Apple updates Aperture, iMovie with bug fixes

On Tuesday, Apple released updates for its consumer-level video-editing software, iMovie, and its professional photography program, Aperture. Both updates are recommended for all users of the respective software packages and contain bug fixes.

iMovie 8.0.2 addresses two particular problems: one with projects that register as zero kilobytes in size, which would cause iMovie to crash when a user opened them. The second was an issue where some systems could not use full-screen mode. The update is 24.5 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.5.6.

Aperture 2.1.3, meanwhile, improves the program’s overall stability and deals with a few minor problems such as the display of thumbnails upon import and image rotation. It requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or 10.5.3 or later and weighs in at 48.11 MB.

Both updates are available via Apple’s support downloads page or Software Update.
