Avid, the Massachusetts-based maker of audio and video editing software and tools, has released a version of its popular video editing application, Avid Studio, for the iPad. Avid Studio allows you to combine video, audio, and pictures and add titles, animations, transitions and more to create polished videos that can be published directly to YouTube or even exported for further editing in Avid Studio for the PC.
This is not Avid’s first foray into the App Store (Avid Scorch, a sheet music viewing app, debuted last June) though Avid has not yet released anything in the Mac App Store. Avid last hit our radar in July when it tried to woo Final Cut Pro users to its Media Composer application via a cross-grade promotion.
Avid Studio debuted in the App Store yesterday and costs $4.99. It requires iOS 5 or higher on an iPad 1 or 2.
