Easy to use to create professional looked video

2018-03-16

Create a professional looking video, without any video editing skill.

Pros

I can create a professional looked video, to promote my mobile app, with just drag-n-drop. The ready-to-used mobile app toolkit templates are great.

Cons

The mobile app toolkit only comes with 2 mobile phones choice - A white iPhone and a dark green Samsung.

Renderforest is extremely easy to use and i've made a number of great videos on it.

2018-07-05

I think having an online video making tool is the future and so far my experience has been great

Pros

It was easy to use, easy themes, music works and I can access it online.

Cons

For infrequent content creators, the subscription is certainly expensive, but if you need frequent videos then i think its substantiated.

Easy, Simple and Quick

2019-02-03

I have used Renderforest for 6 months in my Master studies, I have never made Videos before that but it really made that easier for me, and allow me to present a very good Seminars and deliver my idea in a very nice way.

Pros

It has thousands of templates even when you are using the free version. Very helpful for students which they have presentations and they want to present them in a very good way.

Cons

The Amateur plan is enough if you are a student but it will be better if you could be able to export more than 5 videos, cause sometimes you might export one and then discover that you make a small typo and you have to export it again and lose "one export".

Great video editing software - all online as well!

2018-07-09

All online and very easy to use, has a great tutorial

Pros

I highly recommend you get on that free trial first and see if you like it because it saved me a huge some of money having a third party do this for me on a few of our video projects...

Cons

I really did not experience any issues with this product, it did most of the work for you and did not take up any space on my computer to download it like most products out there.

Good video solutions for your business

2018-10-03

Overall I've enjoyed the software and will continue to use when the needs are there.

Pros

I like the amount of options and content available to create unique video content.

Cons

Even though it's a free package to only allow 360p exports is far to low of a quality to offer.
