Cons
  • 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.Kim D.Read the full review

Pros
Filters! The filters are fantastic. There are a good variety that are not your typical cheap program filters. There are filters for a variety of business types and projects. It makes your video project look crisp and different than the competition.

Cons
While the price is decent, for the version that supports 1080p, I think it's expensive. Also, when you aren't using it every day, it makes the note rate use project more expensive.

Pros
Clear instructions on how to create your own video. App is very user friendly and does not take a long time to figure out. The graphics are clear and the videos come out looking as if you paid a few hundred dollars to have them done.

Wish the subscription pricing was a little cheaper. Also wish there were more visualizer options and logo in middle is a bit small

Renderforest is a great app for creating and editing videos

Pros
It's easy to use, has great tools, lots of royalty-free footage you can use, and you can't beat the price!

Cons
It's not going to have all of the features that a more expensive program would have, but you can't really expect all of that for the super low price.

Awesome, But Way Too Expensive

Used monthly for free trial

Review Source: Capterra

Great experience, just leaves your wallet sad.

Pros
The quality of the content you can create on Renderforest is top notch but buying a software that allows you to create similar content is cheaper in the long run. Other apps and sites in the same category are similar prices (monthly charges through subscriptions) but considering this can be outsourced or just done yourself for much less money I personally feel the price is too high for these services. If you have the money I highly recommend Renderforest because it does create beautiful high quality content that is customizable and the site and app are easy to use, but like I said, there are cheaper options for the same quality.

Cons
I think they need more templates but that is just nit picking, they actually have a good selection if you're creating once a week content. As someone that creates and releases content daily though, there needs to be more templates.

We like Renderforest, especially for a small business it's really cost efficient and delivers great quality for the price it has

Pros
We use this tool to create animations, promo videos, and infographics. It works great, easy to use and time efficient

Cons
The conversion of the video (to preview) takes a couple of minutes, it would be better if you could preview directly the video and then export for maybe better quality preview

Other than the pricing, the software is excellent and has many different options to use to create your content.

Pros
There are many different options for creating visual content such as cartoon-like, 3d options and whiteboard creations. It has a great variety of characters and content, easy to use and fun to make and watch.

Cons
It was too expensive for us to continue using, as a non-profit although the software was great for the level of content we wanted to create the subscription costs were out of our remit.

Easy, flashy video templates anyone can use

Used occasionally for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Fast, easy animation with only a few clicks. RenderForest is simple enough for any user to make creative content that will dazzle viewers and spice up presentations and videos.

Pros
RenderForest is a video template platform that lets users make flashy animations and graphics for video content and presentations, and honestly, it does a pretty great job. It focuses on drag and drop customization, and offers thousands of templates to chose from. No matter the style or tone you need, there is something for you. The platform is also enhanced by a pretty good selection of music to put under and synchronize animation. This aspect of the templates is really quite nice, and saves a lot of time to focus on the other creative steps. Perhaps the best part of RenderForest is the blog and support. For novice users, video and animation is daunting, but the site has tons of information to get up and running. Tutorials and project ideas are put out on a regular basis, so there is always something new to learn. Overall, RenderForest is a good first step for users who want to make creative video, or add some pizazz to content they are already making.

Cons
Renderforest seems expensive given the use case and template selection. the cost for a short intro or outro animation is a bit much, especially considering how many other users are likely using the same template. For infrequent content creators, the subscription is certainly expensive, but if you need frequent, flexible animations, the price is probably fine.

The pros of this site are that it allows you to get a nice quality video without worrying if someone is going to take advantage of you too bad, and you get the results when you need them without haggling the creator to make the deadline.

Cons
The only con I see at the moment is the price, For those who look for services to help us, it's normally because we are independent business people and you need a coupon to make it affordable.

Costly but powerfull online video creating tool.

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Renderforest is a good online tool for you if you can afford it. Its editing capability is not that complex but they provide stock image and videos which is a good and time-saving option.

Pros
I needed to create a whiteboard animation for my tutorial purpose but didn't found any tool that does that quickly. Renderforest helped me to get my work done quickly. It is so easy that took me almost an hour to produce this video. It has a template named whiteboard and lots of tutorials oh how to build one. Whiteboard animation tool kit is what I really need but I like the intro video. It is simple and royalty free with music, which is hard to found these days. Like the simplicity and their trail plan really workes.

Cons
The price point is really high for me as it is a DIY tool. And stock image/video quality is not that vast, you can use some video editing software for this purpose.

Response from Renderforest


Dear Debjit, thank you much for your super kind words. What concerns to the pricing terms, we'll take it count of course and will try to make our platform more affordable for you in the future. Thanks for using Renderforest. :)

Pros
For a very low price, this program is comprised of high quality animation and templates. We can use this video to upload on YouTube and broadcast on our social media venues. I like the fact that it also offers a 3D feature. You don’t have to be a techie to create a powerful video because Renderforest is the way to go.

Cons
I can’t complain because haven’t encountered any concerns with this program, plus it’s a one-time price and offers so many templates and graphics to choose from.
