A few years ago, the concept of editing videos – especially 4K videos – on a tablet seemed fairly laughable. But with the advent of devices like the iPad Pro, there are tablets out there now that are more than a match for your laptop or computer. And with apps like LumaFusion taking full advantage of touch controls, these days your iPad can even be the preferable option.

Not only does LumaFusion cost a fraction of the price of many desktop editing apps (it'll set you back a mere $29.99/£28.99), but it also offers some seriously tempting advantages, making it one of the best examples of video editing software around. You get the portability of the tablet itself, and if you're using an iPad, you get super precise editing thanks to the Apple Pencil 2. But as with any new software, getting started can feel a little daunting. Here are some of the basics to set you on your way.
