"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.

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

"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.

"Ease of use and huge library makes this one of the best animation programs out there"

What do you like best?

This is so easy to use it is silly. You can quickly create animations with a really wide range of characters, scenes, backgrounds and props with little or no knowledge of animation

What do you dislike?

Slow to render previews and export hi-res videos. Also it would be better if you could scrub backwards and forwards in the timeline instead of constantly having to render it in the preview window

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to create animated characters to provide information about a product, and have the ability to import pre-recorded audio this is for you. Our next step is to create animations on a green background and make videos with live characters talking to the animated characters using green screen keying in Final Cut Pro

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

We use it to create short animated characters which are then inserted into videos and/or eLearning courses

"Vyond is a Great Video Marketing Resource for Users of All Skill Levels!"

What do you like best?

This is such a great tool to create quality videos for marketing purposes in a decently short amount of time. If anything, the endless character and template customizations will be what sucks you in for the longest amount of time.

What do you dislike?

As an alternative to trying to record quality voiceovers for your videos yourself, Vyond gives you the option to use a robot recording, but it definitely sounds robotic...too much so to be used in a video you'd like taken seriously in my opinion. Also, you have to purchase one of the higher subscripton levels to even get rid of their watermark in your videos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try! It's a lot of fun and you won't be disappointed. There are endless customizations available, and you'll surely find some great options.

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

We wanted to post more videos, but storyboarding, budgeting, planning, setting up, filming, and editing a live action video isn't always possible. Vyond is a great alternative for producing and posting engaging video content without going through the hassle of the filming process.

"Easy Animations"

What do you like best?

creating videos was always a great barrier for me, it requires lots of time and skill to create a beautiful videos not to mention the cost of the software. later i came across goanimate, it's a simple online platform that helps you create animated videos without any knowledge in animations required. there are a lot of premade slides available for you to choose from and you can animate those slides with simple clicks of a button. we can even edit the template like change the colours according to ones need to make the video unique. you can even upload and use your own images to make an impact on the videos. when it comes to audio there are tons of options available as well, you could add audio by recording your sound or by text to speech which is pretty good. you can also make the character in the video lipsync with the text to make it look attractive. its very easy to learn the program and the tutorials provided in the websites are enough to make you an expert on goanimate. exporting the video is also easy, once done with editing you can export the video in the format you want which changes according to ones subscription plan. its also easy to edit completed videos later if you need.

What do you dislike?

the pricing of the software isn't cheap, even the basic plan is so limited that they even put watermark on your video and output resolution is limited.;

Recommendations to others considering the product

they offer a free trial to test the service, i advise you to take this opportunity to test it.

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

creating videos easily, this might be one of the easiest ways out there to create animated videos.

"That's just fun making professional animated videos with GoAnimate"

What do you like best?

Rich set of templates - GoAnimate comes with a large set of customizable templates, which is a collection of preanimated assets. We can change anything: the colors, the backdrop. We can add a camera zoom, customize the transition, and adjust any scene on the timeline. We can also import our own images.

Characters - We definitively like the custom character creator which allows to create any custom character from any existing one. We can customize any part: the head, the eyes, the mouth, the clothes… That’s just fun playing with the characters. And we can make the characters talk!

Audio - GoAnimate allows us to add voices in different ways: micro recording, upload a file, text-to-speech. The text-to-speech feature comes with multiple languages. The French voices work pretty well for short texts. This is definitively time saving. GoAnimate comes with a library of music tracks. The number of tracks depends of the subscription plan. Of course, we can also add music and sound effects in uploading our own files.

Export - Once the video is completed, we only need to save it and export it. The output options depend of the subscription plan.

Update - It’s great to be able to edit/update a video at anytime.

What do you dislike?

As GoAnimate is a web service, it requires you to have a good Internet bandwidth or you could experience some slowness issues when editing the video.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We believe that GoAnimate is the most affordable solution for creating animated videos. We definitively save money in comparison to hiring a production company for creating such video.

