We’re pleased to report that in PC Magazine’s recent review of video editing applications for the iPad, Avid Studio for iPad was awarded Editors’ Choice. Michael Muchmore takes the application through its paces and provides readers with his comments on the interface, basic editing capabilities as well as calling out the App’s montage capability as “what really sets Avid Studio apart.” For all of the detail, check out the full review here or check out a few of the comments below.


“Its [Avid Studio] sophisticated montage capability is what really sets Avid Studio apart when it comes to video editing on the iPad. You can simply drag one clip on top of another to overlay it, and then pinch to resize and rotate the resulting picture-in-picture. Avid also supplies 15 presets that can animate the overlaid video(s); some also add artistic backgrounds.”


My 1 minute 5 second test movie with just one cross-dissolve transition took Avid Studio just 54 seconds to output to 720p, better than iMovie's 58 seconds, and far better than ReelDirector's more than 15 minutes.”


“ . . . if you want the most control, power, and ease-of-use in your iPad video editing project, Avid Studio is the way to go, which is why it's our Editors' Choice.”
