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.

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.


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.
Using Adobe Spark as a free video maker simply couldn’t be easier. After selecting the “Video” option from the main menu, you’ll be taken to a title screen — where you can give your video project a title. Enter some text, or skip this stage and head straight to the design interface. Don’t worry if you want to change the title later, as you can make unlimited changes to text. You then get the opportunity to choose a video template or start the design process from scratch.

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.
Much OVA-production aims at an audience of male anime enthusiasts. Bandai Visual stated in a 2004 news release (for their new OVAs aimed at women) that about 50% of the customers who had bought their anime DVDs in the past fell into the category of 25- to 40-year-old men, with only 13% of purchasers women, even with all ages included.[4] These statistics cover Bandai Visual anime DVDs in general, not just OVAs, but they show the general tendency at this point[citation needed]. Nikkei Business Publications also stated in a news-release that mainly 25- to 40-year-old adults bought anime DVDs.[5] Few OVAs specifically target female audiences, but Earthian exemplifies the exceptions.
The earliest known attempt to release an OVA involved Osamu Tezuka's The Green Cat (part of the Lion Books series) in 1983, although it cannot count as the first OVA: there is no evidence that the VHS tape became available immediately and the series remained incomplete. Therefore, the first official OVA release to be billed as such was 1983's Dallos, directed by Mamoru Oshii and released by Bandai. Other famous early OVAs, premièring shortly thereafter, were Fight! Iczer One and the original Megazone 23. Other companies were quick to pick up on the idea, and the mid-to-late 1980s saw the market flooded with OVAs. During this time, most OVA series were new, stand-alone titles.

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.
OVA titles have a reputation for detailed plots and character-development, which can result from the greater creative freedom offered to writers and directors relative to other formats. This also allows for animated adaptations of manga to reflect their source material more faithfully. Since OVA episodes and series have no fixed conventional length, OVA directors can use however much time they like to tell the story. Time becomes available to expand upon significant background, character, and plot development. This contrasts with television episodes (which must begin and conclude in 22 to 26 minutes) and with films (which rarely last more than two hours). In the same way, no pressure exists to produce "filler content" to extend a short plot into a full television series. The producers of OVA titles generally target a specific audience, rather than the more mass-market audience of films and television series, or may feel less constrained by content-restrictions and censorship (such as for violence, nudity, and language) often placed on television series. For example, the Kissxsis OVA series generally contains more sexual themes than its television counterpart.

Once we've covered that we'll go through an example of creating an explainer video from beginning to end. You'll be able to watch the instructor as he takes you from conception to completion of the project. During this process you will go through all of the steps needed to create a video. Finally, We'll move onto the business end learning how to quote a project for a client, where you can sell your videos, and more.
