DELETED ALL MY VIDEOS

okay so u know how when you edit something on imovie, your video is stored/saved on the app. WELL, one day while editing a video, a window popped up telling me that iMovie can no longer continuing storing my videos. The only option for me to click was ‘ok’ , so after i clicked ok, EVERYTHING was deleted. As if I just downloaded the app. NOTHING was there anymore. I had so many videos that I worked so hard to edit. Poof, ALL GONE. There was no way I could retrieve them. Maybe iMovie, instead of just having the app store my videos, allow me to create an account so that all my works are stored there. That way I can access my videos via the iMovie account on the app rather than just my laptop. Also, if you know how to retrieve deleted iMovie videos, please let me know ASAP because there are a lot of videos that I edited and didn’t export, since exporting takes a LONG time. Overall, if youre considering downloading this app, DO IT. Its free and it works. I edit all sorts of videos on here and its great. Just be aware and expect this app to cause u some stress and frustration. You pay for what you get. This app is free, there will be A LOT of ‘not-so-pleasant’ times when using it, but i gaurantee you, if you know how to edit and use this app well (its easy to work through), it’ll be woooorth it. BUT IM STILL UPSET ABOUT MY VIDEOS. I WANT THEM BACK.

Used to work great before this most recent update.

I can’t get iMovie to do anything correctly anymore since I updated it. They changed things about it that are very annoying. Before, you could just drag whatever videos or photos you wanted straight into the editing section of iMovie off of your desktop, a folder, an external drive, anything. Now you have to drag them into these specific folders inside iMovie (at least you can create your own) and from there you can drag them into the editing section. Why the extra step? Its literally there for no reason. I wish I could just go back to the old version. Thats not the worst of it either. Im trying to do a time lapse edit, and Ive always had this issue with iMovie, why can I not play the clips at less than 0.1 sec each? hours of timelaps photos need to be broken down do a minute or two, not 10. Even worse though, is that it can’t even get the order correct anymore. I drop them all in and they come out in the completely wrong order. Frames are changing back and forth the entire time you watch it. Then it gets worse! How's that even possible? I don't know. It doesn’t even export what you made. Using the 0.1 second frames (the LOWEST choice I had) it came out to something like 2min 25sec or so. I exported it, it took FOREVER, then all of the sudden it was only the first 7 seconds of my film. Seriously. How could you possibly screw up so many features in one update? Just take it back to when it was simple and usable, PLEASE.

MTS Files won’t Import SOLVED!

New problem to this update, I cannot import any MTS files. It trys to import them as .mov files but they are not, they are AVCHD .MTS files. iMovie crashes every time I try to stop the import which isn’t working. I did a test to see if I have corrupt Sd card or camera isn’t writing files properly but that is not the case. I use iMovie all the time for years and just updated, but also updated to High Sierra as well. Could be a problem of the two together. My iMac is the newest version as well, two months old. My Camera is Panasonic HC-X920, pretty darn good camera, defineatly an apple issue after the update. Please Fix this issue, iMovie is useless if it can’t import AVCHD files. Love the program when it works! One star for this only…….
APPLECARE had me uninstall 'Perian and MacFUSE' from the system preferences pane, and also do a “Command, Option P, R, reset on startup(Hold all these keys on Startup until you hear the sound or the screen flashes. Solved the issue. Pretty common apparently.

Part 2. How to Free Download iMovie for Mac

If you know Apple, you may have an idea of how protective they get about their experience, including the applications from different developers. So it is very common to find out you have to pay for most of the great applications you can enjoy on your Mac or iDevice.

This also applies for iMovie. If you try to download iMovie as a stand-alone application, it will be $14.99 coming out of your pocket. The same happens with the mobile apps, in which case they cost $4.99. Luckily for new Apple users, if you purchased your brand new Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch after September 1 of 2013 you will get access to iMovie and so many other useful applications by Apple with no extra charge. Another requirement is that you need to have Mac OS X Mavericks on your computer or iOS 7 on your mobile device.

Question is: What happens if your device does not meet the requirements set by Apple? If you do not want to upgrade your device to the required OS versions, we do not encourage you to perform any operation on your device as a jailbreak on mobile or downloading tools from sources you do not trust. Instead, you can go ahead and use other programs that offer a similar experience to iMovie and even some extra enhacements. You just have to look for the one that suits you better.

Part 3. iMovie for Mac Review

Do not let yourself be fooled by the simple looks of iMovie. It may look small, but there is plenty of power you can count on to make amazing productions. Some of the highlights on the iMovie features include:

1. Instantly share your creations thanks to social integration

While in other programs you have to wait until your creation is completely ready to share even a slice of it with anyone, iMovie makes it all easier. Just select the section of your video you will be showing the world, click on Share at the top of the application and that's it. You can share it straight to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, via email, or just create a small file for it for you to send.

2. Syncing across devices with iCloud

One of the advantages about the Apple ecosystem is iCloud. With it, you can make sure everything you need is synced between every single device and even apps. iMovie is not the exception, once you are done working on your video on iMovie, it will be available for you to watch on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or even Apple TV in your living room.

3. Also use iMovie on the go on your mobile device

Sure, with iCloud you can watch your videos on any iOS device, but Apple also has available a mobile version of iMovie that you can use in your iPhone and iPad to quickly make your videos even better, without even touching the computer.

4. Add video and audio effects easily

iMovie is much more than cropping and moving things around. But as far as possibilities are open, they will not become a drag. With iMovie you can add video effects like a pro and also make sure your videos have their very own soundtrack, by adding predefined tracks and editing them or just creating your own from scratch.

5. It is all about quality

With HD recording-capable devices everywhere from phones professional cameras, not leaving behind the compact ones, you will need a tool that is capable of handling HD video quickly and efficiently. iMovie is capable of handling HD formats and is optimized to make the best out of your Mac's power into your HD TV.

It can become a very serious issue when not attended to on time but there is always a way of getting past that.

While there, select 'Show Package Contents' and then proceed straight to the 'contents' folder and then 'Mac OS' folder.
