Missing in action: editing a video on the Lumia

I shot a few small clips on the Lumia 930 last night and wanted to assemble them into a small video. Unfortunately that only works if you have both a Nokia phone and a Nokia tablet.

There are two versions of the app: The Nokia Video Director tablet app with all the editing features, and the Nokia Video Director Companion phone app. With the phone app, you can easily record videos and transfer photos and videos to your Nokia Lumia tablet.

I do have both, so I transferred the clips from the phone to the tablet and let Nokia Video Director do all the work. This is completely automatic. Select the clips, enter some text, bang, done. The result:

I believe that Windows Phone needs the equivalent of iMovie, an app that gives you better control over the process of cutting the video. I shot and cut this on the iPhone 5S:

Es gibt ja unter 8.1 auch APIs, die Video Editoren ermöglichen.
"Movie Maker"
(http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=19ecadd0-5849-4565-a5d5-d4402a10941a) und
"Videomomente"
(http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=3915d6e5-798e-4f87-a02f-d7fb305b6593)
sind derzeit wohl angesagt. Letzteres ist von Microsoft.

Videomomente (Movie Moments) mag anscheinend nur Clips bis 60 Sekunden und ich kann nicht erkennen, wie man damit ein Video schneiden soll. Auch Movie Maker erschließt sich mir nicht.

Das Video ist beeindruckend! Unglaublich, dass es mit einem Telefon gedreht wurde!

cool wärs gewesen, das 930 Video auch mit einem 5s aufzunehmen und zu vergleichen. Ich persönlich bin nämlich mit dessen Fotoperformance nicht zufrieden, wenn die Lichtverhältnisse nicht perfekt sind. Daher meine Sehnsucht nach einem Vergleich. :)

Ist das reine Produktstrategie oder gibt's auch einen technischen Grund, warum das nur mit Videos von einem Lumia Phone geht?

Es geht auch mit Videos, die Du mit dem 2520 aufnimmst.
