How about some thought?
I've never before purchased something so clearly thrown together from the App Store. I'd hoped to expand my Photo Booth experience, which I often use in creation of art. So for two bucks, I figured I couldn't go wrong. And it's true, despite the fact that this was a total waste. It's only two bucks.But a little thought would have gone a long way. Many of the effects require moving the mouse over the image to change or control it. Fine. But then you must use the mouse to click on the Camera button... which obviates your choices in the image. Duh? The screen refresh rate on my 2010 Mac Book Pro varied from total freeze that I thought would require a forced quit to about 2x per second, nothing like the life view in Photo Booth. In addition, it did something that brought the MBP to a complete crawl, requiring that I force-quit both this dog and the App Store before I got back to normal. The images are hideously low in resolution and contrast, making them completely useless for my purposes. That isn't a condemnation of the program; nowhere does it guarantee to be good for me. But I could have made an informed choice if the developer's website weren't a lousy, useless page advising you to "enjoy the program." In short, don't waste your time or money hoping for good quality images, a sensible interface, or a whole lot of creativity here. Had it been more than $2 I might be seeking a refund. I might anyway.
Creates cool photos but needs to be more user friendly!
The photo effects on this are pretty unique compared to other webcam apps, but it definitely needs some software updates. First off, You can only take a photo by clicking the camera button, yet for some of the effects you need to move the mouse around to get the look you want. You should be able to hit Enter to take a photo. Second, the photos cannot be dragged and dropped into a folder, you have to save each file individually. You must also delete photos individually. We should be able to select multiple photos with the Command/Splat+Click function.In a nut shell, it's very fun but it's time consuming to sort through the images later on, so if you take lots of photos be careful!
I really like this app, and Am using it for video feedback effects. Please make a full screen option and It will be even better
change auto flip!
is there anyway to change the camera from automatically flipping photos? i love the app, but i wish it was an option like photobooth. please change that!
Fun, Fun, Fun!
***Update 1.0.1*** Thanks for the fix, but I'm still waiting for more effects! Also, if you could change the effect selector to be more like Photo Booth's, instead of clicking arrows, that would be great!This is a great app, with LOTS of interactive effects! But why did I give it three stars? Not because of the Lion Snapshot Bug. Because we need more effects! Most of the effects here are unique though. Motion FX has over 80 effects, last time I checked… Bring the count up to 50 or something and I'll change my review to 5 stars! Thanks!
