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 !

Victime de sa popularité

Bonjour, J’ai trouvé cette application grâce à « TikTok ». Initialement, je n’ai pas besoin d’application de montage, cependant elle possédait une fonctionnalité qui m’intéressait beaucoup pour réaliser des vidéos et des projets de façon plus facile et efficace. Par conséquence, je l’ai téléchargé et les deux premiers mois, elle m’a été très utile pour mon plaisir personnel mais je n’avais pas encore eu de projet qui nécessité cette fonctionnalité que je ne trouvais nul part ailleurs de façon gratuite. Aujourd’hui, j’en ai eu besoin et c’était avec joie que j’ai sauté sur l’application pour utiliser l’option « animer (des images) »; puis avec horreur de voir que celle-ci était devenue payante ! Je ne peux pas me permettre de payer un abonnement pour l’utiliser deux/trois fois dans l’année : surtout à ce prix !! L’abonnement est trop cher, je préfère avoir eu besoin de regarder des publicités toutes les 2 minutes que payer autant. Je suppose que cette fonctionnalité est devenue payante après la fameuse trend TikTok où on devait animer des photos sur une musique.. fort dommage de profiter de cette côte de popularité pour rendre cette fonctionnalité 100% payante au lieu de mettre payant avec une limite de temps ou de qualité comme avant.
