What you need to know

  • Focos Live has received a big new update with an all-new media selector.
  • The app also includes a handful of other improvements including support for Danish language.

Focos Live made a splash a few years ago when it gave us all a way to make the most out of the depth data collected by the cameras in devices like iPhone 12. Since then it's gone through a few iterations and now its latest update adds support for a new media selector and more.

Starting with that media selector, users now have more ways to filter for conditions such as resolution, aspect ratio, and more when picking the videos and images they want to work with.

With the newly designed media selection interface, it is easier for you to choose videos & images by filtering them under the conditions of aspect ratio, resolution, duration & creation date. You can also mark the videos & images with color tags, then filter them with colors. I tried to make this solution because one of our user's mentioned that video management is most needed for optimization in the video editor.

There's more here as well, not least a new effect tool and a Danish translation. And we can't forget the obligatory bug fixes and performance improvements, can we?

  • A new effect tool allows you to add cool effect onto the video layers to make your project cooler than before.
  • Also added some transitions which you can find by tapping the arrow icon between the two video layers.
  • New language Danish has been added. My appreciation goes to Dede Brooklyn.
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements.

You can download the newly updated Focos Live from the App Store right now. It's free with in-app purchases available.
