Finally, the most awaited video feature for iPhone 11 has arrived! Multiple camera video recording – the idea that left many iPhone users flabbergasted at the Apple event – is here, courtesy, of course, of FiLMiC.
If you ran to open your FiLMiC Pro app and check it out, stop. It’s not there. Nope, the company didn’t add it to their main app, but created a separate app that helps you create videos. The new app is called DoubleTake and the best thing about it is that it’s free! No shenanigans here.
It’s also incredibly easy to use, if you’re willing to install another app on your already crowded phone. Once you’re in the app itself, you simply have to select the cameras you want to get footage with and the frame rate -24,25 or 30fps. Set the focus and let it do its thing!
While you’re recording, you can see the footage being shot in split-screen or picture-in-picture. It’s up to you, entirely.
The recording tops at 1080p due to some internal limitations of the app, so don’t fret, this is how it’s supposed to happen. The resulting files come in the h.264 format which you can then export and save into your Camera Roll. From there, you can do all the edits you want, just as you’ve done until now.
Another word of caution: if you own an iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max, you can use all three cameras at your disposal, wide, ultra-wide and front-facing one. But if you’re an iPhone XS, XS Max or XR, you have to limit yourself at just one rear camera per shoot, plus the selfie cam, of course.
But hey, you can always upgrade to the next iPhone right! I mean, isn’t that the whole objective?!
