Luma Touch, the makers of Luma Fusion have been constantly updating the program ever since it was first announced. Version 2.0 is the 25th incremental update since October 2017.
With the improvements in tablet and smartphones, mobile video editing is starting to gain more momentum. However, we need to pump the brakes a little bit because, despite a lot of newly added functionality, mobile video editing still has a long way to go if you are comparing to traditional NLE systems.
In saying that, it’s not too much of a far fetched thought that eventually we could see people editing on an iOS version of FCPX in the future.
In LumaFusion 2.0 the number of tracks has been expanded to 12. This is double the number of tracks that were previously available.
With 12 tracks, editors will now have access to 6 tracks of video/audio and 6 additional audio tracks, or up to 12 audio tracks without video.
LumaFusion has been redesigned and given a new look. The whole concept behind this is to streamline your editing workflow and make it faster to finish on mobile devices. These UI changes increase LumaFusion’s usability on smaller devices by eliminating hidden tools and creating a larger preview. The new UI also has new icons, layouts, overlay help, and a timeline navigator.
Collaborate in Real-time with Markers
Using the new markers feature, editors now have the ability to add comments to source clips or the timeline, making it easier to communicate changes and leave notes about specific clips.
Improved Media Management
In LumaFusion 2.0 any media used is secured on the timeline so it can’t be “optimized” away by iOS. The media used will then be automatically removed from the device once projects are deleted in LumaFusion.
• Photos library fully supports nested Folders in Album and new Media Types group.
• User-saved styles now include fonts
• Improved performance during scrolling and playback
• Easily trim clips on overwrite tracks that have attached transitions
• Trimming the head of a linked clip will no longer re-link to a different clip, so it’s much easier to do a J-cut
• Dozens of bugs have been fixed and workflow and performance improvements
Luma Fusion is available on the iOS app store for $14.99 USD
