We created Vaptur (a play on the words “Video Capture”) to be a camera App with this built in capability.
As far as we know this is the first time that two screens (live and constant delayed) were set up in a camera for the sole purpose of allowing someone to record something after they see it live by using the record button to record what they see in the delayed screen.
The genius of this idea is that you use the “Record” button to grab video clips after they happen live, seconds after you decide they are worth recording. This is not video editing per say, but is live-clipping where you know ahead of time what is going to happen so you know just when to start and stop recording to get just the clip you want with no editing and in near real time. You could call it predictive recording because you can predict the ‘future’ of what will soon be happening in the ‘delay’ screen. In this way you “edit” or “live clip” live video by simply using the record button.
Here is how it works:
Start Vaptur™ and wait for something interesting to happen.
When you see something interesting happen, you can press the green Vaptur record button after you see it to record what you just saw as it appears again in the 8 second delay box.
Here is a video of how it works.
Some content was stripped by our security filters, but it should be possible for one of your Editors to embed the content for you.
We just launched the App on April 7th after several years of R&D and development.
