Piktochart
Piktochart is great for designing infographics that require detailed information to be presented in a visually pleasing way. The fact that infographics are automatically split into segments, or 'blocks' helps with designing professional looking content quickly. There is also a wide range of templates that can be used so there's no need to start from scratch.

Powtoon
Powtoon is a very capable suite of tools that help a developer create training videos that look way better than they should. I've used it to create fun, attention-getting commercials for new topics, I've used it to enhance what would otherwise be boring step-by-step tutorials, and I've used it to create all manner of "Explainer videos" for all kinds of topics - this is where it EXCELS! In my opinion, its biggest limitations are limits on imported video (max of 90 seconds), which mean that you have to do a lot of extra work to break up and import anything of substantive length. And because it presents your personal library of imported images and audio ONLY sequentially, it's VERY LIMITED in the re-usability of those assets - it's way faster to just import a new instance of an image and audio than to try to find it in your library.

Cons
Piktochart
  • When opening a file, it would be better if it opened in a new tab

Powtoon
  • Only one timeline to edit from which sometimes makes it difficult to select objects.
  • Animations can only be set to ½ seconds. Sometimes more precise amounts of time are needed.
  • Although there are a bunch of different actions you can place on a character, it's almost impossible to create a custom action within the program.

I have never needed the support feature. As I mentioned, everything was intuitive to me however I have taught myself Adobe, Final Cut and iMovie so most of these programs became intuitive.

Alternatives Considered
Piktochart
Piktochart is cheaper than Canva, and better for building long-form infographics that require a large amount of data to be presented visually. It is also much easier to learn for new team members than Pixlr

Powtoon
Powtoon has the advantage over traditional video editing software in terms of the library of characters and elements that can be easily dragged and dropped onto the canvas. Powtoon is easier to use and has a more intuitive user interface than Vyond.

Powtoon
  • I am not saying it was a bad investment but I did not get the return I expected.
  • I considerably increased the number of clients after using this platform.
  • The price for which you pay to use its functions unlimitedly is acceptable and adapts to the use that you want to give it.
