Who is this course for?

  • Anyone wanting to learn how to use LumaFusion for color correcting and grading video footage on their iPad and/or iPhone.
  • Please note… This is NOT an editing course. While we do include some general aspects of using the app, we assume you already know the basics of editing in LumaFusion. If not, you can definitely learn along the way, but we do recommend familiarizing yourself with the app before enrolling in this course.

Suggested Requirements:

  • This is a beginner’s course, so no color correcting experience is required. But, editing & general filmmaking knowledge are preferred.
  • You will need an iPad or iPhone running LumaFusion 2.2 or later on iOS 13 or later. LumaFusion is currently iOS only. Please note that some new features announced JULY 2021 will require LumaFusion 3.0.
  • Note too: In this course we mainly use an older iPad with a Lightning port, so not a later iPad Pro with USB-C. And we did this purposely to show that you don’t need the latest greatest tech to work with the app (we know lots of folks don’t have the latest gear). Of course if you have an iPad Pro that’s awesome! But you definitely don’t need one to use LumaFusion. And by the way it runs great on iPhones, too.

Don’t wait to create! Start today and unlock the potential of this amazing mobile video app.
