I love this app; I use almost all the time, and it is my go-to app for chroma-keying green screens videos. However, about a month ago, I’ve recently experienced an issue out of nowhere where when I try to upload a video from my gallery, it shows videos jumbled out of order instead of most recent, and when I click on the video I am looking for, it actually is not that video. In fact, it is a different video from my gallery and it makes it frustrating to find the video I am looking for because the thumbnail and timestamp shows up as a different video than what it actually is after choosing it on the video timeline. I tried deleting the app and redownloading it, but the issue still persists. I don’t know if anyone else is experiencing this issue, but if we can get an fix for this bug as soon as possible, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
First I’m writing this comment as a complain I only rated this 4 stars because it would be the best app in the world only if it did not have the bugs. Second my iPad is fully updated and so is the app. Third is the real stuff...One day I used it for a movie I’m making and out of the blue it just kicked me out! I thought “okay...weird..” I thought so I came back in. It took a long time to load but was still okay. I went on it for at least 5 mins and it kicked me out again!! Annoyed I went back in...it did the same thing over and over again! I still used it every day.. but it keeps kicking me out and taking long to load. And every day I check for a update- a bug update. After weeks of ‘suffering’ I saw the update!! I pushed update and waited for it to load (As before my iPad is fully updated so it went fast.) I finally loaded I went in super fast the fastest I had ever tapped before! I used it for 10 mins....it kicked me out....I went back in...it didn’t even load before it kicked me out...it did change but the only change was just worse. I looked back at the App Store and saw the only ‘fix’ was just you could add text...very mad and you should do the bug fix...:(
I cannot say enough about this app. The quality is superb. The keys are cleaner than what I get running Adobe Premiere Elements on my Mac. The ease of use could not be more easy and convenient - nearly intuitive. I did have a problem with not being able to export video I created on the timeline and contacted technical support. Melinda promptly replied via email and asked several questions to help ascertain the source of the issue. She expressed total commitment to their team’s willingness to get to the root of the problem. She maintained daily contact over the course of a full week they tried to duplicate the problem which showed up as Error 8, even going out and buying the same model phone I own with the identical configuration and service provider, which astounded me that they would do that considering the app cost $3!!!!!! Finally, today, after trying out one final suggestion we were able to determine the problem only occurred when I had Bluetooth turned on in conjunction with the app I use fir my bluetooth hearing aids. Kudos and thanks to Melinda and her team fot their outstanding help and for such a great app
I purchased this app for editing videos, that way, for instance, I could make a space show and not have to build any permanent sets. However, whilst testing it out, I found that you could not export a video. Like you cannot under any circumstances. Too if you are serious about doing a green screen, this app has some trouble filtering out the green tint around the edges. With very, very careful editing you can almost get rid of it, but it isn't likely you'll get a completely clear, unblemished video. I give this 3 stars as an app to jokingly prank your friends that you traveled somewhere or just as a little fun project, but I would say it is completely unusable for serious pursuits.
I stumbled upon this by chance because I needed a decent chroma key app for on-the-go video art. This app is a DREAM. I am giving 5 stars because this app needs love and it’s the only one in the App Store that does what it does so well. It does have some places it can improve but, you know, later version or something. I’m patient. What’s to love: HD export! Perfect. Work area is touch friendly. Three layers for video/images. Projects can be saved and loaded later. Chroma Key can be adjusted to any color/sensitivity. Interface is simple enough to use. Final result looks fantastic! (This depends on your source footage, of course) Fast! Relatively stable. What could use work: More adjustments for chroma key - edge blur maybe? Keyframes! I love how I can positing things in the editing window via touch. It would be even cooler if those things could change positions over the course of the video. With three layers, you could do a great parallax effect. A couple more editing buttons? Or at least a “split clip” option - “trim” only goes one way. Support for aspect ratios other than 16:9 On the whole, this is my favorite chroma key app on this platform. Definitely worth a try.
