LumaFusion 1.7 is now available in the App Store. This update includes great new features like search and sort in the library, soft edges and curved corners in cropping, and our new integration with Storyblocks, a great royalty-free library of video, audio and sound effects. A sample of clips are included free, with a low-cost subscription available in-app for access to the full library

Does anyone know if I can either:
1. Use the Apple card reader (I don’t own one - or another card reader) to directly import files in to Luma fusion or
2. Use a card reader to import files in to the Apple Files app?

I would like to go from Micro SD to Luma Fusion as directly as possible and need to avoid Apple Photos as iOS12 no longer imports the 4K 10bit Mavic zoom footage in to photos.

Ideally I want to avoid loading them on to a laptop and then using a USB to import as that’s an extra step needing a laptop. I bought the WD Passport SSD but going to send it back as it is poor and very unstable.

Any help appreciated. Thanks all

One of the BIG downsides of iOS is direct transfers from external storage to a 3rd-party program like Luma.

In fact, the new iPad Pro (with USB-C) will not (currently) interface with any external device. None. Lots of reviewers are complaining about this. Apparently, it is so bad... Adobe created a "shortcut automation" to copy to the Camera Roll... then clone to Adobe... then delete from the Camera Roll.

And I quote from this Verge post:
Quote:
But one extremely important category of devices will definitely not work: iOS does not support external storage. You can plug as many flash drives or hard drives as you want into the iPad Pro’s USB-C port, and nothing will happen. Apple says third parties can write apps to talk to external storage, but out of the box, this $1,899 tablet simply won’t talk to a flash drive.
This is an Apple ecosystem issue - not 3rd parties like Luma.

Hello Loobola,

Yes my pet hate importing media Apple clout you.

The only method I have found that is quick (IP Pro only)

SD card reader, plug into the iPad. Gigs transfer quickly.

Not sure if this helps you in this scenario?

Regards Rob

Ps Loobola,

All files have to be 8 characters or they not recognised by IOS.
So no drag files from pc to SD card, then Plug into IOS.
Example Loobola.jpeg not supported.

Regards Rob.

MyAmazingDiscoveries,

Thank you for the link, I go and check it out.

This sounds disappointing indeed about the version 3.

If you buy let us know please.

Regards Rob

Thanks Rob. Not sure I follow. My understanding is that using a card reader will only allow transferring photos and media to the camera roll ie photos app(and not the Files app). As mentioned ios12 won’t import 10 bit 4K video in to the camera roll / photos app so this does not work for me.

Regards

Like I said before (look earlier in this thread), if you want to transfer files directly to LF, you need to do it through Wifi from a NAS or equivalent (look in LF import menu) or get an iXpand flash drive. If you try and just connect an SD card to the ipad using a card reader, you will just import all your videos to your photos app and that will then upload all of them into your iCloud! You may not want to upload a few 3gb videos to iCloud, but this will happen if you import to ipad in the usual way.


As the thread starter, I spent ages getting this to work and if anyone finds a better and quicker way (that actually works), I'd love to hear about it.

Hi Loobola,

That’s correct all SD imports to photo app.
I am happy to test other ways if you provide say small video of the type your referring to, invite by drop box and test.

Regards Rob

Hi Jay,

Have you tried iXpand flash drive?
How did you get on with this in LumaFusion?
Quick?

I only ask as I have seen ixpand here 128 gigs £30 in Japan.
They said it is no longer supported and they now use leer ibridge size 128 gigs £200 pounds.

I also import from WD drive over wifi.

The grand master knobby Dave made some tests as I did but we only managed less than 10 megs transfer or less - this is due to LAN slow it appears compared to WAN

I think the answer buy surface pro just seen one in a shop does it all plug play import :)

IOS as the man said no a proper computer, that’s the Mac store.

Regards Rob

Loobola,
You’re going to a few issues importing the Mavic Zoom 10 bit footage into LF.

Firstly if you import the footage as a 10bit dlog, the output will need to adjusted for lens distortion. The Mavic Zoom, like my Mavic 2 Pro both produced dlog footage that clearly shows lens distortion and that can’t be corrected in LF. There’s just no mechanism for it.

Secondly, the only way to import this Dlog footage is directly into LF as I described. Once imported, you can apply the DJI LUT and that will colour correct it pretty well but, you’ll still have the lens distortion.

The only sensible way is to use the ‘Normal’ profile on the Mavic and import this in. You won’t need to correct for distortion and you’ll hardly have to colour correct it as it’s pretty darned good already.

This is what I do and it works very well. I’ve been down the 10bit road and even after a bucket load of processing from a desktop PC, no one can tell the difference between it and the “Normal” profile!

Hope this helps!
