2. WHAT IS THE GROUPCLIP APP?
The GroupClip App is a mobile app that offers Users an easy and fun way for creating synchronized multi-frame videos together with their friends. The GroupClip App lifts social video storytelling to the next level helping Users to create more intriguing, likeable and shareable video content.
Creating (synchronized) multi-frame videos used to be time consuming and required using complicated software. Now, with the GroupClip App, Users can create multi-frame video content in just minutes from the palm of their hand.
With the GroupClip App Users can invite friends or discover other GroupClip App Users nearby and co-record videos together. Within moments, the GroupClip App mashes the co-created videos together as one multi-frame video clip available for all contributors.
The multiple-frame videos clip can easily be edited by (de-)activating individual clips on the timeline. The result is an amazing looking synchronized video clip that automatically switches between the different multi-frame formats. In addition Users can add videos, photos, music and audio. The GroupClip App can also be used in single mode, using just one camera to create non-synchronized multi-frame videos.
