  • Makes training more engaging for our creativity students
  • Easy to use, so we can get the message of what they need to learn across without the constraints.
  • Adoption - we can create a video short of a concept we need to better clarify in literally minutes.
  • 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.
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.

Not surprisingly, many struggle with narrowly defining that answer. We offer that they submit a video that captures the answer, but those can be challenging for them too.

So, we use Animoto to encapsulate, in pictures, that answer for them because it's very easy for this audience to send us a few of their favorites. We have found that, once we upload those pics in Animoto and add some of the text they do share, 100% of those we send the "Animoto'd" video back to them are able to say "Yes - that's exactly who I am!"

  • 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!

If you have a really good idea, and you'd like to either ensure others value it too, Animoto is the ideal solution.

For example, you want your team to change the way they work on a certain project. Create the scenario in Animoto on how that change would create exactly the work-life they really want. Then, collect feedback as perhaps your really good idea could actually be made even better. Then, redo the video with those changes and replay it to that same audience. You'll get much better adoption from your team when you do execute that change.
