Luminancer captures videos and still images with effects such as rainbow strobes, vortex tunnels, spirals, glitch, halos, rays, contrast, color, solar, low light settings and more.

Luminancer is an instrument for radical expression.

Photo Option: Create still images in numerous combination of effects. Every image an abstract piece of art, album cover, or mood enhancer. Post to Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook or save to your Photo Library.

Video Option: Real time video effects with audio. It is the language of the future. Poems in the form of video seek to bend light in their expression, yet the simple filters and generic warping of most apps are inadequate. Post your masterpieces, music concert videos and veejay projection reels to YouTube. Be a visual performance artist with your iOS device.

How it works: By overloading the luminance channel with strobing colors and video feedback, Luminancer defines itself as an instrument of abstract video.

Video doesn't have to be a literal replaying of material events it can also capture the interaction of motion and light. Luminancer gets it's visual effect from the cycle of luminance overload and feedback loops. Combining tropes from an earlier era of experimental video art with the power of modern digital technology Luminancer makes it possible for iOS videographers to create and share cyberpsychedelic events the moment they happen.

Something special

There is just something very unique, and ahead-of-its-time about this app. I think people don't see/understand fully what it is yet. I found it about a year ago and somehow keep coming back to it. I download and try an average of at least 30 apps per day. ..everyday... & have come to the realization that there isn't anything quite like this out there. Technically, I've found 2, or 3 which are in a somewhat similar app category, but none could hold my attention for more then 10 seconds, or do anything more then 1 basic effect. The person behind this app is a genius. I hope he/she gets the recognition they deserve one day. If you read this by chance... High five dude! ✋😊💙 I love your app. Thanks for making it! 👍✌️


A very cool, constantly changing way to manipulate the world. It seems to be less about control and more about riding the effects until something rad happens. Be quick on the trigger though, it descends into chaos rather quickly. Which can be cool too. Depends on what you want. I feel like I need to practice at it, so it feels game-like. Beyond all else, trippy as hell

VJ Footage Made By You!

The best thing about this app are the effects and the fact that you can record video of yourself with the front facing camera or of someone else with the rear camera, and then save it to your Camera Roll... You can then use this footage in software for VJ-ing Like VJay. Worth the 99 cents for sure! I wonder if it has a COMPOSITE Out feature.... That would make this more awesomer and more effects and realtime interactivity.
