Pros: At first I was disappointed with the simplicity of the software, but Wave has recently (summer 2018) added features that make it a lot more flexible, including:

1. voiceover capability

2. more flexible text positioning

3. additional text transitions

4. smooth borders for text

5. colored backgrounds, including tints for videos

I've always liked the color schemes in Wave, and the ability to choose from a variety of contrasting color options to back smaller images. The images, videos and music in the library are extensive and generally of high quality. The ability to quite quickly change the format (size) of the videos is very useful.

Cons: I've used both the free version and a subscription. The free version has a watermark on all the videos. It would be nice to be allowed say one video per month that isn't watermarked, or put the watermark/Wave logo at the end instead of it running throughout the video, which is very intrusive.

I can't find anything I don't like about the subscription service. All of the limitations that irked me when I started using Wave (like not being able to do a voice-over) have been resolved. I am looking forward to further improvements.

Overall: Wave allows us to quickly produce high quality videos to promote our online courses and to prepare tutorials for learners and faculty members. As a small and growing non-profit organization with just a few part-time staff, we don't have the resources to pay a professional videographer. The ease and flexibility of Wave allows us to save on marketing while we grow our customer-base and develop the administrative systems we need to expand exponentially.

Pros: I used to work with another video platform product where I didn't have the functionality of adding certain assets to my videos. Mostly I work with video platforms for Facebook/Insta or social selling videos so it was critical for me to use my own VO options or license safely with graphics that would help get to the pain point and solution of my products fast. Wave did this as they keep adding new features...one that I love is small gifs or animations such as pointing hands or smiley faces that warm the video up well but also get very specific of where a customer should look or click. The more you use Wave the easier it is because you know what works and what doesn't. They also have a great feature to zoom in/out with your video in certain areas to showcase something you know consumers can't live without. THere's also a great transition option from "shot to shot" as you can add pictures to videos as well. Very nice robust platform. Oh, you can increase the speed of the video you uploaded too which is super fun if you have a longer demo but want to speed it up to the eye. It's fun to watch and build. The best part, the price. My agency loves this product and I only stumbled upon it because I saw a cool video and asked how it was made. Nice that a novice agency owner can use it and not have to hire out on things I want to do fast especially for social media.

Cons: Once you upload a pic or video, you can't erase it. They are looking into this.

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.

Overall: 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: Unlike many of the other systems, everything about the fonts - type, size, color, position (and time placement and delay of the second line), animations, color and opacity of text background, even drop shadow - completely customizable. It puts no limit on the number of videos you can create and download, nor the number of clips that each video can use. It comes with stock footage, and it has a real preview function where you see changes as you do them. Also unlike many of the other systems, you can insert, delete, change length, crop, rotate & re-arrange clips, and add transitions between clips.

Cons: While it does have good pre-built templates, I'd like to see a great many more (like some other systems provide). Also, changing text color is unnecessarily complex and seemingly inconsistent, involving have to make changes to a "Brand" section, instead of just selecting the text and dragging through a color rainbow circle. I'd like to be able to use Wave.video with my teams. Layering images could be easier (right now it involves a workaround of using the logo part of the CTA module to do it).

Overall: Overall, it's a pleasure to use, with a very nice interface, and it makes video creation very easy and very fast.

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..

Overall: 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: The best thing about Wave is the fact that you can with just one click reformat a video into any platform. If you needed for a version for YouTube but then also wanted to get a square version for Instagram you can do this in literally just one click. The other feature that we have used is the text feature. Wave makes it pretty easy to add text to your video clips and then arrange them where you want them to be. They also provide some advanced features like being able to add a transition to your text. Overall we love using Wave for our agency and it has been a huge help for us specifically with marketing videos as it makes it easy.

Cons: There are some features that Wave is still missing and thus it is still not able to fully take the place of needing a video editor in many cases. You can only trim a clip in .5 second increments which means if you needed to trim a clip below .5 seconds then you would have to do this outside of Wave and then import it back in. The other key feature that we have found missing is the ability to jump anywhere on the timeline. If I make a change to one small part towards the end of the clip, I literally have to watch the entire clip from the beginning just to watch that part. Wave also lacks a lot when it comes to audio. You can fade in and fade out but other things like splitting an audio clip to add an additional track is not possible.

