Hi Luma Team,
I just started using your Luma Touch app on my iPAD PRO after being an NLE editor on Final Cut 3-7 and Premiere CC for 10 years. It's a fantastic app and has much more bundled in than I could've hoped.
This really is just a few features away from being a daily use editor for mid-pro level editors who have used NLEs for years!
I can't imagine that these wouldn't be at the top of your lists, but:
1. Audio Scrubbing - The inability to hear audio while scrubbing through footage is almost as bad as flying blind. It's almost impossible to edit frame accurately without audio (since you don't actually have timecode), but audio scrubbing would go a LONG way towards making precision edits.
2. In/Out point on Timeline - Drag and drop editing is great, but being able to put an in and out point on the timeline and either hit the button that instantly drops the footage where you want it (and fill the frame if necessary) and HUGE. It allows for rapid editing for montages and music videos, and speeds up the process for editors where time is a factor. Also, being able to drop that footage on whichever track you like (V1, V2, or V3) would be awesome. Track selection is a bonus. In/Out point placement on the timeline is essential. Side note: is there a reason that "J" of J/K/L jogging isn't available on the timeline? K and L seem to be there, but no J...
3. Eye drop White Balance Color Correction - This is literally a daily tool. Picking white in your frame, and basing that as your white for balance is one of those tools that can't be ignored.
4. Blank Solid/Color Matte - Currently, you have the ability to do black mattes, I think. However, as we're importing jpegs and need backgrounds to match colors, this is another overlooked daily tool that is often taken for granted.
Thanks for the hard work that your team has put into the app. I almost didn't think that I could get actual work done on the iPAD, but after seeing how close you guys are to being a really good basic+ alternative to Premiere or FCPX on iPAD, your app alone made it worth the investment.
Is your team considering pay updates for features? I think you'd be surprised how many people would be willing to pay extra (not monthly) for more pro features if it means sustaining the high-level updates.
Final Question - Is there a way to edit by just using hotkeys? Can you jump between browser and timeline, J/K/L, and insert editing with just keyboard commands?
