dougg3's Review of Recostudio MulticamReviewed on 12/9/18 12:43 PM
This app is wonderful. It's a really clever idea. I'm able to use my old iPhone combined with my new iPhone to make great videos with multiple angles and microphones, all while controlling the whole thing with my iPad. I don't even use the capability for combining the videos together; it's useful enough just as a remote control for all of the cameras. The only complaint I have is that it hasn't been updated for a long time, so it doesn't support 4K video. This app should really be updated to take advantage of capabilities of newer devices. If it was kept up-to-date, it would easily be a 5 star app.

I don’t usually write reviews, but I really like this app. I would love to see a PiP (picture in picture) function added in future update. Then it would be perfect. Thanks

Let me start my saying I think this is an awesome app, I've ran my iPad Air as a camera and a switcher while controlling 3 iPhones, an iPhone 4, and iPhone 5s, and an iPhone 5c. It worked flawlessly! I only shot 2 minutes I have yet to try a longer video. But for what I tested it worked great! While recording one take you can preview your next camera and Zoom in or out to frame you shot and the included transitions are excellent as well, I went ahead and spent the extra $3 and purchased the ability to add images or overlays and that works great also, I had some logos I had designed already with transparency and they looked great. The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because I think it should include Facebook live streaming , I know they have another app for that but it's with a subscription and I hate that subscription nonsense I rather do my recording and then post to social media, I use Facebook live a lot but I cannot afford to spend a lot of money on it, as I was looking for an alternative to a MEVO camera I stumble upon this app I think is great I recommend it it is word the 5 or 8 bucks the ability to switch between 4 cameras and add graphics on the fly! All from an iPad, that's amazing! Add the ability to stream live at least as an in app purchase I would pay 20 or 30 ( don't make it a subscription) add that feature and you would have a lot of more people buying the app and more reviews with 5 starts :-) thanks for a great app

I’ve been using MultiCam for a couple of years now to make tutorial based YouTube videos that would be otherwise impossible without if I didn’t have this app. I’m a one man team, and with MultiCam, I’m able to be the host, trainer, performer, director and producer all at the same time. I use an iPad Pro as the switcher app, and three iPhones with the best cameras I could get, all placed on stands at different angles. I use a headset mic or laviler mic plus some room and direct mics that are recorded with some high end Macs and interfaces, so I don’t need the audio recording from MultiCam but I do use the audio for syncing. I also record the screen of some of my Macs, and need to use Digital Performer and FCPX for editing and post, so I can’t use the Combination feature of MultiCam, but it’s an excellent feature and if you need it you’ll love how much time it saves. That’s the name of the production game, right? What an inclusion. My only wish is that the developer include support for iCloud instead of Dropbox and Google Drive, but there’s a reason for that. It’s certainly not a deal killer. I can live with Dropbox. I use my iPad Pro a lot and I have a lot of A+ apps that I rely on. I’d say MultiCam is in my top 5 for innovation, quality, the time savings and incredibly just due to the fact that such an app exists. It’s hard to believe that an iOS app can sync with the camera of other iOS devices and create such a professional production. This is technology at its best. My only advice for potential users is to get the latest IPhones possible. The newer the iPhone the better the video camera obviously. An iPhone 6 is pretty good with good lighting. An iPhone 5 is about as low as I’d go but the results are still ok for some things. I can only imagine having a handful of 8s or X’s to work with! Bravo!

I work in the professional video and broadcast world. This app, for what it is (meaning iPhone software - not Jumbo Tron IMAX Ultra HD 3D) is amazing! So simple, yet beneficial for those who have a mind to put this app to work. I can't wait to see what wake I can do with this!
DigiMoll's Review of Recostudio MulticamReviewed on 12/9/18 12:43 PM
This is a brilliant app with amazing potential in multi-cam situations. Paired with the Galileo mount it could be used to create a modest television studio or remote facility at a reasonable cost. BUT: there’s no support from either REcoLive or Galileo so you’re on your own to solve problems. There’s also no documentation I can find for the rich feature set built into the app. I’d like someday to be able to give it a five star rating.

I really like this app. It us room for a few improvements, but overall seems to work as advertised. I haves experienced any lag or anything, the transitions are cool. If I wish the developers would provide an option to record on a selected device, reason being, I have several older iOS devices, and 1 newer, larger 1 with much more storage. The app records video on each individual device, so my older devices can't really record much video at all :( Change that feature and it's a 5 star app. I'm sure I could come up with other change ideas like lower thirds built in, but it us ability to cut to a graphic so it's ok. A graphic overlay would be great though. All in all not bad. With the $$

I was a bit wary of buying this app at first, for the one reason: it seemed too good to be true. Everything this promised to do for $5? No way! I'm better off taking that $5 to Starbucks then wasting it here on an app that won't work. But in the middle of the night when my good decision-making skills are down, I decided to buy it. Let me tell you, all of my concerns were unnecessary. This app truly delivers! I tried I'd out yesterday having gotten my hands on a variety of devices, although I had nothing to film when I wanted to test it (isn't that always the case?). My devices were an iPhone 5s, iPhone 4, iPad mini v3, and iPad retina v4. Let me start off with a very important point: The current version of the app will only work on iOS 8, and the iPhone 4 only goes to 7. When trying to download it, I was prompted to download an earlier version that was compatible with iOS 7. It installed, connected, and worked without a problem (although the camera wasn't as great, it's awesome to know you can still use it). The connection was extremely simple, and none of the devices disconnected during the entire test. I watched the video tutorial on getting better sound using a mixer and splitter cable, but I had recently purchased the iRig HD and wanted to see if by some miracle that would work for audio allowing for a truly battery-operated recording session. Hallelujah! It worked! I was able to plug in my condenser mic to the iRig HD using its phantom power into one of the devices, choosing that as its audio source and placing the mic where I'd like, ending up with a completely portable system with superior sound! The transitions worked well between the video, although it took a minute to figure out the controls (the video tutorial left much to the imagination). One thing to note is the video files are saved first to each device, then sent to the "control" device after the recording has stopped. This is important for both battery and time, as multiple gigs being transferred from multiple devices can take some serious time. I only did a 90 second test, and it took 6 minutes for everything to transfer while only 5 feet from the router. I understand the technology and why it has to be this way, but it's a warning that you need to prepare your time appropriately. The only thing I found lacking in is system is the ability to chroma key (use a green screen). Since there isn't an export option that works for Adobe Premiere or Final Cut, having it in-app is extremely important. If the app could do that, it would be indeed a complete solution and deserve 5 stars. Without it, it's great for specific applications or as a novelty. The technology is great though and these guys nailed it. Hopefully with a future update we'll see the chroma key and an actual manual. Still, it's very worth the $5. PROS -Use a variety of devices -Support for iRig HD for superior sound -easy connectivity -easy to use -great interface CONS -Instructions consist of 3 quasi-informative tutorials -minimal (almost none) support -no option for green screen Summary. Worth every penny. Add green screen support, and not only will I bump up my review to 5 stars, I'll be singing your praises from the mountain tops to every videographer, interviewer, church, and blog I know (which is a very large number). Be repaired to figure it out on your own though. Looking forward to future updates!
