Stars Like many programs, Explaindio has some tutorials and FAQ resources for users. However, these resources are only available to those who have purchased the program--and once you’ve gained access to them, they’re very poorly organized. The 28 tutorial videos are all listed in a single page that scrolls seemingly forever with no index. Ads for other programs crowd the already lengthy page. All of the tutorials are unlisted and therefore unsearchable on Youtube. Their email support advertises a response within "24 - 72 hours", but to expect delays on the weekends. When I contacted support on a Saturday, I did not receive a response until Monday on my simple ticket and until Wednesday on my feature-related question. Considering these two were sent only 30 minutes apart, I find this fairly unreasonable, especially with the poor quality response I received.
The following tools are quite similar. I tried all of them and was satisfied. They are all easy to use, as well -- you don't need any video editing experience to put together animated video instructions. You do need to invest some time into a script and some visual elements to make these instructions appealing. The good news? You can then convert them into animated GIFs using the tools above.
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.
With Explaindio Video Creator 4.0 you’ll also get access to a market. Here you get the opportunity to buy (or sell) videos. So that you can make money by selling your own video creations made with the Explaindio software or simply save time by buying attention-grabbing, higher quality videos, motions, animations or backgrounds instead of creating yourself.
