New year, new features! We’re well into 2019, and I hope your year started as energetic as ours did. We have been working hard to bring new updates to Wave.video, and I sincerely hope you will find these features awesome.
Here’s what’s been brewing:
- New pricing, including the Free plan
- New domain
- New free stock library – over 1.5 million assets!
- Enhanced video editing
In 2019, video is overtaking the Internet. Marketers are updating their marketing strategy making sure they add video to the must-have list of tools. As people don’t want to read as much, video is becoming the #1 form of communication.
Here at Wave.video, we want to empower everyone to start creating videos and grow their brand. We also want to make video creation as affordable as possible.
That’s why we came up with two brand new pricing plans – Free and Creator. And this might be a game changer for content creators.
What is a free plan?
The Free plan allows users to create video content for social media, blog, or any other content marketing needs. The videos created on the free plan will not be watermarked, so you can easily use them to support your brand identity.
Here’s a short breakdown of what the free plan has to offer:
- Create videos in 2 popular formats – square and landscape

The Free plan is basically for anyone who wants to create short-form video content. With the free plan, you can create video teasers for YouTube to promote your content across all social media channels, blog post promotions, intros and outros for your videos, and so much more. All of it – with the easy-to-use and FREE video editing software.
In addition to the new completely free plan, there’s also a new Creator plan. A little more advanced but still super affordable.
Who is the Creator plan for?
The Creator plan is for businesses and individuals who are just getting started with video content. If you are a content creator, personal brand, blogger/vlogger, or just an individual who wants to create personal video content for social, the Creator plan is right up your alley.
