I have just downloaded iMovie on my new Mac (I had it on the old one) and it is not able to open. I crashes as soon as I click. I have also tried to restart, to login with the guest account and to delete preferences holding the option. This is the log:

Back up your machine, and try this: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/imovie-crashes-on-startup-mojave.267438/

Basically, delete the Prographics Framework. If it works, no need to restore, if it does something even nastier, restore and look elsewhere :)

  • "Deleting the ProGraphics.framework seemed to remove all the clip filters and makes iMovie crash when you open a project that uses a clip filter" Is it always correct? – fabio_vac Jun 2 at 9:50
