iMovie’s new Magic Movie and Storyboard options let you make it look like someone else’s movie.

On the other hand, copying existing art and learning how it works has an honorable history, from art students sitting around sketching a pictorial in a gallery to YouTube videos of disassembling hot songs and recreating them from scratch. But will iMovie’s new features help you learn, or will you continue to use the same old presets?

“I agree that there are more opportunities to see videos that are so similar to each other. But despite the risks of video homogenization, I still think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of these features,” iMovie user Perry Valentine told Lifewire in an email. “One benefit is that more people are now encouraged to discover or try video editing. I witnessed this firsthand when I recently met and saw friends trying to edit their travel videos with storyboard templates for the first time.”

iMovie is kind of awesome. If you want to throw a few clips together, add titles and music, and share the results, this is one of the quickest and easiest ways to do it. If you have a Mac, iPad or iPhone, don’t forget that it’s free.

“I’ve been using Magic Movies and Storyboards for a few days and it’s incredibly easy to get a quick project up and running,” he says. Apple expert and YouTuber Rene Ritchie on twitter. “Try it if you’re new to editing or need to work very fast.”

iMovie 3 is built on ease of use and uses two new tools: Storyboards and Magic Movies to create stunning, polished, professional-looking videos. Storyboards allow you to choose from different types of movies, from cooking to games to how-tos to makeup and more. You can customize the color palette, text style and more, then move it to a pre-made template or storyboard with slots to drag and drop your video clips. Alternatively, you can record directly to the slot.

Each clip comes with instructions on what to include. For culinary storyboards, you can close up ingredients or shoot “interesting colors or textures.”

The result — excuse the pun — is a cookie cutter video that looks like everyone’s.

Magic Movie requires much less work. Are you aware of the “memories” videos automatically created by the Photos app? Only you can choose which images and videos are included. You can also choose a reminder from the library to make it work. Storyboards and Magic Movies are available for iPhone and iPad, but not Mac. Mac iMovie can import already created items.

These options are neat, and if you’re looking for a quick way to make great videos from your videos and photos, this is a great option. But if you only want a little control, iMovie becomes stuffy.

iMovie Storyboard Options.

If you’ve ever tried something as simple as creating a movie with custom transitions between clips or adding continuous subtitles to clips (such as the opening credits for tons of TV shows) then you know how absurdly annoying iMovie can be. . If you enjoy walking on the rails provided by Apple, it will be a smooth ride. In all other cases, you’ll quickly find it’s worth upgrading to a professional app like Adobe’s Premiere or the awesome Lumafusion.

The app takes time to learn, but it’s practically no more than pounding a creatively sculpted pen into iMovie’s stubbornly dumb hole.

But maybe that’s missing the point. Perhaps the problem is not at all absent from iMovie. Perhaps the perception is that iMovie is not a quick preset app for posting me-too videos to Instagram. Because if you want to build something, you’ll definitely prefer a tool that lets you build instead of just copying it. iMovie is really fantastic. It’s just taking unique photos and videos of you to make you look like everyone else.

But will iMovie’s new features help us learn, or will we just keep using the same old presets?

iMovie is kind of great. If you just want to throw together some clips, add a title and music, and share the result, then it’s one of the fastest and easiest ways to do it. And let’s not forget that it’s free if you have a Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

“Been trying out Magic movie and storyboards for a few days, and it’s ridiculously easy to get quick projects going,” says Apple pundit and YouTuber Rene Ritchie on Twitter. “If you’re new to editing or just need to get something done super quick, give it a try.”

iMovie 3 builds on this ease of use, producing great, polished, professional-looking videos with its two new tools—Storyboards and Magic Movie. Storyboards presents you with a choice of movie type, from cooking to gaming to how-tos, makeovers, and more. You can customize the color palette, text styles, and so on, and then you get to a pre-made template, or storyboard, with slots for you to drag in your video clips. Or you can record directly into the slots.

Each clip has instructions on what you should record in it. For the cooking storyboard, that might be a close-up of ingredients or a shot of “interesting colors or textures.” 

The result is—excuse the pun—a cookie-cutter video that looks much like anybody else’s. 

Magic Movie requires even less work. You know the automatically-generated “Memories” movies in your photos app? It’s that, only you get to choose which images and videos are included. You can even choose a memory from your library and let it go to work on that. Storyboards and Magic Movie are available on the iPhone and iPad, but not the Mac, although Mac iMovie can import any you’ve already made. 

Simplistic

These options are neat, and if all you want is a way to quickly generate a nice-looking movie from your videos and photos, then it’s fantastic. But as soon as you want even a little bit of control, iMovie gets frustrating.

If you’ve ever tried to create a movie with custom transitions between clips, or do something as simple as adding successive captions over one clip (like the opening credits in countless TV shows), you’ll know how absurdly annoying iMovie can get. If you’re happy to run on the rails that Apple provides, it’ll be a smooth ride. For anything else, you’ll quickly realize that it’s worth jumping up to a pro-level app like Adobe’s Premiere or the fantastic Lumafusion.

It’ll take a while to learn those apps, but not really any longer than it takes to try to hammer your creatively-shaped pegs into iMovie’s stubbornly dumb holes. 

But perhaps that’s missing the point. Perhaps the problem isn’t iMovie at all. Maybe it’s the perception that iMovie is anything other than a quick preset-based app for putting me-too videos up on Instagram. After all, anyone who wants to create something will surely prefer a tool that allows them to create, rather than copy. iMovie really is fantastic at what it does. It’s just that what it does is to take your unique images and videos, and make them look like everyone else’s.
