Prisma adds new feature; videos can now be turned into moving paintings

Popular photo-editing app Prisma, which turns photos into pieces of art, will now help you convert video clips into animations. Prisma will be offering video support for 15-second clips on iOS with its latest update, reports TechCrunch.

The bad news? Only the iOS version of the app supports videos for now, but the team is working on bringing the feature (along with offline processing) to Android.

If you’ve ever used the app, you know that it can take some time to pass images through its filters, so you may be wondering how much longer videos take. It all depends on your device: it will take iPhone 7 up to 30 seconds, iPhone 6s a full minute and iPhone 6 two minutes to reveal your 15-second masterpiece.

All processing is done locally on the device so expect your iPhone hardware to heat up a little as you play around with remixing videos as mosaics or Munches or manga-style cartoons.

At the moment, videos only work with nine filters, but the developers plan to add more until all their filters can be applied to both photos and videos. While the app sounds more useful now, this still isn’t Prisma’s final form: the company promises to add support for GIFs “very soon,” so you can give those reaction GIFs the artistic touch they deserve.
