    Ok so I was just wondering this and I could not find much online I'm pretty sure it does not work with the beta but do you think it will when it is officially released to everyone?
    I hope it does as it will be cool to edit on the big screen.

    Yeah, it will work. If there is a good way to get videos onto iPad.

    The problem is that you'll need to have many videos in the iPad in order to be able to create a nice movie, otherwise there's no way you can download or use other videos because it doesn't have a camera.

    No. It's not a matter of OS version, but rather that Apple (like any app developer) can restrict which device can run the app. Maybe next year with iPad 2.

    Good point. If it isn't released for iPad it will either be because Apple doesn't want us to have it or there is no good way of getting video clips to it (like i said before).

    Well what I would do is record with my camcorder then put it directly on the iPad with the camera connection kit. Make my video with iMovie, upload to YouTube. Then put it on pc/Mac then delete from iPad. :)

    Record on a good camcorder then import directly with the camera connection kit.

    HD Videocamera + Camera Connection Kit + iMovie = The Perfect Mobile Video Editing Stuff

    iMovie runs on the last generation iPod touch. I don't see why it shouldn't on the iPad when iOS 4 is out.

    As much as I love the iPad, why would you not do all this work in imovie on the mac in the first place

    It is a very good point but what if your going somewhere,were you want/need to pack light and you fell that a MBP is to much but your need more than your iPhone. Your iPad would come in perfectly when you want to make a video on the go in a situation like this. Also it would just be cool :cool:

    Thanks forthe info it is good to have some confermation on the beta edition. Though I assume if apple were to release it they would upgrade the app so it would iether have a separate iPad edition or just be fully compatible with both.

    My iPad works beautifully w/256mb of RAM. But I wonder if they won't allow iMovie on iPad because on iPhone 4 there's double the RAM. Video editing in HD can be a bit of a hoggy thing.

    I'd kind of at least like the option to try for myself and see how well it edits rather than not be given the chance at all, though. Come on, Apple, please? :)

    I have no problems getting video and photo to my iPad on the go -- it's called a Camera Connection Kit. What I still need to do is buy more photo apps for iPad though -- right now I just have iPhone versions :D

    The fourth generation iPod touch with FaceTime and the camera only has 256MB RAM too. iMovie runs fine on it. Apple even said iMovie will work on the touch.

    Well since I posted this thread we have seen the release of ILife 11 and the GM edition of 4.2 with the public release expected in the next few weeks does anyone have any ideas whether we will see iMovie on the iPad?

    Thank goodness for macrumors and the revelation that the new iPad may be coming out in January.

    I was about to buy the current version and had been lamenting the fact that it didn't have iMovie like the current ipod touch has.

    To top it off a USB port, this may make the ultimate portable blogging device for my travels.

    Man o man if it's true I'm going to be one happy camper.

    I don't think anyone said it would be coming out in January. There will be an announcement in January but they likely won't be available till maybe April, and that's if you're in America, May or June for Europe.
    wouldn't be able to go a day without mine, it's almost part of my right arm by now

    Still no iMovie for iPad now that we are on 4.2.
    This is just absurd, and don't tell me that "the iPad doesn't have a camera", because with my MacBook I import my videos and then use iMovie, and so I would do on the iPad -- do you remember the Camera Conncetion Kit?

    If Apple will release iMovie only for the iPad — and I think they will — just because of the back-camera, it would be a shame.

    I think they probably won't release iMovie for the iPad until the iPad 2 comes out. This will undoubtably have more RAM (which iMovie probably would need), plus better video recording capabilities?