I have one too many problems. Basically, your app decides to crash, A LOT, but sometimes it’s worse than others. Best crash, keeps progress, doesn’t crash again. Bad crash, deletes half of your progress. WORST CRASH, IT DOESN’T EVEN LET YOU INTO YOUR OWN PROJECT. EVER. IT’S COMPLETELY GONE, AND YOU CAN’T BRING IT BACK, BECAUSE THERE’S NO WAY AROUND IT, AND ALL YOUR HARD WORK IS GONE. This happened to me numerous times, and it’s just getting out of hand. Fix your app. I swear, this is the worst. Just worked on a 12 second video for about an hour, and this is what you give me. Nuh uh, you ruined my experience, and I don’t care if I’m being harsh, you need to work on it if it’s meant for 3 minute green screen videos. I wasn’t even using that much, usually I use like 40 videos, but I put in like 14, and you decide to lock me out then? Imagine you worked all your energy and soul into your project, and it locks you out for no reason at all. Explain. FIX. IT. NOW. ALSO UNLOCK MY PROJECT SO I CAN FINALLY SAVE IT.
I use this app in my middle school classroom. We use it for our school news and our video production module, so it’s being used almost daily. Recently, in the last two months, we are having to reset the app more and more frequently. We film our news in segments. We film a segment with two students, then they switch out. In the past couple of months, once we film one segment and then step out of the video room to get our next group, set up the script and get ready to film, the app has gone dark. It almost looks like the lights in the room are off, but they are not. We have to completely close the app and start over. Any suggestions?
I used this app for editing and even some animation (moving a green screen model every few nanoseconds to create motion) but the new update has made that a lot harder, the new interface is much harder to use and the precise trimming of the previous versions is gone meaning the animation is a lot choppier and harder to use. This app is a lot less convenient now and while the snipping feature is a nice addition. Its still an overall bad update to the interface and some previously usable tools. (I’ve also noticed that sometimes png images have a white background in the new update while they didn't before, this is a huge inconvenience). The app is still pretty cool for what it was, but the new update really makes it a pain to use.
To be honest this was not a good app, it has a lot of annoying glitches ( like braking down) and stupid setup errors like not being able to delete a project... also the quality of the images is absolutely TERRIBLE, seriously I film stuff in HD yet end up with literally 240p ( that’s if I’m lucky). And you only get like 3 or 4 tools to work with. But all in all, it does the job. If I were you I would only get this if it’s free, if you’re only doing simple things and don’t care about the quality, or if you’re desperate. If not don’t bother getting this app, you’ll only get frustrated.
But where the splitting tool? I can’t split clips. It would be cool if I could move a item around the screen using this app. Animation would be well worth. It’s gonna take a while to trim each clip instead of the typical split. I actually don’t know if I can do it but there’s no way to know otherwise because I can’t export clips with truly transparent backgrounds. They just turn up as black instead of tranparent. If I knew how to do this assuming it’s possible then this would be the easiest 5 star of my life. Because then in other apps I could manage moving objects around the screen that are already composited I guess.
I am updating my review from 2 to 4 stars. It took a day but I was able to download on my iPad with no extra cost. After doing my own research and watching a video session from an online conference I was able to create some pictures. I just wish they offered more helpful tutorials on the app. Original review-It is not super user friendly. The tutorial helps only slightly. It is very difficult to use on the iPhone. I thought I could redownload it onto my iPad. Nope. I would have to pay to get it on my iPad. Waste of money, and extremely frustrating.
I teach Art K-5. Currently, my 5th graders are using this app for their project on futurism. They take several photos of themselves in front of the green screen and layer them into a background they have created with colored pencil and then altered with various photo editing apps. Gorgeous. The only thing we all forget to do before we save is to switch from video to image, but that’s a user problem—not you! The students find it very easy to use and combine with other apps. Thank you for a great teaching tool that still works on my dinosaur iPads!
This app is absolutely phenomenal. I am a LEGO stop motion movie animator, and I find this app to be very useful when shooting a film. The only reason I am giving this app four stars is because I really wish that there was a blue screen option. Granted, the app is called green screen, it would be nice to have blue screen, because sometimes I shoot minifigures and vehicles with green elements in them up against the green screen, which then messes with the final shot. If you could insert a blue screen option, that would be fantastic, but if you cannot, I totally understand. Keep up the great work!
I use the app in a workshop for youth and found that it's not only the most intuitive app for kids and adults alike, it's also the most sophisticated for experiential production work and it's the first I've discovered that lets you load prerecorded videos into its 3 track editor. Phenomenal! BTW - animation by do ink is also phenomenal! Update-the latest update has broken the app. It no longer opens on my iphone SE and the camera crashes it on 2018 iPads. Please fix! Camp is starting next week!
