Video Tuner brings Instagram-style editing to Lumia (Wired UK)


Nokia, or Microsoft Devices, or whatever it is calling itself these days
is today launching its own video editing tool, designed to make it
simple and easy to cut, paste and add filters to your footage,
before you share it directly with friends.

The app, which is simply named Video Tuner and is much like
iMovie for Windows Phone, will be available free to all Lumia
owners with devices running Windows Phone 8.1. With a simple interface, users can drag
their video snippets onto a timeline and make use of several
editing features. As well as giving users the ability to apply
Instagram-esque filters, Video Tuner allows manual editing control
in the same way as many camera apps do, but it also allows users to
apply video-specific effects, such as slow motion.

From the demo we’ve seen, it looks as though it’s pretty easy to
get impressive results that don’t look at all amateurish — but
that impression was gleaned from a professionally made video. We’ll
be sure to test the app in full as part of our review of Nokia’s
new flagship phone, the Lumia 930, which goes on sale next week.


Video Tuner supports MP4 video files recorded on the same
Windows Phone device as the app is installed on and, perhaps
obviously, also saves your finished videos in MP4 format. Users can
add non-DRM protected MP3 audio tracks into their videos, but these
will have to be stored directly on the phone — they cannot be
borrowed from MixRadio or any other music-streaming source.

Videos can be shared directly from within the app on platforms
supported by Windows Phone’s native sharing tools. This means that
while videos can be saved in Vine or Instagram video format, they
cannot be shared on these networks from within the app itself.
Nokia is hoping that sharing directly to these networks will be
enabled on Windows Phone soon.

Quite rightly, Nokia points out that many users often use their
phones to record video but don’t end up doing anything with it –
Video Tuner was designed to solve this problem and make your
footage worthy of sharing online. While we can’t pinpoint a
specific moment that the app will appear in the Windows Phone
Store, we can say it will be available almost immediately, so get
