    Great software to level up our presentation videos easily.

    Pros

    It’s a big solution for us to create videos with effective tools to make them catchy and engaging. I use it to make short tutorials and friends share academic clips among us through this.

    Cons

    Can’t use it everywhere and can't edit different types of videos.

    Unethical Company with an easy to use product

    I keep going back and forth with them.. they keep making unneccessary changes and I am always finding myself on the backfoot. As a south african.. i cant afford to pay dollars to upgrade every time they are on a WHIM to change what we can and CAN NOT have as a PRO user. (they literally are forcing you to get pro plus and not all of us can actually afford that)

    Pros

    The product is easy to use, and response on queries is quick

    Cons

    I find this company to have some ETHICS problems. I have a PRO accoutn. And will create a numbe rof vidoes with different elements using my account. TWO MONTHS LATER i will want to edit something / add a translation.. and my vidoes are UNUSEABLE as they have upgraded some of my features for PRO PLUS users only.. almost forcing me to need to UPGRADE in order to use MY OWN vidoes i created 2 months ago. I find this very unethical. Now i cant redo those videos for my clients (who need some translating done) unless i PAY to upgrade. Its like they force you to upgrade to use a video you created 2 months ago.
