  1. Hi Jon,

    I have been recording videos on my iPhone 7 plus at 1080p 60fps. Then i have been sharing them through my iCloud to get them onto my MacBook Pro. Then I put them in my movie maker just the way the above video showed me how to do, but it still will not offer me 1080p. My best option is 720p. Can you help me? Thanks!

  2. I have iMovie 10.1.9 and I don’t get the No Theme thing. Just “New Movie” and “New Trailer”.
