Is it possible to edit media direct from a lightning drive?

I saw an iPad Pro 9.7 32GB for £350 in store with full proper warranty, not an import. I thought I had to buy it, but 32GB really isn't enough these days, I'm surprised... well I'm not surprised that Apple didn't start at 64GB. However I can get by with it if I can just plug a lightning drive into the bottom and edit media from there?

It's Apple so I'm guessing they wont let you (which would suck) however I'm going to ask any ways.

Most applications will copy the file to their applications local space before editing them - meaning the answer is no. (I know of a few that can edit remote files, but not pictures and videos, etc.)

Ah well, for the price I'll just stick with it, I'll probably just use my Mac any ways and use the iPad for Hearthstone.
