Add markers during playback and export them to a range of common marker formats.


View 4:3 and 16:9 title and action safe areas over your movie.

What’s New

Version 1.7.5

* CinePlay no longer uses OpenGL, which fixes some bugs / glitches and increases compatibility with future versions of iOS. This also necessitated the removal of the Kollaborate CDL coloring feature. Our recommended replacement is to use an Upload Workflow on Kollaborate to bake a LUT into a proxy.
* Fixed a crash that could occur at startup
* Lots of UI / polish tweaks
* General bug fixes, tweaks and optimizations

Great for marking up video

I use this app to mark up hockey videos I record of my son’s travel hockey team. I export the markers, through email, to a server that creates clips based on the markers using Python scripts. The main thing I’d love to see is keyboard shortcuts to create a marker, jump between markers, play/pause, and and go frame by frame as I use my iPad Pro to film and mark them up.

It's the start of something useful

It's a nice start, but there are a few interface bugs (like video starts playing when you close the settings screen). The big disappointment (and huge part of the reason I bought it) is to mark up videos and notes for a review for the editor. You can add markers… but you can't label them or add a note. What's the point? We need to be able to add a marker, call up a keyboard, label it, and add notes. Later, we need to have list level access to the marker titles (to jump around), and to be able to export them (timecode, title & note) for the editor to use. Even better would be the ability to import an exported marker list and merge it with other exported lists from the same video so all comments can be in a single place in relation to the video being reviewed.
