Before there was Vine, there was Cinemagr.am
Before there was Vine, there was Cinemagr.am. And with Instagram video coming tomorrow, June 20th, it’s important to note its predecessors. The Cinemagr.am App, co-created by Temo Chalasani, is the fastest way to share videos with your friends and family. Create and instantly share beautiful 4 second looping videos to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr!
Cinemagr.am App Creates 4 Second Looping Videos
Cinemagrams are created by taking a video, isolating a particular section within the shot, and looping movement while keeping the rest as a still photograph. On a touchscreen, you can do this editing with your finger within the Cinemagram app. The rest of the interface is basically just like Instagram — with overlay filters, social features, a popular page, etc.
Cinemagr.am App Gives GIFs A Good Name.
Cinemagram uses the age-old Internet format of animated GIFs, so these creations play automatically on many Web pages and within the app. With Cinemagram you can produce animated rather than still-frame photos, allowing you to capture moments with more vividness. It also provides different editing options and fun filters that enable you to be more creative with your photography.
