7 Apps To Create Cinemagraphs On Your Smartphone

Previously, we showed you how to create Cinemagraphs, still photos with subtle motions made to suspend your belief or just for fun. Simply put, cinemagraphs create GIF animations with small elements that move while the rest of the picture stays static. They give a pretty awesome effect when done correctly. But having a cinemagraph-making app on your Windows PC gives you a slight disadvantage: you have to transfer your clips into your PC before you can start making your cinemagraphs.

On the smartphone or tablet however, your videos are already in your gallery and if it’s not good enough, you can just shoot a video clip on the spot before running an app that can help you make a cinemagraph.

Today, we are listing 7 apps to help you create cinemagraphs on your smartphone or tablet. With the help of these apps, the creation of cinemagraphs is simple, fun, and now at your fingertips. Best of all, they all have the share option to help put your cinemagraph on the Internet in no time.

Cinemagraph Apps for iPhone

To create cinemagraphs with this free app, start by recording a video with your iPhone. Hold your iPhone steady to get a better end result. It does not matter how long the video is, you just need a small portion of the recording. The small segment you extract from your recording will be used as the static element of the cinemagraph.

To create the animation, highlight the area which you want to animate. Next, change the speed of your cinemagraph and choose to play it forward, in reverse or in a forward-and-reverse loop.

You can then preview your cinemagraph and add filters. Once that’s done, you can post it on the app itself, or on your favorite social networking site (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr). The app also supports hashtags and geotags.

Using Cinemagr.am is very much like Instagram; you have your own profile where friends can follow your uploads and like or comment on it – even the navigational buttons have similar functions. You also can ‘repost’ what other users have uploaded. [Free]

Most of these cinemagraph-making apps require you to have a steady hand while recording; to address this shakiness, this app, Flixel wil let you know if your video is too shaky while processing your recording. You get only 4 seconds of recording time, which once processed can be trimmed, have filters added to it or looped.

From here, there are 2 routes that you can take: either save it as a fully animated clip or create a cinemagraph by tapping the ‘Cinemagraph it’ button. When tapping that button, you highlight the area which you want animated. Once that is finished, your cinemagraph is ready and you can now share it.

There is a number of sharing options to choose from: Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or by email. You can also save it without sharing, keeping the cinemagraph private for your own viewing pleasure, or save it as an MP4 or GIF file on your iPhone’s Camera Roll. [Free]

There are three steps to creating a cinemagraph with Echograph. The first is to trim the duration of the video; it allows your clip to be 5 seconds or less. You do this by adjusting the front and back sliders of the playback bar. In this step, you can also reverse or add a pause to the end of your clip to compliment the effect you’re trying to achieve.

Secondly, choose your still frame (the static backdrop) of your cinemagraph. You can choose this still frame from any point of your original video by using the slider on the playback bar. Lastly, highlight the areas that you want to animate. As you can imagine, the combination of the still frame in step two and animated area of step three will give you a cinemagraph.

Then you can save it as a low- or high-definition cinemagraph and share it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or by email. You can also share it with the Echograph team for a chance to be listed as a ‘Staff Pick’ on their website. [$1.99]

Creating cinemagraphs or ‘Kinos’ is quite simple. You start out by recording a 3 second long video or trim a video from your camera library. Then, add filters and highlight the area you want to animate – so far it’s a typical cinemagraph app.
