App Description

Luminancer captures videos and still images with effects such as rainbow strobes, vortex tunnels, spirals, glitch, halos, rays, contrast, color, solar, low light settings and more.

Luminancer is an instrument for radical expression.

Photo Option: Create still images in numerous combination of effects. Every image an abstract piece of art, album cover, or mood enhancer. Post to Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook or save to your Photo Library.

Video Option: Real time video effects with audio. It is the language of the future. Poems in the form of video seek to bend light in their expression, yet the simple filters and generic warping of most apps are inadequate. Post your masterpieces, music concert videos and veejay projection reels to YouTube. Be a visual performance artist with your iOS device.

How it works: By overloading the luminance channel with strobing colors and video feedback, Luminancer defines itself as an instrument of abstract video.

Video doesn't have to be a literal replaying of material events it can also capture the interaction of motion and light. Luminancer gets it's visual effect from the cycle of luminance overload and feedback loops. Combining tropes from an earlier era of experimental video art with the power of modern digital technology Luminancer makes it possible for iOS videographers to create and share cyberpsychedelic events the moment they happen.
