The best way to get started with Cinemagraph Pro is by watching the Introduction to Flixel Cinemagraph Pro for iOS tutorial below. It'll help you gain a better understanding of where the features are located and how to apply them before creating your first cinemagraph!
The editing process in Cinemagraph Pro for iOS will be broken down into 4 sections: Timeline, Brush, Adjustments and Filters. In the Timeline section you'll adjust your trim, loop and edit your still image. In the Brush section you'll paint a mask on your image to reveal your cinemagraph. You can then transform your cinemagraph and make adjustments to the color, lighting and more or apply an existing filter for a more stylized look.
Drag the in and out points of your trim selection on the timeline to adjust the length of your cinemagraph. As you're doing this, you'll see an overlay of your first or last frame. This will help you match up your first and last frame as best as possible to ensure a seamless transition between repeat loops. Your trim can be up to 10 seconds long though typically only a few seconds are required.
Move the white marker anywhere on your timeline to select your still image.
There are two types of loops you can select for your cinemagraph. A bounce loop will play your cinemagraph from the beginning to end and reverse continuously. A repeat loop will play your cinemagraph from the beginning to end and repeat continuously.
The crossfade function is only available for repeat loops; it refers to the transition between the end and beginning of your trim.
Increase the delay to add an element of surprise to your cinemagraph.
Increase or decrease the speed of your cinemagraph for a more cinematic effect.
You can edit your still image in-app using the Adobe Creative SDK integration. Tap Edit to make adjustments, add text, apply an overlay and much more. You can also export and import your still image.
Use the brush tool to paint a mask on the areas where you want the movement from your video to appear. You can also adjust the size, hardness and opacity of your brush for a precise mask.
The eraser tool has the same functionalities as the brush tool. Use the eraser tool to unmask your cinemagraph and replace the movement from your video with the still image.
In the Adjustments section you can transform your cinemagraph to rotate or flip vertically and horizontally. You can also adjust color, exposure, contrast, saturation and vignette.
In the Filters section you can instantly preview a variety of filters. You can make adjustments to existing filters by going back to the Adjustments section as well.
