While on the Shooting screen in shooting mode, tap the Shooting Settings button to open the Shooting Settings menu. If you’re in playback mode, tap the Shooting button first, which will then turn into the Shooting Settings button.
A tour of the Shooting Settings
Choose between different shooting qualities and frame rates. The available range of options depends upon your device. Some devices can only shoot at 1080p 30fps, while others can choose between a 1080p 30fps all the way up to 720p 240fps.
When you shoot at a higher frame rate (above 30fps) you can slow down your clip in the editing and still have smooth movement. Note that shooting at a higher frame rate uses more space on your device, and can result in strange flickering lights!
Switch between back-facing and front-facing camera, if your device has them.
Turns on your device’s flash light, if it has one, so you can add some light to a dark scene.
The stabilizer uses your device’s sensors to stabilize your video, removing the shake due to the camera being held in your hand. You can have the stabilizer on all the time, so if you mostly shoot hand-held (don’t we all?) then we recommend setting this to ON.
On the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus there is an additional PRO stabilizer mode. The PRO stabilizer makes your footage extra-smooth at the expense of latency, so your camera preview will feel sluggish as it has a second lag behind what you see with your eye!
Try out one of Vee’s beautiful live filters. The filter will be applied to your camera view, so you can preview your shots. Also when you shoot a clip, the filter will automatically be applied. Note: the filter can still be easily changed after shooting.
Turns on a rule-of-thirds grid in shooting mode. This helps you compose your shot and line up your horizons.
Ghost shows you a transparent image of the last frame of your previous clip when you’re in shooting mode. This helps you to line up your next shot with your previous. This is particularly useful if you’re creating a stop motion. #protip If you have an empty video then Ghost won’t have anything to show you, so shoot some clips first to try it out.
If you’re curious to remember where you shot a video you can turn on location tagging at any time by opening the shooting settings menu and toggling “Location” on. This will keep track of where each clip is shot as you shoot them, and show a label of that underneath the video on the Videos screen.
