    Well, it's been a month now since hasburyhughesy announced here that there is a new version of iMovie out. Does anyone have any results one way or the other? I'm still on iMovie 9.0.4 on OS 10.6.8, but I'm curious as to what I have to look forward to should I decide to upgrade. Thanks!

    Following your post I checked my IMovies, first time for a while.  My OS is 10.8.4 and IMovie 9.0.9.

     

    I have three large files about 300Mb each.  Two are OK but the third will now not play any embedded music, although it will play embedded sound effects OK.  Restored that particular file from my Time Capsule from various pasts but same problem each time.

     

    I will look into this further when I have time, hopefully there is a simple solution.

     

    Hoping!

    I recently downloaded iMovie on my iPhone 5 and it is telling me to connect to wifi or use itunes to download iMovie well I have done both and it is still not working can someone please help me?

    Referring my earlier post June 22, 2013 I located 2 music files in my iMovie with a yellow triangle at beginning of each track.  I deleted these from the iMovie, opened iTunes and played both tracks through to ensure they were OK.  Then reinserted both back into my movie and all fixed.

     

    Don't know what the problem was but files must have become corrupted somehow.

     

    I would also mention that after I deleted the two yellow triangle music files from the movie the others/remaining songs were able to be heard!

    Hi betaneptune. I went ahead and installed the update because I was also having problems with iMovie running very slowly. Since updating both my OS and version of iMovie, I've not had any more problems. I'm not sure how much of a coincidence this is or not, but it 'seems' to have correcting things. I have created at least a dozen more projects now for work and have had no more disappearing movies.

    I'm glad to hear that your problem is fixed! Thanks for reporting back.

    Responding to Gweggie Boy's post of Jun 23, 2013 1:14 AM (in the time zone I'm getting on my computer).

     

    Glad to hear you were able to solve your problem.

     

    I had a similar problem where a particular music track suddenly disappeared from all iMovie projects that were using it. It caused all sorts of other problems. See https://discussions.apple.com/message/21886296#21886296 for details.

     

    It turned out that the problem was caused by my running of the "'Reorganize files in the folder "iTunes Music"' function, which rearranged the iTunes files and folders.

     

    I copied the track back to the place iMovie thought it should be, and the problem was fixed!

    How can one reasonably use iMovie on something as small as an iPhone, anyway?

    The iOS version is very basic - nothing like iMovie '11 for the Mac. It's quite good for trimming video clips and adding music and titles. It's surprising the results you can achieve when producing short movies with iMovie for iOS on the iPhone (or iPad - even better).

    I have a related problem, - i was working on a a school project that was due in two days. i finish my project a day before it was due. then when i turn it in my teacher opens it up, my project was gone! i didn't delete it or anything, and i also searched my entire trash bin. it wasn't there. it had my prject on it but it said that it was empty. if anyone knows what to do plz tell me.

     

               thanks

    Hi George

     

    Welcome to the club.

     

    Hope you had your project backed up and you can therefore restore it!!!

     

    Otherwise a repeat performance could be needed.  Read this discussion from the start and you will get the drift.

     

    I have not had the problem again but I now have the situation where the new iMovie update does not upgrade all my projects and events.  As a result I have stayed with the older version but now I cannot get all my songs to run - in either version - and they dont have the yellow triangle either.

     

    Something for another day.

     

    I wish you a good outcome with your problem.
