Like many of you reading this, over the past few years, I have been looking around to see if any iPad software existed that could bring more to the table than iMovie. Until now, I would edit my audio one one app., video on another, then graphics sourced elsewhere. Even so, the process was cumbersome and the results were amateurish or uninspiring at the least. Sure, they were fine for everyday consumer use but I felt there was a disconnect between the professional and consumer world. The prosumer (as we call them) had no real option. Many of us have powerful CPU systems that can handle just about any software that exists but I for one, wanted something simpler that I could use to slap together a personal project on my iPad. Until now, there really wasn't anything available. Sure the big players do make some watered down apps, but they're either ridiculously expensive or lack the features to be truly functional. To be honest, when I first heard about Luma Fusion online, I thought it was another one of those apps. claiming they could compete with the big kids. Let me say this: I am impressed!
Why does my opinion matter? It doesn't, but let me disclose some facts. I work in broadcast television where I'm exposed to some really high-end systems costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. We're not going to pretend this software compares to those systems but for the prosumer world, this app. does bring some amazing stuff to the table. Chroma Keying, video frame rate and audio control for $20? How is that even possible? I defy anyone to find any app. anywhere that has this many features that doesn't hold you hostage with monthly fees or upgrades. I am truly AMAZED!
I mentioned this app. to some colleagues who use Avid, Velocity, DaVinci or Edius as part of their daily routines. They were surprised to hear a full featured and inexpensive app. was even available for the iPad.
If you're looking to shoot weddings, industrial videos or online content for your YouTube channel, this is clearly the app. for you.
Heck, while I haven’t checked, it might even conform to broadcast standards.
