How To Record Something –After– You See It

The Story of Vaptur:

Vaptur ™ is a new Patent Pending video recording technology that allows you to video record something after you see it.

We created Vaptur (a play on the words “Video Capture”) to be a camera App with this built in capability.

As far as we know this is the first time that two screens (live and constant delayed) were set up in a camera for the sole purpose of allowing someone to record something after they see it live by using the record button to record what they see in the delayed screen.

The genius of this idea is that you use the “Record” button to grab video clips after they happen live, seconds after you decide they are worth recording. This is not video editing per say, but is live-clipping where you know ahead of time what is going to happen so you know just when to start and stop recording to get just the clip you want with no editing and in near real time. You could call it predictive recording because you can predict the ‘future’ of what will soon be happening in the ‘delay’ screen. In this way you “edit” or “live clip” live video by simply using the record button.

Here is how it works:

Start Vaptur™ and wait for something interesting to happen.iP6plusSoccer_landscape_4

When you see something interesting happen, you can press the green Vaptur record button after you see it to record what you just saw as it appears again in the 8 second delay box.


Here is a picture of how it works:

Patent Pending Vaptur™ Video Recorder Released to App Store April 7th

Vaptur LogoWe are happy to announce that Vaptur™ was approved in one day and has now been added to the Apple App store.

Introductory price is $1.99 US
Final price will be $2.99 US

Vaptur ™ released April 7th, 2015 is a Patent Pending Video Recording App that allows you to “Record it after you see it”.

“REVOLUTIONARY” is a big word….but we believe Vaptur will change the way people record videos since they can post a great clip seconds after they record with no editing. Use the delay screen to “Film the Perfect Shot Every Time – After You See It!”  No wasted space on your phone….just record what you want and post it!

iP6plus_portrait_1Vaptur is an App that basically allows you to see and film just the clip you need on your phone every time. The App has a built-in variable timed delay that allows you to go back in time and film what you just viewed (PIP technology allows the user to see the live screen and the delay screen simultaneously). Vaptur is available for the iPhone and we are currently working on the release for Android.

How do I regain memory to allow Vaptur recording when my device is too full?

First try and copy files from your camera roll to the cloud or other external storage to free up space.

Next free up memory used by Vaptur by sharing to iCloud.  If iCloud is not available for sharing from Vaptur, try sharing to the Camera roll so you can then save the videos from the camera roll to your computer or other external storage.

Once the video is shared to the Camera roll (confirm this by playing it from the Camera roll), you can then delete the video from Vaptur by swiping from right to left over the video name as it is listed in the file list then select delete.

You need at least 5% of your device memory available for recording with Vaptur .


How much memory must be available to record with Vaptur?

Vaptur needs at least 5% of total free memory to be available for recording.  Due to the heavy processing used for dual screen processing, the App needs enough space for the rough video to be stored before it is processed for playback and sharing after initial recording.  If you don’t have enough memory, check out the post on how to regain memory to allow recording.

The calculation relies on the system to tell the app how much space is available and what the total file system size is, then divides the former by the latter and makes sure that’s greater than 5%.

For example,  2.3 GB of free memory may not be sufficient depending on the size of your device’s memory.

2.3 / 16 GB = 14% = sufficient

2.3 / 64 GB = 4% = not sufficient

2.3 / 128 GB = 2% = not sufficient

Vaptur Dashcam – Record it after it happens

Using Vaptur™ is a great way to set up a Dashcam (Dash Cam) since you don’t have to record the entire time,  just when you decide something was worth recording.


Whenever I drive anywhere now I hook up my phone to a charger and clip it into a windshield phone bracket (I have had good luck with the Brackertron XTremeGrip XL holders).

If anything interesting happens I can easily capture the clip as I drive.  Thankfully I have not recorded any accidents but many near misses and way too many examples of bad drivers (which I tag with #vaptur and #baddrivers).  I have also captured good driving (#gooddrivers) as well.
