"intuitive interface lets both the new and experienced people easily".... Wow.... I just had to watch several youtube videos to get - what I'd consider, pretty basic.... changes to my video. First and foremost, I had trouble with 'formats'... seems iMovie didn't support the format I was trying to edit..that took a while to figure out... then trimming video's... adding a freeze frame and changing the duration of the freeze frame.... then trying to get an end fade on the audio for one clip.... these were ALL very problematic.... but then, I wanted to change the size of the display of the clips in the project.... to see some detail on the audio and trim settings.. Who knew?... you had to click on the 'word' settings... next to the slider.. which kinda looks like it belongs to the settings of the slider... not the whole project... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/577acc950d88ed02049205a6f1fe646608141b9e8057221c4c9632fdc943e875.png It's not an icon?... not a hyperlink?... nothing to suggest there were parameters hidden under there.... it wasn't until I watched a youtube video.... and I FINALLY found out, how to enlarge the overall size of my clips.... this all took well over an hour, and I still didn't have a finished video, or a file to share.... on a 2 minute project. No finesse... transitions.... end fades... I gave up and came looking for alternatives. iMovie is a total 'fail' in my book.... and for you to say the the interface is intuitive?.... I had to check when this article was written... iMovie is a dog. Generally, I love my Mac, and things Apple.... iMovie is crap, and iTunes isn't that far behind... don't get me started on photos... thank dog, 'other people' make apple software.... and for those who say, "it's free, what are you whinging about?".... well, I'm pretty sure the $3,000 I paid for my Mac Book would cover this $15 software?... I don't mean to attack 'you'... I didn't call you any names... but since I can't really tell Apple their iMovie software is 'crap'.... I've ended up here. I'll have a look at some alternatives you suggest.
