Create Your Own Music Video With Video Star [iOS]

video star   Create Your Own Music Video With Video Star [iOS]When it comes to photography and video apps for the iPhone and other iOS devices, developers keep coming up with amazing fun programs for all ages. Point in case, a popular five-star app called Video Star, which mixes karaoke and music videos for some crazy fun productions.

Video Star enables you to create music video based on lip-syncing a song track in your video supported iOS device. You simply launch the app, choose a song like Donna Summers “Last Dance,” record yourself or someone else to lip-sync the song, and add special effects as you record the production. In a matter of minutes you can produce and share your music video.

Here’s a sample video that shows just such a production:

 

How It Works

For the most part, Video Star is fairly intuitive, but let’s walk through how it works and get acquainted with some of its less obvious features. After you launch the app, simply tap the plus button and choose a song from your iTunes library. Video Star will also connect to the iTunes Music Store so you can download songs directly to your device.

At this point you can preview the song, select OK, and moved to the next step to the Recording. But notice also you can tap the Adjust button to change the speed and pitch of the song.

For a quick fun production, you simply tap the Record button and lip-syc the song. Because you’re not recording audio, you can actually sing out loud and your voice won’t be recorded.

If you record yourself, of course you need to select the front facing camera. As you do the recording, you can tap one of a dozen special effects that will be added to your production instantly as they are selected. You can tap different effects as you record to match the beats and changes in the song.

You can also stop the recording, change the scene, and then resume the song and recording. When you’re done you can preview the production, or edit the last scene. Or you can simply Start Over and do a second take.

You can make your video as fun and crazy as you like, but if you want it to look a little more professional, remember to not look into the screen itself, but move your eyes in the direction of the camera lens. Video Star gives you a little visual reminder before the recording actually starts.

After saving a production, you can select Edit – Modify on the homepage to get access to a wide range of other editing features, including fade-in and fade-out transitions, as well as Blur, Shutter, Jerky, and Flicker effects. There are also buttons for adjusting the brightness, color, and saturation of the video.

Justine, I don’t quite understand what you mean. Are referring to a movie editor like Final Cut Pro, and then adding music tracks to your production?

Awesome. I’m going to make some really dumb stuff with this.

Lol, true. I’ve been trying to get my kids to play around with it during their summer break, and for some reason they don’t seem that interested. I think it’s really cool. There’s enough there to wet your imagination.

Nelhortaleza, I’m not sure. You will have to look that up on the Android app site.
