    Video doesn’t startup within Safari/MacBookPro (clicking the arrow). Ofcourse YouTube works fine.

    Hi David,
    Really appreciate what you’re doing. Your iMovie tutorial got me enthused. The app seems to do everything I want and more. Went to buy it. Read the reviews. Most of the reviewers say it’s pure crap. Who’s right? You or the reviewers. I would bet you are, but there are so many of them.

    The part of the reviews that scares me is all the people who say it’s full of bugs. I get enough of that from Apple software.

    Please help.

    Thanks and best regards,

      Not sure what help you are asking for, but iMovie is free for Mac users, so I suggest to download and try it out for yourself.

        Hi Mark,
        Thanks for your prompt response. iMovie was not on my vintage 2010 macbook pro and cost $15 at the mac store. However, your tip about it being available for free prompted me to check my wife’s 2014 macbook pro. It was there and and available to me free via Family Sharing.

        Thanks for the tip. I am now checking out the program.

      What approval button are you referring to?

    Great class. Is there any way to add transitions between multiple shots with one or two key strokes?

    After spending days with Apples’ customer support and at their store and writing to its CEO. Apple has no tutorial or manual to help me with my new IMovie. Their HELP goes out of date after one year, is made more for geeks, and has few illustrations., .Thank you for showing every move on IMovie’s screen. How can I make sure I have access to your great and complete IMovie tutorial?

    Really good tutorial, I use iMovie on my MacBook Pro to make short movies and tutorials. You should also do a tutorial on iMovie for iPad.

      You can upgrade easily through the App Store under the Apple in the top left corner of your Mac screen. As far as whether you should or not, that really depends on what you use iMovie for – but in general terms, I would always recommend keeping up with the latest versions of software.

        Thanks Mark. I will upgrade. Never knew that was a possibility. I found you through my video problems. Enjoyed the iMovie 15 tutorial (liked it) and have you under my favorites. Look forward to learning more in the future.
