Drawbacks of using kinemaster
- Watermark on free videos
The main disadvantage is if you edit videos using kine master free version then there will be a watermark present on the video showing that this video is made with kinemaster and if you want to remove the watermark on the video then you obviously need to purchase the premium subscription.
- Ads are present in free app
Another disadvantage is that when you will be using the free version of the app then there will be several ads you will see in between when you are using the app which will hurt your user experience.
- Expensive subscription price
Another disadvantage is that it can be expensive.
There is no perpetual license you can purchase but you can purchase the yearly subscription which will cost you around 11000 per year in Indian currency or you can purchase a monthly subscription which is 1500 rupees.
11000 rupees is expensive because if we compare this pricing with other video editing softwares like filmora go which is another video editing apps you can use for mobile phones that has similar features you get in kinemaster, even the price of filmora go is lesser than kinemaster and in fact you can get the perpetual license of filmora desktop version under 7000 rupees where you can do a lot more cool things in filmora as compared to kinemaster.
