2.Invasion Of The B-Movie Poster

Okay, invasion of the B-movie poster is specifically designed and has some real flaws. Unfortunately the app was ever not been updated and crashes 7 therefore IOS happy times. Also stored the results only in a size of 320 x 480. Why we still mention the app? The concept is great and fun especially the friends of old trash-movies from the 60s and 70s. With a few inexpensive graphic effects such as flying saucers or bats, some filter & frame and movie titles such as “At Adventure in terror!”, “the man from planet 2” or “The House of Outlaws” in authentic fonts and designs is a photo fix to the iconic movie posters. You can find this embarrassing, it is but not necessary. Yet again the warning: the charm of the app would rather appreciate film fans with a penchant for the special. Furthermore she crashes on iOS 7 reproducible regularly once that before you roll a new image from the camera can download.

The maximum resolution for images is 2000 x 2000 to record videos at 640 x 640 living planet requires to obtain some practice to get good results, but worth the effort. The principle works in principle so that the upper part of an image, for example the sky around the remaining picture area “wrapped”, so that a small, round “planet” comes from this, protrude from the trees or other image retention. The effect is even more interesting, but also more difficult to implement for good results with videos. Various filters that round “worm hole” option for a reverse tiny planet effect, sharing options, as well as tips from the offer of the app. Although discussed here is “living planet” only for iOS available at Google play but can be found apps like tiny planet FX Pro, achieve similar effects.
