Final Cut Pro for iPad introduces an all-new touch interface and intuitive tools – unlocking new workflows for video creators. A new jog wheel makes the editing process easier than ever and enables users to interact with content in completely new ways, said Apple.
With Live Drawing, users can draw and write directly on top of video content using Apple Pencil. On iPad Pro with M2, Apple Pencil hover unlocks the ability for users to quickly skim and preview footage without ever touching the screen.
Pro camera mode brings even greater control to the creation process on iPad, according to Apple.
Video creators can shoot high-quality video in portrait or landscape orientation, monitor audio and available recording time, and manually control settings like focus, exposure, and white balance.
Final Cut Pro for iPad harnesses the power of Apple silicon and machine learning to speed up time-consuming editing tasks.
With Scene Removal Mask, creators can quickly remove or replace the background behind a subject in a clip without using a green screen.
“Auto Crop adjusts footage for vertical, square, and other aspect ratios, and with Voice Isolation, background noise can easily be removed from audio captured in the field,” said Apple.
