Aspiring filmmakers on a shoestring budget have few options. Roland, the music company, has released a new iOS app that it says will allow users to create professional-quality video without equipment. The 4XCameraMaker app works by connecting the cameras of several iOS devices. With the app, filmmakers can shoot multiple angles of a scene with just one take.
"As the newest addition to Roland's collection of professional video products, the 4XCamera Maker provides creators with an all-in-one video production platform to take creators from the early stages of video capture to sharing the final product," wrote the company in a statement. The app allows users to perform multiple other functions on either an iPhone or iPad, like utilizing split-screen layouts, transitions, fading in and out and trimming raw footage. The app includes some simple editing tools, as well.
Users can upload their footage to master devices with a tap. Currently, the iOS app is available free of charge to users of Roland Go: Mixer and Go Mixer Pro, an audio mixing tool for smartphones.
