"Edit your videos in real-time"

Reviewed by / Jun 07, 2011

This app lets you add effects and masks while recording.

There aren't many video editing tools released. We believe that in due course they'll be more and more common. It also will require more powerful devices with better cameras.

For the meantime, an app as Videocam Illusion couldn't be so interesting, but doesn't look bad either. It has just a few, but powerful, features.

Its main features are several filters, masks and effects. We can play with them at the same time we record a video, but not afterward. So it'd be better to try it out beforehand, because you won't be able to undo your changes later.

Maybe the filters are too loud so there should be more control over them. In our opinion, the best options are light tunnel and fast (+33%) recording. Try to record a home sci-fi video to understand what we mean.

There are adds at the upper side of the screen, but they disappear when you play your video. There's a paid version without ads and a few more features at your disposal. Last but not least, audio worked fine on the device where it was tested.

It's as easy to imagine a better video editing tool as it had to be difficult to develope it. In conclusion, a very nice app but it'll be overtaken eventually. After all, Mobile Illusion specializes in photo and video applications.

    Unimaginative, uninspired, sophomoric.

    I filmed the majority of my video for my class project with this and now I cant access the videos outside of the app. I cant email or dropbox it. And redoing the video isnt an option when you had 2 people in full halloween monster makeup...
