Making movies on the iPad

In a recent post on e-Learning Stuff I mentioned that Avid Studio was one of my favourite apps for the iPad.

Avid Studio – Many people think of the iPad as a consumption device, however with apps like Avid, the iPad becomes a creation tool. This is an excellent and very powerful video editing app. You can either import video or shoot video (using the iPad camera) and then do all the things you would expect in a video editing app. I like Avid’s traditional look and approach to video editing which is different to Apple’s iMovie app.

Corel have recently purchased Avid’s consumer video editing tools and as a result have rebranded Avid Studio as Pinnacle Studio. If you open up Avid Studio you get a pop up saying that it won’t get anymore support and you should download Pinnacle Studio. You might be a little upset as Avid Studio did cost £4.99. Well for the moment at least Pinnacle Studio is free (and is free to everyone).

Pinnacle Studio

So if you are thinking about editing movies on your iPad and want something a little more traditional than iMovie (and is free) then you might want to look at Pinnacle Studio.
