The Website is great and the Videos are fairly easy to generate and create. I used to use Renderforest but have since moved onto other competitors. The BIGGEST problem i have is the MASSIVE, MASSIVE difference between Yearly and Monthly subscriptions, Yearly its 7.99 USD a month, if you switch to monthly the same package is 24.99 a month, that is more than triple in price...The yearly package is great for people that will use the service constantly, but for guys that just need the odd video here and there its just not viable in my opinion. I wish them luck, but they lost me as a client when they got greedy.
  • Easy to use
  • nice variety
  • HUGE difference between Yearly and Monthly Subscriptions
  • Alternatives out there FAR cheaper
At the price point it is only viable for people who will generate videos on a weekly / monthly basis.

I've used Renderforest to create digital media videos for music that our team creates. We had a few audio tracks that we wanted to post on YouTube and Renderforest made it easy to immediately get started with a cool and fun video for the song without knowing any video editing skills.
  • Ease of creation of videos with music or other audio
  • Syncs music videos to audio
  • Provides a nice and easy wizard to get started
  • Have additional video concepts that can be chosen
  • Can't think of anything else, the product is amazing
If you want a turnkey video solution that syncs to your audio files and looks cool, Renderforest is a great solution. Depending on the length of the video it may cost a bit more, but it's worth the cost. I have not tried logo and website functionality but will look at it if I need it in the future. If you want something completely custom and tailored to your exact needs it may not be best suited.

Renderforest Video is used across our organisation in different functional departments. The public relations and marketing departments use it to create great, awe inspiring presentations and explainer videos for clients, as well as our own employees. The research and development department uses it to showcase progress on projects across our domain to the rest of the company. Renderforest Video takes the effort out of creating amazing, engaging video content and puts it in the hands of normal people like myself. We are able to put together emergency presentations and content heavy videos within half the time that was previously needed.
  • Very easy and self-explanatory GUI
  • Massive variety of templates and toolkits
  • Competitive pricing and storage options
  • Availability of commercial music to use
  • "Pay per Product" pricing is extremely high for a single video, effectively encouraging subscription only, which isn't a great way to promote growth.
  • A better way to visualise the final product on different devices and sizes could be devised
  • Well Suited
    • Conveying company growth and progress to employees
    • Explaining how products work
    • Explaining how to use products (as a users manual)
    • Introducing employees to new workflows and IT systems
    • Pitching ideas to investors
    • Creating visual portfolio maps and growth paths for departments
  • Less Appropriate
    • Presenting financial figures to shareholders
    • For content that requires a lot of focus on specific details for extended periods of time

  • Customer service was fast.
  • Very helpful to fix my request.
  • Cutting edge intro videos.
  • Allow font editing for 1-time purchasers (Currently unavailable without monthly subscription as far as I could see).

We used Renderforest to create an intro for our new YouTube show.
  • Communication.
  • Customer Service.
  • Accessibility.
  • I have not experienced any downsides, yet. However, I've only used the product once.
I used Renderforest to create an intro for my new YouTube show. I had made an error while cropping a logo. Customer service answered me immediately and was tremendously understanding and proactive. They fixed the error I had made and sent me back my finished product within minutes. I will definitely be using them again.

It is very simple, convenient, fast, and has many styles to choose from.
It is suitable for various needs, whether for commercial or academic purposes.
However, some templates have more restrictions on their use, such as the number of words in the title, the number of pictures, the size restrictions, and the cost of rendering. But generally speaking, Renderforest is very suitable for the majority of users, especially for small businesses that need high efficiency and low cost, which is a good choice.
  • Clean interface, easy to understand, easy to operate, simple options.
  • Beautiful template, suitable for all kinds of users.
  • The animation effect is smooth and the rendering is fast.
  • Uploading video is slow, processing time and rendering video are often jammed.
  • Some templates have more restrictions, such as the number of words in the title, the number of pictures, the size of pictures and so on.
  • Prices for individual users are not very friendly.
Some specific scenarios where Renderforest is well suited: Business speeches, promotional meetings, product presentations, academic exchanges, classroom presentations, personal presentations, exhibitions of works.

Less appropriate: Serious meetings, memorials, political meetings, seminars

We have found Renderforest to be very quick and effective in creating Logo Reveals for our various business verticals. The ready selection of video footage and sound effects available ease up the task of creating a video for our marketing needs.
Being a photographer, I wanted a video representation of my business and my studio which I was providing to rent. Renderforest had the footage and effects that I had in mind, and I was able to get a nice logo reveal that also depicted my brand beautifully. Even though I do some video editing myself, the money/time spent if I did it myself would have been much higher than what I am spending on Renderforest.
  • Quick to create
  • Wide range of design choices
  • Good library of background music
  • Limited by what the project provides
  • Cannot fine tune like you can with more advanced software
It is best for Logo Reveals and short videos, and usable in most scenarios where you do not have your own footage / have trouble creating it. Good for explainers/informative videos to be generated instantly. Not particularly suited for long videos where you would have large number of elements or want to add you own footage and tweak minute aspects.

