I’m really impressed how this app is sort of like it’s counterpart of the Mac version. Just make an app from another app and make it portable. Example, NES and Gameboy. There used to be a bunch of issues on the app, now the whole app needs a bunch of bug fixing to make the app more special again. I swear to god, there are times were videos and audio get squished up into one place. Another time is where I move one photo or video or audio, the whole project gets moved to the side, making me adjust the project again an again if I do any minor thing. All in all, the app is not perfect, but is still pretty great for people who want to create their own movies or videos to share with their friends and family. EDIT: I believe Apple listened to me, but iMovie has finally fixed most of the bugs I have faced! And to add with that, they included almost all of the music from the Mac version and added green screen effects! Finally!!! We all thank you Apple for fixing and helping other users for this long awaited update!!! 😊
Lets start off with my first reason, this iMovie app does not allow you to have your own music so you cannot download a music track or song that you want unless you get a different app and share the music to iMovie but overall it is a hassle to do that. Second reason, this is also about the music deal, when I want to download a song, which I do from a great app Called documents, anyway when I do that it shows the song picture and then the music. You can detach the audio from the video or picture but you cannot delete the video or picture because if you delete either one of those it deletes the audio, that doesn’t make any sense why it does that. Third reason, it’s overall glitchy. For example when I want to add a picture it doesn’t give you the option to select things, which means you can select multiple pictures. It doesn’t have that Feature only at one period of time you can do that which is at the beginning. Fourth reason, when you want to do a trailer you do not have the option to edit what the trailer music is. For example I am a stop motion artist and I wanted to do a trailer for fun. But the last thing I wanted to do was add my own music, then I found out that you cannot add your own music. Wow that is also dumb.
Please, Please, Please Fix! I only use iMovie and usually love it...however, Since the latest update for my iPad that includes green screen there are a variety of issues making the app difficult to use....I feel very inconvenienced after having to start again and edit an hour long movie three times! Lagging start and editing, Greyed out clips and a black preview screen, glitches....overlays blacked out, some clips fine some blacked out, also after adding new clips to the edit when I press to play the movie it says it’s “downloading from iCloud” but it never does. I have iCloud Photo Library option on “Keep Originals”, and the iCloud option for iMovie off, yet it still tries to download from it. I even signed out of my device and but it gives the same message. If all the clips used in the project are in full resolution on my iPad, I signed out of iCloud AND I had the setting on “keep originals” why is it still trying to download from this cloud?. The other perfectly fine clips also glitch and sometimes say the same message. All the clips ultimately alternate from being fine to acting out and being blacked out and glitching. Movie taking forever to load or freezing..have tried troubleshooting by restarting the movie from scratch...Same thing happening since update.
This app is extremely great. It it so great for comedy videos and vlogs and more. This is the one and only app I use because it’s the best..but, it’s been crashing lately all sudden..while I’m working on my video, it’ll turn the screen black and won’t let me see the video at all. also when I’m trying to split the video it wouldn’t show and when I tap on the clip it will take me back to the clip before. However, when I put sound affects into my clips, when it glitches or crashes, it will place the sound affects further back and not where I want it to be. I love this app but it gets me upset because I end up deleting my hard work project that I put effort in because of the crashes and how everything gets all over the place and messes the video up. I also tried saving my project before it gets worse instead of just deleting it but it told me “fail to export”. Please fix these issues because I don’t like dealing with this situation that kind of gets me upset and just wastes my time and so as other people. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Thanks you.
First!!!! Let’s start with the pros. First, the quality is decent. It’s nice that you can make trailers and post them on facebook or whatever. When your making a movie you just record stuff from your camera and it turns into little clips when you insert it into iMovie. Cons. When you record a trailer or movie, it doesn’t let you delete stuff from your camera. First time I used it I made a trailer for a horror movie with my brother. I watched it and I was impressed. Since the clips of video were in my camera I deleted all of the little clips and figured that I could still watch my trailer. When I went to watch the the next day, a message appeared saying that there are missing films in my trailer and I can’t watch it. That was because I deleted the clips from my camera! That’s just plain stupid, because if you expect me to actually keep 10 minute videos on my iPhone along with over 20 little clips??? That’s the biggest waste of space ever! And don’t get me started on how much storage the app takes up itself! Unless you want all of your iCloud storage to be depleted in 3.5 seconds, I don’t recommend this app. 😡
