At first, it can be a little complex to use or learn how to handle it, but after you have practice, it becomes very easy and simple. Also at the beginning, if you do not know any other program, it can be difficult to remember the different functions, operations, or buttons. You can generate different parts to later assemble without any mishap or problem, or it helps you generate complex and organic shapes in an easier way.

I work for a small company, so everyone tends to be involved in a lot of projects. This can make it difficult to book time with the leadership team to record them for company announcements or other similar needs. Vyond is the perfect solution for a video that doesn't depend on other people's schedules. For added fun, I can make the characters look like our leadership team and even borrow their voices from meetings, conference calls, or other announcements. This lets me create the illusion that our leaders are directly sharing information with new hires or individual team members without actually requiring them to take time out of their day

Pros

Autodesk Maya

  • The program is a complete product for modeling, animation, shading and rendering 3d assets for static images and animation.
  • Maya has one of the best animation tools in 3d industry. It's simple to create/edit complex animation using Time Editor, Graph Editor and etc.
  • Well known in the game and film industry. Many studios use it, so there is no problem for just hired employee to settle in.
  • It has simple(enough) python API. It's easy to create scripts and plugins. And there are lots of free or paid plugins in the internet to speed up 3d work.
  • It has good node-based workflow for procedural creation.

  • Possibly make the interface a bit more detailed in order to show the triggers on assets at all times.
  • Allow more functions to be available when your right click.
  • The ability to easily transfer from video to video that have previously been produced.

I was recently at a conference where I learned that many of my peers also use Vyond, solidifying my opinion that it is the right tool for out needs. Further more, one of our content vendors also uses it, ensuring that I will continue to use it as I believe this will facilitate our collaborations in the future

This program is great when you have no video experience! There's only a little of a learning curve to the program. In general, the user interface is great and easier than using a program like Adobe premier. It's a great resource to use as a marketer.

Vyond is just an animated video creation tool. You have to use your video content and track its performance through other means. Because it is an online tool it doesn't hog your resources or slow down any other tools that I use. It is a stand-alone product and it doesn't need to integrate with any of our other tools. It does what it does and that is all we need.

I haven’t had any issues that required me to contact their support team. However, I believe support in any product starts before you have to call for help. Vyond provides an option for priority queue when you have their professional option. This is great for folks who need things done faster, especially when businesses can’t afford any downtime. Their Live chat feature is also reassuring, because I don’t always want to spend time on the phone or on hold if their call volume is high and I need to solve an issue.

I can't say exactly which one I would recommend more, but the pros of BranchTrack are that they offer the ability to upload voicefiles which will automatically attach to each scene, saving A LOT of time. They're program is also very easy to move scenes around in and having the ability to reroute someone back to an earlier scene is nice. It also provides the user interaction vs. just watching a video. However, GoAnimate on the other hand allows you to customize background and scene layouts a little more than BranchTrack does. It's also better if you don't want the user interaction

  • Thanks to GoAnimate we can now present products and services in a more modern and engaging way. These videos are more viewed than other content. The learners love these videos which maintain a friendly atmosphere.
  • We believe that GoAnimate is the most affordable solution for creating animated videos. We definitively save money in comparison to hiring a production company for creating such videos.
