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.
