Apple has released iMovie 10.1 with support for creating and editing movies with 1080p HD video at 60 frames per second, as well as for editing movies with 4K resolution (for full-resolution 4K playback, you’ll need a compatible Mac, such as the latest iMac releases; see “Apple Adds Retina Displays to More iMacs, Updates Input Devices,” 13 October 2015). The update also now enables you to import movie projects from iMovie for iOS (version 2.2 and later), improves the Projects view to more easily find and open your movies, adds the option to hide the Browser while editing a movie, and adds 10 video filters from iMovie for iOS. iMovie now requires OS X 10.10.5 or later. ($14.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 2.02 GB, 10.10.5+)
