Hi, FFF —
I’m not with LumaTouch, but thought I’d pipe in. I just did a test and can export the audio to the Files App in iOS 11; from there you can open it in other apps like GarageBand or other most any other audio app using the drag-and-drop functionality. Here’s how:
1. Select the share feature.
2. Select “Audio Only.”
3. Select “Other App/Airdrop.”
4. Select the settings you want.
5. Tap “Share with these settings.”
6. Once it’s finished rendering, select “Save to Files” (or alternatively, you can open the audio file directly in any of the apps that appear in your share sheet).
Video stabilization is something that folks have asked for, and LumaTouch have said it’s on the feature request list. Video Stabilization is a pretty complex process, and there are other apps available to stabilize video (though nothing beats capturing it from a stabilization device — tripod, gyro-stabilizer, steadicam, etc). A good iOS video stabilization app I’ve used is called Emulsio. (It’s not as good as stabilization you can do in AfterEffects on a Mac or PC, but it’s surprisingly good.)
Masking is definitely on the list of requested features, but based on what you’re asking for, I think you can accomplish it with existing apps. If I wanted to make a binoculars mask effect, I’d open up ProCreate or Autodesk Graphic and make a black 16:9 solid, then delete the binocular shape from the solid. Export the still as a PNG file (preserving transparency) to the camera roll. Then bring the still into LumaFusion and lay it over the top of the video. Viola! There’s a binocular mask over the video. (I’d probably even put a blur on it in LumaFusion, just to soften it up and make it feel more real.)
I think the masking requests that have been made before, though, are more complex; I know that I would like to be able to have just a portion of video playing while seeing other video behind it, or to be able to add effects to only a portion of the video clip. This is the kind of masking that I understand LumaTouch folks are working on.
Video Cropping? Not sure what you’re asking for here, unless it’s trim part of the video off, leaving only a portion of the video playing, with whatever is below it in the timeline visible. If that’s the case, that’s the same thing as the masking request I described in the paragraph above. If not, can you be more specific?
Sound effects. That would
be useful, but you can also go to www.freesound.org
and download sound effects for pretty much anything (many of which are copyright free, or at least free for use in personal projects). You can download them directly into LumaFusion, and they wind up in the “imported” folder. I create my own sound effects for a lot of things, recording in GarageBand and then exporting from there to LumaFusion. I also own an extensive library of sound effects that I’ve imported to my iTunes music library and made into a playlist, so I can access them from LumaFusion by going to the iTunes tab.
LumaFusion has some robust animation tools already in it, but “animation” means a bunch of different things to different people. If you’re wanting to create cartoons or something like that, check out Animation Pro or DoInk. If you’re wanting to do “mograph” style animations (text, shapes, etc), try using the position, scale, and rotation tools inside LumaFusion. (Double tap the clip in the timeline to open the various options there.)
I hope this is helpful.
