While there are plenty of good iOS apps that can already get the job done, Google is now flipping the switch on being able to edit Google Docs documents on the go from mobile devices including the iPad.
When it comes to reading PDF files on the iPad, you have many choices -- including Apple’s own iBooks, which doesn’t cost a dime. But if you frequently need to annotate documents, highlight text or make notes with your PDFs, the choices were quite limited, until now.
Apple’s iMovie and Final Cut give Mac users intuitive tools for editing their home movies from dry, amateurish “Wave to the camera, kids” productions into something that’s actually worth watching. But if you start with cruddy footage, there’s only so much you can do in post-production to improve it. Two of the biggest problems that can’t really be fixed later on are poor sound quality and a jittery camera. So when you’re ready to take your backyard epics to the next level, we offer the following improvements to your movie-making setup. They won’t break the bank, but they’ll definitely improve your work. Next stop, Sundance?
Final Cut Pro is commonly used for editing feature films both big and small, but it’s particularly well-suited to challenging situations, such as the one that film editor Bradly Buecker found himself in with the new Julia Roberts vehicle Eat Pray Love, which opens theatrically on Friday.
You can use Final Cut Pro’s keyframe tools to animate pretty much anything you can see on the screen.

There is however a way to control your object and animate it straight from the Canvas window.

the way the software was used to make Katie Couric “lose weight.”
