So an exciting new feature of iOS 13 and iPad OS is the ability to apply the same adjustments, filters, cropping and other things to your videos as you could do before with just Photos. This has gone a little bit under the radar but I love this feature because being able to apply a filter to an entire video is a pretty big deal and it's so easy to do. So let's start off in the Camera app and I'm going to take a quick video. I'm just going to scan the keyboard. I'm going to record this video and then hit Stop. Now I tap on the little Preview there to see the video. This is all the same as before. But I have the Edit button at the top and before I could trim video and you still see the trimming controls at the bottom. But now you also see editing tools on the left. The same editing tools that you see if you take a photo. Let's exit out of here and instead go into the Photos app. So in Photos I can go and look at the video I have so let me look at video that I took the other day of some birds flying around in the park and you can access the same Edit tools with the Edit button. So you can get to these tools through the Camera app and through the Photos app just as you can with the Photo Adjustment Tools. So you have four sets of Tools here on the left. The first one is just the Trimming tools that we had before. But the other three are the same as the Photo editing tools. The first on here allows you to do all sorts of adjustments to the light and color. You have a full set of tools here on the right and you can see what each one is. Now this isn't new for Photos because we could have done this with Photos before. But it's a big deal to be able to do it for an entire video. Think of it. Every frame of the video needs to be adjusted. So, for instance, I can just go to Exposure here and adjust the exposure of the entire video. You could use the Highlight tool and just to change the highlights or the shadows. I love using these tools in Photos because it really makes some of the things and shadows come out. You can really dim some of the too bright areas of the photo. But now we can do this in video. You can change the Contrast, the Brightness, black point. Then you can do things with the color. So I can desaturated it or heavily saturated it. Change the vibrance of the colors. Play with the warm colors there. I can Tint it to one side or the other. You have other controls like Sharpness, Definition, Noise Reduction even, and Vignette here. You can see the corners there. So once you've done all this I can hit Done and it will apply the change to the video. You can see it says Saving Video. It doesn't happen instantly like Photos. There are a lot of frames in even a short video like this. So just the fact that it does it is incredible. What's even more incredible is just like with Photos it's non destructive. So here we can see my bizarrely edited adjusted video. If I wanted to get back to the original I can go to Edit and you can see I've got a Revert button. So it's non destructive. It saves the original video and it's just applying the effects on top of it just like it does with Photos. Now the other editing tools you've got is you have Filters here. So this is a small set of filters that Apple has. The same set that you have with Photos. So this could be a quick way to make a video more interesting. Now you can see the Warm filter applied here and I can hit Edit and Revert to Original. I can also tap on it to see the original and compare it with the change. So let me go and Revert here and let's look at the Crop tools. So, of course, you can crop something and you don't even have to keep it the same proportion. So I can make a square video here and crop it to a certain section. I can Zoom In and Zoom Out by pinching to get a certain area of the video. So now here's this little square section of the video. Let's Revert again and go into Cropping and note that I have a control there at the top where I can pick something like square 16 x 9 or 4 x3 or go back to original. You can also Rotate or Straighten the video by using that meter there on the right. I can also change Perspective which is really interesting. So you have Horizontal perspective and Vertical perspective. You can see as I adjust the meter on the right it changed the perspective of this photo. This can help if you're taking a photo from a weird angle and you want to kind of correct it a little bit. You can also do some interesting effects like for instance in this video it really does make it look like I'm standing a little bit closer to where the birds are flying over then further away. So, of course, you could have made adjustments like this inside a video editing software before. But I think it's a big deal having this built into the Photos app. As a matter of fact you don't even have this on the Mac. In the Mac version of Photos it doesn't give you these controls yet. Hopefully we'll get those soon.Related Subjects: iPad (153 videos) Related Video Tutorials: Using Multiple Apps At the Same Time With Multitasking In iPadOS Comments: 10 Responses to “New Video Adjustment Tools In iOS 13 and iPadOS” Ruud 2 years ago Hi Gary, Oh July 7th you had a video about managing a Video Library On Your Mac. Here you mentioned that you don’t store any videos in your Photos Library. Will you change your idea about this, now that the editing tools for videos in Photos has been greatly improved? Gary Rosenzweig 2 years ago Ruud: No. I’ll definitely use this to adjust videos right on my iPhone before sharing them. But I don’t see myself going to an old video to make adjustments on my iPhone. I’d be doing that on my Mac anyway. My Photos library would simply be huge if I included videos. It is already huge with just photos. Ed 2 years ago I’ve looked at old videos in photos prior to ios13. The edit commands don’t seem to work (grayed out). Also, do you know if we can apply plugins to the video edits like we can with images? Its greyed out too Gary Rosenzweig 2 years ago Ed: Yes, it appears you need to have taken the video in iOS 13 for this to work. As for other plugins and videos, I’m not sure if that is enabled, but even if it is the developers of the plugins would need to do some work to support it I’m sure. Bert Mullemeister 2 years ago Hi Gary Thanks for your informative videos Many people take videos in portrait mode (annoying) ! Is there a way to change those videos to landscape with either iPhoto or iPad? Gary Rosenzweig 2 years ago Bert: Well, you can rotate and crop with the tools in the Camera/Photos apps. You can rotate and drop in almost any video editing tool tool. But you can’t magically get the portions of the video missing on the left and right. They didn’t film that. So you have to decide whether you have a vertical video framed in a horizontal one (black bars left and right) or you crop in to show only the middle of the video at lower resolution. Gene 2 years ago When one edits a video on the phone does it create an edited copy or is the original video over-written? Gary Rosenzweig 2 years ago Gene: Edits are always non-destructive. You can always go into Edit again and revert. I show it in the episode. gabby 2 years ago Hi there! I have updated my phone to the newest iOS and I like it, one problem is that it stops saving the original pictures and videos if I crop them. If this is an update issues, please let me know how to solve it! Thank you. Gary Rosenzweig 2 years ago gabby: Sorry, I don’t know of any issue like that. Stops saving them to where, in what way?
