Thursday's iMovie updated brought bug fixes relating to an exporting and sharing issue with media in HD and 4K. The update also addressed stability when importing media.
Apple's other Mac video tools — Motion and Compressor — received minor updates that fixed a bug with XAVC media from Sony PXW-FX9 cameras.
