Still, it's not hard to humiliate iPhoto, even if we forget that after 8 releases it still can't import a Library.
We know that iPhoto has a nasty video export bug that can result in total data loss. That's bad, but this is at least comparable:
- Import 3ivx MPEG 4 encoded video with AVI wrapper into iPhoto.
- Right click on the Edit button and open in QuickTime Pro.
- Trim the video and save. QT Pro offers to save in .MOV format. Choose that.
- Return to iPhoto. The video you see is the previous version.
I bet QA found this one in early testing of iPhoto '08, but product management decided it wasn't worth fixing.
They should be ashamed.
