You may be familiar with Facetune, the very popular selfie-editing app, but now the creators of that app, Lightricks, are releasing Facetune Video, which is designed to help you tweak selfie videos.
To start editing a video, simply select one from your camera roll. Once you do that it will start repeating in the app so you can start applying the changes in real time. There are a variety of options to work with, such as changing the brightness of the video, smoothing the skin, whitening the smile, and even changing the size of the nose and eyes. If you’ve used Facetune or Facetune2 before, you should feel right at home with Facetune Video.
Applying changes is easy, in my experience with a preliminary version of the application. For most tools, Facetune Video offers an on-screen slider to adjust the intensity with which the desired effect is displayed in a video. And if you want to compare your changes to your original video, there’s a handy toggle button that you can hold down.
Here is an example video I took that shows how Facetune Video works. I’ve rotated the “brightness” slider up and toggle between my original video to see how it compares:
The tools in Facetune Video seem like a practical way to touch up your videos before sharing them with friends or your social network of choice. And the abundance of options means you must have plenty of tools to experiment with to make sure your video looks the way you want.
Facetune Video is free, but some editing tools are not available unless you pay a subscription, which costs $ 7.99 per month or $ 35.99 per year. There is also the option to pay a one-time fee of $ 69.99 if you prefer.
Facetune Video is available to download for iOS today. Lightricks plans to launch it on Android in the future, says a Lightricks spokesperson. The edge.
