Hey Guys, 

Sorry I haven’t chimed in here lately. Just been quite busy with the show and whatnot. Was really cool to see it being used in the gym! Love to hear more about that and how people are using it for other applications. 

Nevets can you explain to me what’s wrong with your recordings. I’m not sure i understand the need for the extra phone on the tripod you were talking about? 

Also, everyone please fire your questions or suggestions at me. I think after the show and now that we have more users, its pretty clear what I need to change and update but always wanting to hear more.

cheers,

Toby 

Thanks for posting Toby. I’ve been using the app a lot and really like it. Do you have an idea of what updates will be coming?

A couple of improvements I would like to see are:

  1. recording the video with the iPhone horizontal. Right now, I have to use another app to rotate the video. Posting to YouTube is better in horizontal. I contacted support and they mentioned you are working on this.
  2. being able to trim the video on the app would be nice.
  3. Being able to start the video with a voice command would be cool.
  4. More instructions and support on the app would be nice too. I’ve had to kind of figure out things myself.

This looks great, I'm gonna give it a try. I have a two mirror setup for inside, but this is great as it would allow me to keep my head in generally the same place.

I wonder how hard it is to see what's on the iPad when it's sunny out though. I'm a DJ and use my iPad for a controller sometimes. I've done outdoor parties when it's sunny, and it's pretty tough to see what's going on, even with brightness all the way up. To be fair, my DJ app is mostly dark mode, which makes it a lot harder.

This for sure. If you’ve had any issues figuring this out you can imagine the difficulties for a non-savvy tech person. I downloaded the app. Then ...nothing.

It's not too bad. I have tried it with the sun behind me and I can see it ok.

I sent them feedback on that. They are working on it.

Switching between the live view and recording was a little choppy, but since I got a new iPhone, that problem is no more. I was using an iPhone 6S.

I figured out the issue with iMovie and the rotation of the video not staying. You need to launch to YouTube from iMovie instead of from Photos. You guys may have known this, but hey, I'll be 59 this year. I used a slide rule in High School!

So my process for uploading videos is as follows.

  1. View video in Mirror Vision app and send to Photos.
  2. Trim for length and where the slow motion starts and ends in Photos.
  3. Send to iMovie to rotate.
  4. Rotate using two figures to correct orientation.
  5. Save changes.
  6. Push the Share button and choose YouTube.
  7. Upload video to YouTube from iMovie.

Ok, so in our future updates v2 we’ll allow the app to work in landscape. Hopefully this will solve your issues :) 

 

At the the moment I appreciate your tenacity. I didn’t realise so many would want the footage in landscape.

Those of us who work with on-line instructors or post My Swing videos here at The Sand Trap usually upload our videos to YouTube. The portrait versions get downgraded by YouTube for some reason. So landscape keeps the High Def and is also preferred by instructors (at least mine with Evolvr).

The Mirror Vision app is a really good idea though. I find I am using it almost every practice session.
