Animaker Review

My overall experience with animaker has been one with a positive surprise. Aminaker made it possible to internally create content we thought we would have needed to outsorce saving us a signficant amount in operation costs.

PROS

I have been using animaker to create whiteboard explainer videos for marketing and internal presentations. What I like the most about it so far is its ease of use. It is fairly easy to create animation videos in animaker without prior experience in the field. As such, its integration to our organisation was smooth and seamless.

CONS

What I liked the least about animaker is the fact is is only available online. Making it hard or impossible to use when/if their are interuptions to the internet connection.

Pretty good, yet too expensive for what it is

Once you get past the payment (a bad feeling that doesn't go away because you know month after month after month, on top of all your life expenses, you will have this one on top, all year long... and if you paid the whole year, well, if you're not well-off or not using it for immediate return of investment, it's just a toy that costs way too much, maybe not in the sense of "money" but in the feeling of having to pay for some software which probably you never needed in the first place. Again, that goes for 90% of the software out there, but Animaker almost takes the cake with that month vs year pricing. (again, that just shows they're overcharging at least by that 50% they can afford to "lose") It's sad that everyone's adopting that scheme, especially with AI these days, even if the 365 structure started so many years ago, at least you could still find Software that you could use for life. If there was an upgrade, ok, that was up to you to pay for it or not, but you could still use the software. Now, with everything been run on the cloud or server side, you're actually just "renting" the software, because you don't have anything from it, other than the resulting files. Other than that, we depend on their resources. Anything over $10 usd for something virtual, no matter how useful it can be, is just an example of how greedy people can be: it is just air, nothing more, there's nothing physical, nothing to manufacture. Animaker is not different, only a little greedier than others

PROS

In the realm of digital creativity, Animaker stands as a formidable ally, a versatile tool for crafting captivating 2D animations and presentations. Within its arsenal, a vast array of templates spanning various categories. But that's not all; Animaker generously furnishes an assortment of objects, characters, and props, all at your beck and call through the simple art of drag-and-drop.The praise for Animaker flows freely from its users, who laud its proficiency in swiftly and effectively assembling office presentations. Beyond the boardroom, it serves as a trusted aide in forging compelling company introduction videos. Yet, these are but two facets of Animaker's multifaceted utility.Picture this: a world where intricate product details demand elucidation. Animaker steps in, armed with potent animation prowess and an extensive character library. It empowers users to craft videos that not only engage but also imprint the essence of a brand into the minds of consumers. Whether it's the latest gadget or an innovative service, Animaker's wizardry ensures your offering is showcased in the best light.But the enchantment doesn't cease there. Animaker's versatile canvas extends to the realm of education and training. In this landscape, it becomes a torchbearer, illuminating the path to comprehension. Through images, audio, and visuals, employers fashion training materials that demystify complex concepts. The result? Clarity, the holy grail in companies grappling wit

CONS

Templates leave you wanting more, they're great but maybe you could use a few more, but maybe that's just me wanting to play around with more toys than Animaker already offers. One thing I didn't like, the pricing, although this is something that's happening with all similar software and the merciless and greedy 365 legacy... pay each year, now pay each month, if you pay the hefty price for a year it will save you this much, and if you pay by month, the greed simply shows on how much the price increases. While this happens with every software out there, like copycats of the pricing structure, Animaker seems to be a little greedier than some other options, with the lowest plan being under $13 per month... But NO! wait! that's only if you pay the full year.. . If you need to pay monthly because you can't afford that one big payment, it's going to be twice the price, or almost. $12 and cents vs $24 usd. (ouch, that doesn't show a "discount" or saving as it's presented, it just shows that the software is at least 50% overpriced) Unfortunately that's become the norm for almost every software out there, those that stand out, are the ones that don't treat their customers as suckers who don't know better.

Reason for choosing Animaker

No no no, the other way around. After using Animaker, I decided to stick with those 3 as better options. It's amazing that Runway's lowest plan costs half of what Animaker charges. Runway: Highest quality videos, scenes, anything you can imagine with stunning realism... and it costs $12 usd on the lowest plan. Animaker, which is ehm, "good" at what it does, if you're too much into toons that is, charges $24 usd, I mean, there's no contest there. I'm still checking out Invideo and Pictory, but so far, yep, they're also a lot better than animaker.

Worst Design Software Ever

I have never had so much difficulty in using a software for professional creations. I was looking for an alternative to Canva, so that I can mix and match the tools from different softwares for my creations, but this software all it it did is limit my work and make everything more difficult. Pricing is definitely a steal and customer service is terrible. It's like it depends when they are online or not to "help" you, which they really don't cause they take so long to answer, is a different person that answers and you have to start the request again.

PROS

There is nothing I liked about this software.

CONS

The editing is useless, Canva is much better and less expensive. Restricted to download my own creations and the pricing is waaay too expensive.

Animated Videos Made With Ease.

Right now, animated videos attract all kinds of consumers. The platform offers resources for creating top-notch animated commercials and promotional videos. It is direct and to the point. Despite its shortcomings, it is capable of producing a captivating animated video.

PROS

The platform has a highly intuitive user interface. Any beginner may produce engaging animation material for customers. The library has enough media to create a video in a matter of minutes. The result is phenomenal for entertainment or instructional materials.

CONS

Without a doubt, the cost is a concern. Along with expanding the functionality, the library has to grow as well. Although it still needs improvement in many areas, it is an excellent platform for producing animated videos.
