They reckon that all those movie directors like Spielberg, Lucas and Scorsese cut their teeth by making short films with their Super 8 cameras. They would get their friends to act out scenes and amaze their parents and friends at film night when they showed their editing prowess with a finished film that took them ages to make. It makes it all the more impressive when you look at an app like this one. KineMaster is a fabulously fast and responsive video-editing app for Android that gives you a virtual film-editing suite at your fingertips. It is the only app out there for Android that matches Apple's iMovie and then it gives you even more.
KineMaster lives up to its name quite magnificently by giving both amateur and the more experienced filmmaker all the tools they need to make professional quality short films using any videos or images. It does this directly onto your phone and with the flick of your finger. The app gives you a full range of editing features and then lets you share your finished video directly to Facebook and other social networks. It does this for any desired video resolution in a snap and that even includes video resolutions of up to Full HD (1080P.) To begin your filmmaking experience you can choose from a number of different 'one-click' themes. The selected theme then gives you the option of adding music and visual effects to the images and videos automatically to create a more complete package. In fact, video, images, music, text and even instantly recorded video and audio can all easily be added in a flash. During the video editing stage you can use your own audio tracks in addition to the ones that are built into each theme. You can adjust the length of the timeline or a clip’s color, saturation, brightness or volume and delete or completely rearrange your media clips for better effect. There are also a few eye-catching transition effects you can use such as 3D transition, Picture in Picture and rotation to make your finished film more noticeable and unique.
So, where do we begin with this excellent app. Lets just say for a start that, for a mobile video-editing app, there isn't a better one available for Android. It matches iMovie for iOS and then gives you a little bit more. KineMaster is great for beginners because it gives you a complete walk-through in how to construct your film but thankfully doesn't 'dumb-it-down' for more experienced users. They can just skip past the beginners' features and get on with making their film. To be honest, there isn't much you can't do with this fine filmmaking app. The visual effects are excellent and the interface - looking like a movie camera - is a beauty. KineMaster is a free app with a pro version that removes the watermark on your finished film and gives you a wider selection of themes to choose from. We can't say that KineMaster will turn you into the next master director but it will give you all the tools you need to send you on your way.
