I started using Construct 2 in 2013 for a game I had to make at work. I haven't touched it much since.
After seeing Construct 3 had been released I fired up the demo to see how it handles video now. It seems to do okay. I have a lot of cutscenes I need to display over the game (while disabling game controls as they play). When a video pops up, you can pick an option, and then either another video plays or it cuts back to the game.
I have a few questions before I bite the bullet and purchase it:
- Is it able to handle a lot of video? I plan on using hundreds of clips. Will it eventually crumble under the weight of itself?
- Is the MP4 / OGV / WEBM thing still an issue? To my knowledge, all modern browsers play MP4s now.
- Does Construct 3 handle video any better than 2?
Apart from that, I think it meets all of my needs.
