Raw Shorts is a cloud base software. This means that it can be only run with the help of the internet. It can be easily accessed from any computer, as long as it has an internet connection. Videos created by Raw Shorts are beautiful, but they cannot be used for a professional level of work.
According to Google reviews, Raw Shorts lacks customer support services as the response from the live chat is very slow. This leads to issues that are rendered unsolved. The voice-over feature lacks the advanced quality of editing the audio. The software is way too expensive for the quality of service they provide.
If you use the free version, you will get minimum features of the software. We recommend that you use this application for making casual videos and avoid when it comes to professional video making.
To conclude this Raw Shorts review, we can say that Raw Shorts is one of the easiest software, but it is not that great. This is not a bad product for someone who has no technical background in video editing. However, someone who has professional video editing skills will not be able to use the product due to its limitations. Thus, it is not recommended for experienced users for their professional and business work.