Overall: Overall, Wave is a fantastic platform with a lot of amazing features! It is the best cloud based video marketing editor we have found and we do love using it!

Pros: You can format the sizes of the video or photo to fit different screen sizes. For example, I use it to create content for social media websites such as Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. What's also nice is that you can use your brand colours by inserting the hex numbers into the color palate, so that it's easy to create.

Cons: It takes some time to figure out how to update the colours of the text when you want to have more options. The tutorial is great for a basic introduction, but would appreciate it a more detailed and clearly labelled way to find out about the features.

Overall: I have been very happy overall as I can use their library of stock images, videos and audio clips to format and create my content for social media. It's a great resource as it's all in one place, so you don't waste time dragging and dropping across multiple screens or open windows.

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?!?

Overall: 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: What I really liked about Wave is the ready made templates. Recently they introduced the Calendar which makes it easier to publish videos 365 days in a year! My husband and I love making videos on the fly using Wave.

Cons: Maybe the least liked about Wave is that sometimes it is so slow to Render the project. We got the Pro plan from a social deal and at times, it really takes time to render the video.

Overall: My final recommendation of Wave is that it is a very solid product and Digital marketers / business owners would love to subscribe to its service. I do hope they make it accessible on mobile so it will be a sure winner for everyone. Mobile first!

Pros: I love the templates - they are beautiful. I also like the fact that you can add your brand logos and pantones into presets, which makes creating videos a smother, faster process. I like the wide range of soundtracks, which are easy to find and play before you add them to the videos.

Cons: I wish it was easier to edit the musical sound tracks. It would be helpful if you could choose at which point in the music your video starts on.

I think there should be more features to edit and tweak the videos as well. Right now, the functions are a little limited.

I also think there need to be more quality, free stock archives. Some of the catagories don't have any free stock video. If you are a small time marketer with just a few clients, you are already paying quite a lot for the monthly privilege of using Wave. I like it, I really do. But I think it could be even better.

Overall: I've made several videos already for social media clients - they have been very happy with the results and I'm happy because this is an application that really saves me some time, but also allows me to create some seriously good videos for marketing purposes.

Pros: I love that I can choose several formats for all social media outlets. Having all my photos in a file for a particular subject is great, I can make several videos to promote my clients using assets that I only have to upload once.

Cons: I do wish that I could have slide less than 30 seconds. I would like the ability to control how many seconds - even to do a stop-motion short video. Then I wouldnt have to use other software.

Overall: I love how quickly and how helpful my customer service guy that answers my questions.

Pros: I love how easy it is to use Wave.. it's almost a step by step process every single time. You can make a video custom-sized to any social media platform, change the colors of the animations to suit your brand, and of course, add your text or sticker or transition animation.

I especially love how many commercially free videos and movie clips there are available for me to choose from, and I like how my logo can be shown so seamlessly at the end of the video.

Cons: I dislike that you can't control the sound volume of audio clips and that you can't play videos that you've made from any point in the timeline. I've had to export clips from Wave into iMovie to solve this problem.

It's also a little more rigid than I would like, the flexibility isn't quite there yet. I would also love the option of adding text bars to the top and bottom of a widescreen video.

Overall: Great! Happy to have it!

Pros: Wave has the most intuitive software online to create videos. I love the way the you can upload pics or videos and then still use things from the library. I can change everything within the video form aspect ratio to a color filter I can add on top of it. Its very easy to use.

Text overlays-

This option is amazing, I can pick my font, where i want it (by dragging and dropping) and when it comes on the screen.

Adding Videos-

It was as easy as clickingh add or going to upload then trimming by sliding the bar from left to right to indicate how much of it I wanted.

Cons: I wish it had a wider selection of videos.

Overall: It has been amazing

Pros: It really is easy to use. I am not internet/computer savvy and I am finally getting the use of my hands back so clearly not on the same playing field as other advertisers, but even I am able to do it! I like that support is available to assist and it's not someone emailing me. Truly a game changer for the advertiser/marketer of today.