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

An image is worth a thousand words, so let’s imagine the impact of a video when you want to explain an idea. That’s definitively a more engaging way. The issue is that the cost of a professionally produced video will start at €2,000 depending on its length. This is definitively a significant cost for a small company, if we needed to create multiple short animated videos for our business. Video can demonstrate products and services and explain concepts. Some concepts can sometimes be boring and they need to be explained; if we want to hold the interest of the employees or customers, the video is the better choice. We also develop eLearning modules and they include a mix of lessons, interactions and videos. We include short animated videos or whiteboards in eLearning modules developed with the authoring tool iSpring Suite. These videos are a way to offer more engaging courses and to maintain the learners interest and to improve the user experience. We looked through different sites, and GoAnimate definitively seems to be the better choice for ease of use, a complete set of powerful features and the ability to customize everything, and the right mix of cost. GoAnimate lets us make amazing animated videos so easily and quickly. It's just fun creating videos with GoAnimate!

"Easy Video maker, but also slightly limited on features"

What do you like best?

Videos are easy to create, the movement portion is easy to use

What do you dislike?

Some specific items that I needed were just not available, such as very specific images or certain backgrounds, or some backgrounds you can't change

Recommendations to others considering the product

more options for background image. Having the user add / removed background images, for example, the processes (add/delete)

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

More videos in our business and catch the users attention. It's more creative and different, but most people just don't like animation either.

"Go animate was great!"

What do you like best?

I liked the ease of use and the amount of props that they had for GoAnimate. I was able to create so many different kinds of videos because of the diversity of items they had in the program. I videos ranging from business explainer videos to education videos.

What do you dislike?

Although it was very easy to use this came at a price. I wish I could've had more control when stringing clips together or even adding in large files. It never caused me any problems but it was something that I wished they had.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Their price is a bit steep but if you know what you want then this tool out there is definitely worth it! The other thing too, is that you really don't need to be a graphic designer in order to make some really awesome looking videos. I couldn't tell you how many times I got compliments on the videos that I created. With the ease of use and tons of props you can take your project from idea to live in no time at all.

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

I solved the problem of being able to convey my business message with everyone. I saw the benefit of everyone instantly being able to grasp what my business was and how they could benefit from my service. The other problem that it solved was that it made educating people fun. I would have fun creating my educational videos.

"Create animation video for presentation"

What do you like best?

I am pretty new to this app. I used this couple times for presentation. It is a great attention grabber. I have used it to create both long and short videos. I also used this to create a video for a presentation which turned out to be a huge success!

What do you dislike?

The process of creating the video is very very long. I feel like the process should be shorter if they have some more template to start with, but they definitely give you a lot of controls. You can choose a movement for an animated character and make a lot of minor adjustment to make it perfect which I think is one of the reason it takes so long to make one single video

Recommendations to others considering the product

It depends on what you are looking for. If you want some short original animated clip, then this is for you. If you want something that is smoother and with fine graphics, then this might not be what you are looking for.

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

Use it as an attention grabberfor presentations. Once the video is played, the audiences are immediately hooked

"So easy to use and so much impact!"

What do you like best?

When we wanted to make videos in the past we always had to rely on very expensive agencies, and then when we wanted to change the video, we had to go and pay agency fees again.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I really dislike. Maybe that it takes some time getting used to the software and there really only is one style you can use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it out yourself, and make sure to make a sript before you get started making your video. Because opportunities are endless and otherwise you will end up make a 40 min. video instead of a 40 second one.

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

Less agency fees, more video marketing focus, more impact on social media.

"Fun, Easy, and Entertaining"

What do you like best?

I like the ease with which you can design a video. I also like the character customization, wealth of props, and ability to add in outside files. Adding narration and music is easy, and greatly enhances the viewers' experience.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything. This is a quality product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product can't be beat when it comes to ease-of-use and quality. Fun, engaging videos can be quickly created for e-learning projects and training courses. When used in conjunction with eLearning Modules and other learning materials, this provides a positive modern learning experience.

