Welcome to my Video Spin Blast Pro review. I found out that this new video creation software was being released, so I thought I would take a look to see what it’s all about…
UPDATE: there is a new version called Video Spin Blaster Pro+.
Product Name: Video Spin Blaster Pro
Creators: Ali Gadit, Vlad Cristian, Stoica Bogdan
Price: $37 + upsells
My Rating: Not Recommended
What is Video Spin Blaster Pro?
It is a video creation program which generates videos by combining videos and images as well as using a built-in voice generator. They say you can create a 10-minute video in 10 seconds, as well as make hundreds of unique videos from just one video.
That last point concerns me because it seems to be the same kind of idea behind article spinners that were so popular several years ago. They used to be able to fool Google by taking one article and spinning it into many variations of that article by replacing words and phrases with synonyms. But that sneaky tactic doesn’t work anymore because Google can spot that they are all essentially the same article.
So now I’m wondering how soon it will be before Google spots that all the variations of the video you create with Video Spin Blaster Pro are all essentially the same video. My guess is it won’t be too long. I could be wrong of course.
“Realistic” voice generator?
I don’t know about you, but to my ears, that voice did NOT sound totally realistic. I have seen videos on YouTube which have had computer generated voices, and they really turn me off. Okay, so this voice is a bit better than the ones I have heard before, but it’s still not 100% human-like.
I think it takes away some of your credibility if you have a computer generated voice. It’s one thing to hire a voice actor to say your parts for you, but to get a computer program to do it is the ultimate in laziness really.
A quick way to make videos?
Yes, they make it look very quick in the video above. However, just be aware that they already had the video footage of the old guy speaking at the beginning, so the time it took to record that is not included in the time it took to create the video as shown here. So you still need to record any actual real video recordings like that.
But what about the way it easily enables you to put video clips and images together to create your final video? Well, you can easily do that with Microsoft Movie Maker, which comes free with any Windows PC.
Watch out for the upsells!
I feel I need to make you aware of just how much money they are going to try to squeeze out of you. As with many products like this, you get put through a sales funnel:
So as you can see, the main product costs $37, but once you have committed to buying that you will get presented with another product called Split Blaster. I’m not sure what that is, but it doesn’t end there. After that you get offered Video Marketing Blaster for $57, then Video Lead Studio for $47, and finally Live Event Blaster for $67.
So, if you end up buying all of these products, you will pay $235. That’s more than 6 times the original price of $37.
Why don’t they just bundle it all into one product that you pay once for? Well, it’s all to do with sales tactics. Perhaps everything on offer here is indeed worth the $235 you will end up paying, but if they asked you for $235 straight away, you probably wouldn’t buy it. It would seem too expensive. But if they sold all of it to you for only $37, they might feel like they are selling it all too cheap. And the main $37 product is perhaps not enough on its own for you to make the most of it, so you need all the other bits to really make the process work. So, once you are committed to paying the $37, they are like hey, sorry, but you also need these other things to really make it work.
Why you should avoid software like this
Even if they didn’t have that sneaky sales funnel with all the upsells, I would still advise against buying software like this. As I said earlier, it seems too much like a video version of article spinning. This is not the way forward.
The best way to make videos is to learn how to make them yourself. People like to see and hear real people. Until this text-to-speech generation does sound completely like a real human, it’s best not to use it. When I search for videos on YouTube, I want to hear real people speak, because I want to know what real people think about things. You are probably the same too.
If you want something you can use for free, try Screencast-o-Matic. What I do is I record short clips with that, then using Microsoft Movie Maker to edit the clips together. Easy and free.
I hope you found my Video Spin Blast Pro review, but if you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the comments section below and I will reply as soon as I can.
All the best,
P.S. Have you seen Explaindio 3.0 yet?
