Welcome to my Create Studio Vs Create Studio Pro showdown. In this article, I will be looking at the key differences between these two versions of CreateStudio.
If you remember, I reviewed the all-new Create Studio Pro software in the last article. If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you check it out as it will give you a good idea of what this software can do.
In this article, I wanted to focus on the key differences between the two versions of Create Studio. As you will see, there are quite a few!
Now let’s get started …
Create Studio Pro Vs Create Studio – What Hasn’t Changed?
Before looking at the things that have changed, I want to talk about one important thing that did not change. And that’s pricing.
Create Studio which was launched more than 2 years ago was priced at $67. This was a one-off payment that gave you lifetime access to the software.
The exact pricing model has been used for Create Studio Pro as well. So, it’s still a one-off payment of $67 for lifetime access. There are no monthly or annual fees.
A thing to note here is that in both these versions you only get access to the standard versions of this software. If you want to get the addons, there is a subscription fee to pay.
Now that we know that pricing has not changed, let’s look at the things that have changed in the new version, Create Studio Pro.
Here’s what has changed in the upgraded version.
The first thing I noticed is the new and improved user interface. The new version has a much more polished and professional interface. Not to say that the old version was bad, but the new one just looks better.
Also, I found it to be more responsive than the older version. When working on the older version of Create Studio I always had to wait for the software to catch up with my actions. But, with the new Crete Studio Pro that is not the case, as it is much more responsive.
With the new version, I haven’t faced any lags or delays while working. So, needless to say, I am really impressed with the new user interface. It really makes the experience much more pleasant.
And I am sure you will agree with me once you try it out for yourself.
Another thing I noticed is that there are more integrations inside the media library in the new version. In the earlier version of Create Studio, there were only Pexels and Pixabay integrations.
But, in the new Create Studio Pro version, you also get access to Unsplash, Giphy, and Coverr along with Pexels and Pixabay. So, you have a lot more options to choose from when it comes to finding the right media for your project.
This is one of the best new features in my opinion. In the new version, they have added extra categories of characters. For example, the new Create Studio Pro now has bobblehead characters that were not there in the old version.
In the earlier version, it used to take a pretty long time to download assets from the cloud to the device. I am not telling you it used to take hours but, it was still a pretty long time.
However, in the new version, they have made some changes and now the download speed is much faster. The other day when trying the software I downloaded the assets in a matter of few seconds. So, this is a huge improvement.
Components and Effects
Other than the number of characters I noticed that there are just more assets in general inside Create Studio Pro. There are more animated elements, backgrounds, and transitions to choose from. So, you have a lot more options to work with, in the new version.
There are also components in Create Studio Pro which I don’t remember seeing in the old version. These components act like presets for your projects and help you get started quickly.
There is the carousel effect, typewriter effect, button, spotlight, camera pan, infinite scroll, and more inside the components section of Create Studio Pro.
Then there is the effects section. In the earlier version of Create Studio, there were effects but they were all scattered around in different places.
But, in the new Create Studio Pro version, they have all been moved to one place and it’s called the Effects section. They have also added some new effects in this section.
Some of the new effects are, glitch, green screen, clip speed, filters, color correction, blur, lens turbulence, hue rotation, and more. So, you have a lot more options to choose from when it comes to adding effects to your videos.
In the earlier version of Create Studio software if you ever wanted an additional asset you could have purchased them from inside the software using the credits system.
But, in the new version of Create Studio Pro, they have removed the credits system and you can no longer purchase additional assets from inside the software.
Now, if you want to get additional assets you will have to subscribe to the all access membership that gives you access to all the assets inside Create Studio library for a monthly payment of $37. You also get additional assets added to your account each month.
So, this in a nutshell was the main difference between Create Studio and Create Studio Pro versions. As you can see there are quite a few new features and improvements in the new version.
So, if you haven’t already upgraded to Create Studio Pro I would highly recommend that you do so. Not only because of all the new features but also because the old version may no longer be supported in the future.
By the way, I have heard that all the existing members are getting a free upgrade to the new version. So, if you are an existing member make sure to contact the Create Studio support team if you haven’t received the free upgrade yet.
If you haven’t bought the software yet then I recommend you get the new Create Studio Pro version.
