Finally a Video App that Makes Video Creation Easy!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I own a social media agency that works with many small business owners with extremely limited budgets. Wave makes it possible for us to either create videos for them at a very affordable price or we train them on how to use the platform themselves. Their videos come out looking professional and they like that.

Pros

I really enjoy the ability to easily create several canvas options for all the different social platforms. It also has a very robust stock image and stock video library to pull from.

Cons

I do not like the inability to customize the watermark and the challenge to adjust the call to action option at the end of each video.

Great for this Novice

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have gotten a lot of great feedback within our company that they enjoy the videos. We are using them to highlight current employees and their personal and professional achievements. Our goal is to use this as a tool to recruit and retain great talent. As well as boost morale within our company. Although I can be frustrated with the

Pros

This interface is extremely user friendly, which I love! I like the folder function, the automatic save ability, and the theme suggestions. I love that I have the ability to upload my own font. That is huge in terms of maintaining graphic standards and raising brand awareness! I also really like the different options provided as ways to make the text interactive.

Cons

2 really big cons: 1) when I review my edits in this program, the video and audio do not always align. Often times, there is a lag of video to audio - regardless if the audio is from the video or overlay. Therefore, I cannot be sure I have the video exactly the way I want it (audio, images, text, etc.). I understand playing the video in low res while editing because of the amount of data it requires....

Best Value video marketing software

Reviewed 3 years ago

Wave has enabled me to add video creation to my social media marketing efforts for my clients without significantly increasing my costs. They are and I are very happy. The market leader’s platform has a few more “bells and whistles” but these don’t justify the significant additional expense in my opinion, and the Wave product send to be on a rapid path to add new features anyhow.

Pros

Enormous library of stock images and videos at really licence fees.

Cons

Not quite as fully featured as the leading rival - but a fraction of the cost, especially as an agency.

One of the best video editors for marketing

Reviewed 2 years ago

My favorite video-making app is Wave, because it makes making videos super easy for me. They have tons of templates and audio files that work well. No effort required to get professional videos.

Pros

While I have small knowledge in the field of Video Editing, such an application offers a great deal of great features and is super easy to learn. They offer everything you need for video marketing: - Text to video - Auto-captions - Video templates - Image and sound stock - Voiceover - Video editor and more. There are new features and improvements being launched on a weekly basis! And a change is immediately applied when a bug is detected or a problem is noticed.

Cons

None at the moment: I am very pleased with the quality and price of the product (I bought a LTD from them).

I used to work with another video platform product where I didn't have the functionality of adding certain assets to my videos.

Best Video Tool Ever!!

Reviewed a year ago

This tool is simply fantastic. I can do so much more in this video editor than I ever knew I could do because it is easy to figure out and has great templates, unlike tools I tried before (Movie Maker and PowerDirector). It also has great stock footage included (I bought 2 codes to unlock all the features) and the price for the paid stock is reasonable if you need it, but I've found such great footage in the free stuff I haven't needed to buy anything extra. This tool elevates my deliverables tenfold.

Pros

Very easy to use and get started. Intuitive interface - limited editing options but that helps make it easier to use than the pro tools. Great stock selection, good templates/layouts, makes editing, creating, and resizing videos really simple.

Cons

The text overlay feature is a little clunky but the team is regularly taking feedback and making updates. Sometimes they break things when updating... like I lost my roll-in effect but they fixed it quickly once I reported it. Could have more image editing options but what is has is decent. Could allow for 2 audio tracks to overlay - perhaps it will soon!

Hi Ren, Thank you for your detailed feedback! I will pass it to the team.

Amazing Video Creator and Keeps Getting Better

Reviewed 4 years ago

Using Wave is very easy yet with a lot of power. They have streamlined our process while allowing the creativity to be high. I run an agency that runs ads and social marketing for local businesses and Wave has been a key tool to allow us to deliver content that is engaging and delivers the businesses' unique value. With these videos we can often see a direct increase in new leads and customers when paired with targeted advertising.

Pros

I've used this tool for just over a year now and here's my thoughts: - The tool does one thing really really well - amazing online videos. - The process to create and publish on any platform is very intuitive. - It's diverse with effects, pulling together clips, and just has any feature that I need. - It makes Facebook advertising using video easy and 10x more effective. - Support is quick and helpful. I've had a few issues in the past year and they have helped or made it right if it was their fault.

