Motion FX

1.1.4
01 November 2014

Create real-time video effects on your built-in camera.

Overview

Motion FX lets you create stunning real-time video effects using your computer's camera.

Simply select your favorite preset effect, and create an incredible visual experience by moving in front of your computer's camera. A preset cycling mode lets you automatically cycle through effects without lifting a finger. You can also use the Face Tracking technology of OS X Lion to emit effects from any faces visible to your camera.

If you want more personalization, there are more options you can play with in Motion FX. Color Detection lets you select a color from the live camera feed from which to emit effects, and with Effect Paint you can play with fluids using your trackpad or mouse. Video Warp mode lets you distort live video using your mouse or trackpad.

Lose yourself in the swirling dreamscape of Motion FX!

Decent app, price is right. It's usefulness is questionable, as this feels like a proof of concept type thing. Fun to play with for a few minutes and then relagated to the trash eventually. This does spin up the old fans though, which I assume is from the heavy graphics card use. However, it's rare that I hear my fans come on nowadays, so this was a bit odd. Overall, keep an eye on it, but hopefully it will mature into something more than a gimmicky one-trick item.

Fun. What a strange word. One day you will (or maybe you wont) find a small meaningless need for this app then suddenly it will be useful. Not every app needs to be installed and used daily to be considered a quality app.
