Click on the Upload icon on the bottom middle of your screen. You will get the option to register/log in. Enter your Gmail account or phone number, whichever you find plausible. You will get an OTP from the app. Enter the OTP and confirm your registration.
The short video maker app will direct you to the recording camera directly after this step. Here are some of the features that this Chingari camera offers to its users:
Click on the 1x icon on the screen. You will get the option to adjust the speed of your video recording. The app will display you with four options- 05x, 1x, 2x, and 3x.
1x is the default speed or normal speed for recording any video. 0.5x speed lets you record your videos in slow motion (half the pace). 0.2x is for double and 0.3x at triple this speed. So both of them allow you to record videos in time-lapse. Select any one option and click on back. Now you can record a video at an altered speed!
A user can set a timer before recording a video. Just click on the Timer icon on the mid-right of your screen. The app will automatically set a timer of 3 seconds before the video recording begins. You can always turn this on or off whenever you pause the video. The timer option is especially helpful when recording videos from the selfie camera.
