iMovies now has a strong competitor in the niche market. Just a few days after Apple released a major software update for its Final Cut Pro X video editing software for OS X, audio and video production company Avid released Avid Studio, its very own mobile video editing app for the iPad. Avid Studio is an application that allows professional-level video editing straight from your iPad. Essentially, Avid Studio lets you edit video files that are found in your Apple tablet or via the Camera Connection Kit. Video editing with Avid Studio gives you access to professional features such as integration of 3D animations, transitions, generic and soundtrack, titles, layers, transitions and effects, precise cutting, pan and zoom and picture in picture.
This mobile video editing app includes support for storyboard, a tool for editing with high precision “Precision Trimmer” and visual effects including fade out, fade in and dissolve. Avid Studio also allows direct publishing of the editing results on Facebook and YouTube, via email or export in Avid Studio PC suite. Unfortunately, based on feedback, the app had some problems running on the iPad 1. So in order to fully enjoy the unique experience and the benefits of Avid Studio, you will need to use it with an iPad 2. But for iPad 1 owners out there, according to the developers, the minor problem will be fixed soon. Avid Studio is probably the first video editing application that actually helps amateur video enthusiasts create and edit movies on the fly. Pros should find this app useful and powerful as well. The Avid Studio application can be downloaded at the iTunes App Store at a price of $ 4.99. After 30 days, the price will raise to $8.
