imovie.pngApple today updated its iMovie app designed for the Mac, adding several new features and design tweaks aimed at speeding up the video editing process.

Fast project creation allows editing to begin with a single click, while an easier to find "New Project" button has been added to the Projects browser. Larger product thumbnails, designed to bring the look of iMovie for Mac in line with the iOS version, have been added.

Clicking a video clip will now select the entire clip instead of a range, and there's a keyboard shortcut that enables selecting a range within a clip. There's also support for App Preview resolutions for the iPad Pro and the Apple TV, along with performance improvements. A full list of the changes is below:

- Easy to find New Project button in the Projects browser
- Larger project thumbnails that match the look of iMovie for iOS
- Fast project creation lets you begin editing with a single click
- Clicking a video clip selects the entire clip, instead of a range
- Keyboard shortcut to select range within a clip in the browser and timeline (hold down R key while dragging)
- Support for App Preview resolutions for iPad Pro (1600 x 1200) and Apple TV (1920 x 1080)
- Improves stability

iMovie can be downloaded from the App Store for $14.99. [Direct Link]

iLife is just not what it used to be. Also, Final Cut and Motion need more love.

I'm happy that iMovie is actually getting updates.

However, Apple should probably start updating Final Cut Pro more. :(

I'm in my early 20s and still stuck on iMovie HD '06. It works great for me to update old family 8mm tapes to DVD with iDVD integration. I export them to disk image and direct Kodi to the network share for access to the full DVDs with menus. The older software while limited in functionality did video editing well with very little clutter. It was simple to use.

I remember when iMovie was the king of all apps and the center of Apple's strategy. Gotten so much harder to use and even less powerful over time.

Still using iMove 9.0.9. The new iMovie 10.x is a typical Apple "upgrade": Castrate it, make it dumber but make it prettier and call it an improvement.

I'd rather they make the iOS version more like OS X, rather than making the OS X version more like iOS. Above all, I'd prefer they keep the two versions designed specifically for each OS rather than making them have the same UI.