Cons

Early on in use I found certain pieces limiting like audio editing, lack of effects, timeline adjustment awkwardness. In 2018 these have all been fixed and improved to where I don't find anything limiting. If I need to get in depth then I go to a full video tool like Adobe. But for online videos this tool does it all.

Wave.Video Yearly CheckIn

Reviewed 3 years ago

Benefits is time and cost saving trying to produce imagery to specifically carry out our message on social platforms.

Pros

Very intuitive in the design and abilities to edit the clips that you are working with. Like that when I'm storyboarding a project, I can "favorite" those ideas and the flow I think it could take and when I'm ready to place the clips it is easy to wade through my favorites to narrow it down for my creative.

Cons

Least is the limit on length of video that you can edit. Was looking to work with longer range videos and it would hardly load, impossible to edit, mainly because it breaks videos into :15 sec clips.

Wave Video is a mature platform with a lot of stock assets that helps you make incredible videos

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Wave Video is the most stable online video creation service that I have used. The editor is easy to use and there is no noticeable lag. I have yet to experience any issues with rendering, like I have with other video creation platforms. They have a huge amount of premium stock assets (including videos) available for free, and the ones which aren't available at no cost are very competitively priced. I like the content calendar which provides inspiration but also suggests a large number of hashtags to use for engagement when you select a template.

Cons

The templates that are available are a bit basic when compared to some of the competition. I'm sure some people like this style, but I would have liked to see some more variety in the templates.

Vendor response

Thank you, Matthew! Wow! 10 out of 10 looks amazing to me! I will pass your feedback on templates to the designers. We believe that less is more and we are trying to make it easy to edit and customize all the aspects of templates to make the final video look unique. Still, there is always room for improvement! We hear you! Kind Regards, Kate

Frustratingly Close To Great

Reviewed 4 years ago

I hoped to build videos quickly on this from the get-go as that is the value proposition here. We're not there yet. Too many companies are offering minimalist user interfaces, as clutter is taboo, but they leave VITAL editing functions (TRIM) relatively hidden, compared to the space they give Font selection. LOTS of wasted space in the GUI.

Pros

They are right on time, providing different export sizes for various social media platforms. An editor that handles 4:5 and 9:16 isn't common YET. It is a huge feature. Fairly straightforward work space.

Cons

Their scant 2 tutorials and 2 (yes just 2) FAQ's are a joke. They leave out TONS of necessary information needed to get up to speed: How to change brand colors, where in the editor is the video trimming icon? Wasted space in the GUI. Poor documentation. Tons devoted to their other software. Once I publish to one social media platform, there is no obvious way to publish to the next.. It simply says 'your video is ready'. Poor ratio of paid stock video offerings to free ones.. Same with pix. And all templates use images/video you must pay extra for, forcing you to basically remove their clips or start from scratch, which I do, negating the "ease of use" grade. Come on... If I want a paid asset, I'll turn to it, but don't force it on me..

A Must Have for Quick & Easy Video Creation

Reviewed 4 years ago

We've been taking basic (boring) blog posts and turning the main points into 30 second videos. Talk about easy and effective! The software is easy to use and pricing is so reasonable, there is no reason NOT to jump on the wave.video train. If we have some funny out-takes or just something we've done around the office, it's easy to upload that, edit/trim if needed, then add some fun extras to zip it up and really grab attention. Add our watermark, some music, then download it and get it out on social media all within an hour. And we aren't professional video/graphic designers--so that's how easy it is to use! Wave.video has made it possible for us to stay in the social media game with the easiest video creation out there.

Pros

Wave.video is easy to use. You can start with your own images or videos and blend those if needed with MILLIONS of their images and videos. Recent upgrades have added tons of "extras" for words, stickers, .gifs--they have so many fun things to take your video to the next level and really engage your audience. And you can auto resize all videos depending on social platform needs (a life saver feature, imo). Pricing is beyond reasonable.

Cons

I haven't found anything yet! I guess being patient while a video is uploading/downloading?!?

