Ratings and Reviews
Essential Cinematography App imho
The ability to use my iPhones camera or a calibrated photo to preview thousands of gel colors plus compare gels side by side over the image?
This update is a game changer for my location scouts, tech meetings and those quick “What gel looks good here?” moments.
I can’t wait to use it out in the field and on-set. It’s top of the stack now in my iPhones Cine Apps folder.
One suggestion on improving the app.
If the apps photo preview feature gave us the ability to selectively erase or paint on an area of the color gel overlay (for still photos only, not the live camera) this would really help in coming up with complex color combos. The ability to show Production Designers, Set Painters and Props people where a gel color wash will play on a live set would be incredible for an iPhone app.
Tiffen used to have 2 iPhone apps that allowed masking to a certain degree with their camera filters overlaid on top of still photos. They sold it off I believe and it’s now called “DFT” aka Digital Film Tools in the iPhone App Store. It still functions the same and I use it all the time.
I don’t know how complex app coding is but just a thought on how to take the app to the next level.
Have a great New Year!
I’ve enjoyed this app for years and was sad to see it slip into disrepair. I’m happy it’s back. If you like creating your own filters instead of just settling for presets this is a great tool, and very easy to use. You just choose the effects you want from a large selection, adjust them to your liking, and layer or paint them on.
Fix the icon
I’ve used various versions of this app for years and it is one of my very favorite photo editing apps. It presents a lot of nice effects in an organized way, and then allows easy adjustments on each one.
All I would ask is that you get a designer to design a nice icon. I hate having ugly icon apps on my phone and this thing is terrible.
Other than that, great job.
