Review: FlexClip Video Maker

Candy, Partnership Manager from Pearl Mountain, asked me several weeks ago to take a look at FlexClip, their new video product.

I'm always interested in video apps because video is a great way to bring exposure to an author, book, or other product.

Since I've been out of the office a lot this year, it's taken me a while to follow through on her request.

Today, I finally tested FlexClip and decided it's definitely a website I want to review and share with SlingWords Readers.

Getting Started

For most websites I'm asked to review, I check to see if there are tutorials. FlexClip has a very clear presentation for their tutorial.

The next thing I do is try to use the product without going through the tutorial. I want to know if the way it works is intuitive to a user, or is it so complicated one must go through the lessons first.

I do this because I know most people go straight to the app rather than read instructions.

It's just human nature that everyone wants to dive in and get started rather than "waste" time reading instructions.

I'm happy to say FlexClip is fairly intuitive. I created a 21 second video just by clicking on the storyboard image, mousing over options, etc. When I completed this short promotion video for SlingWords, I exported it.

Rather than exporting it to YouTube, which would have been very convenient, export actually means "download it to the user's computer." Not really a problem, just an extra step. I did export in 480, 720, and 1080 formats.
