User Reviews for Alight Motion

Access Premium Features

I recently just downloaded the app and so far, it seems like an awesome editing app for the iPad. My gripe with this app is that I can’t access certain features because you have to pay a monthly or yearly membership, and I don’t have any money in my account. I just wish there was a way for us to access the premium features with out paying the membership for a certain amount of time like having a lifetime payment, or even watching a 30 second ad (just like ibisPaint). Some people have said the before the update, everyone was able to access all the features before the update came, where the membership was now required and many people have complained about the situation. There was also an event that had all the features on this app to be used by those who didn’t pay the membership that I missed.So, that’s why I’m putting a 4-star review. I wish there was a way we can access the premium features for a certain amount of time or just pay for it for one time. Hope you guys are okay with the review

Worst app I’ve downloaded.

The features in this app are amazing, and what the app can do is stunning, but there’s a HUGE problem, the app is SUPER SUPER laggy and slow, and it ALWAYS crashes after just a few minutes of using it, And when it gets to a point where it crashes so much from you trying to save your work, it just CRASHES YOUR ENTIRE DEVICE this app is garbage and their is absolutely NO point of downloading the app. I’ve lost SO MUCH TIME AND EFFORT on this app it’s disgusting. Please don’t download this if you ACTUALLY WANT TO MAKE GOOD WORK AND ACTUALLY HAVE IT SAVE. And this is not just my problem, it’s MULTIPLE others problems too, it’s why the app has 4 stars, when someone has this same problem they just say “contact us here ________” They are doing nothing to actually fix this, and it’s disgusting. By far the worst app I’ve ever downloaded, please don’t download this, this DOES NOT deserve 4 stars. Don’t just take away 1 Star because of this problem this problem is HUGE and the app is pointless because of it. Thanks for reading, and thanks for doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to fix this Alight Motion.

Problems With Loading

I’ve seen this app everywhere. I started out with Video Star, and wanted to get into Alight Motion. I got the app, and editing with this app was really easy! I loved it and I kept editing. But every time I would go to import, it wouldn’t let me. It would be stuck on the loading screen. So I had to screen record so that I could show it to my friends. Earlier this week, I decided that I would buy the Premium Pass. I went to my profile, and it showed the “Premium Options” (or whatever it says). I went to click on it, and, it went away, with a loading screen. I waited, and it never came. I logged out, logged back in, and it didn’t work. So I decided to go into a project, go to a premium effect, and press the “Premium Option” feature. Again, it got stuck in a loading screen. So I tried again. It didn’t show a loading screen this time! But, sadly, it would not let me click anything. I kept pressing continue, I tried seeing if it would switch to monthly if I clicked it, but no use. I really love this app and would love to support you guys with the premium membership!

No bugs!!! Except...

Okay. To be completely honest, this is the best app I have ever decided to download. The interface was really easy to pick up and with the new update I had none of the bugs mentioned in previous reviews. The only issue that I have is when I export footage with alpha transparency. I keep choosing the HEVC codec and choosing export, but after the loading bar appears no saving option shows up. The program stalls, and after a few seconds, crashes. I hope that this bug will be fixed in later versions, but I would still strongly recommend this app to anyone who wants to create motion graphics. This program is on par with After Effects and has so many great capabilities. For me the issue with Alpha exporting barely takes away from my work, because I can just import the video I want to overlay graphics on. So no matter what level you are with motion design, I can tell you that this app is for you.

It’s a good app kinda

The apps not bad but like the free version you can do a lot of stuff with it and you can make some pretty cool edits but now when the update came most of the stuff like the effects or all you had to have premium like a membership so I had this edit I made and I didn’t get the Membership yet I was planning on getting it but not anytime soon so my edits were all based on free affects so I made the saber effect for one of my edits but now I can’t export the edit because it’s changed to membership so I’m not able to download it to my photos because I’m broke and sometimes the thing like glitches a lot and it just closes you out of the app which is pretty annoying every time I make a long edit it’s always closing me out of the app and the fact that I use are like the wave ones the way the facts and like all of them are for memberships so I can’t I are used to use that affect all the time but now I can’t use it anymore because the membership and stuff not saying that should be like there should be no membership because the app itself and going on like the free you can make some pretty cool edits with it which is why I gave it like four stars so that’s not bad but like now the times all the effect are all for membership and I don’t have that 😗✌️

