i'll try to make what would be an extremely long post to write down, as simple as possible
running this on a ipad pro 11 with stylus ( waiting on my libra keyboard ) have a small setup for the road, love lumafusion, etc.. etc.. all that jazz... .
do have a few suggestions, i'd say some must have been requested before - also, i feel like i might need to explain why i think we could all benefit from some of the below mentioned ( not just me... ) - but we'll see how well i fare. ...
- adjustment layer - i'll start with the obvious one - would love to see a way to apply a LUT to the entire project - an adjustment layer that we could cut would be awesome - if not, maybe at the checkout counter to have an option to just colour everything ? > suggestion >> maybe you could give the 'blank clip' more options, because cutting and pasting everything is just
( speaking of which... )
- cutting-copying and pasting needs an update - sometimes i want to move blocks of footage back and forward and i'm forced to do one by one - when the cuts are super-small it just makes the process annoying af > suggestion >> have a toggle switch that temporary lets you select clips in the timeline, pressing and holding pulls them out and you can drag to where you'd want them dropped, and on drop toggle the switch out. .. .
- three-act structure - ( buckle up, dorothy.. .... ) so, when i'm not passed out fast asleep on my flights, i pretend i work a bit on my personal edits - sometimes, i can't be arsed taking headphones and doing proper cuts, all i want is to start separating some of the footage while it's still fresh - everyone knows stories follow a 3-act structure ( exposure, action, resolution ) and after i dump files from a couple cameras, not all times i have them in that structure > suggestion >> let me split the timeline in three ( or five, if i'm feeling spielbergy and want to add plot-points between acts ) and as i'm looking through the clips i can dump them in either of those timeline buckets - what i'm trying to achieve with this is a quick way to dump clips in the timeline without having to constantly readjust or worry if they'll cancel each other, and make sure i don't forget to use certain clips that have content for more than one act in my story
( last but not least )
- let me hide stuff - LF is powerful and have loads of features and it's awesome and it's great and whatnot. ... . but i think it has a lot of thing that i don't use - some effects might be just be too kiddy and simply not my style - i just cut everything simple > suggestion a >> allowing to hide features you don't really use will speed up the workflow, because you reduce the number of taps to get to what you use.. . .. or... > suggestion b >> let me create my own first menu with the stuff i want to use and with faster access to tools and presets - there is very little options to streamline / customize your own options and i just would like to see a tiny bit more of that.. . . ...
not quite sure how well i explained myself on this post - i have way more suggestions where those came from - love the software blablabla.. .. and i know it's not just "ask this, ask that" - i just bought the fx-thingy. . .. don't think i'll ever use it . ... but it's a way to show support for the project, and hoping you guys keep it real and keep it awesome. . . . ... . let me know if you want me to put this explanation in a video, in case my wall of text sound too confusing. . ..
you all stay awesome
