I want to take an iPad on a trip and be able to edit some short vacation videos on it. The two apps I'm looking at are iMovie and Avid. Just curious to hear if any Premiere users are using either of these apps and what you think about them.
Personally, I cannot imagine editing any video on an iPad, but that is just me. I struggle, when I am editing on my stout 17" laptop vs my dual-monitor workstation. However, some folk are using Photoshop (or similar), to edit Images on a smart-phone, so it IS being done.
I do not know if Premiere comes in a package, that will even work on an iPad, but perhaps others do.
If iMovie is available in an iPad app., I think that I would go with that, since you are talking Apples and Apples.
Good luck, and I hope that someone with direct experience can give you some answers.
This the first video I shot and edited on a mobile device: "The Creators Project." Shot on an iPhone 4S, and edited in iMovie for iPhone. It was pretty cool editing at the bus stop. The interface does take some getting used to, though.
I suggest you do a test before the vacation. You'll be happy you did. The advantage of editing with the iPad is that you'd have more storage. I had to be very conservative when shooting this little test project.
I could not get the full 1080p video output unless I brought it into iMovie on my desktop, then FCP. Finally, I XML'd From FCP into Premire Pro for the string out and to AME for the output. If anyone knows of an easier way, let me know!
On an iPhone, eh? Wow, you are a better man, than I am, and with much, much younger eyes, and more steady fingers!
You should be proud, and you have convince me, that while I might not be a good candidate, younger folk can probably get by well.
