iMovie update fixes issues with camera recognition, iOS movie importsApple on Tuesday issued an update for its consumer level movie editing and creation software, iMovie, bringing a fix for an issue that would prevent the app from recognizing video cameras connected to a user's Mac.
Along with the camera recognition patch, iMovie version 9.0.9 for OS X also improves compatibility with projects imported from the iMovie for iOS app.
In addition to the two bug fixes, the update includes the usual stability improvements.
iMovie for OS X was last updated in September 2012, with that release patching a problem with third-party QuickTime components would prevent the app from opening.
Apple's iMovie update comes in at 1.36GB and can be downloaded via Software Update or the Mac App Store. New users can purchase the app for $14.99
