone that used a Mac for a long time. I've been using them since the early 90s. But then my 12 year daughter has no problem using it! She just figured it out on her own. Already made a few cool MLP videos. lol

I've actually gotten used to it. GarageBand is a similar situation. Seems slightly related to Cubase and ProTools, which I use all the time, but they hide all the advanced stuff, and some you have to find the magic handshake, like copy and pasting a Drummer track into an empty instrument track to enable editing!

We have a Mac Pro with iMovie 10.0.5 and Final Cut Pro v10.1.3 and my husband manages a popular HD YouTube channel using both of these Apple applications. Previous versions of iMovie were difficult to learn and certainly no where near as flexible as these latest releases. The uploaded videos are primarily produced in iMovie then enhanced using the additional features of FCP. We could do everything in FCP but find iMovie much easier. Tip: if you want HD movies on Vimeo or YouTube save to 1080p (FCP) or iTunes (iMovie) then copy off to your desktop and upload. Great quality. Take a look at today's upload: http://goo.gl/1kKupr and judge for yourself. BTW, the outro at the end of the video was produced using Final Cut Pro.

To disable safety mode is a user function found at the bottom of any YouTube page. I can't do it for you. Go back to the url above then scroll down to the very bottom of the page. Look for the 'Safety' tab. If it says "On" then you can't view videos. Click on it and select "Off" then save. Refresh the page and you should then be able to view any YouTube video. Hope this helps!

BTW, we assume Google is doing this to my husband's channel because it is bring operated by an openly gay man (The Crazy Gay Guy). In many states anything that mentions the word "gay" is considered pornographic. It is not a pornographic channel, in fact it is very family friendly. If we were a Jewish or Chinese or African American channel (The Crazy Jewish Guy for example) Google would not block it by forcing the Safety Mode. Google may also be doing it out of retaliation because my husband refuses to allow Google to place ads on any of the videos he produces. Google is NOT very gay friendly and an extremely greedy organization.
