Better than Filmic Pro

I've used a lot of apps for shooting video for online and sales. This app is my go to app for consistent, high quality shooting. The full manual controls are easily accessible, as if they paid attention to that human interface design element in a big way. The huge issue that made me switch from Filmic pro to this one was that Filmic pro had a problem with making the screen dim dramatically after a few minutes of shooting. I shoot with 2 iPhones and an iPad with add on lenses, and the screen dimming is consistent across all devices regardless the screen or others setting on the devices or in the app. This makes Filmic pro nearly unusable in bright, natural lighting after several minutes. ProMovie doesn't have this problem at all. It even has screen brightness sliders in the app itself. It excels in every way, though I do have one request. The data rate on final shots are not always in the stated range. High quality will get you sometimes 100mbps, sometimes less - though the quality remains high, I would like it to reflect the settings more accurately. Other than that, this is my mainstay shooter now. Quite pleased with it.

My first video app I’ve bought. Love it.

I am a professional filmmaker. I wanted to use my cell phone to shoot a brand new series that I am producing and editing and hopefully selling to a production company or network.

I wanted to use my cell phone as opposed to fussing with my Canon camera and lenses. So I was researching, watching videos and reading reviews for weeks and everyone was saying that Filmic Pro was the app to use. At $15 for the app or $20 for the app plus the remote app, I didn’t want to spend that money for an application. So kept digging and found Pro Movie.

The morning of my shoot, I found a video where a guy did a side-by-side comparison with filmic pro and pro movie. I watched it while showering and getting dressed. Lol. He went to each feature and then shot video in the exact same location to compare apples with apples. He said he preferred pro movie over filmic pro. I love how the footage looked and decided to get Pro Movie. And at $2.99, it was right up my alley.

I downloaded it while I was on set and learned it before I did my first shot. It is super easy to use, the footage is dynamic and it is user-friendly. I do recommend having an external microphone because the audio may not be to the level that you want.

This Is definitely for those who want achieve professional looking video without the price and burden of buying a $1000 camera plus lenses, who want to use their cell phones and want to use a super easy app.

Overall Well-Rounded App

There is a lot to love about this app - the granularity of control is beyond other apps I’ve tried. I use this app for slow motion capture on my iphone 11, and the results are great, but every time I start the app it has lost all the settings and I have to reselect everything. Perhaps the most annoying part of that is it quietly switches from 1080p@240fps back to 60fps, and so the slow motion capture just doesn’t happen. Also, the control overlay does not fit on the screen correctly - the controls on the left are truncated off the screen, including the indicator for frame-rate. This app has been a long time favorite of mine despite these buggy issues on the iPhone 11. I really hope the developers are able to fix these issues, this app is still my favorite and I still give it five stars because it deserves five stars.
