  • Apple's iMovie for iOS Updated with Support for 4K Video, 3D Touch and More


    As part of the recent iOS 9 release, Apple seems to have updated its portable version of iMovie with support for editing new 4K video and new UI gestures that are set to be introduced alongside the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro. For those of you who didnít know, the biggest addition to iMovie is 4K video support which is a feature that will undoubtedly come in handy once the 4K-capable iPhone 6s and 6s Plus launch next week. It should go without saying but the feature is set to be restricted to the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and iPad Pro since the new devices are the only devices that tout 4K video support.

    This new editor can also crunch through 1080p video at 60 frames per second (FPS), which is an enhancement over previous iterations that allows moviemakers to edit action content for upload to supporting services such as YouTube. Other device-specific features include 3D Touch gestures for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It seems that Apple is using the pressure-sensitive input method as an integrated shortcut system as it can be used to start a new movie project directly from the home screen.

    As far as the upcoming iPad Pro goes, iMovie is able to cut multiple 4K video streams, which is a processor-intensive task even for desktops. The app also supports a full-height Media Browser, pixel-for-pixel 1080 HD Viewer and keyboard shortcuts which are mapped to the iPad Proís Smart Keyboard. The other features include the following:

    • Option to hide Media Browser while editing a movie
    • Option to disable Ken Burns animation on a photo
    • Redesigned Project Details view lets you watch movies and trailers before opening them
    • Redesigned Video view lets you see more of your library while browsing videos and photos on iPad
    • Improved Inspector controls with easy-to-read text labels on iPad
    • Support for Slide Over and Split View when multitasking with the iMovie Extension for Photos
    • Redesigned Audio browser in the iMovie Extension lets you easily browse and hear music
    • Performance and stability improvements
    • Support for Canadian French, Hindi, and Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong)

    Those of you interested in downloading the update can do so for free if you were an existing user and those of you interested in purchasing the iMovie app can do so for $4.99 from the iOS App Store.

      I wonder who wants to edit 4k video in a device that will require ages to transfer from a 15 year old technology called USB 2.0 used in all 2015 iOS devices.
