NEW Major 2.0 update: Gestures, landscape, new buttons, custom user button names and more. 2.0 is a free update for registered users. You must update to the 2.0 preference pane in order to use the new features.

Editmote is an iOS remote control for your editing system. Control a wide range of applications including Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Symphony, DaVinci Resolve, QuickTime Player and many more.

Operate the playhead, add markers, set in and out points, navigate the timeline, trim and adjust in out points - all from the comfort of your screening room couch. Use gestures to save yourself from looking down at the iOS device.

Almost everything in Editmote can be customized. Easily add support for new applications, customize keyboard shortcuts, add user-defined buttons and customize button layouts and gestures.

Editmote is an essential tool for editors that simplifies screening your project.


Remotely control the playhead, set in and out points, add markers, adjust the volume and more.


Control your NLE without needing to look down.


Install the preference pane and flick the switch to the On position.


Editmote assumes you're using the default keyboard layout for your NLE but you can specify different shortcuts if you've changed them.


Change the function of a button or remove it entirely.


  1. Download the Editmote Preference Pane onto your editing machine and double-click to install it.
  2. Once the preference pane launches, put the switch in the On position.
  3. If necessary, use the Keyboard Layouts tab to accommodate any custom keyboard layouts you may have set within your editing application.
  4. Launch Editmote on your iOS device.
  5. Select the name of your computer in the list.
  6. Make sure your editing application is running and use the controls to remotely operate the application. Note that not every button is functional on every application - for example, QuickTime Player has no marker capabilities so the marker buttons do nothing when pressed while QuickTime Player is running.
  7. Customize the button layout to fit your needs by going to the Actions button and tapping Edit Button Layout. When in edit mode, tap a button to choose a different function for that button from a list. When finished, tap the Done button.
