You've downloaded an app that allows you to adjust the frame rate, exposure and focus of the footage you have shot on your smartphone, but now what?
Editing content on a phone can be a tricky business, and there are no rules that say you can't transfer your material over to a laptop to produce your news package, so why not give it a go?
In fact, that's what BBC senior video journalist, Dougal Shaw, does in his day-to-day job, for which he has been shooting news packages and the 'CEO Secrets' video series on his iPhone before editing on Final Cut Pro X.
Take a look at this blog from BBC Academy, where Shaw lists how you can enhance smartphone footage using desktop editing software.
He explains how to add movement to still images, how to fix colour issues, how to stabilise shaky footage, and even how to put together multi-camera edits using images shot from different angles.
