[prMac.com] Warsaw, Poland - Motivapps today is proud to announce the release of Flicker Be Gone 1.2, its new video app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Shooting video in slow-motion under artificial lights quite often causes uncomfortable flicker. This app will postprocess your video and remove the flicker. Flicker Be Gone processes the video by averaging the frames' brightness. This slightly lowers the quality of a video, but makes it far more pleasant to watch. There are two videos that demonstrate the effect.
"Plenty of iPhone 6 users reported a problem with super slow motion videos, an irritating flicker appearing due to artificial lights," explained Tomasz Kolinko, founder of Warsaw based Motivapps. "While the next iOS version may have appropriate filters to deal with the issue, a new app from Motivapps is probably the only tool on the market to fix this right now."
The effect happens due to fluorescent lights lighting up 50-60 times a second. Both human eyes and regular video recording equipment don't catch this, but once iPhone starts recording with 240fps, this becomes a serious issue. For years there existed desktop apps that removed the effect from professional videos, and probably within the next year such a filter will become an integral part of iOS. But currently probably the only way to deal with the issue directly on the device is to use Flicker Be Gone.
