Video Star is a glitzy and an app for the video savvy that lets you record pop star-style videos using your iPhone or camera-enabled iPad. It’s not a serious video recording and editing program, but a lightweight app that uses a variety of effects to spice things up but i must mention that it is amazing.
Every good rock song must have a good video but professionally it costs a lot. Video Star lets you import an audio track from your iTunes library on your phone or iPad. Selecting the audio is the first thing you do when you create a new clip. You can tweak the audio clip by cropping it or adjusting the speed and the pitch. If you don’t want audio, you can just skip this step and move ahead.
Once the audio is selected, you can move on to the video making part of the app and for Video Star, it’s all about the effects. You can choose between different layouts, overlay icons like hearts or balloons, add blur, change the colour effects, use green screen and add borders and more. If the default set of customization are not enough, you can buy add-on packs for 99-cents using an in-app purchase but if u don’t want to spend that amount then you can jailbreak your device and use iAppCracker tweak to buy free in app purchases.
Video Star lacks any editing features, so you can’t go back and edit or omit a section of the video. Shooting a video with Video Star is a one take process, unless you use a more sophisticated app to crop and mix clips. When you are done recording, you can review the video in the app and save it to your camera roll or can also send it to someone via email or upload it to YouTube.
Video Star is perfect for teens and anyone else who wants to make lively or funny video using their iOS device. It would be a big hit at a birthday party or struggling musicians can use it to make a video for their band and then promote their song. It would also be great for parents who want to grab a quick video when their children are acting silly. If you are creative and plan your shots, you could use it to record an amateur music video, but one might have to use another app like iMovie to edit any imperfections or anomalies in the video just taken.
