Since the launch of Cinemagraph Pro for macOS in April 2014, Flixel has worked tirelessly to find new ways to delight our fast-growing community of artists with software tools and web services that empower the cinemagraph creation process and help bring living photos to the mainstream.
Winning a much coveted 2014 Apple Design Award with our initial release, enabled us to evangelize the cinemagraph medium to photographers, digital marketers and leading brands around the world.
Today, the Flixel Community has thousands of members and touches every continent with enthusiastic and highly engaged users. More importantly, the 500,000+ cinemagraphs created and shared by the Flixel Community demonstrates to the world that cinemagraphs have taken their place alongside photography and video as the next great visual medium.
In turn, we used our community’s feedback to improve Cinemagraph Pro with features and integrations with key partners like Adobe that improve workflows and enable many new ways to create and use cinemagraphs. We also launched Flixel Cloud ― the only purpose-built platform for hosting and streaming cinemagraphs in stunning HD. We are proud of our evolution and all that we as a community have accomplished together; now, we are ready to welcome the evolution of the medium with Cinemagraph Pro 2 for macOS.
