Have you ever wished you knew how to edit videos, but didn’t have the time and money to learn? Maybe in the past you’ve found yourself thinking about how you could combine all those home movies to embarrass your kid at their graduation party. After all, who wouldn’t want to see little Jonny pick his nose in super slow motion?
A little while back I reviewed the newest app for video editing on the iPad, Avid Studio. In the past 10 years it’s become much easier for those without advanced training to edit on their own using software like iMovie and Windows Movie Maker. Now Avid, a company that has been in the professional video editing business for over 20 years, has released this app to bring their product to the iPad.
So, even if you have no experience with video editing hopefully by the end of this article you’ll be able to edit like a pro. If you haven’t bought the app yet I would suggest getting it so you can follow along. Let’s get started!
Even before the iPad was introduced people were speculating over the endless possibilities a powerful, functional tablet could provide. Since then people have found ways to take their businesses on the go with iPads, using them for everything from mobile cash registers to portable photo studios.
However, is video editing a field that can be successfully converted to a mobile model? I must admit, as someone who went to school for broadcasting and worked for a couple television stations, I came into this review skeptical that Avid Studio would be very useful. After all, taking a video editing suite on the road is much more difficult than most professions. Often it requires a computer with advanced hardware, external hard drives to store large video files, and at least two large display monitors.
Video editing has been done that way for years and there’s a reason why it is the preferred method. So, can a well-known name in the business like Avid provide an app that begins to change the game?
