If I got your attention in my earlier post about cinemagraphs and you want to know more, then let’s get straight to the core of this technique. For start, these are the required ingredients: a camera/smartphone that can shoot video, very steady hands or preferably a tripod, exciting ideas and a computer. And then comes the editing part. Depending on the device you’re using, there are different ways to achieve similar results.
Scenario 1: The most recommended app for editing the video material and getting the best results at export, due to its tweaking flexibility is Photoshop. If you want to go this route, you can find a very good and detailed tutorial here.
Scenario 2: If you have a computer that runs Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit) you can give a go to Cliplets, which is an interactive app, developed by Microsoft, specifically for creating cinemagraphs in just a few steps. Moreover, you can find an inspiring tutorial over here.
Scenario 3: And finally, but not the least, if you’re using a tablet or smartphone (iPad, iPhone or Android) to capture the video footage, and you’d like to do also the editing part on your mobile device, you should definitely have a look at the dedicated apps reviewed here.
Whichever path you’re going to choose, don’t forget to try new ideas and have fun in the meantime! 🙂
