Animoto video," said
Similar to the functionality also available on Animoto.com, the Animoto iPhone application utilizes high-end motion design and music-analyzing technology to automatically create videos from users' selected photos and music. Users can select up to sixteen photos on their iPhone, pick a song from Animoto's music collection, and Animoto takes care of the rest, returning a unique video orchestration with the visual energy of a music video and the emotional impact of a movie trailer. Users can then remix their video into a wholly new piece or add it to their collection and start another one.
The Animoto iPhone application was first introduced in the iTunes store on
"We're very pleased with the initial reaction to the Animoto iPhone app and are already working on our next version which will increase the feature parity with Animoto.com," Jefferson said.
The heart of Animoto is its Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology that thinks like an actual director and editor using the same sophisticated post-production skills and techniques that are used in television and film. The technology takes into account every nuance of a song: the genre, song structure, energy, rhythm, instrumentation, and vocals. No two videos are ever the same; even videos generated with an identical set of images and music will each have a completely distinct set of motion design. Videos are produced in widescreen format to utilize the full iPhone screen and can easily be shared through email.
