CINEMAGRAPH PRO WINS APPLE DESIGN AWARD AT WWDC 2014
TORONTO, CANADA (June 3rd, 2014) -- Flixel Photos Inc. announced today that Cinemagraph Pro for Mac has received the prestigious Apple Design Award at the World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Cinemagraph Pro is the only professional tool specifically designed for the creation of living photos, a hybrid media form that combines the timeless quality of a photograph and elements of moving video. With its patented “live-masking” technology, artists can preview their creations in real time and output HD (1080) and UHD (4K) quality living photographs.
“This is a great honor for our team,” says Flixel’s co-founder and CEO, Philippe LeBlanc. “We are absolutely thrilled to see Cinemagraph Pro receive such a prominent recognition from Apple.”
Cinemagraph Pro, Flixel’s professional desktop application for creating living photos was launched back in late February 2014. Within weeks, the living photo software achieved the coveted featured status on the Mac App Store where it reached the top rank in the paid photography category in nearly 80 countries. It also reported sales of over $250,000 in its first quarter of launching the desktop software.
“Winning the ADA is another major milestone for our company,” says LeBlanc. “The continued success of Cinemagraph Pro further supports our vision of a future where living photography will be present everywhere.”
Flixel gained a strong following after Tyra Banks utilized Flixel’s technology on Cycle 20 of America’s Next Top Model to create unique and arresting images previously unseen in the fashion world.
Cinemagraph Pro includes support for HD (1080) and UHD (4K) resolution video output, masking tools, image adjustments, seamless looping options and a wide range of filters. Creators can upload and share their living photos in high resolution to Flixel’s community as well as to a variety of social networks. Flixel also offers its audience the ability to embed living photos onto websites and blogs.
