Overall Satisfaction with Vyond

Vyond allows us to take our training content and make it more exciting. I work with a lot of software, which can get really boring in a hurry. Vyond allows me to use animated characters to illustrate key concepts instead of just relying on boring PowerPoints or having the presentation be exclusively software screenshots/videos. There are a variety of characters and props to choose from, and our clients/customers really enjoy the videos since they are more entertaining to look at.
  • Easily create animated videos without a lot of learning
  • Sync up voices to characters using prerecorded voices
  • Provide a variety of characters and props for videos
  • The fact that it's on a cloud server means that sometimes the software can get clunky/slow.
  • There may be extra work involved if you have multiple characters talking in one audio file and you want them to sync their mouths with their appropriate lines.
  • Characters having multiple actions/expressions means multiple scenes, which can be very cumbersome to manage.
  • Ability to generate quality animated videos
  • Ability to share videos with colleagues
  • Ability to share content with other members of our team so they can edit or contribute as needed
  • Customers are more engaged in our training materials.
  • Team members are able to express themselves more creatively.
  • Vyond has allowed us to be more exploratory with our training content without having to rely on the same ol' formula.

Vyond is especially great for our software training videos. I am able to start by using the characters to illustrate a key concept or feature of the software, and then I can have another scene actually demonstrating how to do that in the software. Vyond allows you to integrate videos into your Vyond, so you can have your character still appear while the software is being demonstrated if you wish. Vyond is great if you don't have a lot of animation knowledge and want to get started quickly. However, if you want to fine-tune your animations, Vyond can get a little cumbersome with how many scenes are required to achieve what you want, which makes the editing more difficult.
