Intro to iMovie Video Editing app for Windows:


 If you're a videographer it's highly possible that you would have come across the iMovie app. The iMovie app is an application that is pre-installed in most Apple devices that you may get and you can use it to make high quality videos that require little or no editing.

If you're looking to start mastering how to edit videos for example, then the iMovie app is most probably for you because it has editing tools that make your videos pop. However if you're a professional, you should probably get a proper camera. The iMovie app is mostly for newbies to videography. That you could make great videos even as a professional with the iMovie app if you know how to tweak it. iMovie app is that easy to operate and it's a completely free app especially if you're an iPhone user. If you don't have it on your phone you can get it from the app store.

In the iMovie app there are a lot of filters, soundtracks, and effects. In fact there are lots of features which basically preserve the qualities of the videos you make. To use the iMovie app you should be with a computer with over 2 gig hard drive space. This is because of the quality and the size of the videos that you'll be making on the app.

There's also a media library in your iMovie App where you can find resources easily that can be used for videography projects you may want to carry out. 

Software Screenshots


Below are some of the features of the iMovie app:

  1. Keyword tag media 
  2. It supports 4k XAVC-S format
  3. Up to 14 trailer templates 
  4. Picture in picture, split screen, sound effects available 
  5. Shortcut edits for editing movies 
  6. Up to 80 soundtracks available for use. 


Why choose iMovie vs Final Cut Pro?

I'd say a great reason is if you have no idea how to begin videography and you're really interested in it and looking for where to start, then iMovie should be on your mind. It introduces you to the basic starter's package and you can do so much with just that. 

Moreso, you have a series of already pre-installed content to model your videos off if you don't know how best to do the project without some form of direction. The iMovie app producers are considerate to have updated all these extra resources.

Advantages of editing videos with the app:

  • The user interface is very easy to manipulate
  • The beautiful things four different kinds of looks on your videos
  • Many audio files or soundtracks are available for you to pick from
  • iMovie provided great movie templates to show you what to do just in case you are out of ideas
  • You are able to colour match for different movie looks



  • It does not support tagging
  • iMovie supports just two video tracks
  • It does not support multicam nor does it have the ability to track motions.
  • Some useful controls and missing because the app has been oversimplified.

  • Used to work great before this most recent update.

    By Klutch54 (Pcmac user)

    I can’t get this app 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 this app off of your desktop, a folder, an external drive, anything. Now you have to drag them into these specific folders inside this app (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 this app, 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.
  • It takes some time to get used to

    By U15 (Pcmac user)

    I would like to give this a rating of 3.5 stars, but there’s no way to do that. My first ever video editing was done on the old version of this app. I found that version to be intuitive and easy to work with. I was kind of excited with this app 10 came along, but when I started trying to work with it, it was so different from the old version that it took me a long time to feel comfortable/confident using it. After working with it for a coupe of years now, I am NEARLY as happy with it as I was the old version. It is still not as intuitive, and seems to take more effort to accomplish what I want to, but in the end I am generally happy with the videos I produce. The sould equalizer leaves something to be desired, and I can’t synthesize multiple clips in the video to have the same sound level, but the videos themselves look good and I can add the special effects I need.
  • Useless for videos of any real length.

    By Sschool (Pcmac user)

    As soon as I begin to create videos of any real length over a minute or two, this app chokes completely. I recorded about an hour of 1080p video with my Sony video camera, imported it to my Mac and tried to edit down to about 10 min. I wasted days letting it process my video files which Windows Movie Maker had 0 issues with in the past. The first thing I noticed is the temp files wiped out about 100gb of space on my drive to store temporary data. When editing for even a minute or so the spinning wheel would begin again. I’d literally fall asleep watching it. My Macbook is mid 2015 model with the video all on an SSD drive and 8GB ram. I made sure it had plenty of memory and CPU available. After weeks of wasting my time with this app, I finally started from scratch on my 2011 Windows PC with non SSD hard drive, using the old Windows Movie Maker software. Within about 2 hours time I had somethng that could be published. My expensive Mac was crushed by my old cheap PC with the free Movie Maker software from Microsoft, in the department Apple use to be known by - Video. My how have times changed. I spoke to customer support, they asked for details of the video files. It was noted. Weeks later I’ve heard no response.
  • Absolutely awful

    By Midi the Veg (Pcmac user)

    Apple just refuses to leave well enough alone when it comes to their software. I used to create band promo videos with EASE with the previous version, imported audio & video, synced everything up, edited clips, and came out with a good final product… NOW?? they have discontinued some of the features and created an entirely new interface. 3 calls to tech support to try and figure it out only to find out it will no longer do what I need it to do. WHY DISCONTINUE USEFUL FEATURES?? Why make an interface LESS user friendly??? Not only that, when I upgraded from the previous version, I lost a good deal of my existing projects… Poof!!! gone, not recoverable. And one of the this app ‘specialists’ at tech support actually told me he doesn’t use this app so doesn’t really know all the features…. omigod!! Apple, I am absolutely furious that, having learned how to use the previous version of this app, I now have to search for and purchase a different software program and learn how to use it simply to accomplish the same thing . They’v done it with iTunes also, every time there’s a major update it becomes less user friendly. If I could just break off from Apple completely after this I would, I am that upset.
