Animated videos can be easily created using PowToon

Initially when I started using the platform, the features and functionalities seemed very difficult to understand. Once I understood the same I was able to professional animated videos. The videos made looked like the ones created by an experienced professional.

Pros

- PowToon offers large number of animated templates - Graphic and character quality is good - Royalty free music and objects are available for paid version

Cons

- Much customization is not possible - Downloaded files are heavy - A little expensive

Reasons for switching to PowToon

Lumen5 cannot help you created animated videos.

A great animation cloud-based software, but kinda expensive

Excellent.

Pros

The variety of templates is one of the great features. So, I don't have to create a similar video every time; Each video is unique.

Cons

Well, the pricing. It is super high. Also, faced few issues with the Arabic language during the free trial. Could be fixed by now tho.

Reasons for switching to PowToon

I was still learning animation, so I was trying too many tools like vyond, and animaker.

Powtoons is Amazing

I have created dozens of videos for internal comms, advertising, recruiting and training. It has made my life so easy and with great reward and outcome.

Pros

This is a super simple app to create fun and vibrant communications pieces either with cartoons or video.

Cons

I think customer service could be much better. I don't think I've ever gotten ahold of a live person.

Reasons for switching to PowToon

I didn't exactly make a total switch because I still need to edit some video before dropping it in to Powtoons, but the functionality of Powtoons and its ability to drag and drop anything into the video at any time is so cool. And it has a huge database of photos, video, and other tidbits.

Powtoon

Not great they say they would be creating new content and we have had the service for 6 months with absolutely no content updates

Pros

You can put multiple layers of text on one slide and customize where it will show up.

Cons

They have absolutely zero content. They say they have marketing videos but they are only 10 seconds long and random. We no longer use this software.

Reasons for choosing PowToon

We ended up purchasing promo as well because promo has a wide range and variety of videos and music that works a lot better than Powtoon. Very disappointed in Powtoon.
