If media doesn't appear as expected in iMovie for iOS

If media doesn't appear as expected in iMovie, your project might contain media in an unsupported format. Update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iOS 11 to add support for additional formats.

If you can’t add photos or videos from your iCloud Photo Library to an iMovie project, clips in the media library or project appear grey, or the video won't play back, update your device to iOS 11.

After you update, if the clips in a project or the project thumbnails still appear grey, make any change to the project to fix them. For example, tap and hold an affected clip in the project, then release it to resolve the issue.
