Another important factor is automatic updating – the transition between working on one project across different devices needs to be seamless. Finally, as with any remote workflow, collaboration is key. Successful remote editing relies on being able to share work in progress with team members in different locations, if the only way to share your video is to publish it from your device then you’re going backwards. by press and hold. Apart from that, the tablet version of Forscene allows you to view and review, log, sync pull (stringouts for our US clients) and edit in exactly the same way as the desktop version. You can even export clips using the same publishing settings you have set up for your project. We asked respected industry veteran, Paul Jones, Head of Post at Princess Productions Clearly this is not an easy task, but we think we’ve cracked it. Forscene is the only truly cloud-based professional video editing software available, so we had a range of distinct advantages when we developed the Forscene app to run on iPad and Android tablets. Because Forscene users work on proxy versions of their media – which doesn’t demand huge bandwidth or processing power - we can provide full Forscene functionality on just about any computer or device. With all media and projects stored in the cloud, local space isn’t an issue and the project is always up to date, no matter how you access it. And new users can be working on a project within seconds of being added to the Forscene account. There have been challenges. Accommodating smaller screen sizes while considering that buttons need to be big enough for “fat fingers” is tricky and we’re still working on a solution to make even more space available for on-screen keyboard display. Luckily these issues are resolved by the size of the iPad Pro screen, the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil. It’s a match made in heaven really. Of course, as tablets are completely touch screen driven, there are a couple of differences in how you control this video editing app: zoom buttons are replaced by a two fingered pinch and right click is replaced (Part of the Endemol shine Group), to review the Forscene app and he had this to say “Coming into this I was concerned that the iPad version was going to be a bit of a gimmick, a platform box ticker, but thankfully it’s much more. This is a real workflow tool. Looking to production the app is great for viewing media wherever they are. Give them a 4G iPad and looking at yesterday’s rushes on location is a dream. A sync pull in the bar after a hard days shoot is quick and simple. I like it. A lot.” The full review is available at http://www.forscene.com/blog/video- editing-app-forscene-ipad-review/ Recent Localytics research indicates that 57% of us are likely to use apps even more in the future, mostly because we believe apps will help us manage and connect all the digital elements in our lives. The Forscene app certainly meets those criteria, and editing broadcast video on a mobile app is a crazy enough idea that it may just turn the industry on its head.
