Luminancer is a powerful one of a kind video effects app. It's modeled after classic analog synth hardware and is designed for live performances . It could be just the app you need to enhance a live VJ rig, create a music video, or just spend a moment manifesting yourself in the Luminiferous aether

This is the app for masters of lightwave sorcery.

Luminancer has been in the app store for 5 years and has been recognized for it’s early innovation and high performance. Skilled artists have utilized Luminancer in the flow arts of poi, fire, and hoop dancing. Luminancer can be found in use on the stage for headliner bands at major musical festivals and and at the most underground rave parties.

How it works: By overloading the luminance channel with strobing colors and video feedback, Luminancer defines itself as an instrument of abstract video. Luminancer starts with a luminance threshold filter and sends it’s signal down a video processing pipeline modeled after the early innovations and machines of the pioneers of video art.

Luminancer is a truly independent app. It was conceived, developed, and designed by a single real person without any sort of external help or funding. The money raised from this app quite literally goes towards feeding my 2 children thank you and God bless.

It's okay.

I've had this app for years now and there are definitely still things that need to be worked on.
Overall it works great for short videos, but I've found that I cannot save anything that is longer than about 2 minutes. The app gets stuck on a loading screen until it crashes altogether, and there is no way to recover the video you just took and lost. There needs to be some type of backup so that in the event someone loses their footage to a crash they can go back to it.

Another downside is that, while you can upload your own video and watch it through the app with the effects, you can't save it. You can only take photos while the video plays, which doesn't make much sense to be honest.

Other than that, as long as you record short videos it'll work. I'll be honest, I'm sorely disappointed in the lack of things that really should have been common sense.


Can’t save???

I don’t know if I’m just dumb or if there’s really no save button. Someone help


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! 👍✌️
