Editors’ Notes

Static photos are great. But there have been times looking back on our favorite shots that we wish we had captured a video instead. Fortunately, acting without foresight doesn’t mean your images have to stay static. With Motionleap you can add real-world drama back into your shots and bring your still photos to life. And it’s far easier than you might expect.

Excellente appli

Ça faisait longtemps que je ne croyais plus aux appli efficaces pour le traitement d’image sans devoir payer une fortune, cette appli est simplement géniale avec en plus énormément de possibilités et c’est gratuit, avec des options payantes évidemment mais pour ceux qui veulent aller plus loin ça vaut le coup !

Peu utile...?

L'app n'est pas claire dans son business model et c'est dommage car contrairement à ce qui est dit dans un certain nombre de commentaires il est tout à fait possible de l'utiliser gratuitement. Seulement en incitant dès le début à payer (et cher !) on a l'impression qu'il n'est pas possible de faire autrement qu'en passant à la caisse.

Mon principal problème avec l'app vient plutôt du fait que contrairement à ce qui est sous-entendu dans la description, elle ne tire pas du tout partie des photos Live d'iOS. Ou alors cela n'a fonctionné avec aucune des trois que j'ai essayé...
Au final la fonctionnalité maîtresse de l'application est une sorte de Puppet Wrap de Photoshop pour ceux qui connaissent, avec des vecteurs. L'idée peut être bonne mais peu de photos de prêtent à cet usage et lorsque l'on voit les tarifs, l'app semble réservée aux pros alors que cet effet est facile à obtenir de façon plus maîtrisée avec d'autres
Comme pour les autres applis du dev donc, de très beaux exemples pour la demo mais dans les faits ne donnera que rarement un résultat aussi convaincant.
