Every now and then you come across a gem of an app, such is the case with “Game Your Video.” Game Your Video by is a video editing app of sorts. It allows your creativity to run wild.
There are four main features to chose from, motion effects, audio transformation,visual effects and Flavors.
The selection of visual effects are pretty good on this app, and for $.99, its hard to beat. Select from several motion effects like “Jitter, fast and slow motion” even a matrix like effect.
Beef up your audio with Audio Transformations like “Chipmunk and demonic or baby. Game your Video even allows you import music from your iPod, add that personal track to create your own music videos.
There are filters in the visual effects section that bring home the desired ” feel” of your creation like Noir, vintage and cinema. Some of these I thought looked almost the same, with little variance.
There is also a Menu called “Flavor.” This is sort of a grouping of several of the effects into one. So Chaplin, for instance would have Old BW and Chaplin music with it.
Other features included adding background noise like laughter or applause, expressions like “POW or ZOOM, (to get your onomatopoeia on). You can also render these effects to videos you have already taken or while you are recording. There is even the option to upload your masterpieces to Youtube and Facebook right from the app, trim or send a copy to your camera roll. Even used with other apps such as “Action Movie” or iMovie, this I thought was a very nice touch.
Although the menus where few I found them to be a little user unfriendly. It was hard for me to remember how to add an effect to my old video, or then remove it when I found another that I liked, I also wished, there where more options from the actual video screen, with more choices such as multiple layering and some transitions would be nice.
Though not perfect, I thought it was one of the best out the for the price, fun and entertaining, well worth picking up.
