I know this is a specific combination of equipment but I’m pretty sure that there are other flyers out there who have this stuff but some of it may well apply to those that are using just LF and the new 2018 iPad pros.
For some time now I’ve been using my lightning-port enabled iXpand drive with my old iPad Pro 2017 and it’s been really, really great. I just used to import h265 vids from my Mavic card, directly to LF and edit.
This was all fab until I went out and bought the new 2018 iPad Pro. I realised that this didn’t have the lightning connector so I bought one of those USB-C to lightning widgets on Amazon (£8) to fix the issue and allow me to copy the files directly to LF from the iXpand drive. This, of course didn’t work, so the only way now was to copy the vids from the SD card from the drone, into the photos app and then use FileBrowser to copy them to LF.
Unfortunately after wasting a lot of time, I’ve realised that ios12 does not currently read H265 video so I couldn’t even see the files to copy them.
So, my only chance now is to copy them directly to LF as I used to, but as my iXpand drive has no usb c, all I can use is WiFi and that takes 22mins to copy a 3gb file!
So, has anyone bought one of the new iPads and is using it with h265 videos? If so, I’d love to know how you guys are getting the vids into LF because I can’t figure it out!
Does anyone know of some usb c drive that can be used with LF directly on the new ipads?
When I Airdrop files to my iPad (10,5 pro) it says sometimes it can not read the file and then I get the question if I want to store it in Files. So I do that and mark the video and ask to open in LumaFusion.
I am also using the WD My Passport wireless pro (HF version) and I can store the files there and open them . A bit slow like 33 seconds for a 400 MB clip. I am waiting for Gnarbox 2.0
I really really wish Apple could open a little bit on the door and let Apps like Lumafusion to get access to my Samsung SSD thru USB-C. This would not be an issue on Android...(but as I am a bit stuck with IOS/MAC I can't leave and also I love LumaFusion that is only mon IOS)
