Replay is a new application that allows iPhone owners to create automatically compelling videos using the photos and the video clips stored in the gallery.
When Jeff Boudier, co-founder, Stupeflix, the company behind Replay, showed me a demo a month ago, I was amazed by the results and the speed of the application: within seconds, I could watch a short video of his vacations with a vintage filter and a soundtrack, made from a few clips and photos selected from his iPhone gallery. You can watch the demo in the video above.
Leveraging its technology that provides video capabilities for developers, Stupeflix and its team of imaging engineers, led by Nicolas Steegmann – Stupeflix CEO and cofounder, took advantage of the Apple A7 processor and its GPU computing capabilities to deliver Replay.
According to the company, on the iPhone 5s, it takes only one tenth of a second for Replay to process 50 photos and videos, perfectly edited and featuring a soundtrack. Although I did not measure the exact timing in our demo, I can tell that everything was done amazingly fast.
Basically, all your photos and videos are instantly edited into a movie leveraging the iPhone GPU, including music sync, video stabilized and trimmed to the best parts. Additionally, filters can be applied on the photos and videos, focus is made on detected faces, you have a choice of animated scenes and transitions and text effects.
- select any number of photos and videos from your camera roll to produce almost instantly a video using a choice of filters, soundtracks and text effects.
- record videos in-app with the”SteadyCam” gyro-optimized stabilization
- 8 video styles/filters are available, each gives a completely different look & feel
