My Own Flip Book (Flippin Effects)
The user will gain the ability to transform existing Android videos or newly recorded videos into a memorable flipbook. Each flipbook can also be fully modified by adding color effects at anytime to a video, such as, black & white, antique, comic book, and many others. Flip forward, backwards or freeze, the choice is yours!
How it works:
The user would be able to choose a section of an existing video or record a new video, limited to roughly 30 seconds or less. The app would then cut the video into frame snapshots or frames per second (FPS) consisting of 1-10 FPS depending on the user’s choice. This allows the user to feel in control of their flipbook.
The user would then be able to select a color effect for the video. If the user decides they want a different effect, it can be changed at anytime. After the app renders the frames, the user would have the option of viewing their flipbook by either swiping the screen forward or backwards with their finger or selecting auto-play. The auto option would have a speed variation bar which allows the rate of flip to vary in increments from slow to fast. This bar could be placed horizontally on the base of the screen.
How it differentiates from similar products:
This app allows the user to add color effects to their flipbook. Each book conveys an authentic flipbook experience by purposely lowering the FPS of the recorded video. The app also allows the user to take a snapshot of any frame they stop on and save it to their Android device.
