GroupClip For iOS Makes Multi-Angle Videos Doable
Even if your phone's camera is powerful and snaps images in 1/20 of a blink, it's still no three-eyed raven and it can't capture videos from multiple angles or act as a VR-capturing device. Filming videos from multiple perspectives always dazzled the curious smartphone directors, and now it's possible.
Enter the GroupClip app
With this iOS app, you can team up with several friends and form a wandering - if that's your thing - crew of filmmakers helping each other by shooting the same moment from a different point of view. The results are up for editing in GroupClip's user-friendly interface right on your phone.
The app will surely be appreciated by extreme sports junkies - now you can record your buddy showing off some gnarly tricks from any point around him if the devices used are framing through GroupClip.
When the show's over, you can connect your devices either through WiFi or LTE and exchange the videos recorded. When you have the desired footage on your phone, load it into the app and select the desired scenes from other devices by tapping on them within the app. When done selecting, simply stitch them without leaving GroupClip.
All in all, it’s down to a few simple steps:
The app's editor is powerful and it lets you decide if you want a single perspective or a mashup of shots. In case you own some non-DRM music on your phone, you're good to use it as a soundtrack to the exploits filmed earlier.
There's barely any learning curve to GroupClip and the general point-and-film approach is solid enough to master the app without any prior practice.
GroupClip lets you collaborate with up to five fellow cameramen within a given project, and you don't even have to be in the same time zone, which probably means mashing up Bali sunsets with fresh Aspen powder, zero file transfer woes included.
As of today, the app is only live for iOS with in-app purchases looming large along with an Android app coming soon.
