“When we uploaded a video to chopcast, it created auto-clips that overlapped 70-80% with ones we manually picked before, except this was done in minutes!"

“Game changer. We just upload our longer videos and turn them into social media-savvy content in just a few clicks. Subtitles and all!”

"Working with chopcast we could post-produce microcontent of the highlights from sessions we've recorded. It saved us so much time.
