Vizzywig 8HD gets an amazing Apple Watch companion

Do you shoot HD or Ultra HD video? Have a GoPro camera? If the answer to either or both of those questions is yes and you're the happy owner of an Apple Watch, then you owe it to yourself to get the latest version of i4software's Vizzywig 8HD (US$99.99, universal).

You may remember Vizzywig 8HD from i4software's sponsorship the first week Apple World Today was up and running. It's a full ultra-high-definition film production studio and editor in an easy to use iPad and iPhone app. Seriously, you can shoot at a resolution of 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second on the iPad Air 2, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, add titles and transitions, and then publish the edited movie.

So what does the Apple Watch have to do with Vizzywig 8HD? The company recently added GoPro integration to the app, meaning that you can bring in footage from a GoPro camera for editing. Well, if you have that Apple Watch, you can control exposure and zoom of either your iOS device or GoPro camera. Recording, building a movie, and controlling the camera(s) is as simple as tapping on your wrist. You also have access to your Vizzywig library and can view the videos on your wrist.

If you don't already own Vizzywig 8HD and are thinking of getting into ultra-high-definition video, the app running on an appropriate iOS device is one of the least expensive ways to start. After your videos have made you a little money, you can afford to get that GoPro and a drone to mount it on...
