Animoto

Animoto is great for small to mid-sized business looking for control over their own video marketing. Allows someone with initiative and "scrapbooking mentality" to create professional-looking videos with ease. If you have even the smallest of marketing budgets, Animoto is perhaps the most worthwhile investment--that is, if you're able to get decent photographs or video clips to build from.

Descript

It is very much suited to extract and create any content out of long, recorded content (I use videos most often). Transcription is really decent and that is a big bonus. For people who want advanced editing, this is a too rudimentary tool.

Cons

Animoto

  • Great visual tool that lets you intelligently communicate what you are seeking to explain to your audience. More features I might suggest would be anything that makes it more interactive with the viewer in real-time.
  • For the price , it is a great deal as is.

Descript

  • Subtitling options could be more customized.
  • Accuracy in transcription can always be improved.
  • Name of some operations is nonsensical.

Animoto 9.0
Based on 1 answer
We haven't actually needed much support so that in itself says a lot about the software. It was easy to use and had great tool tips that guide you through the tool so you don't even need to reach out to support. There are help files that are there when needed, and some of these are helpful to us as well because again, we didn't have to reach out and wait for support.

Alternatives Considered

Animoto

We had invested in making our own videos using YouTube, and even Camtasia. But they were still us interpreting on behalf of our audience which took forever. Once we found Animoto, it was so much easier to upload the pics our audience would send us. From there we had a 100% positive response, that we had indeed captured what they were trying to say.

Descript

I used the most simple editing tools because I don't need anything fancier. Descript does video and text in parallel and I could choose - exactly in a word -- what I wanted to include. Having text and audio/video in parallel is its greatest strength.
