Film Genie is the way to add hollywood quality visual effects and animations to any video. Featuring 13 Intros, Frames, and Loops, the app transforms plain videos into professional video productions. Film Genie works with existing or newly shot video, standard, or high definition footage, and videos shot in portrait or landscape orientation. Seven different Effects Expansion Packs, which add an additional 41 effects, are available as in-app purchases.

Film Genie goes beyond typical film grain and color correction. It combines the phenomenal quality of professional effects software with the portability and simplicity of iOS. Mix and match multiple effects to add depth and enhance realism.

Film Genie is the perfect companion to iMovie (and other video apps) for creating any type of video project!

iPad with Retina display, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S support videos at 1080p!

The app includes three different kinds of effects: Intros, Frames, and Loops. A sampling of each kind comes as part of the 13 effects included in the free download. For example, an Intro is a professional animation that precedes the video and provides an Introduction to it. The Curtain Draw depicts a red velvet, theater curtain that opens slowly to reveal the video playing behind it. Frames are still masks that literally frame the video, such as the Art Frame, where an elaborate, gilded, golden wood frame enhances the video by placing it within a context. Finally, Loops are professional animations that are superimposed over the video, like Carbonation, where multi-sized, transparent bubbles of water fizz across the video, rising from the bottom to the top.
