Review: LumaFusion is a powerful video editor for your iPhone or iPad
If you edit videos on your Mac using Final Cut Pro X or on any device using iMovie, feel at home with LumaFusion, developed by the staff of Luma Touch.
In the same way that Affinity Photo is a water divider for photography on the iPad, LumaFusion for video editing. The application comes packed with a great feature pack, combined with a lightweight and relatively simple to use interface.
When you open the app for the first time, you feel in a complex and simple environment at the same time, with no help buttons on the screen itself. All application tutorials are available on the LumaFusion website and feel close to one dj vu, especially for those who have used older versions of iMovie. LumaFusion has customizable layouts at the touch of a button, which can be changed according to the film editing process.
LumaFusion allows up to six different tracks simultaneously on the timeline, three of which are video / audio and three additional for narration, music and special effects. It is possible to connect the application and access files from various cloud storage services, such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud Drive and OneDrive. The font previewer is a great facilitator for the editing process, helping to define inputs / outputs for each clip.
Following the FCPX's magnetic timeline feature, LumaFusion ensures that all clips will stick together, making the whole process easier and more suitable for the iPad.

Another highlight of the application is the form of gesture control applied to the clip division, not because it is the first to support such a feature, but due to the easy and precise form defined by its developers: a two-finger touch. By double-tapping a clip on the timeline, you'll find a very accurate and complete frame editor, delivering impressive results, the same or very similar to professional video editors available for computers.
There are also tools to undo / redo, duplicate, divide and delete clips. After completing the work, you can share directly on various services (such as Facebook, YouTube, Video, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud Drive and OneDrive), in addition to saving to your own Photos library (Photos) or send to your Mac via AirDrop whether it is just the audio / video or the complete clip, with all the project's metadata and even in different cadence configurations (3,976, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 50, 59.94, 60, 120 and 240).
Much more than just adding items to a timeline, the app makes it possible to edit media properties, adding titles, special effects, mixing audio and more.

LumaFusion, without a doubt, the most powerful video editor for iOS available today, adding great tools for people who edit content while producing it or simply use an iPad as their primary device.
His price is worth it.
