Can Be Helpful

2019-03-19

However, there can be a real benefit in using it to explain services, promote a blog article, etc.

Pros

This software does allow you to easily create animated videos that you can share on social media, YouTube, etc.

Cons

Some of the animations may look cheesy or be slightly off brand because of these limitations.

Great product for some niches!

2019-09-27

Pros

Animaker allows you to try most of its features within a free trial, so when we were getting a subscription we knew what we're getting into :) It has great functionality and makes it very easy to create your own personalised marketing campaign or even a whole course of e-learning.

Cons

And as for marketing manager, it is really crucial to be able to access it from a small laptop on the go.

Animaker Review

2021-01-10

Aminaker made it possible to internally create content we thought we would have needed to outsorce saving us a signficant amount in operation costs.

Pros

I have been using animaker to create whiteboard explainer videos for marketing and internal presentations.

Cons

What I liked the least about animaker is the fact is is only available online. Making it hard or impossible to use when/if their are interuptions to the internet connection.

Edo Modun

Simple and nice on-line software solution for simple and nice animations

2017-10-19

This is a good solution for any animation that You need (for Your YOUTUBE channel, business presentation, promotional video,...).

Pros

There are plenty of options regarding design and animations (nice quantity of elements for Your creativity), If needed, extra media elements can be uploaded (photos, music, voice over).

Cons

Whole software is based on obsolete FLASH technology. Today all new web-browsers by default start with FLASH blocked so this is really strange decision. Have problems working with FIREFOX/WATERFOX. Guidelines are missing and grid can't solve that. Loading can be slow sometimes.

My experience with Animaker

2019-04-11

I have managed to produce amazing video content with Animaker and any time I encountered a problem or a bug, Animaker team was right there and right available to fix all the problems for me.

Pros

You can animate everything and you can manage the content any way you like.

Cons

It would also be great if we could import a video as well and manage it.

Animaker gives everything Powtoon offers... for a better price

2017-11-18

Animaker makes it easy to create a flashy, engaging presentation that attracts young and old viewers alike.

Pros

Unlike Powtoon, Animaker allows users to actually export their video without upgrading, although it will include a watermark.

Cons

Transitions aren't seamless - they can be a bit disorienting at times.

Poor product; worse business

2018-09-27

Animaker's product and customer service was so weak I ended up going elsewhere to produce my marketing video.

Pros

Some of the sample videos look amazing.

Cons

They didn't email a billing reminder until after the fact and refused my refund (by not responding to my support requests).

Waste of time !!!

2020-10-26

To sum it up, this app is expensive, time consuming and with a whole lot of restrictions.

Pros

I’m still waiting for my video to be exported.

Cons

It’s a complete waste of time..Unlike other softwares I’ve used, this took me more than a minute literally to edit each scene and I had over 25 scenes!

Incredibly low-quality and slow flash-based tool

2020-06-18

Very bad.

Pros

Kind of easy to handle (but must be because Animaker gives you almost no option to adjust the scenes to your needs.

Cons

Therefor 24h support probably their biggest marketing lie Videos look very unprofessional, very childish icons Animaker runs with flash player with make it very slow and annoying to work with Scenes can only be full seconds long.

Great software!

2019-07-09

Pros

It's interface is very user friendly, almost like setting up a ppt presentation.

Cons

The only thing I would improve is the animation voices, e.g. when I wanna add a voice to read over a text I wrote it still sounds like a computer generated voice.

Useful, I found the TTS (text to speech) very useful. Whenever I needed support Bob was right there and assisted and guided me with ease. Great that I was able to use Grammarly.

Cons

In some places Animaker isn't intuitive thus needed a few pointers here and there.
