Apple releases iMovie 7.0.1 update for iMovie ‘08

Apple today released iMovie 7.0.1, an update to iMovie ’08 (which is version 7.0) which addresses issues associated with publishing to .Mac Web Gallery. It also improves overall stability and addresses a number of other minor issues.

iMovie ’08 makes viewing and working with video as intuitive as enjoying your photos. A built-in library automatically organizes your video, so all the clips you’ve captured and movies you’ve created are just a click away. With its revolutionary interface, iMovie makes it quick and easy to browse your library and create new movies. And iMovie is built for sharing. In just a few steps, you can add movies to your website, publish them on YouTube, and create versions for iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV

iMovie 7.0.1 is available via Software Update and also as a standalone installer.

  1. Currently the Apple Store online is tracking iLife 08 at 2.5 stars out of 5 possible with 312 reviews posted be people with .Mac accounts.

    iMovie 08 is bearing the brunt of the poor review, the rest of the software suite seems to be scoring well.

  2. Mac fan boys/girls, just can’t stand it or admit it when Apple releases a lemon. iMovie 6 is fine, except it’s getting dated on what types of video it can import, but hey, I would hate for the customer to actually be right once and ask for a program with more than 20% of the original features.

  3. Buy and use software that you like. No software publisher is under ANY obligation to EVER upgrade software beyond that which is published. If iMovie 6 was so great, continue using it; it hasn’t lost any of the capability that it had before the release of iMovie ’08. There are two Apple products that allow an upward migration to iMovie 6: FCP Express and FCP. Quite acting like Apple took something away from you.

    Hey fanboi, you bet we will. However, unless Apple keeps updating the capable iMovie 6, chances are good it will eventually BREAK. So chances are we WILL lose the capability, unless we forever enshrine our Mac to the current OS and Quicktime versions.

    And I won’t “quite” acting like anything just because you say so. When a consumer is unhappy about a product, it is their right, no their job, to make their unpleasantness known to the producer of said product.

    Remind me why Apple sends me product surveys on a regular basis. So I can kiss their asses like you do?

  5. Some?
    Sucks to be some, I guess.

    But then, it has ALWAYS sucked to be poor. But don’t whine to me – I’m not poor, but I’ve been there and I managed just fine… And iMove 6 is fine and will ALWAYS be just as fine as ever on the CURRENT operating system.

    Wanna upgrade and keep it fine? Not likely, chump. Deal with it. If you think that’s a “hard knock life”, go right ahead and think it.

    While we all laugh.
