We all watch the big-budget Hollywood movies and think about the special movie effects which are added to make everything look so real while still being never shot. Technology has evolved to the point that adding special effects to videos has now become commonplace. While the technology incorporated in movies is especially high-end, there are apps available on Google Play which help add great effects to effects which would add something special to your videos.
FxGuru has an interactive user-interface and helps you in understanding the purpose of the app so that you can get started straight away. The app has a slightly steep learning curve as the app doesn't provide any tutorial and only provides hints in its videos on how to shoot the video so as to ensure that the movie effects can be later added by the app. However, once you get to grips with how to use the effects and how to shoot the video in order to best utilize the effects, you would start having great fun. There are a number of movie effects available though you would need to download each effect individually to add to your videos. This is great in a way as you would never have to burden your phone with any effect which you don't need.
There are over 90 special movie effects available and this means that there are plenty of things you can accomplish with the FxGuru app. Whether you want to play a prank on your friend or you want to scare someone badly and whether you want to give your loved one some special laughs or you want to create realistic hoaxes, you can do it all with the effects available. From effects like skeletons and zombies to UFOs and robots and from tornadoes and earthquakes to dancing animals and gingerbread men, the possibilities are endless with the movie effects. The great thing about the app is that there is an introductory video about each effect which gives you an idea of how the effect can be used. However, it's up to you how you want to creatively incorporate the effect into your video. There is no time limit for the effects and you can create longer videos if you want through the app needs you to at least shoot a video for 30 seconds in order to ensure that the effect is correctly incorporated. A red marker is shown on the screen where the effect would appear and it helps in assessing how other elements can be incorporated in and around the effects.
There are great customization options available as well which make sure that you have total control over the quality of the video. You can choose between keeping the file size smaller or keep the quality higher. You can decide on the frame rate as well with Standard and Best options available. You can also decide whether you want the video's resolution to be Standard or HD. After every video is shot, the app also asks you to review these settings before it starts video rendering in order to add the special selected movie effect to the video. Once completed, you can check the video out and share it with your friends, family and the world through any of the apps installed on your phone.
