I was using iMovie last night. I have a (very) small YouTube channel & I was wanting to edit a few videos to upload. I remember using iMovie back in the day when it first came out. You could plug in your video camera via Firewire to download all your clips. It was simple, straight forward & easy to use. I used it, along with iDVD, to make a lot of great discs of my kids growing up.
Then, at some stage, someone decided to completely rewrite it & there was a lot of criticism. They must have not had much to do at Apple & were afraid of losing their job or something. I couldn’t believe it really. It’s the old case of if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Anyway, last night was just very frustrating. I have to say that iMovie is the most unintuitive, poorly organised, unnecessarily complicated piece of software I have ever used. I had to do over an hour of watching YouTube to find out how to do stuff I wanted to do. And even then some stuff didn’t work properly. Apple should be doing much better than this!
