Ratings and Reviews
Frustrated & Angry
Here are the issues I encountered recording a live music event using Cinamaker Director and Cinamaker Capture:
• All mobile Capture devices intermittently dropped off the Director iPad, sometimes permanently, despite a strong wifi signal and close proximity (no more than 40 feet). This was with all services (Bluetooth, etc.) turned off as recommended by the publisher. All mobile devices maintained a strong signal to the wifi SSID throughout the session.
• Video and audio for all individual Capture clips are unsynced. Two of the four capture devices were unsynced throughout, while the other two became increasing unsynced. This will make it incredibly difficult to sync whatever video clips are usable to the primary audio recording.
• One device produced video that can best be described as “staccato”, with the video freezing/unfreezing throughout the 15-minute recording. Another device had pronounced freezing close to the end of the session. This is despite each of the devices having a fresh iOS install and at least 4gb free storage (and all unnecessary services turned off.)
• Three of the four devices produced video with a huge “made with cinamaker” bug in the lower right-hand corner, even though the iPad they (sometimes) connected to had a “Studio Package” subscription which allows four device connections.
Looking at the captured video this morning leaves me heartbroken and angry. The recording session would have been better handled using each device’s native video-recording software (or Filmic Pro), as then I’d have the expected quality and results. It was a mistake to attempt to use Cinamaker Director in its advertised role of “directing.”
Equipment & Software:
4 x iPhone 6s
1 x iPad mini 4 64gb
Simple, yet Sophisticated
I was reluctant, but it was easy to connect my three iPhone cameras and control them from the iPad. I shoot video for businesses and Cinamaker lets me edit and record multi-cameras and live stream to Facebook and YouTube. Very impressive and affordable.
I have tested this app extensively and am amazed with the feature set and power on a regular iPad. All source videos are automatically archived. It offers a fast method to do a first cut them integration with Premiere is tight. Highly recommend!!!
