With the help of iMovie, Mac owners can change colours, crop and rotate clips, stabilize shaky images, add smoother transitions, and do other cool things. But the bad news is that its standard version is available only for Mac owners. In this guide, we want to introduce all Windows users to top 5 best iMovie alternatives and remind those who use Mac how to install iMovie and benefit from its rich functionality.

iMovie Alternatives - Top 5 Best Video Editing Software for PC

iMovie is a great option for Mac, but other PC users need an alternative. Here are the five most popular and time-tested video editors that you may like.

How to Use iMovie Step-by-Step?

If after getting familiar with the iMovie alternatives above you still want to stick to this software, be ready that the process of using it on Windows is rather thorny. Here are the most common options that you have:

1. Use Mac Mini. It is a portable computer by Apple which is connected to your Windows display with USB or HDMI. You will also need remote control software. Mac Mini can be purchased online;

2. Run a Mac virtual machine on your Windows. This stage requires a virtual workstation and a rather serious tech background;

3. Rent MacOS on the Internet. Thus, you’ll get a cloud-based PC through remote access or Microsoft DRP;

4. Install Mac on Windows. Such computers are called Hackintosh and allow switching between operating systems whenever you want.

Tips for Optimal Experience

Users can come across numerous comments and complaints that iMovie is running slow, freezing, or even crashing. If you have been in a similar situation, here are a few tips that can help your iMovie run faster:

● Close other active programs that may be slowing your computer;

● Optimize videos by changing their format;

● Delete iMovie folders that you no longer use;

● Clean cache files. We recommend doing this on a regular basis.

Exploring Other Options

5 aforementioned editing tools offer everything you might need to edit videos like a pro. But if you want something else, we recommend turning your attention to software like PowerDirector, Blender, or Avidemux. Your decision should be based on 5 principles:

● Your level of expertise because some tools are not friendly to beginners;

● How much you are ready to spend. There are lots of free editors online;

● System requirements to ensure that you have enough CPU and RAM;

● Available tools and features. You might not need all the instruments on offer;

● Supported formats and resolutions.

Conclusion:

iMovie is a great video editor for Mac. It has rich functionality and multiple benefits, although it doesn’t run that well on Windows and Linux. In this guide, we discussed top 5 great iMovie alternatives which you can start using immediately. With their help, even beginners will create a masterpiece.
