Especially on Facebook, since these tend to be nearly 10x shorter than YouTube. Tasty by BuzzFeed is a great example of how short videos can do tremendously well on Facebook. Their key to success? They are short, entertaining, and suck the viewer in from the very first second. And even though they are not using animation, it would only make sense to learn from their strategy. After all, who doesn’t want to have 30 million followers on Facebook?
This program was no cakewalk to work with. Its interface is crowded and layered, with important tools hidden behind others. With Explaindio, I felt as if every almost every feature needed its own tutorial. Good UI is dependent on natural movements and logical sequences, which made Explaindio frustrating to work with. It's the sort of program you could learn to work and be effective with eventually, but you'll need a lot of practice.

Unfortunately, most of the web pages and the ads for animation software is deceptive, misleading, or outright false. All of them advertise “free” in one form or another but as a commenter above noted, any usable forms aren’t actually free at all, they require a monthly subscription. I’d prefer to buy the software as opposed to a monthly fee but any of the packages that advertise “free” and then want to charge for a usable product are automatically stricken from my list of possibilities and I also let clients know the same.

Many popular series first appear animated as an OVA, and later grow to become television series or movies. Tenchi Muyo!, for example, began as an OVA but went on to spawn several TV series, three movies, and numerous other spin-offs. Producers make other OVA releases as sequels, side stories, music-video collections, or bonus episodes that continue existing as television series or films, such as Love Hina Again and Wolf's Rain.
When you first open Explaindio, the interface is overwhelming. The menu bar along the top contains around 20 different buttons. The timeline is positioned just underneath this, where you can add scenes or modify media. Lastly, the canvas and editing panel is at the bottom of the screen. Note that this area will change depending on what you are working on.