Cons: 1) Music. Everyone's taste in music is different and the pieces there may not coincide with personal likes. I personally do not use the music anymore. 2) I am 'under' our business leader and when there are upgrades, new options Confusing as to whether they apply to me or not 3) sometimes difficult locating a specific video to use

Overall: I am not too 'computer savvy', so I still have issues where things aren't looking right. I have had to call/chat sometimes several times with the same issue, but the support is patient and goes over it with me. Having this program enables me to be right in there with the other marketers/advertisers (since videos are the thing now). It allows me to step up my advertising on different platforms. to use professional videos THANK YOU

Pros: 1. The inbuilt templates for various social media platforms.

2. The access to vast number of stock images and video clips.

3. Access to curated music clips for the videos.

4. The vast options for text fonts.

Cons: 1. The inability to fit in frames (images or clips) directly in between frames.

2. The options for dynamic effects for texts is minimal.

Overall: Wave.video is a great tool for those looking to start off with making videos for social media platforms, educational projects, work related projects and so on. One does not need any prior knowledge of video editing or production to use this simple drag and drop tool to make great dynamic videos for a variety of topics.

I have been using the basic plan for over a month now as I started off with the youtube project for the company I work at and I must say that it has been a breeze so far. I have put in a minimal amount of effort in making the videos while the end results have been way above my own expectations.

I would definitely recommend this to those who are looking for an affordable online video editing tool.

Pros: It's a video creation app that has a specific focus, social media videos. It has just enough features to get the job done but not overly complicated to use. If you make videos for Facebook, Instagram, etc, then this is a really easy way to create your own custom videos. They also have a nice library of stock videos you can use for free as well as inexpensive ones you can purchase.

Cons: Sometimes the editing options can restrict what you can do with the video, which is fine most of the time but may frustrate some video makes who want total control over their videos, in which case they want to look at a full feature video editing solution.

Overall: Very good. Creating simple videos for social media used to take hours, not we can create them in about 20 minutes using Wave.

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. Furthermore, I am consistently streaming 90 Mbps through our internet provider directly to my computer, so I don't think it is a matter of low internet speed. 2) I cannot use more than 1 audio line at a time. For example, if I have a picture that I want to overlay music and voice with, that isn't possible. That's a huge drawback.

I also have one small drawback: I don't like that I am limited on text color. For example, unlike being able to upload multiple fonts, I am very limited on color scheme and the presentation of themes (although I do like the few options I am offered).

Overall: 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: Lots of stock footage to choose from. Also, the software is easy to use and to navigate. A beginner can easily get started and make his own captions, subtitles, transitions to make a video with an end result as if done by a professional.

Cons: Although there are lots of stock footage to choose from, these are mostly generic. If you are in a highly niched field or making a specific-topic video, often times you would struggle to find free resources for your project.

Also, (but understandably so), the editing is not as dynamic as you would get if you were editing using something such as Adobe premiere. However, Wave is great for social media projects or quick videos. Really great quality.

Pros: Super simple to create great looking, perfectly formatted videos quickly. We can take a concept idea to online fast! And when mocking up ideas for big production concepts, it's easy to create without getting into heavy production before a client is ready to move on it.

Cons: There are few limitations, it's more about managing your expectations of what you have the tool to do - what it is and isn't built for. Can be a little slow when "ripping" the new video for download, but that could just be the impatient person in me talking.

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.

Overall: 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.

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.

Overall: 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: It has many options in terms of free videos, images and music. You can create a brand in your account to align the font and branding to all your videos.

Cons: You can't upload your own videos.

When you create instastories it exports the whole video it does not give you the option to export in 15 seconds parts.

Overall: I love wave it's easy and simple to use. I Highly recommend it.

Pros: It's very easy to use. I love the resources library, and the templates. Also the fact that it has different publishing formats like square or a dedicated format for Instagram stories!!! I think that's one of the big features, because stories are going strong for us marketers.

Cons: Probably the pricing, but I manages to get a great deal for an annual plan with a 70% discount!!

Overall: I use wave for my Facebook page video, and to produce informational videos. It's easy, very intuitive platform, and the quality is amazing. I love WAVE!

Pros: I LOVE how quick and easy this software is. Because EVERYTHING is included (free and paid stock video clips, music, typography, logos, etc.) I can literally make a video in MINUTES!

