FxGuru Lets You Add Mech Attacks And UFO Invasions To iPhone Videos

Think Apple’s “Misunderstood” Christmas ad would have been improved with the addition of a random piano drop, ghost bride, or chainsaw-wielding madman?

If so, you can re-create the commercial your way using Picadelic’s FxGuru: Movie FX Director app. Previously an Android exclusive, the app lets you incorporate a variety of Hollywood-style horror, sci-fi and action movie effects to any iPhone video — with virtual guidelines showing you how to incorporate effects seamlessly, while 24 different “Cinematic” filters allow you enhance the atmosphere of any scene.

FxGuru has recently received its latest update, adding 7 new effects — including a Cupid’s Arrow, designed to “melt any heart.”

The app features 12 free effects, while additional ones can be added with in-app purchases.