Firstly, when only Videomaker was available I used Renderforest for it. I was very satisfied with the quality of videos they make. Now they created Logomaker and Web-Page Creator which are great tools. I use now web page creator for 2 projects. Hope it will work soon. Renderforest is one of the few digital products that I am ready to pay for.
  • Web-Pages
  • Animations maker
  • Logo animations
  • Logomaker could be improved and more personalized
Nowadays making simple videos require huge costs, which is not affordable by small businesses. Renderforest makes life of small businesses easier and gives chance to be more or less on the same level as big companies.

I am in charge of our social media team, and we make and edit videos on a weekly basis. Renderforest is an effective tool for us and makes the video editing part of our day-to-day work a lot easier.
  • Templates
  • Music / audio
  • Efficiency
  • Price
  • More flexible packages for students
  • More cinematic templates
Renderforest is well-suited for my job.

Instant and simple logo maker. For animation work that requires very tight deadlines, I suggest using Renderforest.
  • A lot of template choices will greatly help build and adjust the theme you want.
  • The user interface is very easy, with simple steps. You don't even need an expert to solve your video animation problem.
  • For the logo animation section, maybe a very detailed version could be made, for example changing the direction of the animation, its movements, or even the position of the logo or writing.
Good for some light animation video or logos, and can be learned quickly. Many campuses or even companies could use software like this. Without experts, even colleagues will be amazed to see how good and quick the process and results are. I would recommend this for colleagues who need a glimpse of video animations for personal or perhaps business purposes, which they want all to be fast.

We recently developed an awesome software solution for surveying and monitoring services and had to create a short intro video of our software solution during the GA launch. This was the first time we needed such service and so had contacted several vendors. Unsatisfied, I Googled, used many other online tools and finally found Renderforest. It was just great and solved my problem in a couple of hours! I sent the draft video to my management and team..... they loved it!
  • Easy and simple interface
  • Compliments your creativity to get more out of it
  • Flexible and affordable pricing
  • Provides many themes/templates and music to work with
  • Allow more customization in available templates like resizing aligning text boxes and image placeholders and max character count.
  • Allow music timing to be adjusted as per slides
  • Allow instant single slide play and review instead of the whole video, especially when small localized changes are made.
Best for intro videos, explaner videos, and infographics videos.

I used Renderforest to make my personal video gift and also it is a great instrument to create a video intro to my YouTube blog. I know that I can achieve similar effects with Adobe After Effects - but to study that program and motion design would take months. I cannot wait, my time is very precious. So in order to gain time and get a perfect result I used Renderforest and I am happy with the result.

I would recommend Rendeforest to my friends and customers. It's a great opportunity to create motion design and personal video intros in minutes.
  • Custom design for every video scene.
  • You can use hundreds of templates, for sure you can find one to fit your needs.
  • HD quality of Renderforest videos.
  • I would love to have more designed templates with typography and motion design like After Effects.
  • Would be nice to add not only text or photo, but also video fragments (to the typography templates).
I like the typography style of video intro in Renderforest. I also like the motion design for logos (there are a lot of nice designs on the site). I would love to give a big thanks to all the creators and developers of Renderforest. I couldn't discover all designs and scenarios available, but between those I found I am very satisfied.

I used it for personal use.

Creating a simple, yet aesthetically pleasing slideshow using Renderforest was easy and fun! The result was fun, beautiful and even if I wasn't a design professional, I think I could have figured it out rather quickly. I would definitely use it again to make more slideshows in the future.
  • User Interface simplicity
  • Seamless uploading of images
  • Great templates
  • More options in the image editing space (cropping)
It is great for both business and personal projects - where you want to make a presentation of some sort.

