    old grainy movies
    I have digitized some of my old movies to imovie on my iMac.

    They were taken about 35 years ago, as you can imagine they are grainy and not sharp.

    Can iMovie sharpen up old movies, or are there any programs out there that can do this.

    Thanks

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    iMovie has a limited ability to do this.

    1. Select a clip or the entire movie in iMovie.
    2. Right-click and choose "Video Adjustments."

    You'll see your way from there. This will probably only give you minimal improvements, but its a start.

    Photoshop Extended or some other more professional video programs may be needed to really help beyond that. Don't expect miracles, in short.
