I have an ipad air and recently i was trying to edit a quick 10 min movie of some 1080p 60fps video in iMovie. I only have a 32 gig ipad air so i wasn't able to upload all the video on to the ipad. i had to purchased icloud storage upgrade for a month so i could download the video i needed to work with in imovie. This wasnt a great solution as i would download the video i wanted to edit then delete the video so i can download more. I was wondering if there was a way to hold the videos on an external drive, laptop or any other method so that i can work on my ipad and then export to that drive or laptop? Any better solution would be much appreciated.

    Why did you need to purchase iCloud Storage? Your videos are stored locally in the Photos app, until you copy them into iMovie.

  • With only 2 to 5 gigs free of storage on my ipad i couldn't fit the 20 gigs of video i needed to work with. Luckily iCloud is well integrated into iMovie and i was able to pay 99¢ to store the all the videos on iCloud then download the clip i wanted to work with, delete after i wad done working with it, and lastly repeat until i was finished with the movie.
