Here's how to get started with this app.
Go to your app store, and type in Lomotif – find the light blue app and scroll through the page for more information while you download.
During the sign-up process, you can choose whether to go through email or connect with your Facebook account. Bonus: whichever you choose, you are not obligated or tricked into paying for any features.
Once you're taken to the home page, Lomotif will ask you for access to your media (in order to use for creating your video masterpieces!) as well as your contacts (if you'd like to invite or follow friends from your contacts). On the home page, you can also scroll through the "Features" or "Following" videos already uploaded to the app from other users.
The social aspect of this app allows you to invite friends, follow other users (the coolest ones are recommended for you) and receive notifications whenever someone interacts with your video.
Now it's time to start making your video. On the pink Loopascoop opening page, click the + (Start Now) icon to begin. You will then be taken to your gallery to pick the media content (both video and photo) you'd like to use for the visual aspect of your video. You can choose from your own gallery, OR you can choose from the "Motifs" section – allowing you to use other content to edit.
Go through the videos and select the one you'd like to edit, and now it's time to pick a song to accompany your video.
You may pick from your own playlist of music on your device, or you can choose suggested songs given to you – don't worry, no elevator music. The songs provided are popular hits!
Once you've finished selecting all your media, the items will process and then you are directed to the "Create" page where your video (and/or picture slideshow) is about to be transformed. Once on this page, the app will give you some editing tips to help you get started.
Let's have a look at the editing features and options that are provided for you. These include:
-Sound adjustments to your chosen music
Once you're happy with your creation, it's time to save and add to your profile. When you save your video, you can add a caption, save to your own gallery and also choose who is allowed to see the video. You can also share your video on several social media platforms for others to see.
The video is then added to your profile. You will notice the two sections – "In Progress" and "Lomotifs". The "Lomotifs" section is for your completed works, and the "In Progress" section is for the videos you have started that you'd like to spend more time on later.
Just a reminder that you can use both videos and photos for your video.
On your profile, click on the settings icon if you'd like to make any changes to your profile, account, followers and link your account to other social media platforms.
This app is such a fun and creative way for people to create their own short films or light slideshows in their hands!
