When we introduced the GIF Mixer a few weeks ago we knew the next logical thing was to change the way we record the video messages on unda app. Today we are introducing multiple takesediting on one single video, and this may sound like “meh” but mixing GIFs on every take and combining the animations and filters is pretty fun. Check out the video below to see what we mean and make your own with unda app for iPhone now! Get the update right now from the App Store! (BTW use the #videoselfie or #unda hashtags on Twitter or here so we can see your beautiful creations!).
Unda app latest update for iPhone introduces two new super cool features that we are sure you are going to love: Video Selfies and the GIFs Mixer.
GIFs mixer is exactly what you are thinking: it lets you search for thousands of GIFs available online and mix them with your video messages in a very cool way. It’s not just any random GIFs though, these GIFs are transparent by default so you can mix them with your videos for crazy results. Try also using the back camera for even cooler stuff.
To use the GIFs Mixer just tap on the GIF search icon while on the recording view, search for anything and then pick one. After that you can scale and move around the GIF anywhere you want and even activate the Face Tracking option or changing the speed of the animation. When you are ok with the result just tap DONE and start recording your video message. Don’t forget you can mix it with the filters as well.
Video Selfie is also being introduced as part of this update and it’s pretty cool. We know that you already have a bunch of friends everywhere, services like Twitter, Facebook, Line, Whatsapp or even your Contact List. With Video Selfies now you can record video messages, use the GIFs Mixer or Motion Stickers and then share these video messages anywhere you want, even on active conversations you have on these services. Try it! and if your friends like it, maybe they’ll join unda as well :)
So go on, update your unda app and get into it. GIF Mixer is super deep and the stuff you can do is awesome. We are waiting to see what you can do it it.
Have fun with unda and don’t forget: Life is Bigger than Texting.
ps. don’t forget to check out our quick intro video for the new functions!
Video messages are supposed to be fun and personal, and that’s exactly what we’ve always dreamed with unda app. So what exactly is a motion sticker? well, it’s actually hard to explain with written words, but they’re super easy to use and have fun with.
Motion Stickers are animations you can combine with your video messages and they use some advanced technologies like Motion Tracking and Face Tracking *or some complex technology but super easy and fun to use* so you don’t need to do anything but select one and play around with it. Some stickers follow your face around the screen, so you can move around and the animations will follow you. Some also detect the movement of your camera and will adapt in real time.
So how do you use the motion stickers? it’s easy: while on the recording screen on unda now you can tap on the smiley face icon and access the motion stickers menu. From there, you can choose one motion sticker at a time and record your video message like before. Try choosing one motion sticker and then combine it with video filters for crazy combinations. Try also using both the front facing and back side camera. When you get the app update you will get 16 motion stickers ready to use, and then you can unlock even more by just sending video messages to your friends.
