Nokia Details Video Director App For Lumia 2520 Tablet

Nokia Video Director

Nokia today detailed the upcoming Video Director app for Lumia 2520 tablet. Nokia announced this app back at Nokia World and this app will be available for download when Lumia 2520 goes on sale. Video Director app allows you to create stylized videos in a matter of minutes, even if you have no prior video-editing experience. As opposed to Windows Phone 8 platform, Windows 8 has the ability to encode video. You can take user videos, open them up, apply filters and change them, and then re-encode the whole thing into a new video. Jason Davis, producer for the app from Nokia said that Windows 8 platform has all of the ingredients needed to make a really solid video editing app.

Nokia Video Director uses what Jason describes as a three-step process. First, you pick the video clips and photos that you want to include. Next, you pick a Nokia “style” – these have the filter effects, transitions, and color schemes (there is even licensed music and fonts) that help set the mood of the final video. Finally, you add the intro/outro titles for your video, and hit the “Preview” button.

The app includes six different styles to start you off, including three that were created in conjunction with Hollywood-based Scatterlight Studios (Collage, Avant-garde and Vintage). Additional styles will be available for download soon.

Options for saving and exporting your video range from low resolution (suitable to email) to full 1080p HD video that can be shown on an HDTV.

The app includes support for ten different languages, and options to share your creations using the Windows Share Charm on your tablet so you can upload your video to your choice of social networks.

The app then takes your clips and merges them with the style you select to create your final video. If you don’t like the way the preview looks, you simply pick a different style. The story stays the same, so you don’t have to start from scratch.

There is also a companion app coming for Lumia Windows Phone devices which allows you to transfer photos and videos captured on your Lumia smartphone to the Nokia Lumia 2520. Read more about it from the link below.

    There is no reason they don’t make this app for WP8. The 1520 and the 2520 use the same processors. They are basically the same devices with difference size screens.

    Personally I am curious to see if this will install on Surface2.
