Now that there is an iMovie application for the new iPhone, will there be one for the iPad?

That could be really useful for me. I'm still on the fence on buying an iPad, but having iMove could really make a difference.

    er, there's no camera . . .

    I don't need to capture video with it, but rather edit and view video made with a different device (such as a Vholdr helmet cam).

    I can see a lot of times where that would be very handy for me.

    I don't think anyone knows yet if there will be iMovie for the iPad, but I would sure love it. Even though there is no video capture on it, I do have a camera connector, and I would rather do some on the go editing on a screen bigger than an iPhone. Hope it happens!

    Really, really need this apple!
    Great for photos at the moment with the camera connection kit, can import images and movies into photos but I can't do anything with the video.
    Need to be able to:
    1) play 720p video footage
    2) import into move for iPad ;0)) from the camera connection kit
    3) the ability to flip the video 180 degrees
    4) a bit of editing and basic disolves
    5) the ability to publish to YouTube or similar
    6) 60fps support would be nice as well, although even the full iMovie struggles with that!

    Come on apple make the iPad the only solution, at the moment I'm feeling a bit frustrated by various shortcomings.

    iMovie on the iPad may not be practical/possible since the iPad only has 256MB of memory compared to the iPhone 4 with 512 MB. The following iTunes page says it is only for iPhone 4, not the 3G which also has 256MB of memory.

    Has anyone tried to use the iPhone iMovie on the iPad?
  • lllaass Level 10 (175,795 points)
    You can't presently (except maybe developers) use iMovie on the iPad. IMovie is part of iOX4 and iOS4 has not yet been released for the iPad. It supposed to be released "this fall".

    I highly agree. Com on Apple!!! Make I-movie for the iPad. I also agree the iPad is a much better editing system than the iPhone's small screen. Better yet make the iPhone interface via Bluetooth cable to the iPad so I can capture video from the iPhone to the iPad or at least transfer via bluetooth or cable to the iPad from the iPhone.
    Right now I really reallllly need a better video player that can play backwards and forwards video in slow-mo and one frame at a time. I record tennis videos and as a way to show off my video segment there is no easy way to go back and forth in the video using the current video player.

    ReelDirector is very popular on the iPad. I have it and I like it.
