I’ve seen all the video marketing stats and, yet, the numbers never cease to amaze me. I mean, I never thought video could take off how it has, but I am loving it. It is such a great tool for marketers of all sizes, especially the smaller businesses and brands. Anyway, I really love lists like these because you, as you know, you can never have too many tools to make a variety of several different types of videos.I have tried Powtoon and Renderforest and really like them. But I look forward to trying more on this list but would love to add another one here, if that’s cool. I’ve been using slide.ly/promo and they have footage that you can choose from. They have a ton of stuff including animated clips too. Thanks again for this great list.
OVAs originated during the early 1980s. As the VCR became a widespread fixture in Japanese homes, the Japanese anime industry grew to behemoth proportions. Demand for anime became massive, so much so that consumers would willingly go directly to video stores to buy new animation outright. While people in the United States use the phrase "direct-to-video" as a pejorative for works that could not make it onto television or movie screens, in Japan the demand was so great that direct-to-video became a necessity. Many popular and influential series such as Bubblegum Crisis (1987–1991) and Tenchi Muyo! (1992–2005) were released directly to video as OVAs.
That's why I'm writing these reviews, complete with screenshots from the time I've spent actually using the software. With Explaindio, I've spent several days trying the program on for size. I've attempted to use almost every feature I could find and even contacted their customer service via email to learn more about the support for the program (read more about this in "Reasons Behind My Review & Ratings", or in the "Using Media > Visuals" section).
However, in 2000 and later, a new OVA trend began. Producers released many TV series without normal broadcasts of all of the episodes—but releasing some episodes on the DVD release of the series. Examples of this include the DVD-only 25th episode of Love Hina, while several episodes of the Oh My Goddess TV series are DVD-only. In addition, the final episode of Excel Saga was offered only as an OVA, mostly due to content issues that would have made TV broadcast impossible. In these cases the series as a whole cannot be called an OVA, though certain episodes are. This trend is becoming quite common, and furthermore, many recent OVA series pre-broadcast the episodes and release the DVD with unedited and better quality, along with revised animations—thus further blurring the boundary between TV and video anime.
For starters, unlike many of the other animation makers out there, Moovly Studio has a 30-day Free Trial available. You can sign up here to get started right away with creating your animated videos. Moovly Studio has many unique graphical libraries with over 500,000 videos, images and sounds in different styles, all free for you to use in your animations.
​Each item in a scene takes up one row on the timeline. The gray bar is how long the media is animated for and can be dragged along the timeline to change when it appears on the screen. The order each media item appears in vertically is the order in which appears to be stacked (i.e. topmost items are the most forward and visible), but the arrangement of the gray bars determines which elements animate and appear first.
Explaindio advertises several main features: the ability to create animated videos, multiple animation styles (explainer, whiteboard, cartoon, etc), 2D and 3D graphics integration, a library of free media, and the tools you need to put it all together. In my opinion, it doesn't live up to everything it advertises. While you can create animated videos and there're plenty of tools to get you there, the program fails to provide a fair amount of free material, especially when it comes to 3D and audio. The user is forced to look elsewhere or buy additional resources in order to effectively use the program.

I've made animated videos before. PowToon is definitely the simplest tool to use. The learning curve is so little that it took me minutes to fully understand it but still I was able to make the video which was as good as on any other Desktop based software. Having used it extensively, now I prefer PowToon videos over my usual marketing presentations.

If you need a patient to consider a new medical device so they can get the best treatment for them, you need the ability to explain complex anatomy, conditions and tools in the least time-consuming manner.
