Well, I guess then everybody will be a little disappointed because one of their favorite features wasn’t implemented
You see, I personally don’t care for speed ramping at all. I think it’s just a silly phenomenon like pitch auto tune for music back in the 90s. It will soon be gone, at least you won’t be considered a serious filmmaker when using those cheesy effects, unless you do it very selectively and in a delicate manner.
That’s why I can’t stand all those PeterMcKinnons, MattiHaapojas etc. and don’t watch their channels anymore! I swear, the next time I see a slow-mo or speed-ramped clip of somebody’s legs I’d have to vomit over my new expensive iPad in Full-frame
I am rather happy for those who got some of their favorites implemented in 1.7! It’s just that ‘new feature priority ranking’ didn’t hit YOU this time - next time it will, I am positive...
As for the changes in the UI, I think for many reasons and future advancements some things like e.g. getting rid of the slider increment/decrement function was necessary, however I agree that there is still a bit of size tweaking necessary, which obviously couldn’t be addressed enough in the beta phase. But you could ask some beta tester about this, they are very communicative and will for sure be happy to have a little ‘post release’ discussion with you.
Nudges work quite OK on an iPad now, but maybe it needs some re-thinking whether the two buttons should be positioned aside each other for a quick +/- stepping accessibility or to clip a little bit of both extreme ends of the slider to get some more space for an even bigger area for the nudge buttons etc.
I am sure, this will be addressed in the next point update very soon.
I hope though that you do like the new story block feature and sorting abilities of the whole file import section - that was what I was wishing for from Santa
Also the many little improvements in the settings window layout that reduce the necessity of scrolling etc. and make the whole workflow much quicker now! I am sure that will convince a lot of people to jump on the Luma train in the future.
And above all, the improved stability of the engine and edit sections, or simply remembering where you left off the editor for getting directed just to the right place for your next edit etc. are my personal favorites.
Well, as you can see - I am quite happy and pleased. Although I was hoping for 360 support, double or triple LUT support and one more video track as well as some more little fixes of visual glitches etc.
So I am hoping for the next update not being too far away and eventually getting my goodies.
Enjoy editing with your iPad respectively Fusion and stay positive although the Luma world is not all gold yet
