We believe new service offerings and income opportunities will arise for pro photographers across many segments, not to mention the highly disruptive potency of Cinemagraph images as a new communicative medium within the advertising industry.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Flixel Photos Inc., announced today the launch of Cinemagraph Pro for Mac, a professional yet easy-to-use tool for both photographers and enthusiasts to create beautiful living photos featuring moving elements.
Cinemagraph images seamlessly combine the effects of video capture and still photography, adding a new creative dimension to digital advertising all while offering the latest evolution in the art of photography. Whether it is hair blowing in the wind or a flickering fire in the background of an otherwise still image, the effect can be spellbinding.
Cinemagraph Pro for Mac is a major upgrade from the previous iOS-based creation tools. The software now includes support for UHD (4K) resolution video capture, proposes refined masking tools, seamless looping options and a wide range of filters. Creators can upload and share their mesmerizing living photos in high resolution to Flixel’s community as well as to a variety of social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
With an intuitive interface enabling fast and fluid editing, the creation process is simple. After shooting a short video, a user imports it into the application, selects the range of motion and applies Flixel’s unique “live-masking” technology, revealing in real-time the region of a still image that will move endlessly in a seamless loop.
Flixel also offers its audience the ability to embed living photos onto websites and blogs. The embeddable Flixel player hides the complexities of video on the web and provides a seamless experience that auto-plays and auto-loops in all browsers and platforms, including mobile. The company intends to lend its platform as a powerful tool for advertisers and marketers of all kinds.
“We are proud to be launching the next generation of Flixel technology,” said Philippe LeBlanc, Flixel’s co-founder and CEO. “We believe new service offerings and income opportunities will arise for pro photographers across many segments, not to mention the highly disruptive potency of Cinemagraph images as a new communicative medium within the advertising industry.”
Flixel’s Cinemagraph Pro for Mac is available for purchase on http://www.flixel.com and the Mac App Store. Cinemagraph Pro is priced at $199.99.
