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.

Magisto

I think Magisto is well-suited for individuals, businesses, and brands that want to create marketing videos that are on the shorter side. I don't think Magisto is a good match for someone seeking to create long, informative videos, streaming videos, etc. It is also good for someone who is working to brand every aspect of their business. Magisto helps with that.

Cons

Descript

  • Doesn't produce a formal invoice that I can submit for reimbursement
  • Still not sure how I would use this to produce an entire story with narration

Magisto

  • It would be great if Magisto would allow significantly longer videos—20 to 30 minutes. I've often wondered why Magisto focuses on shorter videos and only recently began allowing videos that are 10 minutes maximum.
  • I would love for Magisto to offer an affiliate program. I publish a lot of videos that I create in Magisto and refer it to many people in the education and dance industries. I would love to be able to do that as a paid affiliate and I'm sure others would as well.

Based on 1 answer
I don't believe I've ever contacted Magisto for support, so I can't really say. The app has only frozen on me a couple of times (recently), and I usually log out and log back in and the error is fixed.

Alternatives Considered

Descript

I've used Rev and liked them, but I find Descript to be more flexible and, overall, more useful. We're also experimenting with Searchie.io, but it's early days yet, so I can't comment.

Magisto

The user experience via Magisto is cleaner and fresher. The professional plan for Animoto started at $29 per month in comparison to $9.99 per month at Magisto.

  • Has provided the opportunity to create other assets (like audiograms)
