Who uses Video Edit+?
This app appeals to people who enjoy capturing and sharing videos. If you’re looking for an on-the-go video editor with all the essential tools, Video Edit+ is for you.
What makes Video Edit+ unique?
Video Edit+ is the first Video Editing app to truly take advantage of the core technology of the iPhone and respect the size and limitations of editing video on a tiny screen. Rather than simulate the complexity of a desktop editing studio on a small screen, Video Edit+ creates a new, yet familiar editing experience, that optimizes the most commonly used Video Editing features.
We believe that when you buy something, it’s yours to enjoy. We don’t demand that you create a user account, provide us with your your personal info, or hit you with incessant ads like other apps do. When you pay for Video Edit+, you get unrestricted access to its most useful features just the way you'd expect.
What devices will Video Edit+ work on?
Video Edit+ is optimized for the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, iPhone 6 and 5th Gen iPod Touch or newer. We’ll be launching an iPad version shortly which will be a free update for existing Video Edit+ users. Stay tuned.
Which version of iOS do I need?
Video Edit+ requires iOS 6 or later.
Will Video Edit+ modify, delete, or save overtop of my original video clips and photos?
No. Video Edit+ is non-destructive. The app uses copies of your video clips and photos, and will never save over the original.
Can I edit video clips that I have recorded with other devices?
Most of the time, yes. The iPhone, and iPad are a little finicky about which video files you can play. A good rule of thumb is to only edit videos that were shot with the iPhone, or iPad's video camera. That said, there are a lot of video formats on DSLR and point and shoot cameras that work just fine if you import them onto your iOS device.
How many clips and photos can I add to my movie project?
As many as your iPhone can handle.
What is the maximum video length?
As much as your device can handle. Keep in mind that files get duplicated when added to your project and if you render the movie to your device’s Camera Roll that entire file is duplicated again. Video takes up a lot of space so keep this in mind when deciding which size of iPhone you should buy!
