Episode 3 – LumaFusion Interview – Video Editor

On today’s episode we have Terri from LumaTouch (luma-touch.com). She is the co-founder, designer and product manager of the wonderful video editing application LumaFusion for iOS. We dive into the many features they pack into the app and what updates are in the works. If you do video editing on the iPad this is the essential app to get. It is the closest thing you’ll find to Final Cut Pro for iOS and it is in active development with some great features in the pipeline.
