Apple’s Clips app has been updated with Scenic Selfies and Star Wars effect using the TrueDepth feature

Apple has updated the Clips app with a bunch of exciting effects, taking into account the iPhone X features. This update is likely to increase the Clip’s popularity among the iPhone X users. Let’s take a look at what the update is all about.

To begin with, there is the ‘Selfie Scenes’ effect (exclusive for iPhone X), which allows you to move 360-degree while recording a video scene. The True Depth feature of the iPhone X can place you into a whole new background comprising of landscapes, cities and even the Millennium Falcon or the Mega-Destroyer from Star Wars! You can move around and watch the background adjust according to your current position thereby creating an AR experience. Your appearance is filtered and transformed to match the new background. There are 10 scenes available so far and the Star Wars themed scenes could become extremely popular. The Scene effect can be very useful for creating videos when the real background is messy or crowded or just not something that suits the theme. You can instantly place yourself in more aesthetic surroundings and record your stuff.

Even if you are not an iPhone X user, you can enjoy animated stickers which include Star Wars characters like Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and others. If you like Disney, then there are Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse too. Apple has also provided posters which can be used in videos as slides. There are style filters which can convert the image into a painting. You can use stickers and royalty free soundtracks to enhance your short clips. The EffectsBrowser lets you scroll through filters, stickers, and emoji’s. You can also select a different Live Title language even if your iPhone’s system language is different.

Once your video is done you can save it to iCloud so that you can view it from other devices. You could also capture videos on your iPhone and edit them later on your iPad. The Clips 2.0 update is free and can be accessed on iPhone 5S, iPad mini 2, iPad Air, and later devices running on iOS11.1 and later.
