Animate Your Images with Xperia Z1 Motiongraph Port
A few days ago, we brought you news of a port of the Sony Xperia Z1-exclusive Motionshot app to all devices running Android 4.0 and up. It’s a pretty neat app that essentially generates a still image of a short video. But it seems like Motionshot isn’t the only app the Xperia Z1 has to share with the rest of the Android world, as Motiongraph will also be joining the list.
Ported by XDA Forum Member xperiaz2 who also ported Motionshot, Motiongraph works with any Android 4.0 or newer device, irrespective of OEM or ROM. And much like Motionshot, Motiongraph is another novelty imaging app by Sony.
Motiongraph allows users to create an image, where selected parts are animated, and then the image is saved as a GIF. The procedure is simple. First, capture a 2 second video within the app. Once done, the app allows you to select areas of the video that you want to be animated with swipes and taps. A host of other settings are also available to enhance and control your image, such as camera focus, image stabilization, and adjustment of playback speed and smoothness.
If you would like to give Motiongraph a shot, visit the original thread for more details and download.
