Autodesk® Motion FX lets you create stunning real-time video effects using your computer’s camera.

Simply select your favorite preset effect, and create an incredible visual experience by moving in front of your computer’s camera. A preset cycling mode lets you automatically cycle through effects without lifting a finger. You can also use the Face Tracking technology of OS X Lion to emit effects from any faces visible to your camera.

If you want more personalization, there are more options you can play with in Motion FX. Color Detection lets you select a color from the live camera feed from which to emit effects, and with Effect Paint you can play with fluids using your trackpad or mouse. Video Warp mode lets you distort live video using your mouse or trackpad.

Une agréable surprise.. =D

Des applications aussi surprenante; y'en as pas des tonnes dans la section gratuit; et celle-ci; j'ai carrément hate de la montré à tout le monde demain xD !

Déjà qu'avec Photobooth on peut s'amuser un long moment; avec celle-ci c'est pas finit! Le mode detecteur de mouvement est particulièrement bien sympa et assez réaliste pour faire par exemple des boules de feu dans les mains… Franchement; ça semble ketaine, mais vous allez tous passé vos 15 prochaines minutes à faire les cons devant la caméra je vous le garantie xD ! De toute façon; une application AutoCad gratuit; on crache pas la dessus :P !

Franchement j'adore, une application vraiment sympa avec laquelle il est facile de s'amuser. J'aime particulièrement le mode "Video Warp" et le "Face detect", il est plutôt bien de voir d'autre éditeurs (et pas n'importe lequel!) faire ce type d'application… Un "must have" pour passer le temps et délirer un peu avec ses amis. :)



I found this app pretty cool!!! but alot of the time the app crashes randomly!! if the app didnt crash I would give the app 5/5………. but it does crash and there is some lag in it…… so I am goin to give this app a 3/5!! i definatly recomend you try it out!! have fun!! :)
