Introducing Glimpses 2.0 (formerly known as Briefly)

Your Moments. Your Photos. Your Story.

Still Motion videos typically show photos for not much longer than the fraction of a second and are a fun and novel way to share your stories.

Glimpses is designed to let you create these videos with just a few clicks.

For the best results, the app now analyses your photos for faces and places the photos in the video accordingly, resulting in much nicer and more personal results. It supports resolutions of up to 4K, going beyond 1080p.

Version 2.0 also focuses on making it easier for you to create the perfect soundtrack for your video.
You can add as many songs as you like, and select only the parts of the songs you like best.
If a soundtrack is too long, it will automatically fade out at the end of the video. If it is too short, it can be looped, or more songs can be added.

Glimpses is available exclusively on the Mac App Store for the introductory price of $9.99 for a limited time at about 60% off. It is a free upgrade for existing customers of the app formerly known as Briefly.
A free, 15-day trial is available at the website.

For more details, I wrote a blog post about the app on my blog at blog.eternalstorms.at

Hi!

Today, I released Glimpses v2.1!


Among other improvements, refinements and bugfixes, Glimpses 2.1 improves its integration with macOS (a QuickLook Plugin lets you identify Glimpses projects more easily and quickly) and Photos.app (Glimpses accepts drag'n'drop from Photos.app, and offers a Share extension so photos can be imported to Glimpses right from within Photos.app).
It offers a new "Shuffle Photos" option - for that extra random touch in your videos - and increases performance in a few parts of the app.

Here's a blog post with more detail on what's new in Glimpses:

A free, 15-day trial can be downloaded from the website (including those of you who already tried the app) :

A free update for existing customers, the app can be bought on the Mac App Store:

Thank you and enjoy :),

Hey.

I'd like to inform you that Glimpses 2.2 now supports the new MacBook Pro's Touch Bar.

Using Touch Bar, you can import photos from flickr or Instagram, sort and filter photos in your project and adjust your project's settings, all without leaving the keyboard.
