The Cinétype app is a pixel art UFO.
The objects produced by the Cinétype app belong to a new kind of photographic media, where the birthing-process of images is brought forward, taking power and celebrating its profound meaningfulness over the "ultimate" image itself — through the use of cinemagics.
Building on the reflective work behind the Pixel is Data app, the Cinétype app provides a palette of animation parameters to produce surprising, high definition video results using pixel data extracted from photos and drawings alike.
The Cinétype app is a tribute to the invention of photography by French engineer Nicéphore Niepce and its original, slow motion, chemical processing.
It's free, forever.

Ratings and Reviews
Novel idea, little explanation, narrow variety, buggy UI
Nice little app; Not much variety of functionality, but the little part it offers is unique, useful and interesting. The app is quite buggy on my iPad; It sometimes crashes, swipes don’t work sometimes if I don’t use the app in 2x zoom mode. It doesn’t support portrait mode. When I leave the app for a second when it is rendering, the render finishes normally but doesn’t produce any output. Finally, the app’s icon looks awe-inspiring, but I don’t see any ways to create such a video through this app? A little article on the general algorithms used by the app would also be a great companion. Anyways, creative, novel work! 👍🏼✌🏿
