Dang, I forgot iMovie existed.
I remember when Apple used to take time out of their keynotes to brag about iLife, and how easy it is. Now it’s barely mentioned anymore.

When will Apple come out with an iPad pro version of Final Cut?! The 3rd party app Lumafusion is a fully featured video editing app for the iPad that blows away iMovie. Surely the iPad Pro is worthy of a Pro video editing app from Apple!

I’m surprise that iMovie still exists. I’m surprised they haven’t just taken final cut, and turned it into a monthly subscription. $9.99 a month or something like that
NOOOOOOO!

GG Apple for fixing this so fast. I wonder if the FX9 needs a firmware update as well.
On a side note, FCPX timeline scrolling is not smooth anymore, the rubber banding effect seems to be buggy.

I sense intrigue: Final Cut PRO runs on Mojave and newer, while a consumer-grade iMovie requires Catalina and newer. Unless Apple hasn't screwed up badly they don't issue updates for D-1 release where D is a current one following the established pratices, got it. Must've been in pain and torturous insecurity while making a decision before being forced to release the 10th iteration for FCP 10.4 and 7th for Catalina (they were so happy doing with only 5 of those and willing to forget the days of eighth, ninth and eleventh! The first slip was in 2016 with El Capitan and now this again! Damned reality. Gotta be careful in the future)
