Making Movies on iPhone and iPad

The iPad is a device of content consumption. Macintosh, in all its products- the tower, desktop or laptop - is the creation of content. We know that because Steve Jobs said.

Either he has changed his thinking or iPads 1 and 2 have developed their own ideas and we want to be the building units. And, yes, they are.

The spirit of the iPad, in this sense, the army of developers who are crowded into the iTunes App Store applications with the creative nature.

And Apple did, too.

Last week I talked about GarageBand, the creative application of the iPad, it's great to make music to be used for almost anything, from the background in iMovie to keep the neighbors awake.

Thus we come to the mobile version of iMovie, which appeared on the iPhone 4 and the latest iPod touch. If these screens are small, a remarkable work being done on them, not just record the video, but also for editing in a calendar is only a fraction of the width of a finger.

YouTube has loads of young amateur film made on the iPhone 4, a really nice quality. See examples here, here and here (see in high definition from the London Eye ferris wheel).

But not by Park Chan-Wook, director of one of the most famous films in South Korea, gong to shoot a commercial film, night fishing, iPhone 4 mysterious trailer for this production chilling horror of 30 minutes was also published.

The park used two cameras, a full-time iPhone 4, but after a while 'accessory lenses placed over the phone's camera. Shoot lasted 10 days, had 80 people in crews and pays $ 130,000, and probably will not be edited on the phone. How to make a Movie, we have yet to discover, but should be able to return to its price just out of curiosity value.

Another HD movies and this time Edited in iMovie HD on an iPhone 4 is Ride Hare, created by American Donovan Cook. It was not ordinary, but it was a walk in the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival this month. Watch it on YouTube.

Now if these people to use iMovie 2 iPad, things could have been even better. As apps go, iMovie is really strong. If you have iMovie ($ 5.99 from iTunes), iPhone 4, Update 2 version of the iPad is free.

Given the large screen iPad 2, Apple engineers have developed a new and improved user interface, although not a match for iMovie on a Mac, including Better than the iPhone 4.

Modified by tapping and stroking the screen with your finger is surprisingly accurate and easy, very intuitive. Press an image into the browser screen editing, drag to set the clips you want, drag it to the timeline and press to play in the control panels. If you do not like it, press and drag the clip to the timeline and either returned to the browser or in the trash.

Similar sleight of finger movements used to add video or still images shot on iPad 2 or imported from iPhoto to the browser where they can add to your movie. Music is available from the iTunes library on the iPad (or make your own in GarageBand) and titles and voice over commentaries are also easy to understand.

A fundamental change is automatically added between video clips or images, but can easily be changed via a dropdown menu is selected by pinching the transition.

The video or still images recorded on a digital camera or iPhone can be added using a connection kit aircraft Apple iPad ($ 35).

A help menu available from a button on the screen and another button opens a range of options for the exchange of YouTube, Facebook and other popular "look-at-me" network.

In general, the iPad iMovie 2 is very funny, surprising and powerful, then there is a learning curve is short and mild, mostly using common sense fingers.
