Apple has introduced Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro for iPad, revolutionizing the way video and music creators can unleash their creativity. These apps bring all-new touch interfaces to the iPad, offering users enhanced workflows with the immediacy and intuitiveness of Multi-Touch gestures.
Final Cut Pro for iPad
Final Cut Pro for iPad presents a powerful suite of tools designed specifically for video creators. From recording and editing to finishing and sharing, users can now accomplish all of these tasks seamlessly from a single portable device.
With the new touch interface, navigating the Magnetic Timeline and making frame-accurate edits becomes a breeze with the tap of a finger. The addition of a jog wheel further streamlines the editing process and introduces innovative ways to interact with content.
Moreover, the app offers Live Drawing capabilities, allowing users to draw and write directly on top of video content using the Apple Pencil. iPad Pro users with the M2 chip can even preview footage by hovering the Apple Pencil, without needing to touch the screen.
To expedite workflows, creators can utilize the Magic Keyboard or Smart Keyboard Folio to incorporate key commands. The stunning HDR video viewing and editing capabilities, coupled with the precision of color grading using Reference Mode, are further enhanced by the Liquid Retina XDR display available on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Logic Pro for iPad
Logic Pro for iPad combines the power of Logic Pro with the portability of the iPad, delivering an all-in-one professional music creation app. Multi-Touch gestures enable music creators to play software instruments and interact naturally with controls.
The built-in microphones on the iPad enable users to capture voice and instrument recordings, while the iPad Pro's five studio-quality microphones transform any space into a recording studio.
The integration of Apple Pencil enables precision edits and detailed track automation. Connecting a Smart Keyboard Folio or Magic Keyboard further accelerates the production process through key commands.
