Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

PatternSmith reviews

Ease of use. Flexible.

- Scott H. Programming Director

We're running and Autometrix table, and Patternsmith is the best tool that integrates seamlessly. When it works, it's very efficient. Once you get accustomed to the workarounds and establish a workflow, custom work can be drawn up very quickly. Customer service is outstanding.

- Karl M. Production Manager

Good product, easier to use in new version, but no language choice

- Jonathan P. Machine programmer

Shotcut reviews

I have tried several other programs for my YouTube video editing, but I am now stuck onto Shotcut for all my stuff as it saves me precious time, compared to editing on other editing platforms.

- Nadeem L. Owner

Overall, this is something that editors should consider before jumping into other options. Maximizing this software's features and learning it down to the letter is really worth it. And you'll be surprised with what this baby can do. I myself have underestimated this first and found loving it later on.

- Alain Jove R. Consultant

I can only point two cons but I guess the crashy and laggy part sometimes when a lot of elements are stacked is due to my RAM and processor. I need to test it on a higher specs computer to be able to have a fair assessment. The second one is for some reason the text/ subtitle elements have a hard time lining up when you're doing adjustments on the timeline. I always make it a habit not to use undo because for some reason it executes two undo commands instead of one, and that's when I notice the text are messed up. Even if it's just one undo command or if you add other elements on the video fragment with the current text, it affects it.

Pros & cons


Excellent for making cutting markers
Also great for scoring plastic stiffeners
Helps automate what would be a tedious manual process
Techs like how easy it is to use and set up was also easy
It has been an effective design tool along with providing efficient use of materials."

When we first got the Software we had a long lost Patternsmith 2005 book that came with it
We do most of our panel manipulation usinging Auto-Cad and MPanel so some of Patternsmith's way of selecting and right clicking is a bit awkward for us
My previous work place had one of the competitions and watching them struggle with learning program was horrifying
They had someone out for two weeks or more and we only had someone out 1day
Low level functionality
It is good for cutting premade dxf files but bad at making changes to those files."


Great software - nearly as good as any other video editing software I have worked with
My overall experience with Shotcut is very good
You can be a dynamic creator with Shotcut
Shotcut is a great video editor for anyone, especially persons who don't want to spend an arm and a leg on an editor
I would definitely recommend it
Shotcut was great for starting to teach myself video editing."

We found ourselves routinely having to work around some clipped windows, truncated menu text, or confusing layouts (namely the export window)
However, it does NOT export this way
I have no experience with other video editors, so I'm not sure if that's a common theme among them
It lacks some surprising functionality that makes it frustrating to use
This is a feature that I look for in video editors and while editing, I really missed it."
