Sony releases motiongraph app; create a photo that moves

in Applications

The Sony Digital Network Applications (SDNA) team has released a new creative imaging application. The app called motiongraph allows you to create still images where a selected part of the image moves like a video. Think of it as an animated gif. It’s tricky to explain, but the video below shows how it works.

It involves using the app to create a very short video (typically around 2-3 seconds). You then need to swipe over the parts of the video that you want to move. Several editing features are also available allowing you to specify start and end times of the moving video, adjusting playback speed as well as reducing jitter. Once done you can save your creation and share it via email, twitter or Facebook. It is available in the Play Store for £0.83.

    It’s a really interesting app. Sadly I can’t buy anything (I’m minor). Not exactly the right thing to do, but a apk upload would be nice.

    Told you Sony is innovative. They just need money to continue their research, such as Crystal LED, Cell Processor ect.

  • Rammstone

    Funny how it says “This app is incompatible with all of your devices.” although all my three devices are Sony.

  • Rvk

  • ismailchenko gasmi

  • Avery Navas

    like what? i want to try it but… i think im not creative enough?

  • Adrian

    Very nice. Thanks Sony for giving us new cool stuff.

  • Felipe Pimenta

    Did you guys read why it isn’t compatible? It’s due region lock, not device lock. You’d have to access it from your phone using a Market Enabler, with Japan as area. Then buy the app, and only then, if you want, upload for us (it’s paid, I know, but…)

  • Keon Fraites

    I really want this app, However it says it isn’t compatible with my Sony Xperia S? How so!?

  • APai

    yeah, I initially thought it did. disappointed with sony for not including their supposed flagship. wth sony?

  • iboalali

    you’re absolutely right, but Nokia had it first on the Lumia

  • ismailchenko gasmi

    Oh i’m sorry i never buy apps i just download them from Google because i don’t have a credit card ! i’m sure that it will be available in Google soon .

  • rhenanbelem
