  • Make Professional Videos on the iPhone with ReelDirector

    video via nexvio

    ReelDirector is a surprisingly full-featured video-editing app that extends the video capabilities of the iPhone, allowing you to create a professional looking movie without uploading clips to your computer.

    Like the iPhone native video editor, you can trim video clips. ReelDirector starts with the same functionality, then adds the ability to overlay text in four styles to any one of nine positions on the screen. You can add clips to your video project, and then use the "timeline" interface to drag and drop clips into position. Clips can be cut together directly, or you can select from a palette of 27 transition effects to merge them.

    Once you've laid out your video, you can preview it immediately on your screen. Videos can be saved to the Camera Roll or emailed from your phone.

    It's a pretty slick piece of work for $7.99 on the App Store. And apparently, enough people agree to make ReelDirector number 60 on the Top Grossing Applications list.

      This looks like a nice addition to the lacking editing options.

      Program looks great! I'm surprised Apple hasn't included this functionality themselves.

      it'd be nice to see some functionality of this app to work on the 3G, you can do the video toggle and everything, but it wont load into the app, it gets stuck at trimming or something of the sort, could there be a possible fix?

      The 3GS does not do time lapse within its own options. It must be a feature of ReelDirector.

      Nice features! Just when you think we have enough features out comes a new app.

      My only problem is I can't make videos that are recorded in landscape. The text only shows up in portrait correctly. In landscape it shows up vertical. Also lack of the option to change font. Other than that it's awesome.

      I installed it, and am able to get reeldirector to acknowledge the videos in the camera roll but when I click on use video clip it seems to be at trimming video forever w/out actually continuing.
