Even for a beginner like me it was simple and fun to create videos. The price is also pretty decent for what it does.

This offers many options for customizing at a relatively low price. There are many templates to choose and help someone with little video-making experience get started.

A great animation cloud-based software, but kinda expensive

Reviewed 12 days ago

Excellent.

Pros

The variety of templates is one of the great features. So, I don't have to create a similar video every time; Each video is unique.

Cons

Well, the pricing. It is super high. Also, faced few issues with the Arabic language during the free trial. Could be fixed by now tho.

My favorite presentation software

Reviewed 4 years ago

We make a lot of marketing videos, and this software makes it very easy to throw together a high-quality presentation very quickly, saving time and money in design work.

Pros

This is my go-to presentation creation software, far better than Power-Point slides. It is clear they are constantly improving their platform with new features and updates appearing regularly in the system, and I've watched over the years how the platform has continued to improve. I've not been able to find anything comparable in price and features on the market.

Cons

Occasionally there is a delay in the uploading of content, likely processing time for information to communicate between servers. Also, I wish there were an improvement on the way to render/download a mp4 file. Currently it renders it on the server and sends an email to download. I wish there were just a simple render/download button available on the program.

Expected A Lot But Disappointed

Reviewed 3 years ago

If you are somebody who is moderately gifted/skillful in animation or you are committed to the learning curve demanded of Powtoon it is a great, and I could see it as being a really fun, animation marketing platform.

Pros

Using Powtoon a marketer can, at an affordable price, tell the story behind their company and their product in such a way that it comes alive and captivates the viewer. The animation becomes real and pulls the viewer in. It is a well constructed and professional tool. Besides conveying a story in a powerful way, Powtoon also imparts a feeling of professionalism. It shows the viewer that you as a company, as a product creator, cares and takes pride in that which you wish to sell/impart. It sends of message of creativity and above-and-beyond pride in your product.

Cons

Although I will be the first to admit that I am not tech savvy, nevertheless there are many products on the market that are made for people like myself, so much so that people are often amazed at how much tech I'm able to navigate with so little aptitude. However, Powtoon was not one of them. When I first discovered Powtoon I was excited, when I first logged-in to Powtoon I was revved up to start creating....

Makes creating just-in-time learning quick and easy

Reviewed 2 years ago

We've had a great experience with Powtoon, and have continually opted in to be early adopters for their new features. Their customer service is fantastic, and the chat-bot allows you to have your questions answered quickly.

Pros

It has a very low learning curve. Once you know what you are trying to capture, the software is incredibly intuitive at helping you make your content visually appealing to your end users. They also continually make updates that enhance the creator's experience, including additional templates and new functionality.

Cons

There's not really anything to improve- it meets our needs for providing just-in-time learning content. We are able to customize as much or as little as we want, add sound, add proprietary images, and then download in a format that makes it easy to share.

A Fun and Creative Way to Make Impactful Explainer Videos

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, it's a well-run company and the support is excellent. It's a fun product to learn and use and it really allows you to be quite creative in your presentations.

Pros

They're continually evolving their product and that's what makes it so great. They keep finding ways to make it faster and easy to make explainer videos. They have an outstanding library of tools and elements you can use to really create outstanding videos. They have excellent templates to start with so you don't have to start with just a blank design canvas. Their support team is outstanding -- definitely one of the best that I've dealt with.

Cons

Since I don't use it daily, as I do with other apps, sometimes it takes a while to remember how to do things. You can't always find the design elements you need. It can get quite expensive if you want access to more monthly exports, storage, and customization options.

I love how the presentations are, although it is not as fast to learn how to use it as I expected.

Reviewed 4 years ago

what most took advantage of this application was the use of storyboard because I did not have much knowledge in making animations of this type.

Pros

- It has very nice templates and the icons, images and shapes look very modern. - I can use it for free, with some limitations of course. - the elements on the screen are very well organized and have guidelines to correctly place what you want to show. - allows you to share presentations or videos through popular social networks and download them in various formats depending on the type of account,...

Cons

- In spite of the tutorials and help it is not so easy to use it the first time, you have to dedicate a considerable time in learning how to make animations, if you are looking for something to make animated videos quickly this application or is for you. - the free account only allows videos or presentations with a maximum duration of 3 minutes and pro and agency accounts are quite expensive. - he does not have options of collaboration with other people for the edition.

Great Value Product

Reviewed 2 years ago

Really helpful and very versatile. We had a great deal which made it a no brainer.

Pros

I like that it has lots of built in templates I can use as starters. I really like the explainer video templates. I use this for marketing, social media, paid campaigns, and internal customer support training.

Cons

I wish I could apply branding colors to a template without having to change every element. Then I could flip templates into production-ready products that much faster.

Powtoon helped me in making Animated videos in less time, specially when I really need a video urgently. I always use this tool to create an animated video quickly. It's Easy and Fast. Also it is sometime very expensive to hire a professional for this work, so powtoon helps the Newbies to do this by there selfs.

The video can be made in 7-10 minutes and you don't have to hire a Graphic Designer or a Professional for this work.

