Why adding a photo option?

This is not an improvement because the photo is a still image and doesn’t move around with the shapes. Also every video has the same algorithm and there is nothing you can do about that. Everytime the same motions in the same order. Change that instead of adding a photo option!

Reactie van ontwikkelaar ,

Thanks for your feedback. Although minimal you can decide on 3 properties to get animated, volume, rotation and glitch. Sorry to hear the photo feature is not for you. Others found it an expansion of their creative abilities. I’d appreciate if you reconsider your 2 star rating based on the whole instead of a newly added addition. We’re a team of 2 who worked on whorl as a passion project for 3 years now. Dankjewel. :-)
