Mail.ru Group, a Russian internet group, has announced the release of an app called Artisto, which is said to be a good competitor of the PRISMA app. But the difference is that instead of pictures Artisto will allow you to edit your videos into the style of famous artworks and images. Prisma has chased millions of dollar uptill now in iOS and Android!
Artisto is a video processing and editing app .It has 14 filters to apply on short videos (of up to 10 seconds). Most of these filters are similar to the painters such as Pablo Picasso. It is expected that the number of filters available will be increased in the future.
Representative of Artisto claimed, “We’ll also use this and related technologies to enhance our own products, for example our social networks and instant messengers.”
What makes Artisto different from Prisma?
Artisto works solely on short videos while Prisma is for editing images only. However they both offer somehow the same purpose on the stage of editing. Prisma was also developed by a former Mail.ru Group employee, Alexey Moiseenkov!
Anna Artamonova, the Vice President of Mail.ru Group, had this to say on the Prisma-Artisto comparison:
“Both applications were developed based on open-source technologies. Artisto was created by a group of machine learning enthusiasts from different units of Mail.Ru Group. It took them just weeks to improve the source code, ensuring higher efficiency and speed of video processing.”
