New apps share iOS 7-friendly interfaces
Corel has brought its previously iPad-only mobile video editing app, Pinnacle Studio, to the iPhone. The app allows for complex editing, including the ability to trim individual frames and insert elements like transitions, stills, titles, graphics, fast/slow-motion, and picture-in-picture effects. Quick clip arrangement can be done with the Storyboard, while the Timeline allows for more precise manipulation and trimming.
To bring it up to par with the iPhone, Corel has also launched major update of the iPad app. The interface has been overhauled to better suit iOS 7, and it supports 64-bit processing on devices with an A7 chip or better. Projects can be set to run at 24, 25, or 30fps, and a number of new controls have been added, such as a preview jog wheel, more gestures, and a "rotate media" button. When recording a voiceover, people can continue to listen to a project as long as they have headphones or a Bluetooth device.
Both apps require iOS 7 or later. The iPhone title is $10, while the iPad version is $13. Projects can be transferred between the two platforms.
