Just a suggestion

Unlike many others who use Videostar, I make animations using it. I draw all of my frames, then import them using the “insert photo” button. This has made animating very easy for me! It works really well too!

The only problem is, I would like to be able to use a transparent png, so it’s only the character moving and the background is the transparent part.

I would like to use gifs for my background animation you see.
The only way to do this is to import the transparent animation into an alternative program to put the layers together.

Though I can’t do this due to the fact videostar gives you a background, without anything to do about it. The only thing that WOULD work for this would be to edit it out using photoshop. That’s already three different programs!

A tip that would make all of these problems go away would be to add layers to videostar. Maybe add a button that can add layers like you would in an art program?? So there can be different effects on different layers! Please make this happen! It would be so much easier!


(Yes I am aware of the “multi layer” function. But that acts more as a transitioning function, and not a layer option you could find in an art program.)

Since the app is making videos and Apple doesn't support transparent videos there's only so much we can do about that. But, yes, we are looking into getting transparency working for some of the places that use photos. And multi-layer is probably your best bet for doing "layering" ... it doesn't have to be used for transitions/keyframes. You could use record with a gif loaded and make one clip, then load that clip as #1 in multi-layer then tap layer 2 and photo to bring in your photo you want over it.

It’s good and bad. I love the app because I love editing and making those Instagram edits, but it’s not that good that you have to pay to make transitions, or get effects. I’m using cute cut pro right now, but you can’t warp or put motion blur or add cool effects, so I went on videos star and I saw you have to pay for everything...
solution: make a “video star pro” app and you can get most things for free, but you have to pay for the app (like 20 dollars or something).
I see people’s edits and they look so good on video star, but when people download it and try it out, they burn out their money right away! *PLEASE CONSIDER*

You can do that right now: open the app, tap the lightning bolt icon, tap "All Access Pass" and get the Gold Pass. It unlocks everything in the app now ... and added to the app in the future for one, low price!

@sqftlele ,

please read!! (also gr8 app btw)

hey! so uhm i dont think youve read my little suggestion about the shadow thingy. so you know how texts have shadows you can edit in the text screen thingy yeh? can we please do the same with pictures/videos in multi-layer? i know that we can use the outline fuzzy colour but it doesnt really change the opacity and where the shadow is (like the left, right or diagonal to the picture/video). i dont really like to use two pictures for each purpose, like one at the back for shadows and one at the front which is the actual picture/video. and also, when we’re using the master option and we’re on a singular layer, can you please let us use a colour? like after i put in a master layer option thingy, it wont let me add tracking blur to any of the layers. i mean, it does let me but it never works. another question! so theres an option for you to mask a picture after tapping “add mask”. would it be okay if you could add the mask option as a colour in multi-lauer? if you guys could add these features itd be great help! sorry for the really long paragraph 😣
