Do you need to change how KineMaster behaves across your projects? Or maybe you want to make sure you have the latest version? Those things and more are easy to do using KineMaster’s global Settings.
To access KineMaster’s Settings, tap on the button that looks like a gear on KineMaster’s main screen. The Settings screen gives you information on your KineMaster Premium subscription. It also includes your KineMaster version and legal information, as well as global Settings options.
The Information category opens by default and has three options:
• My Information
If you need to check your subscription status to KineMaster Premium, you can do that here.
Did you buy a subscription on a different Apple device? You can activate it on your new device here. To do that, make sure that you’re logged in to the same Apple ID that purchased your subscription. Once you’re logged in, tap the Restore Purchase button. Your subscription to KineMaster Premium will activate on your new device.
• About KineMaster
This tells you which version of KineMaster that is running on your iPhone or iPad. If you have automatic updates turned on, you should always see the latest version number here. If your version of KineMaster is out of date, please open the App Store app, search for KineMaster, and tap the update button. Or you can turn on auto updates in the Settings app.
• iOS Settings
Tapping iOS Settings will launch your iPhone or iPad’s Settings app. This may come in handy if you need to log in with a different Apple ID to restore a KineMaster Premium purchase. It can also be used to turn on or off auto updates.
The Editing category lets you adjust three different behaviors in the app. When you change these settings, they will be applied to all of your projects.
• Default Duration of a Photo Clip
When you add a photo to your KineMaster project, the amount of time it lasts on the Timeline can be changed here. Change the Duration of a Photo Clip to make every photo you import last longer or shorter on your timeline. This setting can also be changed for specific projects from the Project Settings screen.
• Default Duration of a Layer
The amount of time all layers take on the Timeline when you add them to your project can be adjusted here. This includes effect, overlay, text and handwriting layers. This setting can also be changed for specific projects from the Project Settings screen.
• Default Pan & Zoom Mode for a Photo Clip
This allows you to change the default behavior of images imported into KineMaster. There are four options.
Fit in Screen imports images into your project without cropping. If you import a picture with a different aspect ratio than your project, empty space around the image will be added. To fill the screen with your image, you will need to manually scale it to crop.
Fill Screen imports your images to fill the project screen. If they have a different aspect ratio, some cropping will occur. You can always move or re-scale your images using the Pan & Zoom tool. If they’re layers, use the scale handle on the bottom right of the image.
Ken Burns (Random) imports an image and applies the Pan & Zoom tool automatically. To adjust how your image moves with the Pan & Zoom tool, tap the image in the Primary Timeline. Then tap the Pan & Zoom tool in the options panel that opens on the right side of the screen.
Ken Burns (Face Recognition) imports images and applies the Pan & Zoom tool as well. However, if there is a face in the image, the Pan & Zoom will zero in on it. To adjust how your image moves with the Pan & Zoom tool, tap the image in the Primary Timeline. Then tap the Pan & Zoom tool in the options panel that opens on the right side of the screen.
The Sorting category allows you to choose how your media displays in the Media Browser. The default setting is Date Modified. The most recent videos and images will be the ones that were most recently created or changed. The Date Created option allows you to sort your media by the date it was made, ignoring any changes that were applied afterwards. Finally, you can sort by filename. iOS gives sequential filenames to photos and videos recorded with the default Camera app. However, third party video or camera apps may not create files this way. In that case, using this option may cause videos or images taken with other apps to appear at the top or bottom of your Media Browser.
