Great App But One Thing Is Annoying….

I’ve been able to render my long form content for my channel since I got the app earlier this year with my new iPad Pro and it’s been great for the most part. The problem I have is when it’s done rendering a window pops up and asks where you want to save the file but god forbid I tap anywhere but in that box even it will close the box and force me to render the video again. It’s takes 2+ hours for the it to render my video and when that happens it ends up taking up the storage in the iPad meaning if I tell the app to render the video again thinking it will use my previous data it won’t and will use up the space that you current have and when that is done it won’t save at all due to the lack of space. So now I need to delete the app to free up the space and edit my whole video again because when I delete the old projects it won’t ever clear that space. So please can you maybe just not allow the surrounding area to be able to be tapped and close the box and maybe have the cancel button be the only way to close the box that would save me and probably others a lot of trouble.

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!
