LumaFusion 2.4 update adds support for new iPhone 12 features.
Just a few months ago, Luma Touch introduced version 2.3 of LumaFusion, an intuitive mobile video editor with which filmmakers can create multi-track projects on Apple's iPads and iPhones. Now the company has released version 2.4, which adds support for new features of the iPhone 12.
In the update, LumaFusion offers full HDR support with 10-bit processing as well as support for HEVC transparency and an improved chroma and luma keyer that includes automatic color detection, mask display and better controls for erosion and overflow suppression. The latter are useful tools when you need to clean up green screen footage and other effects-laden sequences.
With the iPhone 12 with Dolby Vision HDR, the added HDR support for LumaFusion is great. The app can create projects in HLG, PQ, P3 and Rec.709 10-bit color spaces. The only downside to HDR content is that you have to watch it on an HDR enabled screen to enjoy it to the fullest.
Additionally, the ability to export H.265 with transparency is a nice touch, and makes it easy to add animation to larger projects. There is also a new Luma keyer with Luma range that offers options for controlling the roll, erosion and edge blur radius.
Other improvements are:
- Automatic project settings: Image aspect, frame rate and color space are automatically set when a clip is added to the timeline
- You can add notes to clips using the new menu button in the library
- The color picker uses the new system color picker in iOS 14
- Support for restricted access to photos in iOS 14
LumaFusion is available free of charge to existing customers. For new customers, the app costs 30 USD in the Apple App Store.
