I am brand new (one week) to LumaTouch, and this forum. I have an old, almost full iPad Air 2, with something like 3.8 or 4 gb available. My sense is that I can create something about half that big, and then upload/offload when I need to do another project. My goal is short music videos for my friends and family, mostly YouTube for speed and convenience, and max length in the single digit minutes range; usually one to five minutes. On PCs, I am always using “save as” and “cut/paste” things that don’t really “live” in IOS, so there’s a fundamental bunch of homework I need to do, aside from the Luma app. I am experimenting with voice-over for individual instruments, and am encouraged.
Is there a fast, cheap external storage preference for rendered movies? I understand from Luma support that the movie size will still be limited to around half the available ram, and that actually writing to the external options currently supported doesn’t get around that limitation; maybe addressed in the future.
Is there a cheap external mic that works best with this app? I have actually found the built-in mic to be pretty clear, but that may be my own insensitivity to audio quality. I have standard XLR mics, as well as lavaliers with
3.5mm plugs; will a cheap plug adapter let me use them with iPad’s TRRS input?
Do complex title/PnP things take huge amounts of rendering space? I have noticed that plain audio without pictures renders very quickly (of course) and wonder if a few stills as “video” would be almost as fast, since there’d be little constant compression required.
Once rendered, are all movies of a given quality and frame size the same memory per minute?
Sorry if these are inappropriate questions, but I am, as I said, a raw rookie at this.
Thanks, and regards,
