Free Trial FAQs

The free trial is available for 14 days from the day you sign up. You'll have access to the tool's full features so you can see whether it's right for you.

We take data privacy very seriously here at Near-Life and we'll NEVER share your details  with third parties. When you sign up for a free trial, you'll receive regular email communications to help you get started. You can opt out at any time.

Of course! You can book a demo before or after you've started your free trial - we're always on hand to help you get the most out of our platform. 

A lot of our clients find the demos incredibly beneficial, but if you'd rather get stuck in and start creating your first interactive video, please do go ahead - here's a link to our free trial page

It might be for some people, but not here at Near-Life. Our demos are delivered by our specialist product experts, whose sole objective is to help you understand how Near-Life works, so you can see whether or not our platform is right for you. 

They're not carefully scripted pitches - far from it. We aren't fans of the hard sell; we don't believe it's necessary when your product speaks for itself. Instead, we tailor our demos to show you the functionality you're interested in, the use cases you have in mind and the end results you're looking to achieve.

This also means we won't hassle you after your demo - if you're not interested, we'll wish you the best and part ways. 

We believe enormously in the power of interactive video, but we understand our product won't be for everyone. And that's okay.

Absolutely! It makes sense to invite members of your team who are involved in the decision-making process, or who will be using the platform to create interactive content. 

Near-Life FAQs

No, our software is all cloud-based and accessed via your browser. You can use Near-Life anywhere, any time, and don’t need to download or update any of the software – you will always have the most up-to-date version.

Yes - you will receive access to the Near-Life Academy as soon as you begin a free trial. It has a variety of resources to help guide you through creating your own interactive content. 

No, you don't have to produce your own content to use the authoring tool.

You can use the slide feature in CREATOR, which allows you to build your own custom slides in your chosen colours without leaving the platform, so you can create an interactive presentation quickly and easily. 

Alternatively, you'll have access to our animated demo videos within CREATOR, so you can get to grips with the platform and create your own interactive video without having to produce your own content. 

However, beyond this, you will need your own content to use Near-Life. Our existing customers use a range of tools - like PowerPoint, Canva and Vyond - and their own video footage to quickly and easily create engaging media for their interactive videos.

Depending on the scale and complexity of the project, you may wish to commission production or design experts to help. Near-Life™ also teams up with partners around the world to support content production, so get in touch with our team if you'd like some help in making this happen.

No, we don’t have a limit on the amount of projects you can create

With Near-Life™ CREATOR, it’s easy to share your content. You can do this directly with a link we give you, and via a SCORM or xAPI embed code. Alternatively, you can embed your interactive content on your website and share from there - like you would with any other video content.

You don't need a subscription for the free trial, but if you do go on to upgrade your account, Near-Life™ CREATOR subscriptions are available on an annual or monthly basis with payment made in advance.

If you stop your subscription during the period you’ve paid for, your access to the authoring tool will simply end when that period finishes.

You'll be in good company...
