good apart for some problems

imovie definitively has a lot more going on than you'd expect, you just need to find those hacks and you can get a whole lot done just as if you had final cut pro. the reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because it says that I need to update it but when I click update it says I need a newer ios version, even having the latest laptop and laptop update, so I guess that's annoying, and also you can only add two layers of images at a time which also isn't really the best. another thing is that there's filters but there aren't really any of the filters like wavy or a tiny head, so if you want to do that you have to export it to your phone and export it back which is kind of annoying. overall, I think that it's a great place to go to, as long as you have enough pacience to find how to make good videos on it.



I felt that iMovie was an excellent tool to help me begin and experiment with editing, but I find it rather annoying how you cannot put two green screens on top of each other. a few other things like that also bug me a bit; but would love to see the app stay simple and add more.

Excellent App

iMovie is indeed an awesome tool for beginners to get a hands-on editing. But, it's rather frustrating to constantly keep experiencing bugs or glitches throughout. Really do hope Apple will minimise their bugs and get them fixed as soon as possible. Overall, still an useful app.
