Urgently need to turn your dull home video into an eye-catching movie with plot and special effects? Let your Apple’s smartphone or tablet help you doing this by means of some special iOS applications. I know there are plenty of different movie-making programs for iOS devices but the majority of them are lame, as for me at least. I have tried a lot of decent free specialized applications while the paid ones were disappointing and vice versa. After few months of researches and efforts I decided to share in my post my personal favorites in the category “The best iOS applications for movie making and editing”. Enjoy : )
iMovie – a must-have iOS application for every movie maker!
Price in the AppStore: $4.99
iMovie definitely has to become your #1 choice for iPhone/iPad users al over the world. Personally I find it irreplaceable when someone needs to shoot a good home video. Some users complain of its compatibility options (iMovie is available only with the 2nd gen iPads and 4th gen iPhones/iPods Touch) but as for me it is another good reason to switch from your old iPhone/iPad to the new one.
Nevertheless, iMovie application is worth of every cent they ask for it in the AppStore because it can help you to:
- you get a professional pocket movie-making studio with nifty interface and a huge set of buttons;
- video and sound editing functions are priceless because none of existing portable devices can boast such great and smooth working options;
- by means of iMovie a user get an opportunity to record audio into the timeline of a movie and then add any effects, video clips, photos and music files;
- since iMovie is the awesome Apple developers’ child, no wonder users of it can directly from the app shoot and post their HD movies on Facebook, Vimeo, YouTube and other similar websites.
In a nutshell, iMovie is a great application every Spielberg or Nolan obsessed movie maniac should download from the AppStore.
Storyist will help to make your movie interesting!
Price in the AppStore: $ 9.99
Making a movie seems simpler than it actually is. It is pretty cool to use all these applications with sound and video effects to get a nice picture for your movie. But what about the plot? That is a good question. Sometimes when you need to cheer up your buddy by making a good clip for him/her or to congratulate your friends with their engagement – you need to make not just a chaotic mixture of nice scenes but to create a short movie with a plot. Storyist is the best application to help you with the plot part.
By means of the app’s function it is so easy to write an original screenplay and manage your movie scenes into one logical sequence basing on the tips and variants the app offers. Storyist may not win an Oscar for you for the best screenplay but still it has a set of decent plot variations and the tips for their realization to make you look like a superhero at any party. I also like Storyist because it supports DropBox service.
CinemaFX for Video simply adds numerous effects to your homemade video!
Price in the AppStore: $1.99
CinemaFX for Video application has the best database of effects and the great functional to use. Judge, it has more effects than the well-claimed Movie Maker app – more than 55 effects – and it allows adding up to 3 effects to your clip simultaneously. I won’t get bogged down into all options this application can offer but it really has the most diverse effects collection I have ever seen. If you have finished the work at your movie it is a high time to take an advantage of CinemaFX for Video application!
Video Edit – the quickest movie editing iOS program!
Price in the AppStore: $2.99
I always recommend Video Edit to download along with iMovie because when it comes to editing of your HD movies made by means of iMovie Video Edit shows better results than the Apple’s app. If you don’t have much time to work through all nuances of editing iMovie offers to choose the quickest Video Edit’s functions allowing editing your clip in few minutes without a lack of its quality or lame picture. Not just editing options made this application my number one choice for editing but also its cool option allowing adding edited vids to YouTube and Facebook and the ability to render clips in HD with the support of 1280×720 resolution on an iPhone 4. The editing techniques it offers are awesome and they are combined with the decent speed of editing process. Highly recommended for all homemade video fans.
