Descript
  • Transcription of internal presentations and web conferences. It's great for capturing and transcribing the audio from presentations, demos, etc. which can then be used to develop training materials, blog posts, etc.
  • Podcasts. Makes it really easy to record, edit, and publish video or audio podcasts.
  • Promotional videos. Streamlines and accelerates the process for developing videos.

Pros
Descript
  • I like the sidebar - breaking my scripts up into different "chapters" makes it easier to create quickly.
  • I like that it auto-corrects punctuation, capitalization, etc. as I polish the scripts.
  • It's easy for my team and my collaborators to read/listen, remark, and create useable transcripts.

  • It's the perfect editing software for news programs with easy voice overs and fast editing and rendering time.
  • Very light program runs almost on any PC! It can handle almost all today's available codecs and video formats along with any kind of graphics, sounds, and other media.
  • A real multimedia editor!
  • Fastest software camera stabilization I have seen so far with excellent results!
  • Fastest and most convenient multi-camera production editing ever!

Cons
Descript
  • When editing a transcript it can get a little cumbersome, as a double click doesn't always do what you think it will
  • Some features aren't that intuitive (what is resize word gap) for beginners
  • A tutorial/wizard as soon as you sign up would be very useful

  • I would like to see some improvement with keys effects, and specifically Chroma Keys and Masks.
  • Adjustment layers like Adobe Premiere would be a nice feature too.
  • EDIUS of course has adjustment layers as filters, but it would be most convenient to have separate adjustment layers on the timeline.

Alternatives Considered
Descript
Descript is by far superior to the other editing software you can get on Apple computers. It's able to do a lot more and really save us tons of time. Other Adobe apps are great, but take a while to learn. Descript is very user-friendly, making it easy to start from day one with very little training.

Return on Investment
Descript
  • I can get video completed much more quickly and cheaply
  • We can produce more video content because of the speed with which we can have a finished product
  • We can have shorter timelines for example I record on Monday and we publish on Tuesday which wouldn't be otherwise possible with other methods I've used

  • It's value for money index is excellent.
  • We received back our investment more or less after couple of weeks of using that internally and stopped outsourcing editing.
