Ratings and Reviews
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love making Gacha videos on this. It’s very useful and can be accessed without internet. But there’s two things that bug me a lot.
1. When a song is DM protected: I hate this because I accidentally put 2 of the same songs in my playlist and one of that song is DM protected and another isn’t! I would really like to put in some more songs that might actually fit the theme of my video. So, if you can, please try your best to fix this
2. Ken Burns, transitions and speed: When you do Ken Burns and Transitions, please please please make an option to turn all of them off and same with the transitions. It’s really tiring having to scroll through everything. And speed, why is it not available for IPad 😩😫!? Do you know how much better my gacha videos would be without having to stare at someone saying ‘Yes,’ or ‘No,’ for five incredibly long seconds. I know it doesn’t sound too bad but I don’t know what’s wrong with adding speed to the IOS version!
Alright app... but could be better
It’s not a bad app, and gets the job done, but it has some drawbacks. I’ve use it as an artist, to speed up time-lapse videos to post to social media. I can only speed up X2 which is frustrating, since I have to save the new video, import it, speed, save and repeat until I get to my preferred length (for social media formats). If I want to add music... that’s a whole new problem. I often crop and add just short clips of music, not a whole song, and I have to listen really carefully and scroll along, and try to clip it in the right place. Annoying, particularly if I don’t estimate the timing right and have to undo/clip again multiple times. And then I add my video into the “project”- if I added the video first, I wouldn’t be able to clip the music. So like I said, it gets the job done for what I need it to do, but there could be multiple improvements.
Another issue is this app takes up like 600MB- just over half a GB of data on my phone. Not cool. Please reduce the space somehow- given how I what and how often I use the app, it’s not really a good amount of space to be taking up.
Love this app!!
This app is so good and useful, I first downloaded it for a school project and then kept on using it for other stuff. I would definitely recommend this app but the only reason I gave it 4 stars (I would give it 4.5 but that is not an option and I didn't give it five because I want people to read this and understand my views) is because when u open up the app and press add (+) it's not as easy as it should be to press movie/trailer and get started. I don't know if anyone else is having this problem but I spend 5 - 10 minutes trying to open up a new project! Please look at this problem and I know it isn't just my phone because on every other app it works perfectly. This still is a great app so definitely get it but this note is mainly for the producers. So again please please please look into this!! I know this app could be perfect! Thank you
