Crashing when opens

I’ve been using iMovie for a long time now and have had no problem with it up until today when it keeps crashing every time I try to open it. I’m reinstalling it to see if it will help but it’s rather disappointing as otherwise iMovie has been a create editing software for my videos.

This app is so good! It was hard for me at first but I got the hang of it. it’s not the best editor but it’s VERY good for it’s free price! I would totaly recomend this app to everyone. At first it would crash for me a few times, but one you use it more it won’t crash.
Sometimes it can take a while to load while starting up. That may just be my computer though.
I think this is amazing. I love editing with iMovie because it’s so easy and looks so effective!

Keeps Crashing & Audio fails

I use this to edit vidios for projects, and multiple times the audio has completly had a mind of its own, and no matter what i do i cant change it, i've used all the correct settings and everything yet it still either jumps from soft to really loud or the other way around. Its a watse of time, becuase in the end it always crashes and the end result is rubbish.
Recently my whole MacBook Pro also shut down due to iMovie, and i couldnt restart it for a while.
Its ok for a free editing software, but its not the standard you'd think it'd be, since it is an apple product.
