aNewDomain — If you’re one of the millions of people who share your life through YouTube or Vine, I suggest you check out Magisto Video for iOS or Android. Magisto lets you mash up your photos, videos and into a great video that’s optimized for online sharing.
I found the Magisto user interface to be intuitive and easy to follow. Just tap Create. That’ll walk you through an easy step-by-step content creation process. Start by selecting at least five photos and videos to be mashed up in your file.
Next, select a theme for your new video. The themes allow for the final product to have a certain look and mood. In my video, I wanted to present Little League football players getting ready for their first game. I thought the “adrenaline” theme would fit me best in this case.After selecting a theme, you’ll be able to select a soundtrack for your video. Magisto offers a variety of genres and tempos to fit your story. I went with “We Victorious” by Brian Lee. I’d never heard of the track or the artist, so I had no idea how it would sound. The title was fitting, though. Once all of the ingredients of your story are added, set the video length. Then finally confirm making the video and you’ll get a notification on your mobile device advising of its completion. If you don’t like the theme, soundtrack or other aspects of your story, you can edit it.
The story creation was simple and my results turned out quite well. I didn’t need editing software such as Windows Movie Maker of Adobe Premiere to get these results. Granted, those packages are more powerful, but the end result is still rather remarkable. Check out my final video.
