So the number one requested feature was private videos – and now it’s here! When you create a video when you have an user account. It is automatically private until you decide to make it public. No one can see if except for you!
We launched a newsletter than will go out like once a month to let you know the newest features and new and update you on how your videos are performing. In the newsletter we annouced for instance our newest crazy font additions for titles. Sign up for a user account today!
We also have a top secret hardware project to help stream gifs to your television set, or on a projector to have fun at parties or just kick back and zone out. It’s called the GIFBOX and you can pre-order one now for $85!

Yeah! We reached YAM! Yet Another Milestone. 400,000+ Views on the MVGEN Youtube channel featuring great music and videos from artists from around the world. We Tipple our Fedoras to you!
We are stoked and so should you be – that means the videos you make and if you opt-in to send it to YouTube will get tons of views – which is really part of our larger mission: To get your music out there and heard and seen by as big of an audience as you want. We love that the videos are getting better and better!
We also made a few changes around the place with more to come. Here is a list:
Search In The Archives:
Now you can search the archives for your own videos or for other incredible videos from other artists!
New Rendering Engine:
We rebuild the rendering engine and flushed the database of all the broken GIFS. The engine flags and removes all GIFS that would cause unpredictable renders some times. Not anymore! We also changed the process for splicing the GIFS and we are super pleased with the results. There also was a change in Quicktime that needed a new render formula. Old videos will be converted to the new MP4 cross platform version soon.
One New Effect! Bubble Warp!:
Pick this and it goes all weird and warped thanks to some advanced mathematics!
Sorry for the delay on effects. I had some real world music videos that premiere in May coming out!
Also small changes like automatic naming convention for youtube/soundcloud/bandcamp, and general code improvements.
We got a huge TODO list I won’t burden you with here, but remember please consider a donation – we are trying to rock without ads for as long as possible. Your donations go toward server costs. Even a dollar or a little bitcoin means a lot! You can also consider buying a some MVGEN merchandise too!

OMG! We got a slew of new filters coming online as promised. Here is a run down of them:
REVOLVER: Rotates the GIFS. There will be multiple speeds , but pair this with a frame rate to change the flow
RING OF FIRE: A literal ring of fire around the frame. Burn Baby Bury like disco inferno.
FIRES OF HELL: A roasting flame coming up from down below.
ETHEREAL SHIMMER: Ghostly haunting sprites float around. Dreamy. <3
CYBERPUNK: A series of high tech overlays for that cyberpunk feel. [ Still in Beta ]
GEOMETRIC ABUSE: A series of geometric patterns overlaid to mess with your head. [ Still in Beta ]
STAB TO DEATH: When you feeling aggressive this filter with stab the gifs and make them bleed. Society is to blame.
SHIA LABOUF: Not sure why one would need this, but it is there if you do!
DISCO: Flashing strobe lights like a discotheque or is that disco tech?
SPOOKY DISCO: This will do a intense inverse flash. Warning this thing is intense and could trigger epileptic fits.
Please don’t overdose! Use your filters responsibly!:
Don’t worry there are even more filters the way before the year end.
We are about to preview a Beta Redesign of the site.
We also knocked out a few bug fixes, related to submitting audio and it’s metadata. That’s all good!
It might be time to expand what kind of audio we can take in to include some other audio services.