Wave.video Review

Reviewed 3 years ago

Useful to create promotional videos, allowing me to work on any computer since it is an online platform. Since it is very intuitive and fast it saves a lot of time. I really like the libraries and having access to high-quality stock content like photos, videos, and audio. If you don´t have a need for a more complex video editor, this will do the trick and allow you to speed up your work.

Pros

- Pricing is good and affordable - Allows to create nice promotional videos for social media advertising - Allows to create full HD videos - Does not require video editing experience - Nice and multiple templates - There are tutorials available - No need to install or download anything - Robust and solid libraries - High-quality free assets available - You can easily change the video size to fit several social media platforms

Cons

- Free plan is really limited - There is a learning curve, but it is not as complicated as other online editors - You cannot download videos using the free version - Text animation features are limited

Great value for spectacular prices

My experience with wave have been amazing! I’ve mainly used my own videos and images, but whenever I’ve needed to use their library I’ve always found great material! It’s super easy to use regardless if you use your own images and videos or theirs... it’s fairly easy to find music and sounds that aren’t already overused by other video makers. It has a lot of creative features

Pros

1. You’re not bound to type of video 2. Huge library with quality images and videos, both free and paid <3 3. Very dedicated team behind the program, they want you to succeed! 4. Easy to use 5. Loads of features

Cons

Wave.Video Good But Not There Yet!

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall I like using and working with the Wave.Video app, it allows me to generate quick but professional looking promo videos for my client to use on their website, social media etc. I'm hoping that the app will grow with more features and enhancements to provide more value in the near future.

Pros

Quite easy to use and generate a professional looking video very quickly. Layout and UI of the web app is clear and intuitive.

Cons

The app can be slow and laggy at times but this as improved as the app has matured over the last year. There should be more value for money as a lot of the branding option are locked into the highest paid subscription tier and there should be more choice of high quality free stock video to choose from.

A great introductory video editor for social media managers

Reviewed 4 years ago

We're able to create a consistent set of videos for our youtube and social media ads that are high quality but that also grab the attention of customers quickly. We'll definitely be making more use of it in the future.

Pros

For the price-point the number of customizable features is quite good. I like that you can upload your own logo files and re-arrange the composition of text, choose fonts, etc. I also like that there is a large free music library to use with your images.

Cons

It would be great if the animation features were more advanced so you could also animate imported graphics, not just transitions and the way the text appears and disappears. There were sometimes a few bugs as well, which caused some stalls in my work but they seemed to be worked out by the team quickly.

Amazing Video Creation Tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

My overall experience is very positive. I highly recommend this tool.

Pros

Wave.video offers everything that you might need for creating a video. I mostly use it for social network videos. For this function everything is just perfect. The price is great. The tool doesn't fail to deliver. It works great. It has a library of free stock videos and pictures. I wouldn't say it's perfect because most of the time I can't find the stuff I need in the free library, but the great thing is that you can upload your own content.

Cons

It can be very slow and freezes a lot too. That's the main con about this tool. Also poor stock library. You will probably have to provide your own stock footage or purchase one of the paid ones.

Vendor response

Thanks for the Kind words Tigran, We are very glad that you find value in our offering. I am happy to notify you that we will soon dramatically increase the free stock offering (YAY), that will help a lot. Also, we would love to know more about your freezing problem, could you please email our support team with details? If there is a bug, we want to fix it! Kindly yours, Daniel.

The immediate video pricing coming straight out of the bank account. Especially when a team member adds a paid video accidentally. The fact you can't scroll through the video clip whilst trimming. You can't move the playhead. And for a video editing software - it's really important to be able to move the playhead back and forth on the clip, especially for clips that are about 10 mins in length.

Review by one of the WaveVideoADay Contributors

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall the experience is good and I'm confident I can create quickly my own videos to promote my business.

Pros

I bought the Agency version at half the price via Mari Smith's affiliate link. There's a lot to like with this software, particular, the growing number of templates available to edit for your own custom videos. It's easy to use and creating videos with clips, images and audio is quick. Sizing the videos to fit different social media platforms was simple and the calendar of daily ideas to help you work out what to post is a great help.

Cons

What I think could be improved is 1. Ability to click on a text link, hashtag, image or watermark logo in the video 2. Adding another image side by side to an existing one , and 3. The ability to trim clips within an audio instead of the workaround of duplicating audio clips and trimming from the beginning or end until you get the segment you want to add
