Can I import videos or photos from my camera roll?

Yes! Hyperpspektiv supports photo and video import.

You can export up to 1080p HD at 20Mb/s with a Premium subscription.

How do I change the settings of a filter? How do I add mirrors?

1. Tap the selected filter to open it’s settings.

2. Tapping the name of an effect allows you to make adjustments.

Below the effects settings you can add mirrors simply selecting the kind you want. While selected, slide your finger around the viewport to alter the axis. Tap once more to turn it off. You can combine multiple mirrors.

Is there a hands-free mode for recording video?

Yes. Hold down on the record button and swipe up to “latch”.

Is it available on Android?

At this time there are no plans to port Hyperspektiv to Android.

Are you an Android developer? Get in touch.

Will you ever release a desktop version? (Standalone, After Effects, Resolume, etc.)

At the moment, we’re focusing on iOS. This is something we’d love to do in the future, though.

Can I save my own filters?

Yes! You can now save your Wildcard filters by using the Save Filter button at the top right of the screen.

How many wildcard filters can I save?

Free users can save up to 3 generated wildcards, and Premium members can save an unlimited amount.

How do I use the Wildcard Function?

Wildcard is a fun feature which randomizes all of the effects and gives you a unique and near-limitless possibilities. Simply tap the Wildcard button and each time you tap it you will get a new set of random effect combinations.

You can save and name your Wildcard filters by using the button at the top-right of the screen.

Have fun with it!

Can I adjust the effects live while recording?

Yes. Each filter has a predefined live effect. Simply slide your finger around the viewport during recording to alter the effects in real-time.

Which iOS devices do you support?

We support devices running iOS 12 or greater. iPhone 5s and up, iPad Mini 2 and up.

How do I capture a photo instead of video?

Tap the capture button once to take a photo. Tap and hold the capture button to take a video.

What resolution can I capture in?

Hyperspektiv captures in 1080p in High power mode, or 720p in low-power mode (which can be toggled in the advanced settings).

To adjust the bitrate, tap the green H menu up top. You can now save up to 20Mb/s videos. Be careful about filling up your phone’s storage: the larger the bitrate, the larger the file size.

Can it capture in horizontal (landscape)?

Yes. Tilt your device 90° into landscape mode to experience and capture video and photos in full widescreen.

I can’t see very much with some filters, what gives?

Some of our filters are sensitive to the amount of light coming in through the camera. Try moving into brighter or dimmer light for varied results.

Some of my videos look compressed or not as good on Instagram — why?

Currently Instagram adds compression when you upload videos. Unfortunately this means you may occasionally notice some compression artifacts or degradation in the finer details of your Hyperspektiv videos after they’re posted on Instagram. This is an issue with Instagram’s app and it’s something we hope they address some day. Try using a filter that has less motion or color.

I bought the original version of Hyperspektiv. Where did all of my filters go?

You can use all of the filters from the original version of Hyperspektiv for free.

To unlock all of the legacy filters, tap the green Hyperspektiv menu button on top.
