For those times when the full-fledged features of Final Cut Pro are too overwhelming, and iMovie’s massive library of effects just aren’t needed, Shave Video does simple video editing and exporting for the masses. The app’s interface doesn’t use timelines or waveforms, but rather presents the video in plain form for you to edit as you please.
Apple took the stage at Tuesday night’s NAB SuperMeet in Las Vegas to introduce the next-generation Final Cut Pro X, rewritten from the ground up as a 64-bit application -- but details on the fate of the Final Cut Studio bundle are a bit scarce.
Vimeo just released an app to help your browse their catalogue of videos and edit your own. Although it isn’t too good at the former, its editing capabilities are very impressive for a free program, and you should definitely take a look at it if you fancy making your own short films. This tutorial will guide you through the basics.
Without the YouTube app, you’d be unable to watch videos on that site with your iOS device, but Vimeo’s clips have been playing perfectly inside your web browser for a while, so why would they release an official app for it? After all, the app's browsing capabilities of this new piece of software aren’t very good -- it doesn't even have a search field. This is because the main purpose of the app is to let you edit your videos and upload them straight to your Vimeo account.
Apple took to the stage in San Francisco this morning to reassert its dominance over the tablet market with the iPad 2 -- but the real story may be with the company bringing two of its popular iLife components to the new tablet, including iMovie, which promises “very independent filmmaking.”
Ever since Apple completely redesigned iMovie back in 2007 to make it more approachable for novice home-movie editors, it’s received a lot of flak from all those who were using the previous version for more pro-level work. But iMovie was never meant for professionals, and that version (iMovie ’08) was ideal for anyone who didn’t know a thing about video editing. As iMovie ’09 came and went, the howling continued, but with the return of audio editing and more to iMovie ’11, the outcry should subside at last.
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."
