One of the recommended apps in “top free apps” on App Store for Mac is Motion FX. It’s  presented under the entertainment category by Autodesk and is for sure unlike any other applications of its kind. Its based on an extremely creative idea and its unique and fascinating UI makes it all the more desirable. 

So what is Motion FX? Well, it switches your computer’s camera on, and the magic begins. Unlike any other Computer’s camera based application, where the screen will show your face (or anything which is in front of camera), Motion FX will make your finger emit fire, your eyes will radiate light which flow freely on screen, your cursor will be able to paint dynamic smoke - list is only restricted by your imagination. 

This Mac application creates stunning visuals by using face detection on OS X Lion to locate every pair of eyes in front of camera, and uses award winning motion detection technology to react to even slightest motion. The effects, like dynamic smoke, plasma color flow etc. are then fluently applied and result is awesome. You can click a crazy snapshot or even record video.

Effect paint allows to paint all sort of amazing effects on screen by just moving your cursor. The bright colors flowing freely on the screen look simply great.

Other features include video warp and color detect. Color detect is a little complicated, it’s supposed to apply effect to unique color, and I wasn’t able to make it work. But video warp is cool. You could see your face (or any other object) getting distorted - live - as if you were looking in a reflective lake and someone disturbed the water, but off course you could make it more disturbing then distorted reflection in lake water. You could choose from effects being displayed by animated thumbnails at the bottom of your screen.

Motion FX supports Lion’s full screen mode, so you can completely focus on visual treat being served. What else, you could select the option for cycling modes in a random order, and let the screen show swirling vibrant colors which morph into dense smoke.  

Support for Multiple displays could be really useful for people who want to do something else on another display while showing off these effects to audience.

Along with bug fixes, the new version 1.1.2 can record video with audios, so go ahead and make some cool/funny/scary videos with Motion FX. Check out snapshots here
