That's where you are missing the point Tony. It's always been about still frames. The higher the quality of each still frame, and the more we can capture per second at the user-preferred shutter speed, the better the 4K video will be. As mentioned above, we are achieving 30fps on the new iPad Air 2 in our internal testing and the iOS 8.1 update live in the store today allows users to manually set a slower shutter speed.
Justin. Please post a link to the two comparison full resolution still frames that show that the MX is "just plain better". When you are already opposed, just saying the MX is better without pointing out the details means nothing. I am more than ready to have this debate with you and look at both 3840x2160 still frames.
Keep in mind the Vizzywig 4K shots were done on an iPhone 5S in iOS 7 with high shutter speed. iOS 8.1 allows us to manually set shutter speed to 1/48th and internally, we are achieving 30 frames per second on the new iPad Air 2 which has an 8MP camera. Don't waste time on issues we have already resolved.
If you can pull a frame from any of the Red One MX R3D files that you truly believe "is just plain better" than the corresponding frame from Vizzywig 4K, email them to me or post a link to both frames and specifically point out what you are talking about.
The original version of Vizzywig has grossed over $750,000 and is still selling strong among the top grossing photo apps in many countries worldwide at a price point of $29.99. We put the app on sale from time to time to build our install base and drive awareness but if you look at the pricing history, you can see that we stick to our high price point. A large majority of those sales are due to our revolutionary remote control and live switching features.
I don't spend time on here because you are my target market Tony. I have a responsibility to defend our app against slanderous, malicious and false comments.
I have been positive and helpful, answering questions and providing raw test files. The people that have nothing better to do than rudely criticize and distort the facts are the ones making bad name for themselves.
I have give Tony every opportunity to prove his point of view offering so far as to travel to his city and spend a day testing Vizzywig 8xHD against ANY 4K camera of his choice rented at my cost and we both post our respective files for the community here to review.
It's easy to yell out insults from the cheap seats up high in the stadium when others are actually out on the field, in the mud, working hard, making mistakes but getting up and actually playing on the field.
Tony either needs to get out on the field with me and put all his theories to the test or shut the hell up. I know exactly how I come across on this forum and I'm okay with that. I realize the risks I am taking talking so honestly and openly.
People know how hard it is to build and launch an innovative app, let alone how hard it is to get anyone to talk about it. You can second guess my methods, and maybe I am making mistakes along the way but at least I am on the field in the game, not sitting in the stands booing the coach or the players who have enough courage to get in the game.
How is the view from the cheap seats Tony?
The point here is repurposing. If you use shallow depth of field and slow shutter speed, it's baked in forever and you limit yourself to what can be done with the still frames. If you would read, you'll see that Vizzywig 8xHD in iOS 8.1 gives users the option to use 1/48th shutter speed or any shutter speed for that matter. I only suggested adding motion blur in post if you want to use a high shutter speed so that each frame can be used for still photos.
Have you released any Apps Tony? Can you post a link to your best film?
