Proved to be an excellent app during our VJ gig!
We connected two cameras streaming video through to Videator, which was then output to two large projectors. Not only did Videator handle this beautifully at very smooth frame rates, but we were are able to delight all of the guests with the bevvy of visual effects that are built right in. We also were able to create our own "filter recipes", and that'll be fun to continue to develop during future uses. I highly recommended this app to anyone who wants to make cool and grooved out visuals for their parties and clubs.
Makes a great video backdrop to live music or at a party!
Having Videator running during a party or when a band is playing "makes" the place cool. Using multiple video feeds and cool images, we make the place even more rocking when we've got Videator on the big screen. Loved it on the Mac before the app store (when I paid $49 for this app!) and love the new version. Terrific customer service too.
Glad to see Videator on the app store!
Creative, promising, but...
Often crash-prone. Some effects appear to be limited to 24 seconds? Record with effect as long as you like, and preview will render the effect, but the recording drops the effect after 24 seconds.
Don't get me wrong, the application is KEEN in the number of useful video effects involved. Just not quite as polished as I might have hoped. Heck, in truth, I'm just looking for a consumer-level replacement for Apple's Motion. This is as close as it gets, I guess.
