It’s alright, but here’s why

I have had so many problems with this app and by far it is starting to chap my khakis. The effects are great and all along with the transitions. But gosh, every time I want to do something to a certain photo while it is grouped with at least two other photos, it decides to not show up. At all. I’m thinking “hmm maybe I turned off the eye icon” or “maybe I put the opacity down or something”. NO! not at all, it’s neither of those options. I don’t know what is going on or what is happening, but jeez I just wanna edit my videos man. I downloaded this app like a year ago (2 or 3 months ago), and it worked like a charm. But now it’s acting like I put a virus in it or something. I would like for these “problems” of mine to be handled, at least some of them. But if it starts to become worse than it already is, then I will have to take matters into my own hands.

No bugs!!! Except...

Okay. To be completely honest, this is the best app I have ever decided to download. The interface was really easy to pick up and with the new update I had none of the bugs mentioned in previous reviews. The only issue that I have is when I export footage with alpha transparency. I keep choosing the HEVC codec and choosing export, but after the loading bar appears no saving option shows up. The program stalls, and after a few seconds, crashes. I hope that this bug will be fixed in later versions, but I would still strongly recommend this app to anyone who wants to create motion graphics. This program is on par with After Effects and has so many great capabilities. For me the issue with Alpha exporting barely takes away from my work, because I can just import the video I want to overlay graphics on. So no matter what level you are with motion design, I can tell you that this app is for you.

Where is my clips?

I love this app! It’s the most useful editing software I ever came across of but, there are problems when it comes to cutting and splitting clips. Every while I try to cut or split a clip in a certain section, half of the clip is black and you can’t see anything. This also goes for grouping and duplicating too. The eye icon isn’t crossed and the opacity is 100. I kinda saw the same situation in another review. I hope this can get fixed soon.
Tysm for reading.

This problem mostly cleared up! I think it due to the amount of projects you have or your device storage. I will say if you have this problem just try to keep your projects down to the minimum if you can. Once again this app is really good and can be really useful! Sometimes it’s just little bugs like that, and can easily get fixed!
