This Free iOS App Lets You Shoot, Edit, and Share Multi-Cam Videos2 min readReading Time: 2 minutes
The Roland 4XCamera Maker app can connect four cameras at once for multi-angle video.Roland is known mostly for its keyboards and professional musical instruments, but many (including me) may not know that they also have skin in the pro video market. But it came as something of a surprise that the company was aiming for the mobile filmmaking market with 4XCamera Maker, an iOS app that allows users to not only shoot and edit videos in 4K but also sync up with up to 3 other IOS devices while doing it.
Whether shooting a feature film, short film, or music video, the old axiom is true: time is money. The longer it takes to get coverage, the more its’ going to cost you. The mobile filmmaking style is a step towards providing affordable ways to tell stories, but the next step is to provide multiple camera angles from the same video source. That’s the promise of 4K, where you can take one shot and crop in to create another, then output in 1080p.
But what if you could wirelessly import multi-cam videos to provide any additional angles you need, and then sync them all to a master device for editing. That’s what 4X Camera Maker aims to do, by giving filmmakers the ability to record from up to 3 additional devices, perfectly synced, and then transfer that footage to the master device.
- Wirelessly connect and control up to three additional iOS devices to record multi-angle videos in one take.
- Edit your video directly from the screen of your device, adding transitions, split-screen, fade in/out and trimming.
- Manage your projects directly from the app.
- Full editing functionality available via a small in-app purchase or by connecting to Roland GO:MIXER or GO:MIXER PRO.
