The best thing about the iPad is how powerful it is for such a small device. Even if you don't have an iPad Pro, the other iPads are powerful enough to do things you thought only your computer can do.
Sure, not everyone can just use their iPads as a computer replacement, but your iPad can still do many things just as good — or maybe even better — as any computer, and that includes video editing.
Editing on the iPad might be weird at first, but you get a lot of advantages compared to editing on your Mac. For starters, the touch screen lets you be a bit more quick and precise when editing a video, even more so if you have an Apple Pencil with you. Plus, you can still use a mouse and keyboard, too, if that's what you're into.
Fortunately, whether you want to edit full movies, clips, or a stop motion video; there's an app for you. Read on to discover the 7 Best Video Editing Apps for iPad.
If you're just starting out in the editing world, and want to get some experience without spending a dime, iMovie is the perfect option for you.
Not only does iMovie have everything you need to cover your basic editing needs, but it's also Apple's very own video editing app. That means that it's bound to work better than other apps with Apple devices. So if you have an older iPad, this might be a great choice, too.
Plus, it's very easy to use. In typical Apple fashion, you'll be able to start imposing videos and creating your own movies as soon as you open the app, even if you have little to no experience.
If you're somewhat of a more experienced editor, on the other hand, then this app might not have everything you need because iMovie's features are pretty limited.
If you're only interested in editing to post cool videos on TikTok or Instagram, then Apple Clips is a solid choice for you.
Just like iMovie, Clips is a pretty straightforward app to use. You can record videos vertically or horizontally and edit them within the app. You can add filters, effects, and even your favorite memories. The app also makes it really easy to share your work on any social media site you want. Share it with friends or family using Messages.
Needless to say, this app isn't for everybody. If you're looking for a more serious app that edits more than clips, then you should choose any of the other options on the list.
LumaFusion is one of the most complete and powerful editing apps out there. However, when it comes to this app, you'll either love it or hate it.
Don't get me wrong, LumaFusion is used by both amateurs and professionals alike. However, some people don't like it that much because it does have some limitations that other apps like Final Cut Pro don't have.
With that said, for only $30, you get a professional app that has more than enough to cover all your needs, even if you've been editing for a really long time now.
Sure, not everyone has $30 to spend on an app, but LumaFusion is just a one-time payment. And compared to the $300 that Final Cut Pro costs, this is a freaking steal.
If you're serious about editing and you want to have the best, you won't regret getting LumaFusion.
Alongside apps like LumaFusion, Filmmaker Pro is one of the best editing apps you can get on your iPad.
The best part about this app is that you can get it for free. However, if you want to be serious about your videos, you'll need to pay quite a lot of money.
Free users don't get many of the most useful editing features Filmmaker Pro has to offer. Not only that, but you'll have a watermark on all your videos until you decide to pay almost $30 to remove it. Getting all paid features will cost you around $70.
If you do have the money to invest, however, you won't regret getting this app. It's got a collection of almost 200 different fonts, 30 filters, and over ten transitions for you to use. It also supports a green screen, which is a nice plus. In a few words, Filmmaker Pro is expensive, but it's worth it.
Adobe Premiere Rush is perfect for people who work or want to work in the social media space, especially if you're already using other Adobe apps like Premiere Pro.
This app lets you edit your videos or clips and quickly upload them to YouTube or any other social media. What's great about this app is that it's got cross-platform support. That means you can start working on your computer on Premiere Pro and continue on your iPad to give the finishing touches.
The downside about Premiere Rush is the same one most Adobe products have: It's subscription-based. You can download it and test it for free, but if you're serious about it, you'll need to get a monthly subscription.
Fortunately, it comes with a free plan that's perfect for people starting out. You can try it out for yourself and see if it's good for you.
The GoPro Quick app's name says everything you need to know. This is a video editing app for GoPro users.
Quick was made by GoPro itself, so you know it's got everything you need to edit your GoPro videos in the best possible way. You can keep all your GoPro videos within the app so you can find and share them in an instant. You can also edit your videos by adding filters, creating different sections, and even sinking music to your videos.
Stop Motion Studio is clearly not for everyone. But if you're into starting your own stop motion film, this is the app for you.
Stop Motion Studio comes with everything you need to get your video rolling from animation guides that help you work faster to a simple and easy-to-use interface that'll make stop motion an easier task.
After you're done, you can share your video in 4K right from the app. You can upload it to YouTube or share it via Messages.
