(Sorry I wrote a review before but there’s one little problem still).

Everything is going great here! I love the new update as well. Although there’s a slight problem here. Whenever I want to use a preset and import it to my AM, the entire app crashes itself out once it reached to 100% and never saved it. Not sure if this is normal or not, but it’s kind of irritating haha. Although this is such a great app! Little watermark at the bottom is the best idea. This is officially my favorite editing app in iOS.

Thank you so much for using Alight Motion! We absolutely support sharing on YouTube. First, make sure you have selected video (not Project Package, GIF, or any of the other formats) when exporting the video. After exporting, if you scroll down (by swiping upward), there should be an option to save to your camera roll. If you want to share directly to YouTube, you need to have the YouTube app installed. If you do, swipe left in the list of apps after exporting and you should see YouTube (you might need to click the ••• icon). If that doesn't help, please contact our support team at — YouTube sharing works on all our test phones, but it's entirely possible we might have a mistake affecting some users. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated in helping us find it. Once again, thank you so much for using Alight Motion, and we're very sorry for any inconvenience.

A new bug maybe?

So I was trying to work on an edit on Alight Motion and when I got to at least 10 seconds into listening to the audio clip it would close out. I thought that it may just be a glitch so I tried it again a few more times and the same thing happened. Then I thought it could be because of my storage and I deleted a few photos and the same thing still happened. I’m sorry to complain but I would like it if you could check this out and try to fix it. Alight Motion is one of the best editing sites I’ve used so far so it would be really helpful for me. Thank you. Edit: okay so I made a new project and it started working so no bug!

From my experience with the app, its really good. Its almost similar to Sony Vegas & After Effects. The things I would like to see in the future is Time Remapping ( allowing you to place keyframes with for different speed values ) and also I noticed that app uses a lot of storage. I was editing a video once and for some reason it using 15-20 GB of storage. I even deleted the project file to see if it would fix it but its still the same. Overall, the app is very beautiful and easy to use. I would definitely recommend this to my friends who are looking to get into video editing.
