It's minecraft ,

Love this app but this glitch is holding me back

I just recently started using this app because I wanted to get into video editing. When I started using it everything was great and there were no glitches (or so it seemed). After a while I got to the point where I needed to add text to one of my videos and that’s when it happened. Every time I attempt to add text to my video, instead of it showing the message I want it to say, it says “<LOADING>”. I simply cannot figure out why it’s been doing this and it doesn’t seem like anyone else has encountered this problem. No matter how many times I delete the app and install it once more or edit the text it doesn’t work. I should mention that it occurs on every single edit I have tried to add text too. Other than this the app has been great. I even went as far as too pay for and remove the watermark. I would still like to know how to add text to my video though :/

All is great except...

I love this app, and would 100% recommend to anyone considering it, but lately I’ve been having some issues. I’m having problems with my cursor and elements. It’s been happening for a while, but it’s just now starting to get on my nerves.

I have my “show cursor” settings on, and it was fine at first, but now it will stamp itself in place on my screen and stay there until I close out the app. It’s hard for me to explain, but imagine having two cursors on your screen. There is one that is stuck in place, and the other one that is fine and showing your taps (like it should)

Second, after the latest update, I’ve been having issues with my element’s text. When you have an element that mainly consists of text, it will let you do a simple text edit when brought into a project. My issue is that when I add an element (with the simple text edit) into my project, make the changes I want, and exit out of the project, it doesn't save. When I go back in the project, the element text is set back to its default. It’s hard for me to explain, but I hope that these things can be fixed soon!!!!

Problems With Loading

I’ve seen this app everywhere. I started out with Video Star, and wanted to get into Alight Motion. I got the app, and editing with this app was really easy! I loved it and I kept editing. But every time I would go to import, it wouldn’t let me. It would be stuck on the loading screen. So I had to screen record so that I could show it to my friends. Earlier this week, I decided that I would buy the Premium Pass. I went to my profile, and it showed the “Premium Options” (or whatever it says). I went to click on it, and, it went away, with a loading screen. I waited, and it never came. I logged out, logged back in, and it didn’t work. So I decided to go into a project, go to a premium effect, and press the “Premium Option” feature. Again, it got stuck in a loading screen. So I tried again. It didn’t show a loading screen this time! But, sadly, it would not let me click anything. I kept pressing continue, I tried seeing if it would switch to monthly if I clicked it, but no use. I really love this app and would love to support you guys with the premium membership!
