User Reviews for Splice - Video Editor & Maker

Great features especially to animate photos except for music

I especially liked using the Ken Burns effect on still photos which worked much, much better - is far more versatile - and easier than its counterpart in iMovie. It’s relatively also easy to splice film clips together, too. Biggest complaint with upgrades made since summer 2019 is the loss of some of the holiday music (I had a hard time doing holiday video last Christmas) and other suitable music to use, and the loss of the feature which let you splice the free music together easily with fade-out options available at beginning and end. Also, most music supplied is too short (less than a minute) - my videos typically are 1-1/2 to 2-3/4 minutes in length. I now rarely use Splice’s music and have to import video clips I do here into iMovie or some other program to finish. Other complaint is not having special features with how text or titles displays such as the ability to have letters dropping down, or fading in and out, etc., like text features available on iMovie. However, I do like the colored text/type choices which can make text much easier to read on bright backgrounds. I also like the ease in selecting aspect ratio although it is limited to only 3 choices. Overall this is a nice, fairly easy to use editing package. I use it the most for animating static photos so they zoom in or out, move from side to side or even - on rare occasion - rotate, which is especially cool if done right.

Easy and fun to use

It imports my media quickly (even large video files that are over a GB) and exports my finished videos just as fast, even when I choose 4K definition. I love the option to quickly export in different quality sizes and how it shows pretty accurate estimates of the final file size, as I often need several copies of my videos to fit the size limits of various sites I post on. The interface is very user friendly and there is an awesome array of effects, transitions, filters, etc. that has allowed me to make some pretty stellar music videos that others really enjoy. I’m happy with this app!I did experience one bug however. When I was doing some pretty meticulous audio clip editing for my one video, I had a glitch where one particular piece of audio kept playing whenever I went to preview/play what I had so far. It would overlay all the other audio even tho I had deleted that clip and when I exported it, it went away. So it only existed in the editing screen. It wasn’t a huge deal, but it did make it a bit annoying to continue editing because I couldn’t hear the actual audio over the bugged audio no matter where I was in the editing process. Only happened once and hasn’t happened again — but wanted to make the developers aware. Thanks for the awesome app!

Absolutely great aside for a couple of minor inconveniences!

I am absolutely LOVING all of the new features, especially the fact that I can now use the text to make subtitles!! The design is sleek and modern, the view screen is bigger, there are more sound effects, I can crop it down to square size for Instagram, etc. I’m loving it!My only issues thus far have been with editing the music. I’m working on my big ‘ol iPad, yet I nonetheless have a reeeeeeeally hard time finding the hit box for the slide bar that’s supposed to help me “crop” the music. I end up just awkwardly moving it to the side instead of shortening or lengthening the clip, and it gets very frustrating. I had to get out my Apple Pencil in order to get the job done. The other thing I’m struggling with is that, with my projects, I usually work with small music segments. In the most recent one, I’m using only five seconds of the provided music. To do that, I unfortunately have to go aaaaaaaaall the way to the end of the video and drag it down to size little by little. Then again, I’m not sure if that’s because this app was made for bigger videos. Thus far, those are the only things I would change! This app is the greatest video editing app I’ve found up to date. I’ve been using it for about two years now. Thank you so much for providing this app!

Great app but only works for those who pay membership

So I’ve been using this app since 2016. I started video editing as a hobby after a school assignment. After that, I used splice daily to edit the videos I recorded of myself playing a variety of mobile games and to make family videos. Unfortunately, as years go by, even though Splice has acquired some very cool new features, I can now barely use it without paying something. Today I entered the app and found out that the crop and adjust features are now part of the app’s membership package. This was one of the things I liked most about Splice, that I could edit my videos using these features without having to pay. It’s still a great app though, but people like me, that can’t pay a membership, are continuously being affected by this nonstop economic interest that results in forcing us to stop doing what we love, which is video editing, and search for another and more suitable video editing app that doesn’t exists for free. Video editing apps shouldn’t be only for people that look forward to make money through them. There should also be apps for people that are just looking for a way to do what they like and feel satisfied with their own work. Splice is a great, very complete video editing app, but it is not for everyone apparently.

Splice please help me

Hi, I am Owen Walker and I am a young filmmaker. I'm 12 years old, and work hard on making movies. I like splice because it's fun and easy to use, but I'm having trouble with it. Sometimes when I edit it kicks me out of it, but That's not my main concern. As a filmmaker I never get around to making full movies so I kind of just make videos, But I kind a got real into a movie that's almost an hour long. I edited the entire movie with splice. But one day splice wouldn't let me in. It let me in the other projects but it didn't let me into that one movie, the only movie that I cared about. The movie is called secret kill, and I've been working on it and editing it and filming it for over a year. I've tried restarting my phone, but nothing works. It will kick me out 2 ways. One of the ways when it all started, it would load in now to get into it but then every time I got into it it kicked me out. And the other scenario is it would all the way get to loading it but at the last little area of the S it wouldn't load it would just stay there for hours and it never got there. In one day when it did get there, it just kicked me out of the app again. It makes me very stressed out because I don't wanna lose a project that I put a lot of my time into. Anytime I would just be having a normal day, I wanted to film because that's all I cared about. Please help.