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

We are able to present entertaining client scenarios and interactions with Vyond, which would be difficult to otherwise create. It helps give context to learners about client interactions and helps model conversations that would otherwise be difficult to provide.

"Great tool for creative marketing"

What do you like best?

The possibilities are nearly endless with GoAnimate. There are so many character models and scenarios included so that anything you cook up can be created. The quality is really first class.

What do you dislike?

The computer generated voices aren't really useful. I had to have my team record voice overs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try this out. They have affordable packages if you want to just dip your toe in the software. Go in with a storyboard in mind and watch as it comes to life. Make sure you have time to spare because once you start playing around, you might not want to stop!

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

We needed to market a new tool but in an engaging and creative way. This tool allowed us to showcase our concept with visual representations. I think this helped sell the concept better than text representations.

"Fun tool that's easy to use"

What do you like best?

The interface makes it pretty easy to produce something fun and professional looking really quickly. Not a huge learning curve to get started, lots of presets to get you going and offers customizations for more advanced users. Video rendering and sharing is pretty quick, too, for an online based editing system.

What do you dislike?

Available toolset is simplistic. Fine tuning is difficult Managing and navigating videos is difficult. Interface does not lend itself well to collaborative work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for creating engaging videos. Also great if you have vocals and no time to do live camera work or if working with a group that wants to stay off-camera. We use it a lot for videos that will be delivered in multiple languages because it's easy to swap out audio and re-render the video in new language quickly; easy to change the looks of characters pretty quickly, too. Great for videos where the message stays the same, but you want to tweak aspects of it for different demographics.

What do you like best?

After a quick tutorial and a few trial and error runs, we were able to figure out how to create great videos for social media. The program is fairly easy to use and other departments within our company are asking how our marketing department is creating such high-quality video content.

What do you dislike?

The program is a tad slow at times and will lock the computers down making us have to restart. There are also props and character functions that we need or would like to see added.

"Bare bones"

What do you like best?

The learning curve is fast for goanimate. I was ready to fully create a video after about an hour of noodling around.

What do you dislike?

Because the software is so bare bones, it can be limiting. For example, you can make a prop in a video rotate up to 180 degrees, but no more for some reason.

It also drives me nuts that when you set up a motion path for one prop, you can't view it unless you click on the prop. That makes it really hard to have multiple props move in conjunction with each other

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

We wanted to be able to create polished looking videos without hiring a production team. Done.

"Animated Videos are a Breeze!"

What do you like best?

Had to create an animated video within a very short timeframe. As a graphic designer with no animation experience, I was able to create an animated informational video for use on our website. The interface is clear and the ability to add voice over and effects is a definite plus. The fact that we can import our own graphics is huge and puts this software above the rest.

What do you dislike?

I would like a but more control from a timeline perspective. It would be nice if there was a basic view and an advanced view - this way, you could really fine tune each transition and better align transitions/animations with audio.

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

"Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

The program is so powerful, but very easy to use. Created videos within hours of purchase. Short learning curve. Lots of options included along with ability upload your own backgrounds and props. Customize characters to match your needs. Easily add audio and sync mouth movements.

What do you dislike?

Would like to see them add options for the characters to face fully sideways to simulate conversations. Also would like for characters to have the option of facing backwards so simulate more interactions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the free trial that is offered. View the tutorials. This program has given us the ability to easily create engaging videos for a training department. Nothing but positive feedback on these videos.

"Perfect for animated videos"

What do you like best?

GoAnimate is an intuitive, easy-to-use animated video creator. It takes a few weeks to get the hang of the nuances of the product, but essentially, is a very easy product to use.

What do you dislike?

Some of the functionality for uploading outside screenshots, videos, music (and editing each of those components) is a bit clunky.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a few weeks to learn the intricacies, but once you do, you'll be able to create something truly unique.
