FlexClip Review

In this FlexClip Review I will cover some of the key features and functionality of this free cloud-based video creation app. The popularity of video has increased a great deal over the past few years.

Using video in communication today is an effective tool. Whether it is for commercial purposes, like advertising, or sharing personal experiences through videos.

That being said, creating videos can be daunting, especially if you're new to video creation. I personally use many different video creation software for different types of videos. FlexClip is a decent addition to my video arsenal and toolbox.

You can create videos fast by using many of the professionally-designed premade video templates. But, if want a little more flexibility you can also create videos from scratch by using the blank template. I show you how to create videos, step-by-step.

In this video below, I do a brief FlexClip Review based on my own firsthand experience using this new video maker. Overall, I like FlexClip as a video creator and I think if you’re a novice at video creation, you will find this online video app useful. Further down the page, you will find my demo and walk-through video, in which I give you a tour of the user-interface.


In this video above, I give you a demo of FlexClip and walk you through the user-interface. What I like most about this cloud-based video maker is that it is easy to use and is especially great for beginners. The FlexClip user-interface is simplistic which makes it easy to create videos with not much of a learning curve.

The basic steps involved in creating a video in FlexClip are fairly simple: (1) you upload your media (images or video clips); (2) add animated text and customize it; (3) and finally preview the video and export the video as an MP4. You can add music and even record your own voice-over for each scene (if you want to). FlexClip has a built-in library of royalty-free stock images and video footage, as well as background music. With FlexClip you can create square and vertical videos which are great for social media.


As mentioned earlier, you can create different types of videos in FlexClip. You can use the many professionally-designed video templates or create your own videos from scratch using the blank template. They plan to continue adding more video templates.

In this video below, I walk you through the process of creating a video from scratch, step-by-step. I focus on creating a short demo video using the blank template. The basic process of creating videos from scratch in FlexClip is fairly simple: (1) you create a blank project; (2) add scenes; (3) add images and video clips to your scenes; (3) add animated text to your scenes; (4) add background music or record a voice-over for each scene; (5) preview the video; (6) and finally export the video as an MP4.

The rendering of the video projects is fairly quick. In my experience, it took less than a minute to render a 30 second video. The rendering speed will of course depend on how long your video project is and what type of media you’ve used in your video project.


As mentioned earlier, FlexClip is free to use, but there are currently two premium plans: Basic and Plus. The free version has limitation in terms of features and functionality. In this video below, I compare some of the key features in the free vs premium plans.

  • First of all, in the free plan, you’re limited to creating up to one-minute videos in duration. Comparatively, you can create up to 3-minute duration videos in the BASIC plan, and up to 5-minute duration videos in the PLUS plan.
  • Secondly, you’re limited to a maximum of 12 saved projects as opposed to, 50 and 200 saved projects respectively, in the premium plans. You can of course, delete projects.
  • Thirdly, you're limited up to 480p (standard) resolution downloads in the free version. Whereas, the Basic (720p) and Plus (1080p) plans have HD quality resolution downloads.
  • Fourthly, you’re limited to using one stock video per project, in the free version, compared to 5 stock videos (in the BASIC plan) and unlimited stock videos (in the PLUS plan).
  • Finally, you will have a FlexClip watermark in your rendered videos, in the free version and no FlexClip watermarks, in the premium plans.

In terms of the pricing, the Basic plan costs $60 (paid annually) and the Plus plan costs $96 (paid annually). These prices are subject to change, so make sure to check the FlexClip website.

In terms of IMPROVEMENTS, currently FlexClip only works on Google Chrome, but they plan to make it compatible with other browsers like Firefox. I would like to see an option to create folders in the My Projects section in order to better organize video projects. I would also like to see an option to fade out background music.

Overall, I like FlexClip as a video creator and I think you will find this cloud-based video creation app useful and fun to use, especially if you’re new to video creation. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Also, if you're already using FlexClip, feel free to leave your feedback and suggestions for improvements in the comments section below and I will be sure to pass it on to the FlexClip team.