When I make movies with my students they want to do very imaginative and creative special effects. I am usually very limited by my consumer grade software in my classroom. However, with the green screen app- anything goes! You want to interact with your art? SURE! You want to have flying animations buzz by you? SURE. You want to turn yourself magically into a creature? No Problem. Thank you for helping my students express their creativity with your amazing app!
Problem with being able to see the person with the background still lit up and good
I like this app sometimes because sometimes everything is awesome and other times the app is weird and the picture will be fine but the back ground is to dark and will turn into the green screen and when I try to fix it then the person is see through and that won’t work that well on making it look real. Pls respond as fast as possible on a fix or if I’m doing something wrong.
Love this app! I had no problems saving to my camera roll, and exporting...don’t know where these reports are coming from. As long as you record in a well lit area (which is just good practice...) the result is amazing. I think people who are bashing this app aren’t taking the time to understand it, and think it’s a magic bullet for sloppy camera work. As with all good recording, make sure you are in a well lit area and definitely use a tripod. Sky is the limit!
Your Not “Do ink” anything about this common problem!!!
So, I logged into Green Screen. I played it. I made two videos. I’m making a third one for my friends when IT KICKED ME OUT! I was so upset, I started crying. I am also experiencing a problem where it lags like crazy. I can’t even play my videos, at least not in app! I had worked so hard on my movie. At least it saved my progress, but what is the point if you can’t watch your creation? If you don’t fix this I am deleting the app. For now, I’ll just export my movie and move to KineMaster for ALL movie making. (Hope it has a green screen thing!) I am rating this app 4 stars, because it was really great before it started to kick me out. Please fix this glitch. To anyone buying this app...it works. For like 10 minutes. To Do Ink...please fix this lag! It’s REALLY annoying. Your very sad friend, Me.
I have nothing bad to say about this app for the most part. It’s very easy to use and create with. The only improvement I wish they would make and future versions is to make it easier to scale images down and still keep the image level. I really hope the developers see this message because that is the one and only nerve-racking element of this app and the only reason I can’t give it five stars
This app has been my favorite green screen editor for years, and one day it just started crashing every couple of minutes and working extremely slowly. I have all the updates and am frustrated by this because no other green screen editor has the options and effects this one does. It’s a fantastic app apart from this. Please fix these bugs.
This is the app I’ve spent days and failed google searches for! Amazing for memeing. Can you add one thing? When editing a video (like trimming, cutting, pasting, etc.) Can you add a “split” option? So if I want to draw a green screen at a different place using the same video I wouldn’t have to go through and split it however many times myself. That would totally enhance the experience. Thanks!
I picked up this app for a quick project and am using it more and more for videos and photos. It’s so intuitive and the results look great, I especially like the ability to layer 3 images/videos/sounds! I keep showing my boyfriend “I did this on my phone!” He doesn’t care but I do it anyway. Intuitive and fast to use.
This app is awesome! Easy to use, easy to teach to kids. I use it my elementary school library as young as 3rd grade. The best part is that even though it’s easy to use, it’s very robust. The kids make incredible projects. And it simple app smash with! This app definitely plays nice in the sandbox! The drawing and animation app is also a winner ;)
I guess I am the type of person that’s doesn’t like change. Even though I liked the old version of Green Screen. The new version is awesome. It just took me some time to get use to. It’s much better than before. The clarity is amazing! They added more tools for you to put your creativity to work. It’s just perfect!
So I have been using this app for a long time and it’s been great until today. Let me explain, so the app updated and I was super excited but then I went into the app and tried to add a camera it kicked me out of the app! I tried at least 5 times AND I even deleted the app and downloaded it again. Please fix this problem because I really loved this app! 😕
This app is easy to use and is a great addition to a classroom. I'm not sure why others complain about not being able to export to Photos. It's very easy; our second graders can do it. I save finished video clips to Photos and import them into iMovie and add transitions and titles to finish up our presentations.
I really wanted this to work, as I’ve spent hours searching for an app that would allow me to easily remove the background in my videos and save as transparent. The major downfall with this app is the Chromakey feature. There is no eye dropper to allow you to easily grab the color you wish to remove. I could tap my background, but it inevitably wiped out essentially all of my image.
