Give your talents as a director free reign with RecoLive MultiCam, the multi-camera shooting application. Use your iPad or iPhone as a production switcher and additional iPhones or iPods as video cameras to be able to shoot as if you were in an actual television studio. View all cameras simultaneously, combine images together from several cameras, create transitions from one camera to another, and do it all live! Save your work in Full HD and share it with your friends.
++ Wi-Fi Connection ++
Each iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running RecoLive MultiCam can be used as either a camera or the switcher. The device being used as the switcher shows a list of all the other iPhones, iPods or iPads in use on your Wi-Fi network. It’s easy to select the ones that you want to use as cameras. You can then see the selected cameras’ images and mix them together.
++ Display On All Cameras ++
With the switcher, you can display each camera’s images live. It is easy to select one and view it on the preview panel (only on the iPad). Simply click on “->Live” to include its video stream in your recording. A red light on the camera screen indicates when the camera is live.
++ Transitions ++
Every time the “->Live” button is pressed, the app switches to the selected camera. Several transition modes are available: cross fade, wipe, cube and more.
++ Effects ++
Select two or more cameras to combine their images into one view. Several graphic effects are available: dashboard, flap, picture-in-picture and more.
++ Remote Control ++
From the switcher, you can remotely control camera’s zoom, focus, exposure, white balance, stabilization and torch.
++ Recording in Full HD ++
Each camera can record video in the highest quality available. On the iPhone 4S, 5, 5C and 5S, for instance, video is recorded in Full HD. When filming has wrapped, each camera’s recording output is sent to the switcher which uses this input to create a final product. The resulting videos are of truly exceptional quality.
++ Sharing ++
Transfer the final product or all camera rushes to the Camera Roll. You can then share directly on YouTube, import into iMovie or move to any other application on your iPad or iPhone. Transfer your creation to your Mac or PC via iTunes to import it into your favorite video editing software.
++ Additional features ++
1. You can select the camera used as the audio source for the whole film.
2. Include a PowerPoint, a Keynote or anything displayed on the screen of your Mac. This requires RecoLive Capture, our live video screen capture app, on the Mac.
3. Autofocus can automatically be disabled while the camera is live. This prevents the autofocus process to be visible on the production.
4. Tally light (front and back).
++ Requirements ++
The app runs on any iOS device running iOS9. A Wi-Fi network is required (the personal hotspot of one iPhone is often enough). The app works without an access to Internet. Using an iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or iPad mini 1 as the switcher is not recommended.
What's New in Version 2.3.3
Corrected issue connecting to Motrr Galileo on iOS9.
So far so good!
Let me start my saying I think this is an awesome app, I've ran my iPad Air as a camera and a switcher while controlling 3 iPhones, an iPhone 4, and iPhone 5s, and an iPhone 5c. It worked flawlessly! I only shot 2 minutes I have yet to try a longer video. But for what I tested it worked great! While recording one take you can preview your next camera and Zoom in or out to frame you shot and the included transitions are excellent as well, I went ahead and spent the extra $3 and purchased the ability to add images or overlays and that works great also, I had some logos I had designed already with transparency and they looked great. The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because I think it should include Facebook live streaming , I know they have another app for that but it's with a subscription and I hate that subscription nonsense I rather do my recording and then post to social media, I use Facebook live a lot but I cannot afford to spend a lot of money on it, as I was looking for an alternative to a MEVO camera I stumble upon this app I think is great I recommend it it is word the 5 or 8 bucks the ability to switch between 4 cameras and add graphics on the fly! All from an iPad, that's amazing! Add the ability to stream live at least as an in app purchase I would pay 20 or 30 ( don't make it a subscription) add that feature and you would have a lot of more people buying the app and more reviews with 5 starts :-) thanks for a great app
I have very rarely if ever given a 5 star rating, but wanted to take the time to do so for this app.
First, the app works as advertised. Recording from multiple devices while allowing live compliation of a mixed track is pretty sophisticated stuff, but RecoLIve has made a clean and very usable interface to make it manageable for even beginers to use.
I would definately recommend creating some tests before you capture your final video as you will want to make sure you know not only how to record but also how to retrieve your recording. This isn't a criticism of the software but simply some good advice for those just getting started.
The other highlight for me is that each of the cameras records up to 1080 HD on to that device allowing me not only to get the combined video but also retrieve the original footage from each device and do my own editing.
While I felt this was a great app, what I really appreciated was the support. They were very quick to respond, provided excellent answers (even when what I wanted to do wasn't yet supported, they were clear about what it does do and what options I had). I have worked with a lot of software and computer companies and this one really stands out as one that cares.
Thanks again for creating a great app at an afordable price and providing some of the best support I have seen.
I like it. Works as advertised
I really like this app. It us room for a few improvements, but overall seems to work as advertised. I haves experienced any lag or anything, the transitions are cool. If I wish the developers would provide an option to record on a selected device, reason being, I have several older iOS devices, and 1 newer, larger 1 with much more storage. The app records video on each individual device, so my older devices can't really record much video at all :(
Change that feature and it's a 5 star app. I'm sure I could come up with other change ideas like lower thirds built in, but it us ability to cut to a graphic so it's ok. A graphic overlay would be great though. All in all not bad. With the $$
