I just paid for the app.....I thought was $14.99 then inside the app it said I had to pay for a full version which I already did. Can anyone fix this? I was charged twice a total of $32
I pay when I download , after 2 days I decided to start my proyecto and it says that there is not purchase history and I have to pay again, but my bank account says that this app charge me all ready, what I can do
This is an absolutely amazing app if you unlock and pay for the extras, but let me say that this has some huge flaws. I just got done recording a project and not a single file saved audio alongside it. I need something reliable when I’m shooting and now I will NEVER use this again. That is a crucial mistake on their end and I’ll never get that moment back. I wasted several hours of shooting and will probably lose the client because of this. And before you say did you check the settings... I have a checklist I go over every time because there are errors bound to happen in mobile video, but something as basic as not recording audio? This app could potentially cost me an exponential amount compared to what I paid... DONT BUY IF YOU NEED RELIABILITY. It also just stops recording 4K and I have the iPhone XS Max so if you have dont have that one, DEFINITELY DONT BUY OR DOWNLOAD
• I purchased the app about 6 years ago and paid $5 for it. • when I tried to update the app I’m getting charged $14.99. 🛑You would think that the people who were supporting from the early stages would get a free upgrade.
This app is fine in itself. If you’re planning on using with a DJI Osmo Mobile 2, there are several buttons on the Osmo that don’t interface correctly. The zoom and shutter buttons in particular are useless with this app. VERY AGGRAVATING!
This app stopped recording within 2 seconds of pushing the record button. I couldn't get it to start again and keep recording for any significant length of time. I expected this to work a lot better on an XS Max. Your app really only has one job and it failed miserably.
Love this app. I don’t really know very much about filmmaking, but there are so many tutorials on YouTube that have been helpful. I find this app very easy to use and a very powerful software.
Strangely, the editing feature and toolbar that should come up on recorded videos is not to be found. My friends with the app on older phones seemed bewildered to find that my version simply didn’t bring up the same menu they have on recordings - I can only watch them. I’ll definitely refine my review once this issue is resolved.
So if you record video using the regular built in camera app - stereo sound recording. If you use Filmic Pro - you have the options of “bottom”, “front”, and “back”, or Bluetooth microphone, but those don’t exist, so back to the phone mic options.. Testing all 3 options in this app - none record stereo sound. It appears Apple use a combination of the built in mics for stereo sound recording. This is a great video recording app, but why is this app missing stereo sound recording support for the latest iPhones???
I recently bought the application for $14.99. And as I’m going through the options on the app I came across a screen that will not allow me to set temperature or additional color filters. It’s telling me I need to buy an additional app called cinematographer kit for an additional 14.99. Is this correct??? I just bought an app thinking it has all the bells and whistles and I’m getting a shakedown for an additional 15 bucks! Please explain is this is the case I would like a refund.
Films upside down when in lock horizontally mode. Just about every startup ends with a ridiculous twist and shake action to re- correct the orientation.
Can u show us which mobiles is compatible for the Log2 mode, including iso and andro ? Cheers!
Only thing that’d make this app better would be compatibility with the new DJI Osmo Pocket and better compatibility with the Røde SC6-L Interview Kit.
This app has amazing functionality and the manual settings for focus and aperture are awesome once you figure it all out. It does take some practice. I would love integration for the Kaiser Bass XS3 gimbal. This would make Filmic Pro my absolute primary app for shooting video.
Just bought this as it came highly recommended. Nice functionality in controls. Continually crashes on playing back of videos, and many times doesn’t capture audio. It has also completely rendered my iPhone frozen after crashing on playback, twice now. Please fix how horribly unstable this app is and I would rate it highly. It’s not a cheap product, with such huge bugs.
Does not move past 1st screen re camera,photo request,why,thanx,function v useless,why,does it happen often,on iPhone 8+,ipadPro 10,5 as well,why,thanx,please respond,thanx,Michael
This app is very good! It gets the job done and has lots of customisation. Really impressed with this app. 10/10
Knew about Filmic Pro 2 years ago but finally purchased it as I’ve watch reviews of it over the years and just got the iPhone X’s max. While trying to dial all the settings the colour profile is locked and require an additional $14.99. Seriously? It’s like one of the most expensive app already but gotta pay twice for what you would’ve expected to have it included in the first place. Wish I can get a refund.
It seems to be one of the great filming app. Although There is a bug when using stabilisation. When the stabilisation is turned on, the screen goes all green. It may not happen to everyone but it’s happening with my new iPhone Xs. When I delete and reinstall the app, it looks fine for mins and then same green screen covers the whole screen.
FilmicPro is THE go-to app for any serious iOS videographer. IMPORTANT: if migrating from previous iOS device to the iPhone XS or XMax, you should delete the FilmicPro app and re-download and install, so that it goes through the installation process and sets up for the new hardware correctly. Simply migrating to the new phone means that this vital step is bypassed and you have the old device’s setup copied to the new hardware, which will cause a crash. FilmicPro, also doesn’t seem to trigger the App Store update feature at the moment, so you are advised to manually go to the App Store and look up FilmicPro, which will the offer the Update (assuming you have already bought it, of course). FilmicPro converts your iOS device to be on par with high end video cameras - feature wise. If you have a top spec iOS device like an iPhone 8 or X then you will have a truly amazingly capable camera in your pocket, with full manual control and colour scopes and automated focus pull. Really quite amazing. Adding Filmic Remote adds even more features. I won’t repeat everything that is already on the web, but encourage you to look at the YouTube videos. I am sure that this product will not disappoint, and I highly recommend it. Would like to give it 6 Stars!
