So I have some videos which I have downloaded I want to combine all these video clips in one single 5 or 10 minutes Video Clip. What would I require ? And how can I do it on an iPad-3 ?

Download the videos on your iPad. Fire up iMovie and either select all of the videos together or choose a theme and then add the videos as you go through the settings. Easy as pie.

Yes, explored it and looks easy...But didn't understand how to add a theme ? So the theme refers to only the audio in the background audio music right ? You can change that, and that refers to theme ?

Like others have insinuated, this is not the place to sort it out. Watch and iMovie tutorial on youtube and work it out.
Right ! Was just waiting for your words of wisdom. Now that I have been enlightened I will do it. Thank You So much !!

My other problem with using iMovie is though it appears a great tool to work on Video Editing, The functionality of splitting Videos is not all that great unlike other Video Editors out there, where you can be very precise to cut a video from a particular time spot to a particular time spot by which you can be very precise exactly where you want to start and where you want to cut it, that kind of thing is not possible with iMovie isnt it ? I mean it works great in combining two videos, but cutting a video is not all that great.

Forget Lumafusion, even some Free Software available on the Internet gIve that, so it is not all that Precious and Rare Thing !

You can use a reverse pinch gesture to spread out your video timeline and effectively 'zoom in' giving you much greater precision to find the exact point you need to make the cut then tap the icon to split.
More info from Apple:

As for Lumafusion, if you do any kind of serious editing on the iPad then you owe it to yourself to get this app. It actually is a precious thing on the iPad!

Does the Speed Feature not work on Videos downloaded from YouTube lets say if I am working on a Video downloaded from YouTube and I try to add a Speed 2X event to it, nothing happens ? It does not speed up the Video, The video plays at the same rate ? Any observations why cant it speed the Video ?

I haven't used iMovie for a long time on iOS so can't comment why it wouldn't work - I can't think any reason off the top of my head but the answer may be here:

Not sure what is going on then. It may be the format of the video you have downloaded and an incompatibility with iMovie?

I don't think compatibility is an issue is a MP4 format which is supported by the iPad very well.

I was thinking more of the specific formats within your download mp4 file. Do you have video files from a different source you can test with?

Guys, any other suggestions on a specific APP for iPad which can help speed up video 5X times other than iMovie ?
