New Movie Creator app lands on the Xperia Z2 – Automatically creates short films from existing photos/videos

Xperia Movie Creator_3Sony has released a new application this morning for the Xperia Z2 called “Movie Creator”, with build number 2.0.A.0.9. The Xperia Movie Creator automatically creates short videos of around 30 seconds in length using existing photos and videos. The idea is very similar to Google+’s Auto Awesome Movie mode.

The software will automatically determine the timeline to create its movie – so it could take a selection of photos/videos from a Saturday afternoon, or for a three-day period or for a week. When the film is created you will be notified (notifications can be turned off in the settings).

These ‘Highlight Movies” can be edited – you can change titles, delete scenes or even change the music. Videos can then be exported to use in other apps or to be shared. It’s a nice idea from the videos we checked out. The application is available to download OTA (9.9 MB) via the Update Centre right now. If you haven’t received the update yet, the APK can be downloaded here.

Update: The Movie Creator app is also hitting the Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z Ultra.

    You should be allowed to add your own videos cause some of the ones it has chosen aren’t great. Otherwise it’s pretty damn good

    Very good initiative. copied to Google+, but there was a possibility of improvement.

    No possibility to add comments, adjustments, the lengths only 30 seconds. “Sony make believe” There’s better to do!! bad copy to paste

  • serendipity1002

    Exactly, just got a notification from Sony Update about this app on my Z Ultra. kinda excited and then all i got is this stupid screen, huge bummer

  • Hiro

    I just installed the app and it doesn’t show this screen. It automatically created a vídeo from last year of a hiking activity. This app doesn’t let you choose photos, instad of that you can choose which one to delete and only choose from a few music samples. So, in resume, it’s a very SIMPLE APP that tries to look for activities in your photo album and automatically choose the best photos and music to make the video. We can’t make a video with our own will, so if the app doesn’t detect an activity it simply doesn’t do anything! I guess the app in my phone detected a lot of video and photo activity (period of time) with similar background (green and grey from the rocks and trees), and generated the video.

    I think it’s a good app, just for quick and atomatically generated animation to upload. If you want to deeply edit a video then download another app from the market.

  • jad

    same for me here on xperia Z1

  • HS Chong

    I get the notification of installing this apps in update center but the details of this app is not showing as above. There is a blank page without any information in the update center.
    After installed the app, the app stuck at the first page which is the image of few birds flying.
    Anyone know what is the problem?

  • budir79

    Cannot add or edit photo, only can delete photo…

  • lorikarte Turkiye

    Same for me. I have z and z ultra. I install app manually to z. I see only first page.
    Yesterday z ultra receive update. Install it but same problem.

  • lorikarte Turkiye

    Same for me on z and z ultra.

  • Khillo81

    Same for me. I received notification via Update Center but without description or screenshots. Installed it and got stuck on the first screen. Uninstalled and reinstalled several times, same problem. I’m on a Z1 with Android 4.4.4. As I can see from the comments, it’s not platform dependent, so is it firmware dependent? Or is the software working normally but there’s something we’re missing?

  • Imi

    I have a z2 and is the same issue like for everyone. Works, made 3 video but that’s it! I can’t edit just delete pictures. I can’t make new short film, using pictures. I reinstalled and it’s makes the same 3 film as before using the same pictures….
    This would be a really good app but now is just annoying.
    It’s ment to be like this or you guys, there in sony trying to make it better?
    Answer anyone?

    Any documentation on this thing anywhere? Or somewhere I can go to for support? I have several xperia devices with this on it and it hasn’t worked since the release. It just worked yesterday and I was disappointed because it wouldn’t let me select photos/videos/music on my SD card.

    It makes me wonder if this thing only works with media on the internal memory which really sucks because the xperia devices don’t exactly come with a lot of memory. That and they don’t let you move apps to the SD card. This means that your internal memory is pretty precious and you can’t just use it for media like this.

    i absolutely hate this application because i can’t delete it and it makes these mixed slideshows i don’t use my phone for family pictures of us selfies offer activities i just photograph products and other work files and so i get a mix up of me in the shower with a couple of pdf scans and a picture of the dog in the garden mixed with 3 product photos and it doesn’t make sense i use my phone for working i’m not one of those selfie makers and not everybody uses phones for keeping galleries of the family pictures i definitely don’t. it’s absolutely useless and it makes video files filling up my memory and i don’t want it to i don’t want this app but i cannot delete it on my sony xperia i find the sony xperia one of the worst smartphones i’ve ever had. i normally use iphone ipad and macbook with imac but i wanted to give android a go and so i bought a sony xperia z2 but i’m completely frustrated with it it takes 5 seconds for the keyboard to pop up when i tap on a text field and it takes 12 seconds for an edited photograph to close in photoshop

    Mine created a video with completely random pictures from different days, had nothing to do with each other!! Coupled with nice romantic music. Hilarious, but otherwise useless.

  • Thanks!

  • Strappster

    Please provide a facility to completely uninstall this software. It’s pointless and vapid, takes up memory and processing time on my phone that could be used to improve other things, such as the amount of time it takes to get anything worthwhile done. I’m sure there’s valid marketing statistics to back up the need for ephemera such as this but frankly you can stick it up your arse.
