Viddy allows users to create 15 second video clips, customize them, and share them with the world! Choose and trim clips from your iPad’s camera roll, or shoot with the Viddy camera, with customizable exposure, focus, audio metering, white balance, and more. Mix and match a variety of FX filters and audio clips to customize your footage, and share your creations through Facebook, Twitter, SMS, Email, or with the Viddy community. Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram’s lovechild – available free in the iTunes store!
First, sign up by linking Viddy with your Facebook, Twitter, or email account. If you choose Facebook or Twitter, the app will post on your behalf – when you upload a new video, it will post a video still and link to your video on the Viddy website.
Next, choose a video from your camera roll or shoot using the Viddy camera. I’ll review the camera roll option first with, of course, a cat video! After your video has loaded, tap and drag the sliders to review your footage and select 15 seconds of video.
You will then enter the main editing interface – choose your filter and audio, adjust by tapping and dragging the sliders.
The free FX video filters include:
The free audio clips include: No Soundtrack, ”Figure 8″ by Ellie Goulding, ”Makaha” by The Tikiyaki Orchestra, ”Someone Anyone” by Anberlin, ”7 Ghosts I” by Nine Inch Nails, ”Determined 90″ by Elias Music Library, ”Solo 3b” by Orange Factory Music, ”Good Time” by Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen, ”Snoop Dogg” by Snoop Dogg, ”Wasteland (Radical Project Remix)” by New Vision Records, ”Let’s Get a Wave” by Tony Roberts, ”Magnolia” by Jacob Moon, ”No New” by Glen Porter, ”Allegro Moderato en fa Mineur” by Franz Schubert, ”Final Frontier 2010″ by Silver Bullets Music Library, ”Bufo Marinus” by Track & Field, ”Earls Court” by Moonlit Sailor, ”Prelude 1″ by Full Time Beret, ”Promises, Promises” by Incubus, ”P.I. Paradise” by Sony/ATV, and ”Master Blues” by Sony/ATV.
I chose the Solarize filter and the “Final Frontier 2010″ track. After selecting both the filter and the audio, each will take a moment to encode. You can watch your version and at any time go back and switch the customizable filters and tracks.
When shooting your own video through the Viddy app, there are a variety of camera controls to choose from.
When you have completed shooting, uploading, and editing your video, you can then share it on a variety of social media outlets. Add a thumbnail, and personalize your Viddy by tagging friends, adding a location, and including general tags so other Viddy users can enjoy your work!
