    Not sure where to post this so I figured I would give it a quick shot here.

    I have a YouTube channel where I do product reviews regarding smartphones where I use basic video edits and nothing really complex. I currently use an 2015 11" Macbook Air with only 4GB RAM and its been getting the job done for the edits that I make.

    I ONLY use my Macbook Air for editing YouTube videos in iMovie and maybe streaming Pandora through my sound bar but everything else I perform on my iPhone and I've been doing that for years.

    Planning on picking up an 10.5" iPad Pro and was curious about the apps where I can edit my videos. I know of course iMovie but wasn't sure is there was any other app that would also get the job done. I'm not planning on make this my main PC replacement since I do plan on getting a more powerful Macbook in a few months, but just was curious if anyone else is in this same boat or would know if the device would suffice for what I need it for?

    Since I mainly record from my iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S8, I know airdrop works fine for the iPhone but I guess transferring from the android might get a little hairy.

    Thanks for any advice and feedback!

    Hmmm...or iMovie for iOS? If you use your own custom titling, transitions, multi-camera angles, etc, it won't work out, but if you use only the standard stuff exclusively, then it may work for you. For that matter, any of the others mentioned probably will too!

    Hope you dont mind me asking here. However, I use Final Cut Pro for most of my long video work and sometimes imovie for short video clips which I then upload to our blog via Vimeo. Then again, I also have used iphoto to be even quicker. I am interested in apps for the ipad that come near to Final Cut Pro where I can do editing when Im away from home and then upload to the likes of Vimeo. I noticed you mentioned:

    Pinnacle Studios
    Lama Fusion

    and I took a look at both of these. They look interesting and I was wondering whether somebody could tell me which the better is please. I dont want to pay for something that Im not happy with down the track. Not that either are all that expensive.

    Thank you TechnicallyTee for the original post. Not wasted here.

    I have the exact same question. Anything out there that can remotely compare itself?

    I do have to say though, all of these options listed seem much more powerful than iOS iMovie...

    I have no idea how these apps are to use. This thread is actually the first time I've heard of them. But I did notice that Pinnacle hasn't been updated for over a year whereas Lama Fusion was updated about 3 weeks ago. Just something to be noticed.

    Lumafusion is excellent. Bear in mind I don't use Final Cut Pro, but I DID want an iOS-based video editor that gave me the ability to use multiple video and audio tracks on a conventional timeline. LF does that and much more—in fact, feature wise it doesn't seem hugely different from Screenflow, which is my 'editor' of choice on my MBP as I don't like Adobe and didn't want to fork out for Final Cut Pro as I knew I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost. I can post screenshots if anyone wants them.

    I'm in the same boat. Using FCPX on my Mini right now, but I'd like to edit on the road. Luma Fusion seems like a sold offering, at least until Apple brings Final Cut to the iPad. I've tried iMovie before but I find it too limiting.

    Yes, Cloudsurfer, "if only" Apple would bring Final Cut Pro X to ipad. But thanks to everybody's help I think I shall go for Luma Fusion until that day.

    What I think another concern is how do I manager YouTube tags when uploading a video through the iPad Pro. I feel the native YouTube app did have the ability to manage the tags but now I don't see that option anymore. Any suggestions??

    Luma Fusion all the way. I do all of my video editing there, and prefer the export and render speed over Final Cut.

    I highly suggest Luma Fusion also, best app out at the moment for video editing and their customer service is top notch. I use it to edit all my drone videos and love how I can enhance the colors and add text.

    had pinnacle but that was bought out by luma. luma is the best one out there.

    im a windows user and I have sony vegas. louma is near close to that workflow.

    again highly recommend luma.
