For a long time, Chromebooks have been criticized for having limited photo and video editing capabilities. Even if there are some excellent online apps, the trend is finally shifting. At I/O, Google demonstrated the popular iOS video editor LumaFusion working on a Chromebook. LumaFusion had previously stated that it would release an app for Chrome OS.
Google gave a brief preview of LumaFusion running on an HP Chromebook during the What’s new in Chrome OS talk earlier this week. It appears to be the premium HP Chromebook Elite C1030 in particular.
It should come as no surprise that LumaFusion runs very nicely on this Chromebook in this little demonstration. The application appears to function exceptionally well with only touchscreen input and with a variety of footage, effects, and visuals. It appears to be a much-needed update to both Chrome OS and Android. The app is still primarily an Android app, but it has been modified for Chromebooks with huge screens.
Although Google promises LumaFusion will be available on Chromebooks shortly, there is currently no set date for this. LumaFusion previously stated that it would be arriving in the first half of 2022, most likely before Samsung’s Android tablets.
Around the 19-minute point in the video below, LumaFusion may be seen in action.
