Prisma for iOS Adds Video Support, GIFs Coming Soon


Photo filter app Prisma has been updated with support for video. GIF support is also in the cards. The update is available for iOS users only for now.

Prisma for iOS Updated with Filtered Video Support - Android Users Might Have to Wait This One Out

Prisma received a major update on iOS today, adding support for video and applying filters to them. But do keep in mind that the video feature only works on devices that are running iOS 10. If you have an iPhone running iOS 9.x or below, then you're absolutely out of luck as there is no support for older firmware.

The complete changelog of the update as per the App Store is as follows:

Introducing Video!

We're excited to bring you a new way of self-expression.
You can now turn your memories into moving artworks using unique video styles!

Pick a file from gallery or shoot up to 15 seconds of video through the Prisma camera to add an artist’s touch to it.
The processing is done locally. No Internet connection is needed.

We're looking forward to what you'll create.

Prisma team with love.

The great thing about video filters is that processing is done locally on your iPhone, so you do not have to worry about data at all. But there's one thing you should be well aware of: the processing may take quite a while depending on the model of your smartphone.

Just to put things into perspective, Prisma takes around a couple of minutes to process video on an iPhone 6. So obviously, if you have an older device, that duration will be marginally greater.

Apart from support for video, GIF support is also on the cards so you can rest assured you will be sending those cat GIFs completely filtered up in AI-artsy style. Last but not the least, Android users will get video support, eventually, but they will have to wait it out.

Do let us know in the comments below what you think about today's update. In the meantime, I will try my best to create something share-worthy using the new Prisma video feature.

Let's hope I don't fail.
