FxGuru: Movie FX Director is a tool that allows you to convert any video that you have made using your Android device (no matter how boring or bland it is) into a Michael Bay movie complete with spaceships, war robots, meteorites that fall from the sky and many, many explosions.
We know that video editing is one the unresolved matters for Android. There are just several apps able to cut and paste and merge clips on the go, but there are even less apps able to add special effects to your videos beyond hipster Instagram-like filters. FxGuru may not be our dreamed video editing app, but it’s fun, works reasonably in an easy and straightforward way and offers quite quality results.
The app comes with only three starting effects to start playing with: satellite fall, background UFO and exploding barrels. If you want to enjoy bazookas, meteors, more UFOs and molotov cocktails you will have to download -thence pay for- them apart.
FXs are set at the same time you are shooting your video thanks to a on-screen grid and a timer. After a first attempt, you will get the hang of it. Likewise, you will realize how zoom in and zoom out options would have been a great addition to this app.
Using the app is child’s play. You just have to choose the video that you want to work with, look at the image in question (it’s better if the video was taken using a tripod) and add one of the three free effects that are available (you have to pay for the rest of them).
Once you choose the effect that you want to use, you just have to use the tip of your finger to draw where you want the effect to appear in your video. After you do so, the app will process the changes for a few seconds and you’ll be set, with an action video that is ready to be shared on any social network, including Facebook, Twitter or YouTube.