I was looking for an online promotion video maker when I found Renderforest through Google. I am the owner and the only employee of my company, so I am the only one using it. It is a great tool for video-making. Fun and easy to use, I have been enjoying the time I have spent on the website, working on my very first promotional video. I had read a few good reviews online about the service, and the experience I have reflects all the reviews I came across. Because of a minor technical issue, I contacted the customer service of Renderforest, and they replied to me very promptly.
  • User-friendly
  • Good pricing
  • Great customer service
  • I would like to be able to see the preview of my videos directly from my profile without having to "Download" it every time.
  • It would be good to be able to watch a high quality preview of the videos.
  • The screenshots/images that are uploaded appear in bad quality, so it is hard to make sure they will look good in the final video.
Renderforest is great for promotional videos of small businesses that are just starting. It is easy to use, and they offer good pricing. I also appreciate that they don't offer only monthly subscriptions like most online video-making softwares, but also single video export, which suits my case perfectly. I hope they will soon offer more scene templates.

Renderforest is being used by my art business. It allows us creative beings to get on with being creative while Renderforest supports, by making videos easier to upload and use straight away. The reason I like Renderforest is due to its simplicity and effectiveness for getting a video done when you need it without the hassle.
  • Simplicity
  • Perfect to use.
  • Great for beginners..
  • Easy to move around the website and find what you need without being overly complex.
  • More plans.
  • 6 months subscriptions.
  • More codes and offers.
If you want an introduction video fast and you are in a hurry, Renderforest is the app to use, without any hesitation. I am rather new to YouTube videos and promotion videos and Renderforest allowed me to progress further and so it is perfect if you are a beginner or a novice.

I use Renderforest to make clean introductions for social media videos that are used for my business. It addresses the goal of this wellness community standing out among others as a reliable resource for health information. Renderforest is specifically used in social media for making high quality video effects that are simple and cost effective to produce.
  • Easy to use.
  • Strong design aesthetic.
  • Cost effective.
  • More options.
  • More customization.
  • Marketing assistance.
For businesses that use videos, especially for social media this is useful. In the event that you do not use video production for your business it is less appropriate.

Renderforest is great. I use it for the intro videos of my YouTube Channel. It is very simple to use and the output is amazing. It makes your work faster and you do not have to to have much experience in video editing. I recommend it because it is a smart tool.

  • Add more templates based on technology
  • Give the opportunity to change the position of text in the templates
  • Zoom in/zoom out the logo based on the scene

We use Renderforest across the entire organization to advertise initiatives, events, and even as a presentation tool.
  • presenations
  • commercials
  • advertisments
  • more cartoons
  • less pill based medical themes
  • more customization within the themes
I wouldn't use it to create a commercial or anything for a fortune 500 company, but for all midsize companies like the one I work for, Renderforest is perfect for everything it does and sets out to do. It's simple and easy to use, yet the creations always look advanced and professional.

As a tech person for my church, with little video background, I was nervous when asked to make a video showcasing our ministries to those not familiar with what we do. I imagined difficult storyboard sessions, a long hard video editing process and only mediocre results. That's when I discovered Renderforest. The examples were impressive, the customization options were immense, and IT WAS EASY! This is now my go-to spot for any video related work.
  • Selection of quality video templates
  • Customization of those templates
  • Ease of use in their interface
  • It would be nice to have the ability to customize uploaded media, such as apply filters to images
This product is perfect for those that need a quality video but doesn't have a professional budget or videographer available. Spending a few hours, anyone can end up with a great looking video.

I have used Renderforest for myself as I am a full-time YouTube content creator and was looking to jazz up my channel. They have everything I was looking for in making a perfect Intro for my videos.
  • A broad range of tools
  • Fantastic quality at affordable prices
  • Customer support has a very quick response time
  • Could add more music options
  • Be able to see a money conversion added instead of prices in dollars
  • Discount for returning customers

I wanted to set up an intro video for my Facebook live broadcasts, but I'm no graphic designer. But Renderforest made it easy to put a 7 second intro together by putting my logo into their templates. I was able to choose my custom colours, add a sound track, and boom.... it was done! So easy and looks really professional. I decided to purchase that clip to remove the watermark so my clients just see my branding. Works great for me, so I highly recommend others try it! It's free if you're happy to have the watermark so really you have nothing to lose by giving it a go.
  • Great templates with interesting action
  • Selection of music clips or you can add your own
  • Even if you haven't got a logo you can still create something really professional just with your company name and tag line.
  • I would have liked to have more options for the fonts
Get for those like me who don't have the skilled to make exciting graphics.

Amazing. It helped me to show my services and product without using external consultancy and without wasting my money. I used it to promote a new service and helps people to book anytime and everywhere. I like it so much and I think I am going to use it in future.
  • Efficiency
  • Visual

Renderforest is an efficient and easy-to-use presentation platform to create video, slideshow or any visual presentation. For me, it saves time and resources yet creating a dynamic and high caliber presentation for your creative needs. User-friendly and easy to navigate even for first-time users. I suggest any manager use it, especially for presentations.
