Multi-angle filming is a trick as old as movies or television – you set up multiple cameras, roll film, and edit between them after the fact. If you didn’t have multiple cameras, you had to do multiple takes from the different angles. Roland wants to make this easier, with the 4XCamera Maker app for iOS.(more…)
