Creative, Innovative, Impressive

That's impressive! Amazing! Beautiful! Outstanding! The first service which helped me to create, visualize and implement my ideas, but finally I started to create my own videos, with my face and voice, but Renderforest taught me how to present my ideas into logical, laconic, beautiful, rational and clear way. It is the best tool for creating short cartoon videos I have ever used. The main thing which makes this company unique is that they help to make your videos inspiring, influential, motivational, encouraging, meaningful and valuable. Your videos matters. Renderforest is born to inspire. It is really precious.

Pros
A really powerful tool to visualize and present your ideas. You can create any explanation cartoon, business logo presentation, educational cartoon, commercials, whatever you like! Besides, you can create a landing page which will suit your cartoons. Well, it is really inspiring and impressive. And you can use the native music tracks or your own tracks. You can add your own pictures, quotes or statements. You can motivate your public, engage your customers, or capture the attention of your pupils, students or learners! You can choose any plot for you cartoon, any colors, any characters. That's the thing! The effortless, natural, effective, rational and impressive way to share your amazing ideas with the world! Just unleash your fantasy and keep moving forward. The only disadvantage is that price plan policies are a little bit misleading.

Cons
Price plans are a little bit misleading. For instance, if you are not a huge, international company but yet you want to create some beautiful videos for you friends without watermarks, but quite a small number of videos (30 videos per month or fewer), you probably don't need expensive plans, but Renderforest doesn't really explain what kind of price plan to choose in this case. Is it marketing of something? A little bit discouraging... If you need only 1 video daily...

RENDERFOREST: THE BEST ANIMATION VIDEOS MAKER

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: GetApp

It was one of my best decision to enroll with RENDERFOREST. From day 1 I started creating professional marketing videos which helped me a lot improving my financial situation.

Pros
Renderforest super easy user interface provides tons of services in one place. If you are looking to promote your brand just go for it. It's just INCREDIBLE. Top class explainer videos,2D or 3D animation,animated logos for businesses, website hosting plans and much much more. If you still need support, their customer care support is truly world class especially Lusi. Just forget about the huge digital marketing costs, Renderforest is the best way to promote your brand without any kind of knowledge about animation.

Cons
There are no cons in Renderforest. I create awesome animation videos without any kind of knowledge as well as their world class customer care support are always there for me.

Frustrating. Presumably, I can add voice and animation, but I don't know how.

Pros
There is a free version. Unless I learn more about it, there are no pros to using it.

Cons
Okay, I have just started, so maybe after a while my view will change; however, for now this product is practically useless for me. I have been looking for a good free replacement for Xtranormal since it went down almost a decade ago. I want something that will allow my young students to make an animated story. I saw Renderforest praised on neutral sites like Quora, so I thought I'd give it a try. The front page is busy and uses ambiguous words, making it hard to know where to go. Once I got that figured out, I made a three-panel short. Then I had to wait for it to get processed. While I waited (over five minutes, but you don't have to wait around, since Renderforest sends an e-mail when the processing is finished), I tried to learn about the site. The guide tour (voice bubbles) was unclear, confusing and inadequate. At the end, there was a note that a tutorial would explain more for those of us who didn't understand. But I couldn't find the tutorial "down below." A lot of reviews praise the staff support. I can't, because I can't find any contact information. The faq doesn't answer nitty-gritty questions. Well, after a while, I checked my e-mail. The three-panel story I had made did not exist: The first two panels were gone. When I tried to edit (clicking on 'edit'), I couldn't (see how to) add any panels. There was a button for left or right placement, but I don't know what that means: When I clicked on it, I didn't see the panel move, nor did I see the

To create animations and intros on the go, easy with Renderforest!

Used weekly for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-12-26
Review Source: Capterra

Renderforest is used by us to cerate short video advertisements and intros for various campaigns or for business proof of concept projects and presentations, so far besides a slightly high cost, it has been a great platform.

Pros
Stunning! The best platform online to convert my ideas into into consistent, abbreviated and delightful video animations. The primary reason which makes it special is that they help to make your recordings moving, compelling, inspirational and empowering, to make them significant and important as well. - Super easy interface to operate and compatible with various devices as everything happens online. - A variety of beautiful templates available, suitable for all kinds of uses. - Smooth animations effects, sleek and modern, and the rendering is fast. - Good library of background music for intros. - Landing pages can also be designed. - Inspiration is the best thing Renderforest provides, if you are feeling down, lack of ideas, then that is the place to be.

Cons
- Plans are a little misleading, the number of intros are limited in each plan and the lower priced plans also have limited quality for each intro. - Some templates have restrictions in word length or pictures or sizes which aren't really necessary from a design or space perspective. - No fine tuning available. - Low quality previews, they should be a little higher quality for better visualization. - No 4K video renders available, they have to keep up with the times.
