Prisma, the application that has taken the photo editing applications world by storm is set to revolutionize its segment and unleash its’ users artistic video liberty by introducing a new set of filters.
The popular app has been marked as a success ever since its June iOS release, shortly followed in July by its Android version, as it allowed its users to transform their photos into actual works of art thanks to its wide array of filters varying and encompassing a great number of styles. The app makes use of artificial intelligence in order to power its great variety of patterns, famous ornaments or worldwide famous artists styles such as Picasso or Munch.
As each update added new members to an ever-increasing gallery of effects, the latest innovation to be introduced by the Prisma creators is the ability to transform one’s 15-second videos. The feature, available at the moment only for the iOS system, will number initially a series of 9 filters, as follows: Candy, Curly Hair, Cold Fish, Illegal Beauty, Paper Art, Roy, Tokyo, and The Scream.
The possibility for video filters emerged after Prisma’s developers made changes to the application’s algorithms. The app formerly stored and worked the effects from its servers, but now, thanks to their move to the device’s servers, new paths will be opened towards an artistic video liberty. The algorithm changes will basically transform one’s videos into playable animations that, just like with pictures, can be individualized and transformed into animations. This can also open the way not only for new types of video (with a predicted increase in quality), it also means that the users could be given the opportunity of creating Gif’s.
With the Android support still in development, Prisma announced that the video processing time will depend, as it was to be expected, on the device’s technical power. According to the developers, the average conversion rate for a 15-second video should be of about 1 minute on an iPhone 6S whilst on an iPhone 7, the expected conversion rate for the same video period would take about 30 seconds.
New video filters are set to be released soon enough, and it is important to note that the new feature can as well be used when offline, just as in the case of photo effect, so that there is nothing in the users’ artistic video liberty’s path.
