Avid releases Avid Studio for iPad on the iTunes App Store

UPDATE **** I spent 5 hours playing with Avid Studio on an iPad2 last night. I edited 2 sequences and exported both as 720pHD files no problem. The interface is mostly intuitive but the real PLUS is the frame accurate editing -this is a head and shoulders above iMovie. That said iMovie allows you to record a VO direct to your edit – AVID? No sign whatseover of how to incorporate VO. I tried several attempts to get an audio clip into the library but the only options I can find are A. Send to iTunes and sync (Pointless for field editing) or B Ironically export the edit to the Camera Roll and import into iMovie to VO there!!!! Ill bang up one of the edits on Vimeo later and see what you think.

Truth of the matter is that if you have Avid Studio AND iMovie on your iPad2 you have a Very functional field editing platform for iPhone video.

    I’ve had some hands-on time with Avid Studio for iPad today. It certainly looks very slick and usable with interesting transitions and titles, the ability to do some precise editing, plus it installs on an iPad 1. I’m genuinely very excited by its potential.

    However, for me it has been incredibly crashy. Perhaps this is a failing of my running it on an iPad 1, or perhaps a symptom of it being version 1.0 code. All the same, try as I might I’ve not been able properly to get past editing together a few clips and adding a title, let alone adding transitions, rendering and uploading.

    Interested to hear of others’ experiences – perhaps my install is a bit suspect, maybe it’s just too much for a humble iPad 1, or it could just be version 1.0 teething troubles.

    I’ve been searching and searching for a way to record a vo directly into the app, and find it stunning tang there isn’t one. Come on, Avid – this is a simple fix!
