It's great for reliving the VHS days of fuzzy memories. Works like a treat with built in zoom and audio distortion providing a workable lofi package that is as easy to pick up and go as the original VHS cassette format (RIP in peace.) The only things i didn't like was the lack of exposure control and how sensitive the distortion was. When you tap to focus, it can fuzz up the image pretty heavily.
The recent update makes this app pretty close to perfect. Two suggestions I have (which I have seen other people mention): Option to disable the distortion lines entirely and an option to disable the audio buzz. Other than that, it's fantastic. Really appreciate the work put into it.
Gonna be honest. i took two seconds to look at this and thought " Oh yes. This is going to be used for my pc video streaming"... This app does exactly what it sets out to do, and that is provide an older, more VHS feel to your videos. and it does it EXCELLENT (Pun intended if you know the show... if not.. *makes guitar noises*)
Great app, nailed the vhs effect on my camera phone. But one thing that curently bugged me is the Imported video on Nexus 5X is always turned upside down due to Nexus native image sensor. I hope that in the future updates this could be fixed.
Fun app to give your videos that warm fuzzy look of a much loved video tape. It won't give you full control of every little thing like a after effects plug in but if you're into that sort of thing... You should be editing on a computer. Easy to use all the features & a top notch instruction section. I'd say a "hiss" control button is the only thing I'd add, if your phone mic isnt great it can drown you out.
Really cool. Although I hope they'll make an update so that there will be and option to rotate imported videos. And i was wondering why the stills won't save automatically in my photo gallery?? There's no export option either
