Hi all,

Soon to be Luma user here, looking for hardware recommendations.

I edit videos on my 2012/3 MacBook Air (using iMovie), but that's literally the only thing I use it for. To that end, I figured it would be more practical to just use an iPad and Luma.

It looks like all iOS devices are supported, but will I benefit from a beefier iPad? Again, I'll only be using it for video editing and general media consumption, but I do plan to edit/ export 4k. Do I need the iPad Pro? Is the standard model good enough? Thoughts on storage size? Anything else I should be aware of?

Any replies are appreciated?

Thanks!

Hi ROBOSNAIL

You don”t “need” a Pro ... but you will benefit from one
Speed is the main thing and if, over time, more video and/or audio tracks are added to the app then you will be able to use them with ease because of the processing power

I had an iPad Air V1 until recently and it worked fine but it started getting a bit “clunky” particularly when exporting big projects

Video editing is the toughest thing you can do on an iPad. For this use specifically I would get an iPad Pro 2 with 512GB RAM.

I have a 128gb iPad pro. the last generation 9.7 model.
128 is more than enough for me but I delete all footage off of the iPad once I'm finished with it and use dropbox for all my backups.
Unless you want to store your footage on the iPad 512gb is massively overkill, especially if you're only doing light work.

Thanks for the responses all. My plan is to go with the most affordable option, simply because I don't envision using it for much beyond editing the occasional 10 min YouTube video (some in 4k), importing photos from my DSLR, Facebook, and light browsing.


Dave, regarding the quote below, what would you consider "big projects". I've been editing on a 2012/3 MacBook Air all this time with no issues using iMovie.

Interested in everyone's thoughts.

Hi ROBOSNAIL

For me, a big project is one lasting more than 20 mins or about 5 gig in size 1080p

(people are usually bored watching any videos of mine lasting more than 10 mins :D :D )
