IMovie 4K video update released
IMovie for iMac was released today, adding 4K support and video support at Full HD 60 FPS.
With the 10.1 update, which coincides with the launch of the 21.5 ″ iMac 4K, you can edit and share 4K videos on any iMac with a 4K display or Mac Pro with a 4K display connected to it. There is speculation that it will also be possible to work with 4K video in iMovies on MacBooks that support external 4K displays, although there was no official confirmation from Apple this.
In addition to the 4K-related changes, iMovie has also added a few useful additional options and features. Among them:
Create and export 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) movies on compatible Mac computers.
Create and export 1080p HD movies at 60 frames per second for smoother, more lifelike images.

The ability to see additional data when watching videos and photos in the updated media viewing mode.
Search and open movies and trailers in the project view mode.
Browser tabs for quick access to titles, backgrounds, transitions and music when editing a movie.
The ability to hide the Browser while editing a movie.
10 additional video filters from iMovie for iOS.

The last point is of interest to iMac owners. It essentially says that you can view and edit 4K videos on your iMac 4K, but you cannot watch 4K videos in full resolution while editing, as the video will fill the entire screen surface. However, when editing a video on an iMac 5K, you will be able to view the video at the same time at full resolution per pixel due to the extra 5K screen real estate.
iMovie can be purchased for 899 rubles. on Mac App Store The big brother of the program, Final Cut Pro X, costs 17,990 rubles. Final Cut Pro X comes with a lot more serious features for serious purposes. This product is more flexible and powerful than iMovie, but iMovie is a great program, especially for beginners.
