Microsoft comes out with a new video stabilization app called Microsoft Hyperlapse. Check out how it fares in our Review of Microsoft Hyperlapse.
Ever envied those professional videographers for how they could create seamless, stable videos? Sure you have! We all have.
Don’t worry if you don’t have all that professional equipment or even the skill, because Microsoft comes to save the day with a cool new app.
Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile App, an app designed to convert time-lapse videos into smooth stable watchable ones.
Review: Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile App Offers Awesome AV Stabilization
Say goodbye to pre-loaded image/video stabilizing apps, hello Hyperlapse. Launched for Windows and Android platform, Hyperlapse is available on the Google Play Store as well as the Windows Store.
How Does Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile Work
Not surprisingly, gyroscopic or accelerometer data features (the phone dependent features that are usually used to approximate distances and movements) cease to be used in Hyperlapse Mobile, contrary to the iOS counterpart launched by Instagram.
Microsoft rather takes the aid of software algorithm data, to stabilize images (making up your video), thereby delivering cleaner, sharper and more stable videos in its quest.
Here’s where it scores, unlike other editing apps that concern themselves with the overlying facets only.
Face Recording yields great results, as the process involves stitching together of pixels, thereby giving a complete idea of what is a flawless recording with minimal disturbance.
Microsoft also launches a desktop version of the app called Microsoft Hyperlapse Pro with more features, check it out here .
How To Use Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile App
The user has the option of recording a video with Hyperlapse on, or editing/stabilizing pre-recorded videos. Video speed is set to default, although it’s adjustable and you can change the same.
The former turns out to be more exciting, adjusting itself to the ambiance and setting filters and effects accordingly.
However, speed once set, applies throughout the video, without the much-needed option of resetting the speed at critical junctures. Or else, easier still, import an already recorded video.
Alter a few defaults, and you have a moderated version. Taking a cue from the Nokia Lumia Camera, Hyperlapse works fine in low lighted conditions as well.
A huge advancement, if you ask me, in the field of time-lapse Video Recording. It satisfies and guarantees a better recording experience, if not viewing.
Features of Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile
The following features make Hyperlapse a must-have for all the recording enthusiasts out there:
- Simple user techniques, as simple as using simple apps like Retrica or Instagram.
- Easy-to-share features; you can upload the edited/recorded videos easily to social media and the web.
- Video import facilities make Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile a must-have for all who love to be behind the lens (and in front of it).
- If you’re recording speedy videos, with a lack of faces and elements in your frame, be prepared for getting that extra punch of 3D effect while recording with Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile.
Answering the question that matters the most, Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile is free on the Google Play Store .
Though there’s an ad that plays before you record and the MS logo at the end, it’s still really nothing for an app this awesome.
