After being introduced during his keynote address at WWDC 2010 earlier this month, Apple CEO Steve Jobs quipped that iMovie for iPhone will be available alongside the iPhone 4 “if we approve it.” And approve it they did -- iMovie is ready to rock your new iPhone 4.
This is just some cool news for the internet. Google has added a very basic video editing system to YouTube, allowing users to share their creations and make them even better.
Though it's not a full featured application, the YouTube Editor is entirely useful for combining videos. You can also crop bits and pieces of your videos and add background music from a library of genres hosted on YouTube's servers. The editor allows you to combine several videos and add one background music track.
Just purchased Final Cut Studio and want to get started in editing? Thankfully, your friends here at MacLife.com have you covered. Fire up your software and cozy up to your browser, but be careful: In the words of Bill Cosby, "You might just learn something."
While it may not pack the power of Final Cut Pro, Nexvio’s ReelDirector app for iPhone does allow you to do what seemed impossible just a short time ago: Edit video on your iPhone and share it with friends and family.
Apple’s newest edition of Final Cut Pro polishes an already mature,
dominant video editor. That’s good news, since every Final Cut user
will find clever, thoughtful refinements in version 7 that make life
easier. But the focus on smaller tweaks has one drawback: it’s kept
Apple from some fundamental infrastructure work that’s also needed.
With the next iPhone hardware confirmed from various sources to have video capture capabilities, it's now possible that the next-gen hardware will have its own iMovie like software, enabling video editing in the palm of your hand.
