We’re using Plainly to allow our users to create club keys and event invites. We decided on Plainly because we can quickly import an After Effects project, and the integration with their API was easy. It would take us ages to build a video creating feature in UltraViolet, so integrating with Plainly was a no-brainer and it paid off so far.

We've used Plainly to automate the production of a large NFT collection. It holds a crucial part within our automation pipeline where it takes our large database, puts it through our After Effects template and magically exports mp4s. We literally had team members saying "It's like magic". Plainly team was amazing helping us bring everything to production, it's obvious that customer satisfaction is super important to them. To anyone who wants to automate video production, we recommend Plainly over any other alternative on the market!

The Plainly team did a great job supporting our event in our crunch time! Their clear documentation was easy to follow and the UI was easy to implement into our workflow. The original idea was to use a service to generate static images with our parameters, however, after talking with Plainly, the only logical thing to do is make a set of short videos. Our minimal effort paid off tenfold.
