8 ‘Kizoa.com’ Reviews
My wife created a video using Kizoa after purchasing a premium membership. Creation went fine, problems began when downloading and burning dvd. I've tried burning onto DVD- and DVD neither of which will play on either my computer or either of our dvd players (one of which says right on the front of it that it plays DVD-). I have tried working with the Kizoa techs who I have even given control of my Windows 10 pc and they don't seem to have an answer and have told me that they would investigate and get back to me. Needless to say they have not gotten back to me and I cannot even get an answer when I call their tech support
I started with the free version of the "collage maker" Upgraded it twice by paying the upgrade fee. But I have to hunt backdoor ways to log back in every time I want to use it. It's impossible to simply go to their homepage and simply hit the log in tab. It never takes me to the log in page. Even when I try to refresh the page repeatedly. So I always have to do a search for Kizoa. And try every link that I can find to it. And attemt to log in from each one until I find one that works. When I do find one link that does work, I save it for the next time I want to use Kizoa. Only to have to go through the entire frustration of trying to find a way to log in again! I wate a minimum of a half an hour every time I attemt to log in. Even though I paid for this service.
I would recommend this software, without reservation, to any amateur Videographer.
I tried the Basic version (free) to see if it would do what I wanted.
NOTE: This version has almost all features enabled, but only produces videos of 1 minute in length, which include a watermark & a trailer from Kizoa.
This will not affect your ability to see if it will do what you want, but it means that the resulting product is not appropriate to use for any purpose other than to evaluate their software.
So I tried it out, & was impressed! Many companies cripple free versions of their software, leaving only the most limited of features, rather than giving you all features, but limiting size of files, using watermarks, etc. as in Kizoa.
I have used multiple video editors over the years, including Adobe Premier, Pinnacle Studio, Cyberlink PowerDirector, Corel VideoStudio, Nero Video, Windows MovieMaker, & others.
The features included in Kizoa rival most of what these other packages offer, & they will cost you a minimum of $100 (except for Windows MovieMaker, which was free, but was discontinued as of January 2017).
Having tried it out & decided this would do what I needed, I had to choose which plan I wanted:
Premium Video - $30, 10 GB storage for project elements, maximum 10 minutes length, 1068 x 600 resolution.
It would not meet my minimum needs -- 10 minutes is too short, though I could live with the other restrictions.
Premium DVD - $50, 100 GB storage for project elements, maximum 20 minutes length, 1068 x 600 resolution.
This does the job quite nicely, though I won't be burning any DVD's, since all my video distribution is via "the Cloud". Over 90% of my videos are under 20 minutes in length -- for the few that are longer, I can break them into several videos to get 40 min, 60 min, etc. I have found that video at approximately 1280 x 720 resolution works best for me -- sufficient resolution to be satisfying, but edits, encodes, & uploads quicker than higher resolutions.
This is the one I bought.
It is probably the most suitable one for amateur Videographers.
Pro - $100, unlimited storage for project elements, unlimited length, 1920 x 1080 resolution.
This would be best for someone who needs lots of storage for project elements, who regularly produces videos exceeding 20 minutes in length, or who needs full HD resolution.
It is more than is needed for most amateur Videographers.
Photo Expert - $300, unlimited storage for project elements, unlimited length, 4K resolution.
This would be best for someone who wants to generate 4K content for the relatively limited market that can currently display this.
It is excessive for amateur Videographers.
They might sound cheaper but after you buy with them, you cannot make videos any where near to "agreed time limit" at the time of buying. They force you to keep upgrading to higher versions by disabling the features on your version.
I regret buying their basic version as i felt that is cheaper and i can save some bucks.
Few videos are never complete and you wont find a trace of them!
Awful , seriously it's good for absolutely nothing , I spent hours trying to edit a video for school to put on youtube and when i was done i tried to download it but I couldn't without paying , so i went to put it directly on youtube and it said i had to pay or it the video would have the Kizoa watermark (Not a huge deal but a bit annoying) , nothing i could do about it at that point so i just tried to upload it. It basically said that the video is currently being uploaded but didn't redirect me to youtube. It's a two minute video so it should have been uploaded within an hour. Four hours later and it's not showing on my school's youtube account , i asked customer service before starting the video how to do something and they were really nice but i asked when it didn't work if they we're having problems with the website at the moment and they were nothing but rude. DO NOT USE IT. IT'S A WASTE OF TIME
While I was impressed with the options available for making slideshows on the site, they are not clear about how much you will have to pay. I spent WEEKS working on a slideshow for my friend's wedding. Once it came time to download it, I was told it was cost $50!!! What?!?
Very happy with the customer service I received from Kizoa. I needed help making my slideshow and they stayed on the phone with me until everything was exactly how I wanted it. I loved the outcome of my slideshow and so did everyone else!
I love love love this website! I was in a hurry to make a slideshow for my daughter's birthday this weekend and only had a few hours to get it done but I was pleasently surprised with Kizoa i was able to use one of their templates which was already birthday-themed. It made my slideshow for me with the photos I wanted and everyone at the birthday, including my daughter, absolutely loved it! Highly recommend!
