    I am looking for video editing for iPhone XR and videos taken on my Canon ES70. I’d also like to be able to edit on my laptop (Windows, not a MAC). Will LumaFusion allow for editing on the iPhone as well as laptop? If there is another editing app that can meet these requirements, please let me know. Thank you!

      Hi Quinea, thanks for reaching out. I believe many users work with Final Cut Pro X on the laptops. Since you are using Windows, I’d recommend checking out Adobe’s new software, Premiere Rush. They launched earlier this year and it is built seamlessly between desktop, mobile, tablet, etc. You can learn more in our article, hope this helps!

    I’m looking for a robust but simple app that allows me to overlap a green screen video atop a background video. Will LumaFusion do that?
