Love it 100%. However
I love alight motion! It great for editing, animating, and I just love everything about it. It’s makes my animations better and it’s simple to use (well for me). However, the problem is that there would be weird stuff going on. Like for one, it would show all my photo and I would be fine, but then all of a sudden, the photos disappear. Even when I allow it to use all photos, it wouldn’t appear. I had to delete and reinstall the app again for this to work again. I’m not particularly happy about this because all the projects I had in there are now gone and the data is, well of course, gone. The next thing is that it would just randomly crash and take me back to my Home Screen. I had this problem many times before and it’s really annoying because I had to delete it again (and I just deleted it , the two situations happened within an hour of each other). I was completely confused because before these problems alight motion was perfect (little problems here and there but it’s not crucial). I’m not sure if it’s a bug or some other thing causing this but I don’t know how to fix it.
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!!!!
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!
Love this app but this glitch is holding me back

I just recently started using this app because I wanted to get into video editing. When I started using it everything was great and there were no glitches (or so it seemed). After a while I got to the point where I needed to add text to one of my videos and that’s when it happened. Every time I attempt to add text to my video, instead of it showing the message I want it to say, it says “”. I simply cannot figure out why it’s been doing this and it doesn’t seem like anyone else has encountered this problem. No matter how many times I delete the app and install it once more or edit the text it doesn’t work. I should mention that it occurs on every single edit I have tried to add text too. Other than this the app has been great. I even went as far as too pay for and remove the watermark. I would still like to know how to add text to my video though :/
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.
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.
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.
It’s great but...
The app is overall an amazing editing app anyone could ever ask for on iPhone/Android or any devices whatsoever. Though, I’m not entirely sure if it’s just me or if anyone else experiences the same predicament I am currently facing but I have made massive progress on an edit that I’ve gotta finish before midnight (personal reasons) and it repetitively kicks me out of the app, crashes, lags whenever I try to either mask two pictures and/or shapes while on the other end of the spectrum, radically shuts my phone off. I’ve been having this trouble since a few days into my commencement of editing again and it’s just really difficult to work when it keeps hurling you out of the app.
Hopefully, these issues could be fixed and improved, it would mean so much for all editors and myself included. It’s an amazing app, don’t get me wrong. This merely has something to do with internal works. Thank you in advance!
It’s alright, but here’s why
I have had so many problems with this app and by far it is starting to chap my khakis. The effects are great and all along with the transitions. But gosh, every time I want to do something to a certain photo while it is grouped with at least two other photos, it decides to not show up. At all. I’m thinking “hmm maybe I turned off the eye icon” or “maybe I put the opacity down or something”. NO! not at all, it’s neither of those options. I don’t know what is going on or what is happening, but jeez I just wanna edit my videos man. I downloaded this app like a year ago (2 or 3 months ago), and it worked like a charm. But now it’s acting like I put a virus in it or something. I would like for these “problems” of mine to be handled, at least some of them. But if it starts to become worse than it already is, then I will have to take matters into my own hands.
Tell me what’s happening or fix it. Please

I was of confused just because I was following tutorials as so and then I did exactly what they did but no it would not work ever. I say you can fix this and make it a bit more easier I’d love the app but until then the watermark. Not the watermark, you see I hate watermarks and it’s not helping if I can’t remove it and if I have to pay for it like I don’t need the other stuff. And also for my issues what’s gonna me me wanna try to buy it if none of it is working!? If I’m doing something wrong then I don’t know but for it’s a 1 - 10 because if I felt like I did something wrong i re - did it but no it wouldn’t work if the same thing is happening to you then don’t waste your time and just ask to fix it so that they can quickly find a solution like please 🥺 it’s not me I really am tapping the buttons they do and copy them but it won’t work get it to help please I’ve heard the app was good this was not what I was expecting I thought better. Maybe I’ll come back for now I’ll be stuck with a bad app to use before I can figure out alight Motion 🥶🥶😞 I’d love help.
