Best editing app. Except...

This is the best editing app i’ve used. But i have 2 problems with it-
First-ken burns being automatically enabled. I would usually take over 200 pictures in 1 project and i need to disable the ken burns in every photo. If there is an option to automatically disable them and I didn’t notice, please ignore this.
Secondly-the photos appear black while i’m editing. I don’t know how to fix it. I uninstalled the app and download it again but nothing worked. It’s bothering me because i can’t actually do my work while I'm trying to.
Thank you for reading.

This app is personally the best editing app that i have used but i have some suggestions. I think it would be nice for iMovie user to be able to move the text for the video to anywhere on the screen because centre and lower is just not enough for me. Also i suggest putting the face effects from photo booth (your other app) onto iMovie so we can add [for example] the twirl effect. Please add those features in future updates! Thank you.

It’s a great app. I use it to edit most of my videos for myself or relatives. I just feel like there needs to be more transitions, or you could make a custom transition.

You could also add layers into iMovie. Which would make things simpler to edit

You can ignore this if you want it was just a suggestion m
