As our Quick Start Guide points out, Filmakr is both a video camera app AND a video editor. Our design approach encourages you not to edit: Filmakr presets finish your film before you start it, and all you have to do is MAKE your film with one tap. However, when you do need to make tweaks, Filmakr is a powerful in-line video editor.
Entering Playback Mode
Filmakr toggles between a CAMERA MODE and a PLAYBACK MODE.
When you see the red RECORD BUTTON Filmakr is in CAMERA MODE. When you see the white SHUTTER closed over the record button Filmakr is in PLAYBACK MODE, the mode in which you can play and edit your loaded film project.
To enter Playback Mode just touch your Filmstrip.
Video Editor: Filmstrip Tips
You can do any desired top-level editing tweaks directly in your Filmstrip. Rearrange, remove, and duplicate clips. Create B-roll, picture-in-picture as well as Intros and Outros. Also import video, photos and music from your Camera Roll or Dropbox.
