Video Star is a free music video creation app that I had a little fun trying out on my iPad today. To create a music video on Video Star just select a song that you have stored on your iPad then start shooting live video. The music will play for as long as you record or until the end of the song. You can also import images from your iPad to create your video. Video Star also lets you apply special effects to your video. Some of the effects that you can apply include text boxes, title boxes, frames around images, transitions, and split screens.
Your completed Video Star video can be exported to YouTube or sent to anyone via email.
Applications for Education
Video Star could be a great app for students to use to create short videos. The app is designed for fun music video projects, but it could be used for creating short documentary videos too. Have students record their own narrations and use them in Video Star with pictures about their chosen topics.
