Definitely suited for a business that has a presence on the internet. It is a relatively easy program to use and will make your video quality look professional. It doesn't matter what business you are into, if video is something that will take your company to another level than this is a good program to get the job done.
Read full review Pros 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.

Read full review Cons 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 Read full review The advertisements to upgrade need to go. I understand you guys gotta make money but I already paid for the product I have and I don't need a popup every time I open the program telling me there is an upgrade available for $xx.99. Better documentation on how to use certain plugins. DirectorZone is pointless. Read full review Support Rating
Again, I haven't tried a whole lot of different video editing software over the years, but of the ones I tried, PowerDirector seemed to be the right fit for me and the team I worked with. It helped solve the need for tutorial videos and it allowed us to create a bunch of videos in a very small time frame. I recommend it especially for people without a lot of video editing experience

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.

Read full review Return on Investment 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 Read full review Fast turn around on editing.
