The artistic effects available in popular photo manipulation app Prisma can now be applied to up to 15 seconds of video (via Mashable).

The company behind Prisma announced the new "beta" feature for iOS devices on Thursday, and said a total of nine styles are currently available for video, but that number is set to "soar weekly".

The styles include Candy, Cold Fish, Paper Art, Illegal Beauty, Tokyo, Gothic, Curly Hair, The Scream, and Roy.

The video support was made possible because of a change to the way the app processes effects, which now happen locally on the device, rather than on Prisma's servers.

According to Prisma, video processing time depends on the device: on an iPhone 7, it will take around 30 seconds to process a 15-second video, but that time approximately doubles on an iPhone 6S. 

Prisma uses the predictive analyses of DeepDream-esque neural network technology to achieve its stylistic interpretations, which typically makes them more unique than standard photo filters. The developers also plan to add GIF support "very soon", while filter quality will continue to be improved.

Prisma is a free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

Prisma is amazing.

I'd be surprised if Apple or Google don't try to snap it up soon.

"Prisma can now be applied to up to 15 seconds of video"

You said "up to (no more than ) 15 seconds of video." This is not true. Mashable did not say this.
It is up to 15 seconds though. Guess MR tried it out.

Prisma works in a different way, plus you have to realise the scale/load.
Actually Style (http://macdaddy.io/style) works in exactly the same way as Prisma. And they are both using neural nets / AI. Style can process unlimited (no 15 second restriction) video and has been able to for months.

Neither invented the concept. This is the original paper on (fast) style transfer, which in turn is based upon the truly original paper which is about the concept transfer of artistic style (slowly, requiring a big GPU: https://arxiv.org/abs/1508.06576)

Reference that both Style and Prisma use: https://arxiv.org/abs/1603.08155

Prisma weren't even the first iOS app to do it. They were just the first to do it for free.

I love using this tool. I do wish they would make it possible to choose the native aspect ratio of photos taken from the iPhone, in addition to the square photos they already support.

That, I'm interested in trying out this new video processing.
