Does your video suffer from the shakes? Perhaps it needs a dose of Emulsio! Equally at home on iPhone or iPad, Emulsio is an impressive app that will stabilize unsteady footage, remove unwanted rolling-shutter artifacts (a.k.a. “jello-cam”), and make you the envy of millions (that last part is not guaranteed).
Simply import a shaky video from your iThing’s camera roll, let the app analyze your clip’s motion, move a slider to control how much stabilization you want to apply (higher settings result in greater cropping), and then export the results back to your camera roll or distribute it via the iOS share panel. The whole process is remarkably simple. One feature worth pointing out is Emulsio’s ability to apply its stabilization magic to 120fps videos shot on an iPhone 5s — something your iDevice’s default stabilization feature won’t even attempt.
The app is free to try, but requires a $1.99 in-app purchase to remove the 30 second time limit and watermark. That price is expected to go up after April 5th. Bottom line: If you shoot video with your iPhone or iPad, and you don’t have a Steadicam vest permanently attached to your chest, Emulsio should be a part of your arsenal. Period. Need a little more convincing? It just won Best of Show at this year’s expo. Boom!
