Focos Live, a new video editing app for iPhone and iPad, allows users to add and adjust bokeh effect to their videos. 'Portrait videos' can be created using the app by using different aperture sizes, shapes, and more. The app also supports video editing features such as adjustment layers, speed ramping, keyframes, audio editing, exporting to various formats, and much more.

The app uses depth information from the various camera lens that iPhones and iPads now feature, to allow users to change focus on videos after capture. The focus point can be set to track objects in the video. The bokeh shapes can also be changes to apply unique creative looks to videos.
