Waste of my money and my time

And I just missed the window to get a refund by a few days. SMH...

Read Leahz's review to see ALL the issues I experienced as well.

I was so hopeful and tried so hard to use this product--on the app, on the desktop.

Because I am writer and speaker, I was hoping to write my scripts in the app and be able to batch record. Imagine my shock when my scripts I had written would not load because the app kept freezing and crashing.

The app froze often, crashed, took hours and one time over a day to finish processing a short form video. I can't imagine it I had tried to use for a Zoom webinar. Which was another use case I was looking forward to, but with all the issues, I don't want this app to embarrass me in front of my clients and prospects.

The workflow is too slow to be of use. I can stop and start recording to read my script faster than using this teleprompter and then trying to edit and upload.

The caption phrasing was strange and difficult to impossilbe to change. I know better than the words on screen how to edit my videos best. I don't them to recreate the video editing process, which has been around for decades.

The placement of captions and logos is not visible on IG Reels or Tiktok or Pinterest or YouTube Shorts.

Customer support was incredibly SLOW and UNHELPFUL, which also perfectly describes the mobile and desktop app as well.

I downloaded a FREE video software yesterday from a competitor that added captions to my videos with ease. Could even edit the captions. And saving and exporting the finished video was blazing fast. I didn't need to watch a video or call help support or need to schedule a call with a support advisor for several weeks in the future, which didn't help me at the time i needed it, which was my BigVu experience.

BigVu has so much work to make this app worthwhile.

And now I am stuck like Chuck and not able to get a refund.

If I could give NEGATIVE tacos, I would.

BIG Expectations, Overall BIG Results, Could do Better (and BIGGER)

I started off on the free account via mobile app and instantly loved it. I used it ad-hoc initially for the teleprompter feature whilst recording.

Once I saw this LTD available here, I went for it.

Now I use it for mainly for subtitles and then the teleprompter if filming via mobile.

Businesses can add their logo, branding colours, and pick a font. Would be nice if we could add 3-4 colours for branding, 2 isn't enough.

So far the mobile app has actually (thankfully) served me fine. 1 instance of it kicking me out of amending the subtitles but other than that, it's been great.

Via laptop, there seem to be glitches which need fixing;

- Can't upload a video from my laptop to my account especially when adding subtitles. I I have to have the video on my phone, upload it via the mobile app, and then I can use the laptop to amend any subtitles.

- Would be nice if we could save settings. For example, every time I connect via an external webcam, I have to change the settings each time before pressing record

- If I come out of recording screen, then go back in to record a new video or a new take, then I have to change the camera settings again

It would be nice if we could save settings so that every time I use the external webcam, it picks up on this.

The app needs to have all features working, and working well.

Features on the mobile app should be available via laptop and vice-a-versa.

For now, for me, it's 4 tacos, it's deserving of 5 but because of the glitches, it's a 4 for now until these can be resolved.

Works great - don't agree with negative reviews.

I was not so sure if I should buy BiGVU after reading some negative reviews. However, the solution sounded so promising on their website, so I gave it a shot.

Actually, I found it to be extremely useful. Everything works as advertised. The workflow is amazing and saves you an insane amount of time. At least it does in my case. Scripting - recording with teleprompter - uploading to your PC - adjusting your video - downloading your video. Everything works perfectly. No quality problems whatsoever!

Of course, it is not a solution for cinema-quality movies. But I think this is not what it was built for. And I think this isn't what most of us need. For any kind of learning videos, marketing videos, customer acquisition videos, reviews, or something similar, this is AMAZING! It makes video making really easy and efficient. Can't recommend it enough for anyone dealing with these kinds of videomaking processes.

Agree with leahz

Unfortunately, I had the exact same experience as leahz.

Despite a seamless editing process for the most part, it took me TWO HOURS to output one video-the app kept crashing on me while it was processing.

Totally unacceptable.

Also, the captioning function is basically useless. I cannot understand how they didn't allow the option to move captions. It is so low you can't even see it on social media.

Every video editor I've ever used has allowed for movement, rotation, and resizing...you can do none of this with BigVU.

Super disappointing product. Stick with something else.

Too Many Glitches

Incredibly frustrated with this product. It has so much potential, but is essentially unusable for me. I don't know how anyone else is making use of it.

1. Low Quality Video: I wanted to use BigVu to autogenerate captions for existing videos. But, apparently, after generating the captions, it automatically compresses the file when you try to download it. I end up with a blurry, lower-quality version of the video I originally imported, which is of no use.

After waiting for a customer support representative on their website for literally 2 hours, and then chatting back and forth with the rep for an additional hour, they eventually told me that it was a flaw in the system they already knew about and they (may or may not) work on it in the future. The representative told me that I needed to work on the BigVu mobile app instead, if I wanted my videos to be in full quality. Which brings me to my next issue...

2. The App Constantly Crashes: When moving to the mobile app, as suggested, the app crashed every single time I tried to use it. I tried multiple files, at multiple times and every time I went to make an edit, the app crashed. I eventually gave up.

3. Social Media Limitations: I also discovered that you cannot change the position of the captions. If you're wanting to use this for Instagram Reels or Facebook stories, it won't work, as the position of the caption is too low on the screen for social media, making it impossible to use for this purpose.

4. Glitchy Teleprompter: I only tried using the teleprompter once, but found it to be glitchy as well. At the end of recording my first take, the script simply disappeared in the last 30 seconds, and I was left with a blank screen.

So very frustrated with both the product itself and the lack of customer support knowledge. A complete waste of time and money.
