Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Add CGI special effects created by Hollywood FX artists to your videos and photos! For a limited time, download the app and get four FREE effects.
You can choose from over 100 effects include dinosaurs, dragons, penguins, skeletons, robots, zombies and unicorns, as well as fire, rain and lighting, all of which you can preview before you buy.
Unlike other FX apps, the Efexio app lets you rotate effects in three dimensions so you’re not limited to one angle of view. You can also change their size and position, move the shadows, add a color cast and make other adjustments to realistically add them to any video or photo.
Adding effects to your videos and photos is easy. Choose an effect and select your video or photo. Then, make adjustments with the easy-to-use controls in the app and the “What You See Is What You Get” interface. Get creative and share your videos and photos with friends on YouTube, Facebook and other social media. They won’t believe their eyes!
What's New in Version 2.0
Fix for iOS 8.1.3
Works fairly well on my iPad Air 2, but is useless on my iPhone 6. Extremely buggy on the phone. Some of the models load fine, while many others throw the app into a loading loop forcing you to power the phone off and restart. The description of each model in the library is truncated. For example, all of the T-Rex models simple read "T-Rex" instead of T-Rex Walking", etc. as it shows on the iPad, so you don't know what each action is. When you select a tool, the controls don't stay on the screen while you use them, forcing you to hold your finger down while you make your adjustments. As far as the camera position tool goes, it doesn't work at all on my phone. The other camera angles cannot be selected as you can on the iPad. Two finger sizing gestures are also very buggy. It works to a point, but then the model blows up to a huge size and cannot be shrunk back down. In addition to the numerous bugs, the app lacks some very basic features like more control over motion path. The camera angles can be changed somewhat, but not enough, i.e. completely straightening out a path to go straight across the screen, etc. Personally I expected more for what I paid for the app and all the extra cost models... BTW the "Pro" model versions are very overpriced in my opinion.
Interesting, but also very frustrating
I really want to like this app, but... The app's description does not mention these nontrivial limitations:
- The video produced by this app can be a max of 15 seconds.
- You can only import from the *first* 15 seconds of a video from your camera roll - you cannot choose the 15 seconds you want to use.
- Video dimensions are reduced noticeably if you use the free content. E.g, 540x540 for a square that started at an already tiny 720x720.
- The app does not save your work into a project that can be edited later. In other words, if you close the app, you lose your work. That's pretty terrible if you used multiple layers and want to adjust later.
Also, the effects are not cheap, especially if HD.
The app says bundles make effects cheaper, but bundles don't have much real variety - they are mostly just variations of two or three creatures or whatever. The app needs bundles that have a variety of unlike items to be truly an improvement over effects individually.
Okay but could be better
Add the ability to mirror effects. Certain effects freeze the app when exporting. Blood spurt 2 and zombie crawl are two effects that can't be exported because of freezing. The ability to transfer purchases to a PC. I am NOT paying twice for effect packages. Easy as having the ability to make an efexio account and storing purchases on the account
