VLOG: Editing video on the iPad Pro with Luma Fusion

Ok, so I have to admit, when I first thought about doing this, I was very sceptical. I didn’t think there was any way I would be able to successfully edit 4K at 60fps on an iPad, when I was having issues on my 5K iMac…but here’s what I found!

Needless to say, I am shocked. So…think you’re going to try it?

Just in case you want to, here’s a link to the site to download the app: https://luma-touch.com/

I would LOVE to know what you think!

I just live. For lots of things. Bacon being one. Tech is another. Music is also one. Coffee is pretty important too. Oh and my dog Abbey. Luria rates pretty high on this list too. She's at least in the top 10.

Hi David,

I have a similar workflow, full 4k video 24fps video saved onto a micro sd card and imported into an iPad using the SD card with micro sd card adaptor to lightling dongle. I import the footage into the camera roll and can edit in Luma Fusion. Since I only have a 16GB 9.7inch 2016 iPad Air, I tried uploading the footage to Google Drive. The problem is that Google Drive resizes the video either to 360p or a maximum of 1080p. This is confirmed when I compare the file size of what I uploaded to Google Drive and and compared to the original file size. Google processes the video down to 1080p at best. Have you found any solution?

Did you figure out how to store the 4k footage on Google Drive without it resizing to 1080p? Is hard to store much with the 15gb limitation too. Awesome article again.
