Create high resolution videos just from your browser

PROS

Intro, promo, and advertisement videos are playing an important role while creating efficient marketing campaigns. Before Renderforest we were hiring freelancers in order to create such videos. But thanks to Renderforest we managed to reduce such costs. The best side of Renderforest is the ability to create any type of video without any software installation. You can create high-resolution intro videos even from your mobile browser. Most video editing applications require high system specifications, but there is no such requirement in Renderforest. The rendering process is also super fast compared to most video editing applications.

CONS

The only weak side of Renderforest is the offline editing feature which is unavailable in Renderforest right now. Sometimes we could be in a place where there is no internet connection. My suggestion is that all editing tools would be stored in the browser cache and we could make any changes even connection was lost.

Simple, easy and straightforward website. The product offers great value for money and time

It's great value for money, saves time and allows us to keep our content slick and appealing. Before renderforest, we used to spend quite a lot in logo animations and video editing. So basically this platform is on top of the spear of our marketing and production war chest

PROS

Simple, easy and straightforward website. The product offers great value for money and time An extensive media library of commercially licensed music, audios, pictures and footage User friendly, with a smooth interface for both mobile and desktop. Literally anyone can use it No need to install it, it's cloud based and secure. Saves storage space. It has the same functionality for different operating systems, which means I can do the same things and have access to same same tools on both my IOS and Android devices. The free account doesn't force you to get a premium account. You can basically tryout all the templates without having to pay first. Though the free account can only export up to 3 minutes, it doesn't restrict on the number of projects you can work on.

CONS

There are limited customization options for the premade templates. There is no API integration It doesn't have an offline version

Reason for choosing Renderforest

In my own opinion Renderforest has got some trendy, slick and smooth templates. It's easy to use and even the free or trail version basically gives a great feel for the whole experience. The premium is also inexpensive.

A Fine Logo Animation Website

I had an above average experience though, but I didn't actually use the end product because I wasn't satisfied with the result. I believe they could do better in the area of clear cut features and exclusive trial usage.

PROS

Renderforest has got loads of beautiful templates to choose from, which could even fit perfectly into the kind of logo animation project you may have in mind.

CONS

The usage after importing a template doesn't seem pretty straightforward, though a good starter tour was included. The watermark on the trial version is not cool. An exclusive trial period should be considered to give users reasons to want to come back to the service.

Reasons for switching to Renderforest

I just needed to create a simple logo unveiling animation, and I thought I didn't need a complete production program like Filmora.

Vendor Response

Thanks for your feedback! Your words mean so much to us. Please feel free to reach out at support@renderforest.com to get assistance if you are facing difficulties while using the platform. As for the watermark, some core things are changed on the platform, you can just check the pricing page to see what's been changed. Looking forward to the pleasure of seeing you at Renderforest again. Sincerely, Renderforest Team

Professional Video Logo Reveals make for really Engaging Videography

Renderforest has really helped me to overcome some major hurdles with regards to professional presentation of our business to stakeholders. The features that it has allowed me to use has made it possible for me to present designs to stakeholders that are more than just impressive, they actually look like they were designed by a qualified designer (which they were) but I made it my own through Renderforest.

PROS

I absolutely loved how easy it was to get right what I wanted out of Renderforest. The sheer amount of template available to do anything from a logo reveal to an explainer video are mind boggling. One of my favourite features of the software is the ability to keep tweaking the end result online before having to commit to use a credit to download the rendered final result. This goes a long way to making sure you are happy with your purchase!

CONS

I don't like the subscription based model because I don't use the software everyday. I would prefer to pay for each video individually when I need it. This would make the platform a lot more accessible to me.

Vendor Response

Hey dear Rick. Thanks for your positive review. We are always ready to work hard to make your experience better on our website. Hope you'll get more benefits using our platform.
