iMovie For Mac Update Quietly Adds Support for New Force Touch Trackpad

Apple updated iMovie for Mac back on March 9th, and with that update, quietly added support for the new Force Touch trackpads found on the new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro and the upcoming 12-in MacBook.

iMovie For Mac Update Gains Support for New Force Touch Trackpad


The new feature was first found by freelance film editor Alex Gollner (via Wired) and is described in an Apple support document.

Gollner said the new feature allowed him to “feel” his way around the iMovie user interface, allowing him to do certain tasks without looking at the screen. He sees the new feature as a sign of the future for Apple apps and devices, using UI elements that he refers to as “bumpy pixels.”

The Apple support document describes the feature as follows:

“When dragging a video clip to its maximum length, you’ll get feedback letting you know you’ve hit the end of the clip. Add a title and you’ll get feedback as the title snaps into position at the beginning or end of a clip. Subtle feedback is also provided with the alignment guides that appear in the Viewer when cropping clips.”

The iMovie for Mac update is available via the “Updates” tab in the Mac App Store for those with the app already installed. (Since it updated on March 9th, it’s likely that it has already been updated. Check the “Updates Installed” list in the Updates section.)

iMovie is available for $14.99 in the Mac App Store. [DIRECT LINK]
