Moment's RTRO app gains a gorgeous 'Instant Film' photo feature
What you need to know
- RTRO just got a big new feature that brings "Instant Film" to the app.
RTRO by Moment is already a pretty cool app that can create vintage-looking video for sharing on social media and whatnot, but the app just took a leap forward by adding its new "Instant Film" feature to the mix.
Created in collaboration with Casey Newton, the new feature and its effects – called "Film Stocks" – are mighty impressive.
The Analog Effects Engine that RTRO uses is unique in the way it works, allowing developers to create new effects without having to manually generate them.
The updated RTRO app is available for download now. The new "Instant Film" feature is behind a one-time $50 purchase, although subscription options are also available if you prefer.
