For those of us who are mojo (Mobile Journalists) or those who may be compelled to resort to mobile journalism as complements to what they do, the challenge of using our mobile equipment for multitasking is a huge one, especially when we have a deadline to beat.
Well, here is an app that could help you beat those challenges. It is called DoubleTake from the stables of FiLMiC. According to the app-maker, DoubleTake was designed for recording multiple fields of view during live events, concerts, or any situation that requires more than one perspective to capture the moment. Simply put, the app transforms your iPhone into a multi-cam studio allowing you to capture video from two cameras at the same time on recent devices.
Such a great should come at a huge cost, right?
Anyway, the sweet part for Journalists in a third world like Nigeria is that, DoubleTake is absolutely FREE. Yippeee… 😀
The free but premium (freemium) resource can work on iOS devices with iOS 13.0 or later (multi-cam video restricted to iPhones released from 2018).
It is available for free download on the Apple-store.
Doubletke also has the capacity to produce Picture-in-Picture (PiP) Composite Mode, which works with front and rear or multiple rear lenses. Among others, PiP animates in real time, Moveable around screen, Built in anchor points and Swipe off screen.
You can also edit your composite in real time.
