The most popular film-making app receives huge update that will transform how your smartphone videos look

FiLMiC Pro is one of the best apps that you can get if you want to squeeze the best quality of video out of your smartphone.

The application has full manual controls, supports different aspect ratios, including cinematic ones, it is fine-tuned to work with popular gimbals and is a reliable and solid workhorse for the phone film enthusiasts.

And now, for the first time, FiLMiC is rolling out a professional LUT pack for color grading that includes for the first time LOG (LOGV2) profile recording to smartphones.

On the latest iPhones, shooting in the new format will allow you to get two and a half additional stops of dynamic range and will make for a noticeable improvement to quality.

And here is the official info from the company:

In case you are wondering what it means to get two and a half additional stops, here it is, visualized neatly below with a scale of gray:

The ability to color grade with pre-built LUTs right from the app is also something exciting.

All of this is a free download over at the FiLMiC website for those who have the app, and if you don't yet have it, you can get it at the link below:

Editing 4K videos is not possible without either loosing quality or framerate during conversions. Also, you're limited how long you can film a 4k video continuously on android/samsung - makes it annoying or even difficult to edit and splice when you have to deal with multiple files rather than one. But i'm glad you're enjoying your limited abilities.. because I wouldnt do real video editing on even Samsung - believe me I have tried - and iPad/iPhone is so much better. It just makes more sense to showcase vidoe editing apps for iOS devices. Almost pointless for Android.

Not sure what app out of the many you're talking about. There are so many amazing video editors on Android, including Adobe Premiere Clip... Not that I would edit on a phone when I have a PC...

I wonder how well this would work with LG's CineLog on my V30.
