Yesterday, Google announced three of the photography apps to improve the mobile photography experiences. Researchers at Google built a Motion Stills that lets you convert short videos into cinemagraphs and time lapses using experimental stabilization and rendering technologies. As part of the project, the appsperiments replicate the approach building on the technologies available in Google. It relies on the object recognition, person recognition, person segmentation, stylization algorithms, efficient image encoding and decoding technologies. Google launched three apps which it calls Appsperiments comprising Storyboard, Selfissimo! and Scrubbies.
Storyboard is available on the Android platforms only which lets you transform your videos into single-page comic layouts. It automatically detects and select the interesting video frames, lays them out and applies one of the six visual styles. According to Google, There are approximately 1.6 trillion different possibilities.
Selfissimo! is available both on iOS and Android which automates the selfie photographer and snaps a stylish black and white photo each time you pose. You can tap on the screen to start a photoshoot. It detects your motion and captures a photo whenever you stop moving. You can also review the resulting contact shet, and save the individual images or the entire shoot.
Scrbubbies is available in the iOS and it lets you manipulate the speed and direction of the video playback to produce the video loops that highlights action, capturing funny faces, and replay moments. You can shoot video in the app and then remix it by Scrubbing with one finger that plays the video. Scrubbing two finger captures the playback to save or share it.
