Apple addresses iMovie crashing issue in latest updateIn yet another software update rolled out on Thursday, Apple fixed a number of problems seen in the iMovie consumer-level video editing app for Mac, including random crashes.
iMovie for Mac version 10.0.2 resolves a total of six issues, the most prominent of which being a bug that would cause the app to quit unexpectedly.
The point update also fixes a problem that could cause file sharing to fail and a corresponding issue where the Share button was left unresponsive. Smaller fixes include a situation where project thumbnails would appear blank and an issue that saw high resolution photos displayed with a green tinge.
Finally, along with general stability improvements, Apple resolved a bug that would make Crop, Ken Burns and Map features unavailable on computers using certain languages.
While not a huge feature update, Thursday's release is a welcome patch for those who have experienced app crashes since Apple pushed out the last 10.0.1 version in November. That release added support for machines with older video cards.
iMovie for Mac 10.0.2 is a 1.94GB download from the Mac App Store. Those who do not already have the software installed may purchase iMovie for $14.99.
