Video Splash takes the concept of Color Splash and applies it to video. Simply choose where you want color and the rest of the video will be made black and white. The app has its flaws, but for $0.99 it is worth checking out.

Cartoonatic Christmas

This app is a ton of fun. Apply excellent cartoon effects live as you film. There are a variety of fun and different effects. For an in-app upgrade, you can take still photos as well. Cartoonatic is a free app, definitely worth adding to your video arsenal.

Decent Apps

PopArt VidCam

by MacPhun LLC

PopArt VidCam is a less full-featured version of Videocam illusion. There are 10 effects that you can shoot in real time. The app is easy enough to use. We would recommend going with the more full-featured Videocam illusion if you are looking to do this kind of work.
