What is wrong with iMovie? I have deleted it and reinstalled it. I have made another account and copied all the photos and music to it and as soon as I try to add a photo to a new project it crashes. HELP!!! This was fine until the last 2 updates. What can I do Im on a schedule and I cant find a way to make it work!!


iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Update to latest software. iOS 5.1.1

     

     

    Try rebooting: Hold in home and lock button: ignore red bar, until apple logo.

     

     

    Check google. Put 2012 or June 2012 when googling.

     

     

    Still nothing? Call apple on iPhone at 611. OR 1-800-APPLE

     

     

    If apple can't help, the best thin to do is put your device in DFU mode and then recovery mode.

    Ive rebooted and no luck. I'm not really computer literate and I was terrified while rebooting as I/d never done it before. I cant understand how it can suddenly stop working when its been fine. It coincides with an update from a few days ago. I hope apple come up with something very soon!! General consensus seems to be that its something to do with quicktime but again im only repeating what ive read.

     

    I didnt know if there was an easy fix as Im too scared to start messing with things I know nothing about.

     

    Thanks ronniefromoh for your assistance but Im still shaking haha

    Okay. I understand. Just don't mess with iMovie for a while and wait until there is an update. Thanks!

    Thanks for that. I really hope they hurry because I've got a wedding DVD to do on July 12th and a couple more before that. There's a lot riding on this. I even opened a new user account and and copied all the photos and itune library (I was very proud of myself) and it took me 2 days. All was going well till I dragged a photo into iMovie then that crashed too. Fingers crossed that apple will 'get a grip' soon.

    Are you talking about iMovie on a Mac?

    Or iOS?

     

    This forum is for iPads, iPhones e.t.c.

    What device are you editing on, where is the source footage from?
