Our video camera app provides you with a range of Aspect Ratio Masks
Aspect ratio masks are black bars that cover the iPhone’s native 16:9 High Definition to provide alternate sizes for your films. You can change your mask at any time. The original footage you copy to the Camera Roll or back up to Dropbox will not have your masked permanently burned into it.
When you MAKE a film, your mask is included burned into your finished film.
What are Aspect Ratio Masks used for?
Use aspect ratio masks to prep your films for sharing on square-format social sites such and Vine and Instagram, or to give your films that cinematic widescreen look such as 2.39:1 Anamorphic, 2.20:1 (70mm).
With the arrival of television, video formats became 4:3 with standard definition and later 16:9 with high definition, which at 1.78:1 was a close match to 1.85:1 widescreen cinema. We have not included this 1.85:1 Academy Flat as an option since the video HDTV standardized ratio of 16:9 equals 1.78:1 and therefore is for all intents and purposes a comfortably close enough substitute for 1.85:1 We just didn’t feel little black slivers at the top and the bottom of the image were particularly useful nor did they say “cinematic”.
