HOW TO SAVE CUTE CUT VIDEOS TO GALLERY: Cute Kit comes in 2 versions: Basic Free or Pro Pad and will run on any Android version after 4.1.

The ‘free’ version has a ‘cute cut’ watermark and the export is limited to 30 seconds. The length of the movie on the timeline can be long, but you can only export 30 seconds.

The Pro version removes both watermarks and allows unlimited length exports. The Pro version costs $ 5.99 + tax.

The cute kit allows six different types of media on the timeline: video, image, text, self-draw, music, and voiceover.

In addition to the two video layers in the timeline, several texts, self-draw, music, and VO layers can be seen below.


Each layer can be manipulated in terms of image size, PIP, placement, effects, borders, shadows, etc.

Also, the ‘Self Draw’ feature can be easily used to create gradients or combine with a text layer to create third and other graphics.

Question: If a change is applied to an element, the element is re-locked and cannot be adjusted in any way other than moving along the timeline. If you want to make adjustments to an element’s size, color, screen placement, etc., you must first apply any transitions to that element. Make any required adjustments, then reuse the transfer. In the example below, a video clip is selected, but many tools are grayed out. To enable these tools, the transitions (the blue section at each end of the clip) need to be removed to reactivate the gray out tools.

Video elements on the timeline can be adjusted from 0.25 ٪ to 400 for slow or fast playback.

When starting a new project, you are given the opportunity to choose the format of HD 16: 9, SD 4: 3, or Social Media Square 1: 1. The default orientation is horizontal, but if you’re creating content for Instagram stories, etc., you can choose vertical, at this point, you can also select the desired frame rate from 60, 30, 25, or 24 fps.

The available output options depending on the resolution selected in the initial setup. Resolution settings can also be accessed by pressing the Settings button. If you select SD 4: 3’ ‘Square 1: 1’ or Portrait 9:16 resolutions, the output options are ‘High’, ‘Medium’ or ‘Low’. If you choose HD and horizontal, then there are 4 standard settings for export: ‘HQ1080’, ‘HQ720’, ‘Medium’ and ‘Low’. I created a simple 1:00 minute video with 2 video layers, 1 ‘ self-made’ layer, 1 text layer, 4 image layers with dynamic transitions, and 1 music layer. When I exported the same project using 4 different quality levels, the resulting file specs were as follows:

QualityFrame SizeVideo CodecAudio CodecBit RateFile Size
HQ10801920×1080H.264AAC 44.1KHz14.62 mbits/sec104 MB
HQ7201280×720H.264AAC 44.1KHz9.88 mbits/sec70.7 MB

Low640×360H.264AAC 44.1 KHz1.06 mbits/sec7.67 MB
For Better Configuration

The app gives no control over the production settings of each export quality level. Nor does it control the location of the resulting file. The default location is ‘Internal Storage / DCIM / Camera’. Like it can’t be set to file on an SD card.

When replayed on a phone, each of the output features looks good, but when it goes to the computer, compression is noticeable when using the ‘low’ output setting. ۔

Both the Google Play Store and the MobiView website indicate that you can output directly to social media with a cute cut timeline. However, the version I reviewed only had the option to output the camera roll.

Overall, I like the app. I found it intuitive and easy to put together a short video with multiple elements. Transitions can be used not only for transitions between media elements but also as a kind of keyframe to control things like color, location, size, etc.

I feel that this mobile director competes well with applications like Power Director and Coinmaster and has the advantage of not being a subscription. You really can’t do anything other than very short projects with the free version as it’s not limited to over 30 seconds of production, but since it’s only a one-time cost of -5.99 + tax for the whole ‘Pro’ ۔ The subscription model is much better than apps.

If I was editing my phone, I would have used Power Director first. I think from now on I will consider using the cute kit.

Cons: (how to save cute cut videos to gallery)

While cutting the video clip on the timeline, I had a hard time seeing where I made the cut. It would be nice if the developer added something other than a very thin black line to show the kit, which is easy to see.

I found it difficult to hold the ‘handle’ when adjusting the length of an element on the timeline. You can spread the time horizontally, not vertically. Also, when using the ‘handle’ to adjust the length of the element, my finger covered the end of the clip, so I couldn’t see if I moved it in the right amount.

When resizing elements in the preview window, it is also difficult to rotate. It is better if you have to tap the second button to enable rotation. As it is, when you add media to the timeline or later select it without applying any transitions, it will rotate and resize. But I found it difficult to resize it without turning it a little. There is a button to reset, but it resets to both the original size and rotation.
