Comments from some of those who selected iMovie as one of their Top Tools in 2019

Previous comments

  • “started to use it for school assignments and personally. Will be using it for work this coming year.” Anon, Canada
  • “Create learning videos easily on your computer” L&D manager, Germany, 2016
  • “Fast learning curve • Inexpensive • Easy to produce quality video presentations” Paul G. Miehl, Consultant, USA, 2016
  • “This year I’ve been created short vlogs and I use iMovie to edit and create them.  You can see the results on my YouTube Channel (please feel free to subscribe – the more I get, I can get myself a vanity URL which is what I’m working towards).  iMovie has it’s own glitches and I’ve had my fair share of problems trying to understand why some videos don’t save as 1080p or trying to understand the difference between ‘library’, ‘event’ or ‘project’ but one step at a time.” Helen Blunden, Consultant, Australia, 2016
  • “As movie editors go, this one’s simple as can be. It has its limitations, especially if you want to edit multiple tracks, but the output is excellent and it’s free on Macs. Jay Cross, 2015 (Honorable Mention)
