Seven apps to create short videos with curious effects



Nowadays applications like Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat offer you an overwhelming amount of effects before creating stories. If you are looking for something simpler, we suggest seven simple applications to add effects to videos.



That is, instead of recommending complete video editors with a thousand and one options and effects, these applications serve to add a specific effect to a video, often with very interesting results.








Boomerang





If we talk about apps specialized in a video effect, few apps fulfill the premise more than Boomerang. It is an app that arrived in 2015 as a spin-off of Instagram and with a specific purpose: create videos with infinite loops.



The app has been abandoned since its last update in 2018, although it is still functional if you want the boomerang effect, but don't install instagram or Facebook, where Zuckerberg's company has incorporated the same feature in the story editor.

HyperZoom





HyperZoom is a simple application in which you can create effects of timelapse video with zoom effect. It is something like the effect of Hyperzoom (from which the app inherits the name), but low cost, using only the mobile.



To use the app you simply need to start recording and make a precise movement with your mobile. The app takes care of the rest, stabilizing and speeding up the video final to give it this curious effect.

Wigglegram





From the same author we have HyperZoom we have Wigglegram, which creates short videos that "wiggle", according to the literal translation of the name of the app. It is a bit difficult to get the hang of it, but the result is curious.

The result does not differ much from a boomerang, although it focuses more on hold a stabilized object and move the camera, in addition to having more options about its duration and frames that compose it.

Framelapse





Framelapse needs no introduction, as this veteran application is one of the most popular timelapse video creation apps. It's a simple way to create quality fast motion videos, even if your mobile does not have this mode on its camera.



Framelapse takes photos every customizable number of seconds and then takes them join them all to create a video that goes as fast as you have configured it. With a good tripod and a good view, the results can be spectacular.

Hyperlapse





Hyperlapse is an application created by Microsoft that came as an alternative to Instagram's Hyperlapse, which was never released for Android. It is an app to create fast motion videos of camera shake, unlike timelapse videos, where the camera is static.



Microsoft Hyperlapse hasn't been updated since 2016, but it still works the same as the first day. The video is recorded first and then the application processes it stabilizing and accelerating it at the speed you indicate.

Glitch video effects





Glitch is an application with which you can easily apply effects to videos. As its name indicates, most effects are related to glitches or various errors in the video, although there is a bit of everything.



Detuning effect, deformations and miscellaneous errors, the number of available effects is very varied and the application has options to include audio, apply filters and works for both videos and photos.

Tapee





Tapee is a new app with which you can record as if you had a VHS camcorder with the mobile. The result is quite good in its imitation, superimposing the date and time and with the typical effects and the poor quality -somewhat exaggerated- that we attribute to VHS.



The app has a retro interface that simulates the display of a camcorder and allows you to choose between several different effects, some of which are free ... and some of which are not. Unlocking all available effects is possible with a single payment of 4.39 euros.
