iMovie for Mac gets dressed up for OS X Yosemite

Now that OS X Yosemite is rolling out to everyone we're seeing app updates galore start to roll in. Apple's own iMovie is among the first batch and with version 10.0.6, which is rolling out as we speak, things have been given a full makeover in line with the visuals of Yosemite. So it looks pretty sharp.

Beyond the looks, which we love, Apple has also added some new features in there, some of which are again in line with new stuff from Yosemite. Here's the full changelog:

  • Updated look for OS X Yosemite
  • New file export options including Custom H.264, ProRes, and Audio Only
  • Share any video frame as an image
  • Email HD video with Mail Drop when signed in to iCloud
  • Select a portion of a clip in the timeline by dragging across the bottom of the clip
  • Adjustments Bar is always open for easy access to audio and video tools
  • Improves performance on older Mac computers
  • Addresses reliability issues with copying and pasting certain adjustments
  • Support for Indonesian, Malaysian, and Vietnamese
  • This update lets developers create app previews for the App Store, including:
  • Support for iPhone and iPad screen recording videos captured with QuickTime Player
  • 11 animated titles designed to showcase apps in action
  • Share option to easily export for the App Store

The bottom few in particular look great for iOS developers. With iOS 8, Apple finally allowed video previews into App Store listings, so we're sure there's going to be a number of developers out there happy to have an easy way to get them done.

The update is pushing out right now through the Mac App Store and you'll find it at the link below.
