With your free version of InVideo, you’ll have access to a large set of tools. From there, you’ll see the available premium assets.
There are many features to get familiar with, but in this InVideo review, we’re highlighting the ones that really got us excited!
To kick off a project, you have all the tools needed within the InVideo Editor. From there, you can upload your media or use tons of stock videos, music, and ready-to-use templates.
Also, you have easy access to transitions, masks, text animations, and filters. Plus, you can arrange and edit with layers in your timeline just like in Premiere. The creative process is very enjoyable.
Easy Drag and Drop Templates
The next feature in this InVideo review, is the professionally created templates. In fact, there are over 5000 of them ready to go.
As mentioned, rather than starting from scratch, you can save time with the InVideo Simple drag-and-drop features. They have options in several categories, such as social ads, e-commerce, fashion, sales, travel, and many more.
One thing that makes creating videos much easier is the stock media available. Within the editor itself, you have access to over 8 million assets.
For example, there’s no need to import from assets one place to another, stock media is ready for use from within the editor. Moreover, all the stock media assets come pre-licensed for ease of use.
Text to Video
Get ready for our favorite feature in this InVideo review – it’s called Text-To-Video. For example, you can upload a script, choose a text-based template, and the video with automatic stock media choices is created for you. So cool!
Also, you can edit the text or swap out any images or videos. Add a voiceover and music, and you’re good to go. 👌
Single Click Shortcuts
Ever wanted to remove the background of your image of a person or product with one click? Well now you can with the power of AI (available with paid subscriptions). For example, remove the background and make the point of interest pop!
You can speed up your output by using a feature called Brand Presets. This allows you to include your brand logo, name, fonts, and color schemes in every template with the click of a button.
In fact, with InVideo you can include a preloaded end clip with a checkbox for each of your videos right before export.
Mobile App Editing
This feature is another big highlight in our InVideo review. Sometimes the best tool is the one you have on you. Ideas strike like lightning, and when you have a powerful editing tool in your pocket, there’s no reason to wait.
When working with a team, InVideo makes collaboration really easy. For example, you can take your project and share it with a collaborator. They can then leave comments with timestamps for a fast and easy workflow.
Tutorials & Support
Lastly, InVideo is designed for users who have no previous video creation experience. For this reason, they have really focused on their support.
They have plenty of tutorials, blogs, 24-hour human support, and a dedicated YouTube channel to help you get the job done. This way, you can hit the ground running.
