Today's movies from Hollywood, and even from the independent scene, typically have one thing in common, and that's the fact that they all seem to add in CGI graphics after the fact. No longer are you finding practical effects used in movies; today it's all about alien invasions and robots and explosions. This is exactly what the FxGuru: Movie FX Director app for Android gives you. With FxGuru, you can add a few awesome graphical elements to any sort of video you want. So, you want to make a video where your cat is Bruce Willis, escaping explosions and saving the world? This app allows you to do it. You can shoot a video of yourself fighting robots, flying a fighter jet, saving the world from meteorites, and more. And the best part about the app is that it's so intuitive and allows you to add these elements with a simple click.

The fact that you don't nave to possess any technical or graphics knowledge should not be downplayed here. This is probably the biggest benefit of the app. All you need to do is choose the video you want, and then add an effect from the list. Then, it's as simple as using your finger to place the effect in the location you want it, time and position, and then simply render the project.
