We use it in standard trainings for creators. We also use it for exceptions training where a certain concept is either more difficult for some creators to grasp, or too nascent yet and needs a more focused visual explanation.

screenflow

When training others to use a software application, I find this is amazingly helpful to accomplish using screenflow. The application allows me to video what I am doing in the application while explaining it in details. There are other uses of course, one that I found was to capture myself talking through students' research papers/thesis and explain where changes need to be made. Of course, MS Word has the tracking changes option and a professor can go through sentence by sentence - the downfall of this is that students #1 - do not always understand what is being suggested as we all cut back on words when typed out versus spoken. #2 - students do not always read the added comments thoroughly. Viewers watch the video and listen to a voice quicker than reading remarks. The viewing and voice, in my opinion, are the greatest part of the end product provided to viewers. This tool can assist anyone's work that trains others...be it industry or educational fields.

Pros

Animoto

  • Helps any audience Tell Their Story: A handful of still pics can be uploaded, then in just a few clicks you can add music, choose a theme, tweak as needed: done!
  • Visually augments the creative process of defining exactly the message marketing is looking to capture. While words can mean different things to different people, visuals are a very effective communication tool. Animoto lets you test, change, test again and learn so much more about your audience in the process.
  • Our "Who I Am" use of Animoto that drove a higher rate of engagement with our millennial audience that we're challenged with defining the answer to that question.
  • Endless applications in every division: Product Engineering, who want to design their GoToMarket strategy, HR who would use it in a Promotion/Employee Awards program or Training Departments.

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.

screenflow

  • The on-screen text options are limited and inferior to competitors
  • Transitions aren't as easy to use as they could be. They need to be modified in the preferences pane, which is strange.
  • Green screen settings can be fiddly; but this is really splitting hairs. It's hard to tell what's their fault and what's mine.

It works well and fits into my workflow. The tools are much easier and straightforward to work with. Other video editing tools like Adobe Premier or Final Cut Pro are simply too complicated for this type of task.

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.

screenflow

Screenflow offers a clean interface and intuitive tools like I have not seen across other video editing products, often times because of the many complexities that are delivered with video editing software. I have used many many video editing tools in my past and this one seemed to be a perfect blend of simple must-have features, combined with a little taste of the advanced tools that you expect to see in higher-end products like Aftereffects.

Return on Investment

Animoto

  • Positive as it is so simple to use, and even helps discover where a creative student would benefit far more with a more focused visual.
  • Positive as it is - seriously easy to drop in content and create a video short on any topic, in literally minutes!

screenflow

  • This allows me to make a presentation once and then distribute it widely. This increases efficiency and effectiveness.
  • It allows me to demonstrate apps and concepts, not just talk about them. This allows clients to grasp concepts much more readily.
