How to Use an App?

Your Videos

In ‘Your Videos’ option, all the videos are available that users have made with this application. When you start an application, you will land on the screen on the left. When you open an application, you will land on “photos” option.

Make My Movie

You have already created a slideshow when you are here. Now, click on “make my movie”. The app processes the video and uploads it to our back-end. After that, you will reach to “your videos” page.

These saved videos need to be hosted on a server. If you click on a video, it takes you to the next screen (share and save). The user won’t be able to edit his video once it’s been created.

Add Sound and Music

Users can add music from given “music library”. There’s 8 moods on audioblocks. Users can integrate 5 free sound tracks per mood. Users can also add paid tracks that have a little star on. A search bar is also added to find the sound tracks.

Interestingly, users can have voice recording option to add in the video. Users can add several voice on the same video and can also edit sound by recording another voice.

Media Time

Before picking the media, users can see how long the movies are (see “2:18”). If users try to edit the video, it should open the video editor.

20+ transition in video

Add 20+ different transitions when creating a video. A video or a slide a transition is an effect that happens between each photo, slide, or video clip. For example, a fade transition can be used to fade in or out of each picture in a slide show.

20+ Effects in Video

Give any effect to your video from 20+ different given effects to make it more appealing.

For e.g. you can keep video simple by clicking to None, or can change to Monochrome, Noir, Vignette, Softlight, etc.

If you click on ‘save’ option, you will reach to the “sales page”.

A website will also launch in May 2016 for users to create video from their desktop. Just like Instagram, you can access your account, but registration can be done through app only.
