How do I start a freelance video editor?

Before starting into the process of editing freelance, you will need to decide what career path is best suited for your skills and interests.

In October 2013, Apple introduced iWork in the form of the new iPad Pro and the redesigned Mac Pro. At this time, I was in my first year of working on Mac apps, and having an iPad Pro to run them on provided a great experience. However, while the iPad Pro is a fantastic device, we realized that it could not be used to edit professional content, and that we needed a mobile OS with a more powerful and feature-rich desktop environment.

New Folder Creation

Next, iLife has the ability to create folders in Finder that appear as virtual folders on your desktop when open, giving you more room