Love this app! Just started using it. I would love for their team to invest in ways to use focus and zoom at the same time either by a software update or a hardware product release as an add on accessory. This would definitely help me arrive to my polished shots better. Other than that, the effort is great and the app is a must have for camera phone users.
The following features in the upcoming update will be very appreciated: 1. Recording with Stereo Dynamic Range on iPhone XS & XS Max, like the in iOS 12 stock Camera app 2. Customer Aspect ratio in order to ensure comparability with iPhone XS & XS Max screen aspect ratio 3. Save video to iCloud Files app 4. Change Zoom In/Out slider approach. The actual one is not quite responsive like the one implemented in iOS 12 stock Camera app. Previous approach for Zoom In/Out was way better
Unbelievably unstable for what it’s supposed to be. Unreliable and def will mess you up if you’re thinking you can rely on it for important shoots. Garbage
You will get random IPhone camera features with this app, if you want to get extra features you have to pay more.
This an amazing app. I shot all my YouTube video with this app and the results are amazing.
Just bought the in-app upgrade (after updating to 6.8.1, Build 1010) and the app keeps crashing when I tap the gamma button- can’t even film now & simple color adjust. Help!!
Let me just say that Filmic Pro is a great camera app with many powerful features. Undoubtedly the best in the store, but after using it for a while on different projects there are some issues which hold it back: The manual ISO and shutter speed controls are nice looking but clunky to use. There’s also no ISO or shutter speed priority mode. When you lock ISO or shutter speed it locks both. You should be able to lock the shutter speed and let the app adjust the ISO automatically. Other camera apps can do this. The ISO and shutter speed values are hidden from the main interface. It’s baffling how this was overlooked. They should be right there next to the color temp. It doesn’t save your white balance, shutter or ISO settings after you close the app so you have to constantly set these over and over again. Really annoying. The fancy live analytics modes are limited to 30fps and below if you shoot in 4K. Doesn’t work with 4K 60fps. No 2:1/18:9 aspect ratio option. 17:9 shouldn’t even be in there. A custom option would be ideal. I really want to love Filmic Pro but in its current incarnation it’s often a pain to use, missing some basic features and drains your battery like crazy. The $9.99 upcharge for the flat and log profiles is also lame, especially when you can’t even use them with 60fps. A shame because there really is no alternative (yet) that offers so much potential.
The Filmic pro in-app stabilization needs to be improved, definitely noticeable even with stabilization turned on when you compare it with the default iPhone camera app.
Five stars if had an exposure +/- EV control similar DSLR. I see need for an over or under exposure control. For example sunsets, if lock the exposure as the sun goes down I would like automatic exposure at -7 or some other minus value for the duration. Six stars if had a photo mode. If want to take a photo have to exit to camera take the shot and come back ro the app.
Filmic Pro with Cinematographer kit App freezes for the iPhone XR American region, AND my other iPhone XR China region. I shoot 4K, filmic extreme, 24fps, with log. I have had both devices and app freeze at different times during application running. I can’t predict when it will freeze, but if I want to make it freeze I try to start and stop recording for minimum 10 seconds and eventually the app will freeze. I check both phones on iOS 12.1.2 (16C101). Had the China iPhone XR for 1 month and American region iPhone XR for 1 week. Tried uninstalling and re-downloading with no solution to the problem.
Hi, I’m Brazilian, I just did buy this app because the Channel “Megapixelers” made a really good review, about this App on YouTube.
Got it yesterday and so far it’s really great😊. Can u name a few films that been made using filmic pro? Wanna watch them for inspiration. Thanks
I love using this app but at certain times the footage will not save and I get an error message!! I took footage of the cable car journey to old town Dubrovnik and it gave me an error message later on that day!! After paying €16.99 for app I would expect it to save the videos at the very least.
Must have for anyone interested in capturing high quality video on mobile device. Packed with features incl. filming in log, AWB, 4K extreme quality, support for mics, FULL support for total hands free control using DJ Osmo, Zhiyun Smooth 4 (Amazing device!) and Moondog.
When I go into we’re my videos are stored the videos have a blank screen and don’t have any footage and I can not save them to camera roll either
A great little app which allows for manual control of almost everything on your camera! I’d like a gain control for the built in mic though! Also hoping they are going to bring out a new version which makes use of API now available for Freefly Movi’s cinema robot so that the buttons on the Movi can be assigned to controls in Filmic. Keep up the good work guys!!
Very good app not only for amateurs. Found it useful in news gathering in places were using big camera was difficult. Level of control allows for seamless application of shots in edit. Had temporary problem with app crashing on start but clean reinstall solved the issue. Great tool
Simply put, Filmic Pro turns your iPhone (in my case, 6s Plus) into a broadcast quality video camera - albeit, with only one lens! Seriously, it’s a must-have bargain.
On the AppStore you will find lots of applications for video apart from the stock camera app from Apple, but the V6 is proving to be a worthy keeper in my arsenal of apps. We are on holiday in Thailand and as is almost the begging of the rainy season I found myself playing around with FilmicPro on one rainy afternoon. I have compared some of my Panasonic GX85 video clips to the once I shot with FilmicPro and I was really surprised on how well I could mach the image! The wide shots would compare so well that I could not tell which one is which! Again I am still on my iPhone SE, so can't enjoy the benefit of Log or even just a flat picture profile, however if I want to highlight one feature that it would be the image stabilisation! Great stability with very little crop applied to the frame! Happy shooting to you all!
By far the best video recording app on iOS.
