[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - People who love taking videos with their iPhone - but aren't thrilled about the amateur production values - can now download the groundbreaking new VOOL Animated Movie Maker & Editor with Stickers: the first and only professional movie-maker app that lets users easily add a set of animated movie stickers directly into their movies.
Developed by Vliv Inc., a dynamic mobile video startup founded by three ex-Yahoo!s, VOOL contains all of the tools users need to create flawless iPhone videos, and then share them with friends, followers, fans, or the entire web via Facebook, Twitter, Wechat, Whatsapp or Line.
Notably, users don't need any technical, editing or designing background, experience or know-how to create a video masterpiece. They simply launch VOOL and start recording a movie using their iPhone's camera function. Next, they rearrange multiple clips in whatever order they wish by tapping them. From there, they access the app's built-in editor tools to add a variety of features and effects, including:
* Animated character stickers - called "Voolies" - which can be added at any point in the video and set to move, pose and dance (the app offers over 7 sets of animated characters stickers, each with multiple poses, and a variety of prop stickers)
* Voiceovers for sound effects, commentary or both
* Customized text and titles and overlay drawings or graffiti onto the video
* Customized music or sounds
* Select a custom video cover thumbnail
Users also have the option to:
* Make videos into 1x2 or 2x2 tiles
* Create stories by inviting friends to "Vool it" - i.e. join them in making ongoing video strings
* Upload their video to the VOOL community to share it with a growing audience of friendly and supportive movie aficionados
* Track video views and the status of their uploaded video
* Compete in video gigs and possibly win swag and rewards

"With refreshing ease and simplicity, users can add professional quality animation and characters to their iPhone videos, co-create unique masterpieces with their friends, enter contests, and more. In essence, VOOL takes each user's creativity and helps them put it on video for the world to enjoy!"
