Video Creation Platform Vemory Acquires Video Editing App Splice

Photo organization and video creation platform Vemory has announced its acquisition of video editing app Splice. The acquisition will see Vemory expanding Splice’s own features, while also integrating Splice’s video editing technology into the Vemory video creation platform. Splice will continue to operate as a separate app.

With Vemory, users import images from their device’s camera roll, as well as social media profiles, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, among others. The app organizes these photos and gives soundtracks to groups of themed images, presenting them to users as videos. These can be shared with friends as-is, or edited with various sound clips and display templates to create the perfect look.splice 650Meanwhile, Splice [pictured above] allows users to combine HD photos and videos into a single project, adding music, transitions, text and other options to the final product. Users create their projects on a timeline, dragging and dropping items into the perfect formation. Users can control the sound mixing for multiple tracks of audio, and can add music from iTunes and other music sources.

“Through this acquisition we will offer the best of both worlds – Vemory’s ability to intelligently find relevant photo-memories along with Splice’s advanced tools to customize your own content,” said Hunter Powell, CEO of Vemory, in a statement. “We’re already hard at work using Vemory’s modern technologies to provide Splice users even more control over how they organize their pictures and videos.”

Vemory is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store. Splice is also available to download for free, while a paid version costs $3.99.
