Triller is a popular music video creating app, that you might feel is similar to Dubsmash but there’s a lot more to it. The app has been developed by David Leiberman in collaboration with music director, Colin Tilley, who has directed various popular videos of Justin Bieber, Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Minaj, to name a few. The app lets you choose your favorite songs and then take various takes of you, dubbing that song. Then, Triller uses a cool algorithm (which is said to match a professional editor) to automatically edit the various takes into one.

Note: The songs available in the app are limited to 29-seconds but your own music isn’t, so if you want a full length proper music video to show off your rockstar skills, you can choose a song from your device.

  1. You will then be presented with the camera viewfinder, where you can select the front or the rear camera. Choose different filters and record in normal, fast or slow motion. Hit the capture button and the video should start capturing. When capturing, you can use the bar below to zoom in and out.
  2. Don’t worry if the first take isn’t that great, as the app’s skill lies in using multiple takes and then editing them together for best results. After a take is done, hit the plus button to capture another take.
  3. After you have taken enough takes, hit the “Make Triller video” button on the bottom right and you will be presented a full video using your takes. The Triller edited video looks amazingly cool but if you want changes, you can use the “Re Edit” option available in the Share menu.
