Apple Updates iMovie for Mac to provide support for Older Video Cards
Apple recently updated its consumer-level video editing and management software, iMovie for Mac, adding support for machines running legacy video cards. iMovie for Mac version 10.0.1 comes two months after Apple first announced its major revision to the software, which introduced an all-new look for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, along with several feature additions.
In the recent update, Apple has expanded compatibility with more Macs, allowing those with legacy machines to install and use the app with older video cards. In addition, the new software addresses a reliability issue that would cause issues when updating projects and events created in previous versions of iMovie.
When Apple debuted iMovie for Mac version 10 in September, the company also announced its iLife and iWork suite would go free. Along with the rollout of iMovie for Mac, Apple also debuted iMovie Theater, which allows users to share clips, trailers and movies across devices. The service is based in iCloud and can be accessed from nearly all Apple products, including a dedicated channel on the Apple TV.
Version 10.0.1 of iMovie for Mac comes in at 1.94 GB and can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store.
