Clips is a new app for making fun videos to share with friends, family, and the world. With a few taps you can create and send a video message or tell a quick story with animated text, graphics and emoji, music, and more. 

Videos made easy
• Clips lets you create videos in real time using simple controls — no timeline, tracks, or complicated editing tools
• Shoot live video and photos or add them from your library
• Easily mute audio, adjust the length of your clips, and reorder them
• Clips looks and works great on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Live Titles
• Create animated titles and captions using just your voice
• Captions are generated automatically as you speak and match the timing of your voiceover
• Mix and match different styles throughout your video
• Tap your title to adjust text and punctuation or add inline emoji 

Fun effects
• Give your photos and video clips a comic book look with color and black & white filters
• Drop in animated speech bubbles, arrows, and banners
• Add emoji on top of any photo or video clip
• Use full-screen posters with animated backgrounds and customizable text to help tell your story
• Drag and pinch while recording to add smooth pan and zoom animations to your photos and videos
• Add a music track from your library or use built-in soundtracks that automatically adjust to the length of your video

Smart sharing
• Clips suggests people to share with based on who is in your video and whom you share with most often
• Tap a person in the share sheet to instantly send your video via Messages
• Send directly to Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other popular social media sites

NCC-Mac April 2017 Non-Meeting Non-Announcement

For those who didn't get the memo, there is NOT going to be an April NCC-Mac meeting. I'm playing hooky that day to attend a weather forecasting talk in Gold Beach.

Don't despair. I'm preparing a "virtual meeting" that should appear on the blog around the time of the usual Thursday meeting. Stay tuned.

The next "real" NCC-Mac meeting is scheduled for May 25, the last Thursday in May.
