This week on we are releasing our newest course to our Mobile Section: LumaFusion.

LumaFusion is fast becoming one of the most talked about editing Apps for mobile devices. Popular with people editing video professionally, it allows you to use multiple tracks, to audio mix and to use video key-framing. Take a look at our new quick start course for LumaFusion.

LumaFusion is a powerful video editing app for iOS devices that takes what iMovie has done and expands on it further, giving you more options and flexibility in your mobile editing.

While Apple's iMovie for iOS devices is a powerful editing app, it does have certain limitations that can constrain what you want to do with your video. Now, there are a lot of other options out there on the app store for video editing apps, but of all the ones we've seen, LumaFusion is the one to beat.

What makes it so great is how much closer to a desktop editing system it is. In terms of basic editing, both are great. Both let you trim and cut clips, add transitions and voiceover. When you get to more advanced editing techniques and features, though, is where LumaFusion pulls ahead.

While iMovie for iOS gives you the option for multiple video and audio tracks, LumaFusion gives you up to three tracks of each. LumaFusion has manual color correction in the app, where iMovie only has filters and basic balance color. Additionally, the app lets you use keyframes for video and audio clips.

One feature that is missing that we hope they add soon is the ability to export full projects. Now, of course you can export your videos from the app, and send them to your favorite social platforms or save them to your device's camera roll, but you cannot export the project file and transfer it to another software or device for further editing -- something you can easily do with iMovie.

Overall, the LumaFusion experience is much more similar to editing you may find on your desktop with Premiere or Final Cut than other mobile device editing apps. The price tag on the app reflects this at $19.99.

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
