Couldn’t Stay Angry at FCP for IP

I’m a commercial editor who can’t resist working on an occasional project on the iPad. Had high hopes for FCP/IP until I discovered editing from external drives and round-tripping with FCP/Mac wasn’t enabled. But I started playing with the app anyway. Despite it’s lack of features available on FCP/Mac, FPC/IP is a pleasure to use. When I need to include corporate artwork, e.g. lower third supers, I can create them in a vector app, e.g. Illustrator, Affinity Designer, saving as PNG, them import them to FCP. That’s a big deal.

In the mean time, you CAN export your FCP/IP projects (Libraries) created on your iPad to an external drive — then delete the original off the iPad — and later, re-import your library to your iPad and keep working. The process is an extra step, but so far, it works well.

In the mean time, here’s hoping Apple will continue to develop features for FCP/IP at a far, far faster rate than they did for FCP/Mac.

My iPad Pro is finally useful

I don’t know why apple dragged their feet for so long on this, being that the iPad with M1 & M2 chips have been more than capable of running Final Cut, but that being said, I can finally take my video edit workflows over to my iPad Pro and get some use out of it. I was really regretting the purchase when I realized there weren’t many apps (until recently) that really fit my needs and utilized the processing power of the iPad Pro.

I’m so glad its finally here. The interface is familiar and intuitive. I haven’t found the ability to make compound clips yet, but maybe that’s not available or coming in a future update. Also, I’ve only been using it for about an hour — so maybe its there somewhere. But I’m really glad to see that I can easily make mulitcam clips, as that’s what I primarily use it for.

I saw that LumaFusion added multi cam for an additional purchase, which I would have begun to use if this didn’t come out. Glad its here. Great work Apple!

Its good but has some hiccups

It feels a bit clunky at times. Trimming clips is a bit odd because for some reason you can’t just cut a clip (the controls for trimming clips is not intuitive in any way, it’s honestly unnecessarily annoying), it adds a “Gap” in place of the clip you deleted and it’s completely unnecessary. Also separating audio from clips is nonexistent. Instead you have to use a work around by expanding the audio and deleting the video, but if you get rid of the “gap” clip it deletes the audio. If you add clips above the audio it messes up the timeline and you can’t adjust it effectively. With some streamlining of basic features this really could be a great substitute for desktop editing software. It’s usable and a lot better than imovie, but I still use iMovie for basic sequencing of footage and separating/adding audio from clips. I’m definitely going to use Final Cut for a while, but until basic functions are less tedious to execute ill be using iMovie in tandem. I’d say give it a shot, but not to expect a direct substitute for Mac or desktop Final Cut or premiere pro.
