Luminancer is a powerful one of a kind video effects app. It's modeled after classic analog synth hardware and is designed for live performances . It could be just the app you need to enhance a live VJ rig, create a music video, or just spend a moment manifesting yourself in the Luminiferous aether

This is the app for masters of lightwave painting.

Luminancer has been in the app store for 5 years and has been recognized for it’s early innovation and high performance. Skilled artists have utilized Luminancer in the flow arts of poi, fire, and hoop dancing. Luminancer can be found in use on the stage for headliner bands at major musical festivals and at the most underground rave parties.

How it works: By overloading the luminance channel with strobing colors and video feedback, Luminancer defines itself as an instrument of abstract video. Luminancer starts with a luminance threshold filter and sends it’s signal down a video processing pipeline modeled after the early innovations and machines of the pioneers of video art.

Luminancer is a truly independent app. It was conceived, developed, and designed by a single real person without any sort of external help or funding. The money raised from this app quite literally goes towards feeding my 2 children thank you and God bless.

Awesome BUT

Awesome app I love it but I hate that it always glitches and randomly doesn't save videos. I also don't like how it randomly refocuses and causes the video to be blurry. I feel as though the camera is not as good while using the app. Overall the app is awesome! Just very frustrating at times. It's definitely worth the purchase especially if these things get fixed 😊 I also wanted to say that I did turn my auto lock OFF and still the videos do not save sometimes 😥

One of the first and still the best!

Have been using this app since day one and
still use it all the time. The developer gets back with you almost instantly if there’s an issue and there are rarely any issues. The app is cool and easy to navigate and I love the UI.

There’s just something special about this app that allows me to make some really interesting affects.

Granted it doesn’t do everything like some people want it to but unfortunately in the iOS realm you have to use multiple apps sometimes.

I’ve been beta testing apps for over 10 years and I see the work/time that is put into making some of these apps and it is brilliant.

Always a fan of this app and always will be. Thank you for making it and I’ll tell you I still love love love the new icon!!! Sorry about rambling on but if you don’t have this app and you like video effects then this is an app you need in your arsenal!

Doesn’t work

I can’t get this app to work at all. Anytime I try to film from it or upload a video to edit it just crashes and exits the app

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear about the issues with the app. If you contact us we would like to figure out what is happening and improve the app.
