Popular photo-editing app VSCO expands from still photography to video

VSCO, the popular photo-editing and sharing app for iOS and Android, continues to get better. After adding RAW image editing in late 2016 and bringing its filters to the desktop earlier this year, it is finally adding support for video. Users can now apply the same film looks they love in still photography to moving images, with no length or file size limitations. Video editing is currently limited to iOS, but the feature should work its way into the Android version in the near future, the company said in a blog post. A VSCO X membership is also required.

The feature is described as an “early version,” although it is unclear what, if anything, remains to be finalized about it. VSCO X members on iOS can access the feature by updating to the latest version of the app, navigating to their Studio, and tapping on the Video Editing announcement banner. From there, videos stored on a user’s camera roll will appear, and users have access to the full collection of VSCO X presets. The standard editing tools can also be used for fine-tuned adjustments. Once edited, videos will be saved back to the camera roll -- not to a user’s Studio.

Do you OOO? New iOS music video app aims to make zooming fun
ooo zoom app

A new app from Brooklyn-based This Also isn’t designed to help you take better videos — it’s designed to make videos a little more fun with something as simple as zoom.

OOO uses Force Touch or a slider to zoom in and out, adding in some original soundtracks to create whimsical music videos. The app allows users to zoom in a little or a lot and at varying speeds. With Force Touch, the harder you press, the faster the zoom, though earlier iOS devices can still use the apps with a slider or by presetting the zoom speed and reach.