Even with this 2019 update (which is a great improvement) I’ve notice some serious crashing with less than a 100 frames now. Use to get more frames than that before it crashed before; so I have to start a new project (to be safe) after 50+ frames or so. Very annoying for a great product. PLEASE FIX (w/o erasing everything like that last 3 updates or so).
Like any software you have to gain experience to appreciate all it can do. I’ve used it mostly to create teaching movies for my Sunday School class. I even used it to take portraits with different locations in the background. The best thing you can do is watch the tutorial and practice.
This app is probably the best app I’ve ever downloaded EVER! I only have one con; and that is that when I layer two videos and it has audio that I have to line up accordingly, I can’t hear my first video when I do the second one! I wish there was a way to do that. Thanks.
This app is THE BEST. In 2018 I was trying to find a good editing app that I could use to make videos and sketches. I came across this app and I got it did the tutorial and I was amazed! I love using this app and with a little practice and learning you can make something really cool!
The possibilities are endless! This app allows you to green screen anything! For those of you who don't know what that means... basically your able to create video or photo stickers (gifs), size, and rotate them in your videos😯👍 I'm super excited about using this in my upcoming videos!
I learned this app at my school and thought this is so cool I need this at home. Next thing you know I have a green screen and this app! Also I love how you have 3 different slots instead of just having the green screen video and the video you want as your background
This app is perfection, there is absolutely nothing wrong. There are so many people complaining about the fact that you can't export to the camera roll, when in fact you can — pay closer attention before complaining about nothing first.
This app used to be 5 Stars but now I give it a 2 1/2-3 Stars
I used to adore this app because when filming it was the entire screen on my iPhone but there was an update & now for some reason I can’t get rid of all of the screen screen. I use the chrome key color wheel & you can still see a faint outline of The the green screen & it’s beyond frustrating
This does exactly what I want, easily. The screen can be changed from green to any color and at any level. The app does even more things that I haven’t even used yet. And I’ve had it for several years.
Granted, it is not a high-end do-everything kind of app. But I have done green screen with it and the kids and they loved it. For more serious use, I start with this then move over to a more robust app to finish. I am very pleased with it.
I love it but I was working on a project for about hours But it wouldn’t load it all And logged me out and it never worked it on wouldn’t even let me in Anna my other project I do not know what this is about but if the company who made this app could help me please
This was a very useful app that I loved, perfect for any green screen work. Only problem is that the most recent update that came out 2 days ago, cause me to not be able to download what I make to my camera role. It makes the app pointless because it’s only saving to the app, please fix this and I’ll leave a better review
When recording, the volumn of the video is not playing. I have the volumn all the way up on both the layer and my device. Is this intentional? It works when I press play but not when I record. I would love some advice?
First off, this app SHOULD NOT be paid for even without the bugs and glitches. Second, your app deletes projects after they are left for a few minutes. You are scamming people out of there money and you should get your app working before you make people pay for it.
In a sea of green screen turds, it should be noted that this app actually works and works well! I made the mistake of downloading two other well rated apps and they were utterly horrible. Please reward a solid engineering effort and buy this app. Bravo!!!
Not only the App is fantastic, DoInk Support is superb!! Not only they answered my questions they sent me an excellent email with training links and number of useful tips. Thanks DoInk. Seriously you are a great example, and definitely you are full of best practices!
You can not do anything with your project because the 3 options that developer mentioned before, not true. I never got those 3 options, I want to save it to my camera roll and it's impossible. The app work great, but when you are going to save it is a nightmare, the app create an extension to the file that's is unique ...doing something. I will contact apple to get a refund, don't waist your money but specially your time !
This seems like a great app that I would be able to use with my kinder students, especially now during remote learning. However, as I am creating projects, the app continues to crash. I tried resetting my phone and everything. It will not load anything in my project and as soon as it starts to, it crashes.
I used this app now for about 10 months. Recently like 3-4 weeks ago it started just freezing and crashing. Sooo frustrating after spending hours on a project to just have to delete it and reload the app to have it do it all over. Considering moving on to another app for my green screen purposes. Please, please update.
Doink listen to me, do NOT change a single thing in your app it is awesome. I have one question though. How do you put your animation in the green screen app? Also lower the price it is worth it but a little pricey.
