Fix lag

I like the app, it’s useful for editing and the premium makes the app even better. One thing though, lag. When zooming in with motion blur and tiles on my video/picture, it lags crazy. And when I use the “move & transform” option and I move the video/picture more than X or Y 1,544.7, it also lags with motion blur and tiles. In easier words, when I use “move & transform” option it just lags when I move the video/picture far from the screen you can see. It also lags crazy while using rays and premium 3D shapes with motion blur. I know this is a lot but it also lags when I use directional blur, and putting the blending and opacity to lighten effect on it. I think the problem is mostly motion blur for me though, so anything like 3D shapes which I rarely use is not a big deal for me. Also one more thing, it sometimes crashes when I am editing, then I have to reopen the app and sometimes my progress doesn’t save, which gets annoying. I heard this happens to other people too, maybe it’s happening depending on how much layers you have or effect. But it’s overall kinda ok for me, I have been editing for a long time and I’ve gotten used to the lag. Yet annoying at some points though. It mostly happened when the new update to alight motion came, but I kind of love the update and the cool new features. I rate this a 4/5 because the app is awesome! But yet there are cons of it too, I’m pretty sure I named all of the cons in this review. I hope you fix this sometime soon!

It’s a good app kinda

The apps not bad but like the free version you can do a lot of stuff with it and you can make some pretty cool edits but now when the update came most of the stuff like the effects or all you had to have premium like a membership so I had this edit I made and I didn’t get the Membership yet I was planning on getting it but not anytime soon so my edits were all based on free affects so I made the saber effect for one of my edits but now I can’t export the edit because it’s changed to membership so I’m not able to download it to my photos because I’m broke and sometimes the thing like glitches a lot and it just closes you out of the app which is pretty annoying every time I make a long edit it’s always closing me out of the app and the fact that I use are like the wave ones the way the facts and like all of them are for memberships so I can’t I are used to use that affect all the time but now I can’t use it anymore because the membership and stuff not saying that should be like there should be no membership because the app itself and going on like the free you can make some pretty cool edits with it which is why I gave it like four stars so that’s not bad but like now the times all the effect are all for membership and I don’t have that 😗✌️

Love it 100%. However

I love alight motion! It great for editing, animating, and I just love everything about it. It’s makes my animations better and it’s simple to use (well for me). However, the problem is that there would be weird stuff going on. Like for one, it would show all my photo and I would be fine, but then all of a sudden, the photos disappear. Even when I allow it to use all photos, it wouldn’t appear. I had to delete and reinstall the app again for this to work again. I’m not particularly happy about this because all the projects I had in there are now gone and the data is, well of course, gone. The next thing is that it would just randomly crash and take me back to my Home Screen. I had this problem many times before and it’s really annoying because I had to delete it again (and I just deleted it , the two situations happened within an hour of each other). I was completely confused because before these problems alight motion was perfect (little problems here and there but it’s not crucial). I’m not sure if it’s a bug or some other thing causing this but I don’t know how to fix it.
