Actiongram: Augmented Reality (AR) Movie Maker App: Microsoft HoloLens

Microsoft's Latest HoloLens App Is an Augmented Reality Movie Maker (+Video) 

Actiongram lets you add AR characters to videos

James Vincent | March 16, 2016

The developer kit for Microsoft's HoloLens ships at the end of this month, and the company is busy showing off new apps and experiences for the augmented reality headset. The latest is Actiongram, an AR movie maker that allows users to shoot videos of people interacting with holograms. The app isn't intended to compete with the special effects of a Hollywood green screen, but Microsoft wants HoloLens owners to create fun, short, and shareable clips for social media.
Videos of the app in action show users selecting from a menu of AR characters (including dinosaurs, astronauts, cats, and zombies) before placing them in real life settings — their front room or bathroom, for example.
