Quick way to explain ideas

Used as explainer for new business and to create a promo for a screenplay.

Pros

Ability to buy one-time license for a fixed fee, plus free updates. Easy to create new comic-book-like stories to explain concepts and ideas. Large selection of scenes, characters and props.

Cons

Not able to modify actions of characters beyond those shipped with product.

Reasons for Switching to Toonly

Not really a switch as much as an option. I use Toonly as an option to Doodly for simpler tasks and for an easier way to do simple animations.

Not very stunning, but Toonly can deliver a decent and personalized explainer video.

I use Toonly whenever the project I am working on requires more character poses for a target niche. Toonly truly delivers flexibility and customization.

Pros

The best part of Toonly is its wide selection of character poses even for a standard version. I also love the lipsync feature which is not available on most animations sofware.

Cons

The characters look very simple, flat and outdated. The software also lags a lot on longer (more than 1 minute) videos which can be time consuming.

Reasons for Choosing Toonly

Videoscribe is a a whiteboard video creating software. I needed colored animation software.

Toonly is a great tool for small business and Individuals who want a animation presentation

Pros

Anyone with a basic knowledge of editing can create their own animated presentation, also its the only tool in this category that I found for a one-time payment. The support is great and the team tries to improve the software with updates every few weeks. I using it to create a marketing videos for my business and also lessons videos for my digital course It is very useful and gives a low budget solution.

Cons

There is a nice selection of animations for the characters but not all the characters get all of them, and if you are interested in using a particular character it may not have the animation you need. Because all creators use the same characters, it may be not unique if they will consider to add a character creation tool it can be great. Editing the sound on the timeline may feel uncomfortable and inflexible.

My review of Toonly

Very good. I have created videos, some o which I have uploaded on the net and shared), and have not had to overcome many problems. I believe that as I get more practice, I will improve. The Facebook group that has been opened for Toonly users has proven to be very helpful, too

Pros

Creating videos with voice-over with Toonly id easy. This makes me create videos that can grab the attention of my English as Foreign Language learners (pupils in High School and teachers in Professional DEvelopment workshops I create and facilitate)

Cons

I find it difficult to get the characters to move their lips (yet I guess it is a question of practice)
