Presented by Google Research, Motion Stills lets you snap short videos and convert them into sweeping cinematic pans or beautiful cinemagraphs incorporating rendering technology and advanced stabilisation.
Seamless Sharing & Stabilisation
You may share the looping GIFs created or clips combined into a movie with friends. Generally, people using an iPhone may have certain restrictions to sharing content cross-platform. With Motion Stills, that shouldn’t be a problem anymore. There is no Internet needed to make GIFs. The stabilisation effect is extremely effective. In fact, it turns out so good, even a steady video shot of an inanimate object could look like a still. This is thanks to the guards against accidental camera shakes and pocket shots incorporated into the app.
Now Also Available on Android
Motion Stills was first launched in 2016. Back then, it was available only to iOS users (for reasons not very clear). Google has now made it available on Android devices (running Android KitKat or higher) as well. For Android, the search engine giant has made a few streaming changes to the video processing pipeline found on iOS. As per which, each video frame undergoes processing during recording itself. This results in the app stabilising the recording immediately while video-looping over the entire sequence. This allows users to share GIFs sans waiting. In other words, you would only have to hit the camera key. A three-second footage would get automatically captured as looping GIF.
