Why Use NextFrame on Video Production?

The truth is, you may have already come across multitudes of apps that are meant for video production for smartphones. But do they work?

Well, some apps pack amazing features for post-production. By subscribing to paid features, you can easily access tons of pre-designed templates, overlays, transitions, etc. However, most of these apps offer limited functionalities and aren’t equipped to handle large video files such as UltraHD, 4k, and 8k files.

While apps allow you to edit videos from your phone, you’ll still need to invest in cameras, project management software, and other toolkits to record, store, and collaborate on the raw files. All of these equals higher investments - which is a critical area of concern for most businesses. Besides, there’s a steep learning curve involved with mastering most of these apps.
