Avid Studio comes to iPad

updated 11:05 am EST, Thu February 2, 2012

Scaled-down app still allows editing, effects

Avid has released a new, scaled-down iPad version of its Avid Studio editing suite. Users assemble video clips in a Storyboard view, and use tools like the Precision Trimmer to make more exact cuts. Completed videos can also contain photos and audio; in every case, media is pulled either directly from an iOS library or an externally connected device.

Making the app more advanced than some alternatives is the ability to produce layered animations, titles, and transitions, including fades, dissolves, pans, and zooms. Videos themselves can be composited, or layered using picture-in-picture options. Audio controls support stock and custom sources, and editing for length, levels, and fading.

Once finished, a project can be exported to Avid Studio or shared online, via methods like email, Facebook, and YouTube. The app costs $5, and requires iOS 5.
