My Experience with FlexClip
Traditional video editing is a time-consuming task. You need to download music, photos, fonts, and video clips before you start. But with FlexClip, I found that I can skip all those process making it easy and simple to create a professional-looking video.
It has tons of templates to choose from which you can use as a guide in creating your own video. In my experience, I wanted to create a business proposal, and I found useful video templates that are useful as all I need to do is to edit some text and include photos if I need to.
Videos and photos are present in their library. All you need to do is to input a search term that describes the video clip or photo that you need to include on your final video.
However, their video clips and photos are limited and may not reach your expectation. I say so because there are times when I searched for a specific content, and I found that there is a common actor in the clips I saw. Meanwhile, I found the rest of the clips quite boring.
In the end, after browsing through many pages in their media library, I found a few clips and pictures that suited my criteria. Although the photo and video clip collections are large, it lacks variety. I’m hoping for additional videos to be added in the future.
There are several fonts to choose from as well. However, it’s not as many as you’d expect. So, if you’re looking for the best font that fits the theme of your video, chances are you will need to upload it to use it. But, the good news is that there are “overlays” template that is available for use.
When editing a portrait in FlexClip, you can use backgrounds that are already in the tool. There are a number of categories to filter all the selections so you can easily find the one that you’re looking for.
A selection of music is also available in their media library. I found it helpful that I can choose a different genre of music that will best fit the video that I’m making. However, it seems to lack an auto-transcript or text-to-speech feature.
Good points I observed (Pros of FlexClip)
- Easy to use as it has a simple options
- Tons of templates that are good for beginners
- Can upload photos, videos, and own fonts
- A wide variety of music to choose from with multiple genres available
- Presets for Text Animation (Quotes, Comic, Bubbles, Lower Thirds, etc.)
- Good elements editing (group/ungroup, alignment/position, layers, motion, text-align, text-spacing, text-line, height, bold, italic)
Rooms for improvement
- No section for voice-over
- Can’t lock the layers when editing
- Can’t organize audio and video uploads as there are no folders and subfolders
- In Timeline mode, there are no options to add stock audio/video/graphic. The preset for the Text animation is not as many as in Storyboard mode.
- Uploading long videos is time-consuming
- Saving/processing the final output loads slow
Overall, FlexClip is a useful tool, especially for beginners because of its user-friendliness and good features.
It’s best for people who usually do quick advertisements as FlexClip provides an easy way to edit videos because of its library of stock photos, videos, music, and fonts that are made accessible to the user. It will save you time searching and downloading the right assets that will fit your desired output.
If you’re a person who usually does edits for more than an hour, I can say that this will test your patience as saving the final output is really time-consuming.
Overall, I rate it as 4/5 due to other good features such as the folders and subfolders for files, layers when editing, and more.
Auto transcript, and text-to-speech option are features that need to be considered in future updates.
If you’re a person who loves to create professional-looking videos, then you better try out FlexClip!
