A Guide to Mobile Video Editing | Rob Adams


Apple has dumbed down its desktop editing app iMovie (as if that was possible) and made a version for iOS. The iMovie mobile app gives you very basic editing ability and is essentially Final Cut for your phone. The nice thing about this is that you can use airplay to transfer your mobile iMovie projects to your desktop iMovie app or Final Cut Pro for seamless editing of your edited project once back in the studio. You can also make use of a Bluetooth-connected trackpad on iPad for a smoother editing experience and even connect an external monitor that iMovie mobile will recognize as a full-screen display for your video reference while editing. The biggest complaint about this app from the reviews section is its limited clip browser window, which makes importing and organizing clips a bit frustrating.
