With video recording capabilities on just about every device and the quality of those recordings getting better by the day, it’s no wonder that making videos is one of the most popular uses for smartphones, tablets, and even computers. But all that recording capability comes with a learning curve. If you want to make videos that look like a Hollywood film studio produced them, you’ll need a lot of practice and some good apps.
- LumaFusion (iOS)
Suppose you’re looking for a powerful, pro-level video editor. In that case, there’s no better choice on the App Store than LumaFusion, which has a number of advanced features not found on any other mobile video editor. Some of its standout features include a unique multi-layer timeline, advanced camera, and microphone settings, and the ability to record video or photos directly in the app.
KineMaster is a movie maker application for the Android platform. It can shoot, edit, and share your movie with the world. It features various video templates that can be used to create a professional video without the complexity of a professional video editor. With its powerful video effects and image filters, you can create a unique and professional movie. There are also many other ways to embellish your videos. You can add background music, voice-overs, and captions.
If you’re looking for a simple tool to help you turn your videos into a little more polished product, then iMovie is for you. iMovie is a great option for making home movies more impressive, and the fact that you can also download it onto your iPhone or iPad is an added bonus.
- Adobe Premiere Rush
Adobe Premiere Rush is an editing tool made by Adobe, and it’s a mobile application that is very easy to use, and it also includes a lot of features. It has a good UI, but it’s only for android devices. So, if you want to use it, you must have an android device.
- Apple Clips
In its quest to be the world’s most profitable phone maker, Apple successfully conquered two major markets: the United States and China. Now that it has done so, it is expected that the company will focus its efforts on different regions. One of them is India.
In the past, Apple has had problems with its devices in the country: it took almost a decade before the tech giant could obtain a license to sell its devices in the country, due to the fact that its devices were “technologically advanced” and the local content requirements were not applied for this kind of technology. In the meantime, its devices had to be imported from the United States, which made them very expensive.
- Filmmaker Pro
Filmmaker Pro is the newest app out there that lets you turn your iPad into a motion graphics and visual effects tool. With Filmmaker Pro, the iPad is a nearly comprehensive replacement for a high-end desktop-based video editing suite. If you want to add some motion graphics to a video project but don’t have a lot of time to learn a new piece of software, this app can get the job done without a lot of fuss. This is a powerful app that works with a variety of video, audio, and image files, and it lets you add text, transitions, effects, and even animated titles.
The iPhone X has a powerful camera, but the camera app itself leaves a lot to be desired. The interface is cumbersome and confusing, and it’s too easy to accidentally switch to the video camera and leave the still camera behind. InShot is a handy iPhone app that adds a lot of the functionality that Apple’s native camera app is missing. It’s like having a mini-DSLR in your pocket.
The smartphone camera is the best tool for shooting video since the invention of the movie camera. That being said, there is no “one size fits all” solution to making your videos look great. The secret to finding good apps is to create a “bracket” of apps that can be used together to achieve the look that you want. For example, if you like to add filters to your videos, you should download one app that does it really well and one that doesn’t so that you have options.