Cons: The BIGGEST drawback, and the single factor that keeps me from saying that Wave.video is LITERALLY the ONLY social video editing tool you'll EVER need, is the way they handle logos / transparent graphics.

Currently, you can add your logo as a Watermark, but this will show on EVERY screen. If you want to include more than one logo (i.e. use a different image on different screens, etc.) there isn't a way (at least not that I've found).

There needs to be a transparent image option added into the edit section (make it function as a layer that you can choose how/when to transition in, just like you can do with typography).

If Wave.video ever does this, their tool will be a GAME CHANGER!

Overall: I purchased my Wave.video subscription because I was under the gun... I had a trade show looming (within just a week or two), and I needed to create two different videos (one for JUST my brand, and one that looped in two other brands who were including products in our booth). And BOTH videos needed to be able to show on a 16:9 TV monitor, a 9:16 touchscreen, and scaled for various social networks.

With Wave.video I created (and resized) my videos in no time. The show - and the videos - were a huge success!

We now plan to use this tool for all of our trade show videos, as well as for future social media video needs.

Pros: I'm a total non creative. But I find it easy to create videos from all the assets in the Wave library, and to make them look professional and compelling.

Cons: Restricted placement of text overlays on the video. Would love to drag and drop the text into an exact position rather than pre-set placements.

Overall: I'm using Wave to create video posts for social, as well as high converting Facebook video ads. Find it easy to create them without complicated editing or having to shoot my own video. Good value for money if using it regularly.

Pros: The hardest part of creating video for me isn't the editing, but finding the right footage to use. The stock footage integration has been a game-changer, giving my team what we need to produce awesome content for social media.

Cons: Still relatively new, the editing process can be a little buggy. It has vastly improved in the year that I have been using it, but I still sometimes encounter small challenges when trying to customize clip timing, adding text, and previewing.

Pros: My favourite feature is the one to change sizes. For example: you can create a project and work on a video for FB in a specific size and then just change the size tapping on Instagram size. You may have to make a little bit of arrangement of the objects. But in less than 5 minutes you will have a video repurposed for another platform. You can make you video fit different sizes and platforms in a blink of an eye. Extremly helpful for social media.

Cons: When adding you watermark, this one will stay in the same place the whole video. It is a problem when you add at the end of your video the logo of your brand a call to action, since your logo will be repeated in the call to action and as a watermark at the same time. I would love to see the option to delete the watermark when the call to action appears.

Overall: It has made my work much easier. It is really simple to understand but at the same time, it gives amazing results. Always a professional look for all the platforms we work with.

I love wave.video!

Pros: How easy it was to use. All the text transitions that are pre-loaded would have taken hours to implement in a typical video editor.

Cons: I wish there were animation options for logos and uploaded graphics.

Overall: We use wave.video every day and have seen a 70% increase in our FB engagement sense we started ramping up our social media videos. We are able to compete on social media with companies in our industry 4 times bigger than us! We are so happy with the product that we switched from a monthly payment plan and bought our year subscription. As a creative myself, I enjoy the fun videos I get to make so quickly. I am just so pleased with the way wave.video has helped our marketing department grow on social.

Pros: It's super easy to use. Even the most non-technical person could use it.

Cons: Nothing really. It might be nice to be able to upload our own videos.

Overall: Our business needed to bust out a lot of videos on social media as we knew Facebook gave favor to videos. However we didn't want to hire an expensive videographer to make them or even hire someone specifically to make them. We needed a cost effective and quick option that was easy and that everyone on the staff could easily use. Wave Video was our solution to our need!

Pros: I have used 5 to 6 video making tools so far, I found wave.video easy to use . They have provided standard templates and calender to get started. I was able to make 5 to 6 videos in just 4 days for social media marketing

Cons: stock images and videos shown in search result are not as per expectations. Quality of search for stock photo and images can be improved as it takes some time to find suitable image or video for video contents. Bu default it shows paid images and videos and my preference is not saved if I need only free stock image or video. each time I need to manually select it

Pros: That it's easy to use. That you are updating frequently.

Cons: 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.

Overall: it's great having video content going out. Glad you have now added more templates. Keep adding more of these! And update the editing features on the software also please.

