Dealing With iPhone Screen Space
Hi, I've been contracted by a pretty big iPhone development company to design a video editing application on iPhone and iPad. The iPad version is pretty much complete design-wise, and the iPhone version is almost done but I have a little conundrum...
I can't show a screenshot of the application for confidentiality reasons, but basically my problem is that we have 3 windows that are essential to be shown - The preview, the timeline, and the media collection - at certain points within the app. The problem is that if you try to show all 3, the media section is too small to contain the necessary section tabs and options without making the preview too tiny to execute a multitouch crop or show a preview of the media. If it makes the timeline disappear, well then you can't drag it into the timeline can you.
I need a solution where I would be able to have the media (and effects, transitions, titles menus - the 4 are in a section) available while still showing the preview and the timeline. Please let me know if you can think of anything, it would be greatly appreciated.