Alight Motion is not great to use anymore

The alight Motion app will no longer be my favorite because when I messed up alight Motion, it starts to crash so I had to delete it and delete all of the unneeded apps. Sorry that it keeps crashing every day :( so I’m deleting it forever. The only way I can use to video edit perfectly is not using the camera for the project. All I have to do is just stay where the project has layers in them. I’d rather use KineMaster, but not on iOS. That’s the only app I’d use on my Samsung tablet instead. Oh my! No explosion is needed: When I tried to replace the layer, the replacement won’t work! I had to close the project and reopen it again, but the problem is that the project was completely empty and the aspect ratio won’t go to 16:9. And then I would get out of the app! I had to open it again. I tried to replace and edit the layers a lot of times once I copied my project. I tried to do that but the reasons is that the layer would disappear. The only layer that stops controlling with the size is the reason that it would not stretch correctly to -60 stretch axis. Then something weird, it shrunk.

I’m on the verge of uninstalling this

This app is useful. It gets the work done. Just, extremely inefficiently. It’s full of glitches, including but not limited to: The video player displaying a white screen when pressing play. - Everything but the video freezes when pressing play, forcing you to close the app. - When you group layers, they get blurry. - When you use the “Copy background” effect, any effects put on the layer beforehand won’t be applied to the background. - And last but not least, everyone’s favorite: The app crashes when you preform certain tasks too fast. It depends on how much is in your video, but I’ve gotten to the point in a project where the app will crash if I press anything. Literally anything. The app may have a lot of useful features, but it lacks good performance, which is one of the most important things. I’m on the verge of uninstalling this app. Please fix these problems.

All is great except...

I love this app, and would 100% recommend to anyone considering it, but lately I’ve been having some issues. I’m having problems with my cursor and elements. It’s been happening for a while, but it’s just now starting to get on my nerves. I have my “show cursor” settings on, and it was fine at first, but now it will stamp itself in place on my screen and stay there until I close out the app. It’s hard for me to explain, but imagine having two cursors on your screen. There is one that is stuck in place, and the other one that is fine and showing your taps (like it should)Second, after the latest update, I’ve been having issues with my element’s text. When you have an element that mainly consists of text, it will let you do a simple text edit when brought into a project. My issue is that when I add an element (with the simple text edit) into my project, make the changes I want, and exit out of the project, it doesn't save. When I go back in the project, the element text is set back to its default. It’s hard for me to explain, but I hope that these things can be fixed soon!!!!

Don’t even bother with this

The app is extremely laggy and will crash constantly by literally using editing opinions in the app. Once your project starts lagging and glitching, consider it gone because the constant crashes will only make it worse as you try to salvage it. Quite literally if you try to play your project it will lag horribly before crashing seconds later. You can’t even export your projects in an attempt to save them since it will crash in the downloading process. So you’re left with one option: Start over again from scratch on a new project. But oh wait, it’ll just lag and crash again. 🥰😍The developers have been told this is a common issue with their app for MONTHS. But they couldn’t be bothered do anything about it and will occasionally respond with the generic, automated “please email customer service” reply in the negative reviews. It’s sad since this app actually has a lot to offer without needing a subscription, and is fairly simple to use. But really you’re better off using the free version of Videostar or some other editing program. At least with those you get a functional app.

I love it but it has an unusual glitch.

I love alight motion. I think it’s one of the best apps for editing. It has a lot of effects that other editing apps don’t have so that brought my attention. I’ve been using alight for almost a year and the past glitches didn’t affect my edits until the one I have now, on my iPhone 7. I got this glitch recently about maybe a week ago. The glitch disabled my use of photo or videos. It looked as if I didn’t have any photos or videos. At first I thought I had accidentally disabled it in the settings, but i checked and it was still on “Read and Write.” I disabled it then enabled it again to see if it was a small glitch. Turns out, that didn’t work either. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app but all that did was delete all of my projects and stop my membership. No worries on the membership though, I can handle that. The last thing I tried was making a new account but it still showed that I had no photos nor videos. I hope this glitch gets fixed soon.
