Extremely Limited Features

This app does very little. I tried it out and as far as I can see it does three things to an image: 1) let you put moving flashes/stars coming from behind a part of an image, 2) let you add something like a lens flare to part of an image, 3) add a square around part of an image. And then you can add a caption. But that’s it. I really don’t see a use for this app at all that I ca annoy find in a more full-featured app. Maybe Techsoft plans to add more functions. But until then I’d skip this app.

Very Cool App!

I've used SnagIt! for many years. It is an amazing product. I'm in IT and it really saves times and helps me to make good looking "how-to" documents!

Can you get more templates for the MOTION app?

Captions are great. Highlights are horrible

The highlights are really lame. I expected more from TecHSmith.

But the caption show a lot of promise. Let me customize them with different colors, different speeds, and you’ve got a real winner.

But I wish I understood what you were doing with the highlights. I couldn’t get it to look good. And the examples of lighting up the glasses or going down the dock are really bad

Let us know when you’ve got something else for testing
