My 128 gig iPad pro is getting full very quickly. Is it possible to move all the LF files to my 2Tb external SSD? Not just the videos but the entire application. Can I run LF from the external drive?

Hi timeshiftamerica

Welcome to the forum

No, you can't run LF from the external drive

If you archive each project 'its full media' and put that on your ssd you can delete the original project from your iPad and return to it later

I'm sure it's been requested dozens of times already, but it would be a really, really awesomely wonderful feature if LumaFusion could edit video projects and their source files directly off a suitably fast external SSD, rather than requiring everything stored locally on the iPad/iPhone itself.

This would get around storage issues on iPads with limited free storage space.
This would make it vastly easier/faster to transfer projects between devices.
This would make it vastly easier/faster to bounce between iPads and M1 (and future) Macs where the extra processing power can speed up certain tasks and exporting.

I know you can do full media archives and restores but these processes are mighty slow (at least on my 2018 iPad) and still require enough space on the host iPad to hold the entire project's assets. My iPad is more or less dedicated to LumaFusion these days but 4K footage quickly fills up 128Gb of storage.

Cheers, Ben.

Agreed

You need to get Apple to allow it

... maybe ios16?