Pros: I love how it automatically resizes videos for different social media formats. It's completely focused on social media videos. We're able to take one video and quickly repurpose it for every channel

Cons: There aren't enough templates that fit my needs (facebook ads)

Overall: Very simple to use, we got up and running within a few minutes. Overall it's saved us a ton of time with our ad creation and the restraints actually force us to focus and not get too fancy.

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

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

Pros: This video allows me to quickly deploy video for new products and events using a combination of stock and existing footage. I can launch campaigns much faster now, and then refind later with my videographer, instead of having to schedule a project with him from the start.

Cons: Editing interface can be improved. Its allready very good, but the experience of editing on the web will never quite match editing in a dedicated application.

Overall: Happy I found these guys at marketing conference. Would definitely reccomend to anyone who needs to rapidly deploy marketing videos

Pros: This software is easy to use and easy to customize. Once we got our brand built out, creating fresh content was lightning fast!

Cons: There's no option to roll it out to a team, like other video platforms offer. We really need the ability to have an admin manage multiple team members so we can control the brand and keep up with the content that is getting created on a daily basis.

Overall: Customer service is a bit slow to respond to questions. They do seem open to our opinions and needs. We'll continue to test out this new software and see if they evolve in a way that helps us support our business.

Pros: I absolutely LOVE the ease of use and the pack of text effects that come out of the box. Also, the way the platform handles text input is also VERY adaptive and easy.

Cons: The currently poor timeline. Only being able to work in steps of 0,5s isn't always nice, and having only one track for video and 1~2 tracks for audio is veery limiting.

Overall: It is an amazing SaaS that is helping my company empower a lot of employees and is making us generate a lot more fast videos for our business every month. Their support is also excelent, and they take at MOST 24~36h to answer every little thing I say.

Learning of this software is almost zero which makes even a novice edit or create videos in minutes. The most value for money software and better than any other expensive software available.

Cons: I wish there are more elements and need some more customization options for texts

Overall: Making simple videos is just so easy for anyone using this software, this is very good for making social media videos.

Pros: I love how easy it is to use and the multitudes of photos, graphics, gifs, etc. that are available to use for creation.

Cons: The general bugginess. It tends to have issues when condensing videos either in preview or even after downloading, though typically it does work after a few tries. Also I find it ridiculous that what amounts to video editing service doesn't have the ability to start from the middle of the video. If the software can handle videos up to 15 minutes or whatever it is then you have to have the capability to start from anywhere. Even editing my 3 minute video was a massive pain because of having to play and wait the length of the video every time I made a change just to see what edits near the end look like in the final product.

Overall: I've been able to make promotional videos and basic video editing that is saving us some headaches with buying more expensive software when this handles it just fine.

Pros: fairly easy to create a variety of sizes and formats

Cons: overall editing of clips is very very time consuming. it takes a lot of time and patience to properly format text, timing and you can't really overlap assets with layers other than text over image or text over video.

Overall: decent for quick drafts but not dependable to have all different sizes produced with quality from the one-click to produce button as text etc gets cut off or wraps poorly.

Pros: We are a professional video production company, often too busy to stop client projects to do our own marketing videos! Wave makes it easy for us to create professional quality video for social media. We honestly can only accept the highest production values, as for us, it's not just marketing but reflective of our work overall, and wave meets all those requirement for us.

Cons: The cost for stock video adds up quickly. I wish there were more cost-effective - and better - video clips available.

Great for a small marketing team!

Pros: Wave.video is very easy to use, especially for someone who has limited experience with video. It's helped us make the TV screens we have in our business more interesting and less static.

Cons: I understand why it's part of the software, but I wish it was an option to remove the logo/call-to-action from the end of videos. We simply do not need a call to action or logo at the end of all of our videos, as some of our content is simply meant to make people "feel good" when they walk into our business.

Pros: This company has put some serious thought into creating a program that offers users the features and flexibility they want. Frankly, it's fantastic. You can customize everything from the dimensions of your video to the font style and transitions.

Cons: While the program is feature-rich, this often comes at the cost of website load times and learning curve. These limitations are overcome though! Additionally, I would like to see more effort into the graphic design department. They certainly aren't at the top of their game when it comes to templates. Also, there is obviously a watermark unless you pay a fee, most of which are relatively high.

Overall: Overall experience was great!
