Easy to use

What do you like best?

this is one of the easiest ways to create videos to promote your business without any prior knowledge in video editing or animations. the tool is web-based so you can access it from anywhere around the globe from any device irrespective of the operating system which is pretty cool. the templates are really great, there are a lot of premade templates available which we can edit by changing colours and transitions or even change the camera zoom for our convenience. the greatest thing is that we can add our own image to make it unique and appealing. there are also a great collection of characters from which you can choose to make the animations. the character animations are also premade and animations can be added with just a click of the button. the character can also made talk with lipsync which is another cool thing about animate. when it comes to the audio part there are several ways to add audio to the video such as by recording through a microphone or text to speech which supports multiple languages. for background sound there is a collection of music availble which you can add to the video easily.

What do you dislike?

the program needs a lot of bandwidth and internet speed is an important factor when coming to using animate. the pricing isn't cheap and not everyone can afford it even thou there are multiple plans available. the basic plan even thou paid got goanimattelogo watermarked in it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is a great way to create videos if you dont know animations , thou it isn't cheap i highly recommend you to take their free trial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

easy, clean

What do you like best?

the platform is quite easy to use, no animation or design skills are needed to get going with the platform. the best thing is that it's web-based, so no matter where you are or which operating system you can access your work. they have few themes and pr-made templates that help you a lot when coming to animation. the selection of characters and templates are wide enough to make your video stand out from the rest and you could find almost everything you needed to make your video there. there are options to create a folder so that you can sort your videos according to work and access them easily. you can also preview the video before exporting and it gives multiple formats for you to export. yo,u can also link your online video sharing platform accounts and upload your videos directly. they also allow you to use your own images and logos which is really useful.

What do you dislike?

the basic plan cost's $300 a year and it comes with watermarked videos, which is really annoying. the timeline is quite bad that you have to edit them over and over to remove bad rendering.

Recommendations to others considering the product

they are easy to use and affordable, give them a try.

Very slow, sneaky pricing

What do you like best?

Intuitive to use, good library of templates and characters if you are promoting marketing services

What do you dislike?

The product plans are very sneaky. Once you are signed up to a $39/month plan you quickly realize that this is completely useless, as they put their company logo on your video. You are FORCED TO UPGRADE to more than double $89/month.

This makes you feel like you have just fallen prey to the worst scheme ever.

They should be warning people VERY LOUD AND CLEAR as I would never expect to have any marketing logo on my videos once I'm paying for a plan, no matter how it is priced.

It's a good platform otherwise, but this has sent us off to a bad start.

If your video is more than 1 minute long this platform gets EXTREMELY slow and freezes up often, even with the best of computers (I have a Mac with 16GB RAM, same issues at work windows 10 PC).

I cancelled and I'm looking for an offline/download solution for my videos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are serious about making videos efficiently this is not the right solution for you, unless you are very patient and have a lot of time. I tried all browsers and Chrome is the best one to use (on a Mac), but even this is very slow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Marketing videos to promote marketing services. You really can't do much more than that with a very limited library of scenes.

Make professional videos in no time

What do you like best?

I have been using GoAnimate for almost 4 years. The absolute best part of the program is how cost effectively it allows me to create original content for my clients. I don't believe there is a better solution for quality animated/graphic video creation without hiring a production company (and paying for it!)

GoAnimate is intuitive and I have had many colleagues try to use it and pick it up in no time. At the same time, the end result is a truly professional looking product.

What do you dislike?

Currently, there is nothing to dislike. Over the past 4 years, I have seen vast improvement with the technology and user interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

GoAnimate may be more complex than some other video animation websites but this in turn allows the user to produce much nicer content. If you are considering GoAnimate, do know that your own capabilities when it comes to script writing, story telling, and voiceover/music are going to make a big difference in your end result. Luckily, GoAnimate does offer help with these items through partner 3rd-party vendors (as needed).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My clients wanted fun and educational video content and through GoAnimate I am able to provide this to them without breaking the bank. GoAnimate is a simple yet sophisticated cloud-based software that allows me to create very customized and high level products without needing any external resources.

I began using GoAnimate in a new capacity a couple of months ago, which is for external content marketing. So far, my colleagues and customers love what we're doing.

Make beautiful presentations with Go Animate

What do you like best?

What I mostly enjoy of Go Animate is its easiness to use: you can start by adding a funny character by only dragging and dropping it into your work space (all of them are engaging!!); then you can add some text by using the same dynamics (clicking and dropping). And it´s really outstanding that you can also add bits of music by only clicking the upper panel of the software. To my mind, Go Animate is a really complete and affordable tool, that you can´t miss if you need to create presentations for school or work consistently.

What do you dislike?

As with other similar software (like Powtoon) characters are a bit simplistic. It would be great that Go Animate went the extra mile and turned this software into a more complex animation tool, but that might be outside the scope of Go Animate´s mission and vision. Besides this, I don´t think I have any other complaints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As I said before, this tool lets you come up with powerful presentations for school and work, and you can make them in only a few minutes. Here´s a piece of advice: if, for any reason, you´re trying to make up your mind between Go Animate and Powtoon, then let me make the choice easier for you: they´re basically the same (very similar functionalities), so either will work for you!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Go Animate has helped me deliver messages to my audiences in an engaging way. I think that an image is worth a thousand words, and, with a little help of my Go Animate software, I can deliver any type of message to my target audiences by using short clips of entertaining and engaging animations! This is the dream of any business!

Get animated with your communications

What do you like best?

Ever wish that you could create a cartoon of your workplace, complete with animated versions of senior leaders or other co-workers, and set it to music? GoAnimate is the perfect tool to achieve your animation dreams and at a fraction of the cost associated with paying some other company to do it for you. Learning how to use the software is a snap, although you should be careful - it's very addicting and you could find yourself spending hours of playing around instead of getting other work done.

What do you dislike?

Once you have created your animation with the software, it can be a little tricky working with the download interface to get your video into a format you can load on a SharePoint site or other method of display. Very minor point; otherwise, everything else is pretty intuitive to figure out on your own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are plenty of web-based companies that will offer to put together cartoon-based videos to assist your communications and training programs. These vendors often charge thousands of dollars for each video and may limit the amount of times you can use them. GoAnimate allows you to create as many cartoon videos as you can stomach for only a few hundred dollars a year. Cost benefit analysis - use GoAnimate!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GoAnimate has been a real breakthrough for creating "burst" communications and training; when you only have about five minutes of someone's attention to get a message through. The characters and visuals are bright, colorful and funny, making employees look forward to the next "episode" of whatever your communication/training plan has in store for them.
