OpenShot Cloud API is priced using a SAAS model, very similar to how Amazon prices server instances. Pay just for the hours you are running the instance. Stop at anytime, with no contracts. Billing is handled automatically by Amazon at the end of the month... based on your instance hours used. Most of our competitors charge for each minute of rendered video, but that model is very expensive and difficult to reasonably scale. With OpenShot Cloud API, you have a low, flat-rate per hour, regardless of how many thousands of minutes you are rendering.
Prices start at $0.15 / instance hour (around $108/month USD if continuously running), not including Amazon EC2 server fees.
Funds from the OpenShot Cloud API are used by OpenShot Studios, LLC to develop OpenShot Video Editor, our award-winning open-source video editor. So, not only will you be editing awesome videos in the cloud, you will also be supporting an open-source project, used by people all over the world!