Includes MUSIC!!!!

So I got in a fight with my husband. I needed a gesture to say “sorry.” I wanted to do something that was easy because I wasn’t that sorry… so I thought it would be really cool to do a video of our life together and pictures set to music. I looked up a few of the apps in my App Store download it about six of them that were free (including this one). I figured I would go into each one of them after they were through downloading and see which one would be the easiest to use so I could throw something together…Well three of them made me put in my credit card information to open the app and wanted me to subscribe… Guess what, that’s not free!! But I finally opened SPLICE and it was AWESOME! It had songs, literally thousands, to choose from and the songs were free!!! It was so easy to understand how to do it and it had everything you could want as far as effects and editing capabilities…The only complaint I have is that while putting together my video and watching the pictures of me and my husband float across the screen, to music I absolutely loved, I started feeling more sorry. Thank goodness that even though this was an easy project to do it looks like it took a long time and a lot of effort, so It will convey the appropriate amount of “sorry.” GET THIS APP!!!!!!!

The tiniest bug literally makes the app unusable.

Compared to all the other editing apps on the market for IPhones, this one was seemingly the best editing app BY FAR in terms of subscription pricing and efficiency. The app never crashed, the layout is very simple to understand, and it’s easy to get the hang of...but there’s a bug that literally made me go back to my original review and lower the amount of stars I gave it from 5 to 2. I’ve only been using this app for a couple of hours and I began to edit pretty large media files on it. Everything was going perfectly well and I was happy, but I soon realized that what I thought was my mistake was a bigger problem than it appeared to be. Whenever I add an audio clip over a video clip, the audio clip just remains at 100% volume no matter what I do and it’s so frustrating because there’s no reason why it should be doing that. I’ve checked that I lowered the volume, I’ve deleted the audio clip and replaced it, and still the audio was at 100% blasting volume, completely ruining hours of hard work. I can’t add in background music because of it. It’s so annoying because I spent so much time perfecting every little detail of the video but when I went to add in music or sound, there was nothing I could do. It’s very disappointing because this app is great and I really like it, but I’m definitely going to cancel my subscription after I finish writing this review.

**EDIT** I was looking through the app and realized you can adjust the quality of the video to 1080p and the app allows you to download your video for free! Anything with the blue crown next to it means you need the subscription! Sorry for the confusion and very glad I can continue to use the app!I really enjoy this app. Simple and easy to use. I don’t use filter or adjustment on my videos. I just like to edit out clips that are kind of long. Mostly stuff of my family to share with them. I remove anything that’s not needed like if the camera pans to the floor or something. I haven’t used the app in a couple months and went to save a video I edited but unfortunately now that app has you pay for a weekly subscription of $4.99 or $9.99 a week. At this time it’s not something I can justify paying. I understand and absolutely agree creators should be payed for what they make. It would be nice if there was the option for the bare minimum of split, delete, speed up options for free and the subscription included their others affects and abilities the app has to offer. For now I’ll be on the lookout for another app to use, but if you have the ability to fit their subscription into your budget I fully believe this app is worth it.

Please fix!

I love Splice and everything about it, but there’s a problem with it. Maybe this might be my iPad or something to do with settings but if there’s anything you can do please take action - I was going all well with my animations that took hours to make individually. All of a sudden it said that Splice needed access to my photos (which I gave access to AAAAGEES ago). It said that the footage in my videos needed to be restored because somehow it got deleted but I checked multiple times that the footage I had in the videos was the exact same, and it was in my camera roll for certain. I deleted splice and downloaded it again, hoping it would do something. Now, my animations are gone, I don’t have access to premium features and it is still asking for access to my photos. I went to settings, went to splice but there was no button for ‘allowing access to photos’. This happened to all of my apps. I’m really devastated that this happened to Ibis Paint X because 2 years worth of drawings are gone so I can’t see my progress. I completely understand if this is an issue that you have no control over and if it is just my iPad or setting malfunctioning, but if there’s anything you can do/ anything I could do to solve this, PLEASE let me know! Thank you. (But when this is fixed I will continue using your amazing app!)

Love it, one major problem

I love this app. It is so easy and fun to use and I have been using it to make edits to keep for myself and share with my friends. I do not have a Splice Pro (the premium version you need to pay for) because I can’t exactly afford it. The last time I used this app was a few months ago, and I had no problems with it, and it was perfect. Today I decided I wanted to use it again, and made an edit, but then I came across a huge problem. The app doesn’t even let you save the video you made to your photo library unless you have Splice Pro. I tried to navigate this problem by screen recording, but it puts watermarks all over the video, making it really annoying to watch. I am very disappointed with this update to the app, and I understand that the developers need to make money, but the fact that we can’t even save our edits without paying is going too far in my opinion. This just made it so I can’t share the edit with anyone unless I show them in person (or pay the subscription). The subscription is usually around 5 dollars a week or so, and I don’t think I would be willing to pay 20 dollars a month for an app I don’t use that often. To the developers: I would recommend making certain filters and transitions and other things only available to premium members in return for making it so anyone can save their edits. Please consider it, sorry this paragraph is so long.
