What’s a good alternative to iMovie?

iMovie is a handy video editing app for Macs, but it's not available for Windows. And some Mac users may be looking for an iMovie alternative, if they're not happy with the way the program works or need more video editing features.

We recommend you try Movavi Video Editor! It’s a great piece of software with lots of functions and built-in special effects to help you create a video masterpiece from scratch – no matter whether you use a Mac or PC.
