We started building Type Studio because we got frustrated with the way video editing is today! It is counterintuitive when compared to everything within the modern conventions of UI design and functionality. There are so many buttons, dials, knobs, settings, and keyboard shortcuts to remember, that learning how it all works becomes in and of itself an exercise in patience and resolve.
For content-focused video editing, you don’t need most of the features offered by most editing software, and the barrier to entry is very steep — you have to own a machine capable of running these programs and know-how all of the functions work.
With Type Studio we are building a completely text-based video editor that lives in your browser. Our goal is to make video editing as easy and as quick as possible.
We know that not everybody is able to pay for every software they use, which is why our goal is always to offer a fully functional free version (without watermarks and all that crap). At the same time, we have to keep the lights on and that’s why we’ve decided to add a monthly upload limit and several premium features.
