Avid has provided an special Avid Studio app for the iPad that is supposed to complement its AVID Studio on desktop PCs. It’s classified as a “prosumer” app and will supposedly do most things desktop editing suites can do, but it really won’t be able to execute on everything. Some downfalls to the new app include: pro-level editors working on a smaller screen, not having the ability to export a Flash video fire and burn video files to a CD or DV and users won’t want to export lots of large, high-def. video files on the iPad because it’ll take up too much space. But at $4.99, the app is pretty cheap, but the price will jump to $8 next month.
