Customer Reviews



It clearly says "MORE THAN 80 FILTERS, FROM BASIC TO ADVANCED." There are only 26. This is such a misleading description. I've never been this angry after purchasing an app. Will need to figure out how to file a complaint.

Easily added effects


I needed something quick to add old movie effects. I had been using After Effects, but was working on a computer that didn’t have it. Almost as easy to use for adding effects. When I started using it for editing, it wasn’t as intuitive, but I got my audio mixed in and made a few cuts. It wouldn’t save in as many dimensions as I wanted, but I found another inexpensive app to change the dimensions. It let me save my effect settings, so I could run a number of videos through it and not have to reset my settings each time. That was a big time saver.

Lot of features for the price

El Mondo

I bought the first version, and it was a little slow. But the new version is faster and there are quite a few special effects you can add to video clips, which can be exported and used inother programs. If you need to do something quick like slow a clip down without having to launch iMovie or another application, this little program comes in very handy.
