Prisma to bring video editing in several weeks

Prisma is one of the most popular photo editing apps recently, using smart algorithms and powerful cloud processing to turn your photographs into various styles of art.

The tens of effects included for free with this app and the nice job that it does with images is certainly a factor in Prisma's success, but the company developing it, will not settle with photography only.

Prisma is currently working on a new tool that would apply similar visual effects to short videos, according to Prisma co-founder Alexey Moiseenkov.

In fact, the technology for those edits is ready now, but the company needs to adjust its infrastructure to support the higher load that comes with video editing. 

Good news is that this work should be done soon: Prisma says it hopes to roll out the new video editing features within the next several weeks.

It's taken me up to ten minutes for a photo to process. So a video under a minute should only take like 2 days, right?

Depends on the servers and your internet. I can get a photo processed in no more than a little over a minute on my N4.

It's very hit and miss depending on the server loads. I tried several photos on my fast WiFi at home and it ranged from about 30 seconds to 10 minutes (and others that didn't even finish and I quit). It also looks like the more intricacies in the photo, like a photo with many trees as compared to one in a plain room, the longer it takes also. The effects are great, but I just think that this might be a big headache for some.

In my case, AT&T - S6Active. I just have to double tap the filter I select and it always opens instantaneously.
