Please can someone help.
I have just finished my first project, it is 53 mins long and all about Art Therapy. Many images, inserted videos with green screen keyed out, transitions everywhere...have spent every day and night til 3:00am putting this together and it is supposed to be helping me (personally too after suffering depression) to help others thru this lockdown pandemic to get creative.
I feel quite down about it all now so some help would be truly appreciated
My first export was at full 1080p. I shot all the footage on an older iPhone 5s but it all worked beautifully tbh. Never had any crashing or issues while creating and editing, bringing in images and clips from Google Drive and from my photos app etc... I have attached the screenshot of the error message. I also have some iPad filmed screens showing me working in Procreate and I have speeded these clips up a wee bit.
Original settings were 1080p 30 fps
Video Quality I set to Web (6Mbps) bcos it said there wasn't enough space free originally to render out @ Standard. (I had 16GB free on iPad Air 1 when I originally went to process this btw)
For Standard (24Mbps) Export Info was reading;
Space needed for export 20.42 GB
File Size (estimated) 10.21 GB
This didn't work. So I then set the output to lowest on everything, still no joy? And at this time I had more space free.
So, having got the error screen a second time, I hit the Optimise button and waited. It said successfully optimised, but now, since I have made two attempts at different settings AND optimised all the footage and pictures etc.. I seem to have somehow lost LOTS of space on the iPad? In Settings/iPad Storage LumaFusion is now reading 19.02GB of space usage? I am almost 100% positive that before any projects were attempted to be exported, LumaFusion in space usage was around 12GB?
So, even if I now set the export to lower settings, I only have 3GB of space left!? The readings are, '28.9GB of 32 Used' in iPad Storage, so why is this and how can I fix it? Has Fusion rendered 'something' when it failed to export and saved it somewhere, therefore chewing-up my iPad space? If so, how do I find it and how to delete without messing up my project now?
I also have not backed-up anything anywhere, but from my understanding, it copies all files to folders under the app, but, I would very much like to back-up all the project and files to Google Drive (have plenty of free space on there) incase something goes wrong?
If I purchase an external drive, is it possible to export the movie to the drive? Am I just having free space issues on the iPad do you think?
I have ordered a new iPad Pro And Apple Pencil. I am NOT going to let this fist error stop me in my tracks as I Absolutely LOVE the app, it is very easy to us and I want to go in this direction so I desperately need some help here to re-affirm my faith in it for my new work flow. For many years been a Premiere user, even rendered-out some small clips with green bground so I could key them into the movie so it looks like different clips are playing on my iPad on the table in front of me as I talk about my art project (which is what these films will be about, this is only episode 1).
So, How can I free-up space after these projects seemed to NOT export? 'Something' has used up the extra space on my iPad? I want to be able to test a new export now as I have 'Optimised' all the footage/files, but it seems I cant As there is now not enough space free to do anything, not even a very low res export? So any help would be very welcome because I so desperately want to get this project uploaded to a special Art Therapy Group on Facebook and was really hoping to do that in next day or so..
Is it possible to upload/save my project and all files to Google Drive and somehow share this someone so they can do a test export? Just to see if it's an issue at my end? I know that seems like a lot to ask and I certainly don't really want to pass my work out to just 'anyone' to own, so little bit apprehensive about asking tha question and apologies if it sounds bit cheeky.
And finally: (and sorry for long post btw!
If it IS possible to export movies out to an external drive from both this iPad Air 1 iOS 12.4.6 and then also, the new iPad Pro I have ordered, could someone please suggest a decent product?
Thnk you SO much for ANY help anyone can give me, I am feeling pretty stressed about this and that is a shame - all things considered re this project! Because to be really honest with you, I was SO excited about sharing this project even here as I am very proud of how it all looks...I just cant seem to get a finished copy out and that is a shame now..