A fun way to get students engaged

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have had my students use PowToons to create a visual representation of text. I have also had them use it as a visual aid for a speech. In both situations, it was very entertaining. The students were engaged completing the assignment and their classmates were engaged when watching their peers present.

Pros

I love anything that will grab my students' attention. I especially love it when it's something I can have them use to capture the attention of their classmates. I really like that this is flashy and doesn't require coding or graphic design knowledge to make a fun and professional presentation.

Cons

It's hard to explain to students that they can't use everything they can see. I completely understand that a company would want people to see what they could have for a price, but it's frustrating for students to see all of these really cool features and not be able to touch them.

Powtoon has made animation possible for everyday video needs.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have been able to add some video animation that I didn't possess prior to using Powtoon which has helped me create a higher level of video production results at a reasonable cost.

Pros

I like that I can easily produce animated videos for myself and clients without technically being a "video animator" on more complex software. Oftentimes, I only need a portion of a video to be animated or need a clip of animated typography, which I can now easily accomplish on Powtoon to later insert into my overall video creation.

Cons

There are some fine-tune controls that are lacking in the software, like setting timing in less than one-second increments.

Worth the investment, just a couple of functions needed

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've been using Powtoon business since 2015, very satisfied with the product except for the mentioned cons above. Anyone with a basic knowledge about video editing can use it, the platform is straight forward, pick an animation template, and start editing it or create your own from scratch.

Pros

-If you are used to any video software, Powtoon will be easy for you to use. -A good library of scenes, props, sounds, text, sounds, shapes images... -Export rendering time takes a couple of minutes. -Good support: I just used it twice but the answers were fast and clear. -Good pricing.

Cons

-No sound time line: if we insert a sound/music it plays on all the animation! -The animation templates library is not often updated. -The whole platform can be better: here, I'am talking about the navigation between the sections of the sites, for exemple, even as a paid member and connected to the account, I still see the pricing table and the front page etc, a bit confusing at first, but that's not a big deal.

Enhance Videos

It is a fine product. Not hard to use, and for those that use it a lot would probably not mind the price.

Pros

This is an easy way to make a video look better. I am not a fan of all the types of graphics certain people use. But adding just simple features makes videos look a lot better and help users stay more engaged.

Cons

The price! Obviously I wish everything could just be free. I simply do not use it enough to actually pay monthly for it. I am not a huge fan of subscription type services. I would rather have a one time buy.

Upgrade Your Presentation with Powtoon

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have just started using Powtoon to create microlearning videos for e-learning clients. Also, I discovered that I can easily upload my Powtoon videos to different platforms, such as YouTube, social media outlets, Kaltura, with ease.

Pros

Powtoon is easy to use and does not require any expertise. This software provides templates and an interface that can be customized with images, voice-overs and videos. Since I create training content, Powtoon has an array of training and explainer video templates to choose from.

Cons

Powtoon's plan and pricing is expensive and does not offer a per user discount. Also, the editing tools are limited. For example, there is no perimeter or tool to align or center images or text when editing video slides.

This is great to build a scenario for eLearning

I've used it in 3-4 projects to show a scenario of a conversation and to teach problem solving.

Pros

The fact that this free to build a 1 minute illustrated scenario is amazing. Even if you are using it to create a Minimally Viable Candidate to test the scenario in learning. Powtoon makes it incredibly simple to drag in characters and add text to audio.

Cons

The enterprise plan for pricing scared my clients away but you can see how powerful this software is when you realize how much time and MONEY it saves a professional illustrator / animator (that's 2 people in some departments)

SO EASY!!!!

Reviewed a year ago

It's a very nice software and helps me create daily content for my college and my own youtube channel. It is simple to use which helps in better efficiency and save time for other stuff. This software will make your life better but they could work on their pricing and features available in the free version.

Pros

It is very easy to use and gets a daily content creator's job done. As a Youtuber, I can say that it doesn't require a lot of experience in video editing. I have used high-end softwares in the past but this gets my basic video editing job done. It has a lot of preloaded effects and transitions. Great for content creation and basic animations.

Cons

There isn't really a lot of customization available on this software. Also, I was using the paid version and it is pretty expensive for a person who doesn't make any money through his/her content. Many people can't pay for softwares when they're starting.

Pow toon needs to innovate

Reviewed 5 days ago

Due to its ease of use it is a very good tool and my experience with the software has been very good.

Pros

It is a very good software to make video marketing or educational videos, extremely easy to use and in relation to price and benefits it has a lot of quality. With it you can make animations without having previous experience, you just need to drag and drop and that's it. The 2d and whiteboard animations as well as the transitions will make you love it. It will save you a lot of time editing and creating content.

Cons

I think basically what I don't like is that you have to pay a bit of a price to be able to personalize your branded content. That if you put it on a scale, freelancers or people who start creating content may not be able to afford it. In addition to the fact that Pow Toon has not had an update for a long time, to put it in a big way, and it is lagging behind software like Create Studio.

It is fairly simple to use. If you've ever used MS Powerpoint, Powtoons should give you no trouble.
