Animoto is by far my favorite editing software for sophisticated — yet easy to produce — videos.
If you haven’t already done so, please take a look at the music video I recently produced for my son’s Christian band using Animoto’s incredibly intuitive interface. It’s in the sidebar, and at the bottom of this website if you’re viewin on a phone or tablet.
I produced this video entirely with high-definition photos and graphics I got through Google Images. (I made sure all were available for sharing — even commercially). And then I combined them with FREE stock video clips. The result, I think, is as good as any high-dollar professional video production studio or software could produce.
Some of Animoto’s features:
More than 50 stunning “themes” automatically make your photos and video fly and sweep across the screen — accompanied by a vast collection of superior production music. (Some themes and music require upgrading to a higher monthly plan, but the results are totally worth it!)
Another plus — all your videos are stored in the Animoto Cloud. This makes them ready to be shown on Facebook and elsewhere at the click of a mouse. No need to store memory-hogging MP4s on your PC.
- Make your video slideshow special with one of over 50 preformatted themes expertly crafted to fit the occasion.
- Create your first video in minutes. No video editing expertise required. Whether it’s your first or 100th video, Animoto will be there to help.
- As a result, you’ll have the power to share your video over e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and everywhere in between — right at your fingertips.
- Most of all, you can turn family photos — or those great shots from your vacation — into a YouTube-ready masterpiece!
