I purchased Viddyoze 2.0 in order to write this review and it does have some great features
Viddyoze is a cloud based software package that creates animation layovers based on templates within the system and importing transparent PNG files (such as logos, etc.) that sit on top of the layer. Once you create your overlay, it is rendered via the cloud based Viddyoze system. It can take awhile because you are placed in a queue behind others who are also utilizing Viddyoze.
With that being said, I went off and checked my email and completed some other tasks. Within 5 minutes my overlay was ready for download. The file can then be imported into your preferred video timeline editor as an overlay on top of an existing video that you might have.
When I first learned about Viddyoze and checked out the sales page, I was intrigued. The demo intros and outros were very impressive. Everything looked fantastic. Especially the price.
As I continued down the page this Viddyoze offer immediately caught my attention:
Wow! The Commercial License seemed like a fantastic deal. I immediately clicked the yellow button below and purchased (what I thought) was a full product with no subscription.
This is where my first moment of disappointment occurred. Almost immediately after making my payment via PayPal, for $67, I was offered an up sell for a $37 per month subscription for future themes, overlays, skins or whatever. That was my first WTF moment.
An email promptly came along instructing me to sign up for a webinar and account setup instructions. Easy enough and soon I was logged into the Viddyoze system and checking out a couple of the “get started” tutorial videos. All good so far and I quickly created my first test video overlay.
What I didn’t like was the choices available for the different Viddyoze overlays
There simply weren’t many overlay “templates” and apparently that was what the up sell at the end of the purchase was intended for. I believe it was $37 per month (though it could have been more) to subscribe for additional overlay templates.
Based on the purple bar above, I thought I was buying into a complete system with ALL of the overlay templates, not just a handful of starters. At this point, I decided to apply for a refund which is in progress now at the time of writing this review.
Bottom line is that Viddyoze is a good concept with a few bugs and confusion about the pricing. I really thought I was making a one time purchase of the entire system for $67. For some of you, that could still be a bargain along with the monthly subscriptions so if it’s worth it to you and your business model to pay the monthly fees, then I would definitely give it a try.
A quick note about the reviews and tool links on this site: I am an affiliate for most every product I review or link to. I purchase these products and test them myself in order to create quality reviews. All my reviews are completed as honestly as possible. I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review as to the content of the review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product, this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
