What Is Glimpses?
When you want to show your awesome photos from your recent vacation but there are just too many, you can either sort through them and heavy-heartedly decide which ones to toss aside, or you show them all – with a Still Motion Video.
Still Motion Videos show photos in very rapid succession, usually for the fraction of a second. Mix that with a soundtrack, and you can make your video action-packed and powerful, or mellow and soothing. Or even both.
Glimpses lets you create such high-quality videos with just a few clicks.
Import your photos (from your Photos.app library, a hard drive, Flickr or Instagram), add one or more soundtracks and you’re set – Glimpses figures out the rest.
The app creates your video in a smart way:
- The video’s resolution (ranging from 240p to 4K) will be calculated by looking at the smallest photos you supply
- Its duration is based on the amount of photos you imported, and the duration of the soundtracks you supplied
- Soundtracks that turn out too long will automatically fade out smoothly at the end of your video, whereas short soundtracks can be looped
- Pillar- and letterboxes can be eliminated, if the photo’s resolution allows for it
- Due to built-in facial recognition, photos are positioned in a way that faces aren’t outside of the video’s frame
However, control is always at the user’s fingertips. For example, soundtracks can be edited so only your favorite part of it is used, in an easy-to-use, yet powerful way:
Additionally, every other aspect of your video can be manually set up:
What’s New in v2.1?
- Improves integration with macOS by providing a QuickLook plugin that offers an easier and quicker way to identify Glimpses project files
- Improves integration with Photos.app by supporting drag and drop from the app and offering a Share Extension so photos can be imported to Glimpses without leaving Photos.app
- Photos can be edited using external editors
- Shuffle photos to add a random touch to your video
- Performance improvements, refinements and bug fixes throughout the app
