It's hard not to be mesmerized by cinemagraphs - high quality images that seem static but have subtle motion effects. The process to make them through Photoshop/After Effects is pretty tedious, so it's only natural that a tool would be made to simplify the workflow. Cinemagraph Pro is that tool. And it's super cool. Check out the examples here: https://flixel.com/cinemagraphs/

@alirtariq Definitely mesmerizing EDIT: the reviews on the app aren't good, as it apparently costs $20 to export

@alirtariq @JeremyZ123 Our App is a free download to view cinemagraphs and also to test out the creation tool but yes in order to export or post you must pay a one time fee to unlock it. The price is actually now $50 for iOS and $200 for Mac App. Our App is targeted for creative professionals and with our software you can create compelling marketing content. We are a creative software tools company with 10 employees and our monetization comes from selling our software. I never understood why people would give a negative review on the App Store because they have to pay for a product. I understand that Google has given most of their products for free and it set the tone but that's only doable because they sell your information to marketers and have the engine to make this business model viable. Personally I prefer not to be sold to anyone and pay for my products.

Curious how you guys differentiate from Cinemagram - especially since that app is totally free. https://cinemagr.am/

@tmyknze Cinemagr.am is trying to do a social network play like Instagram (that's why it's free and they raised 8.5 million to support this vision). We initially started out with this same strategy when we launched over 3 years ago and raised early seed funding with this vision. However, after looking at customer behaviour patterns on our App and Cinemagr.am after the first year, it became clear to us that Cinemagraphs is more akin to a mini art project and best suited to professional creatives (similar profile to Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers). Essentially you will use Cinemagraphs as either an art piece or for marketing purposes, not so much to document and share most things you do with the world like Instagram users do. If you don't use the App on a daily basis it makes it difficult for building a business around a Social Network that is Ad supported. For this reason we decided to work another year in redesigning and coding our App from scratch for a pro iOS experience and also focus heavily on a new Pro Mac App (it was awarded best of 2014 Mac Apps by Apple and the Apple Design Award in 2014). What differentiates us from Cinemagr.am is an ease of use on the creation side (real time live masking preview) and also a professional output and delivery (4K support for render and high quality display on the web and our mobile App). The ease of use is what differentiates us from Adobe as well along with our delivery and hosting solution for the web. Although it's very compatible with Creative Cloud users as we leverage Adobe's SDK https://blog.creativesdk.com/201... Hope this helps to answer your question, but ultimately I would invite anybody to test both out and decide which is best for their individual workflow and intended usage.
