Animoto Review: Online Video Creation Service

With the award-winning Animoto Plus, longer videos and downloads put you in the director’s seat. Create a masterpiece from the pictures of your friend’s wedding, a baby shower, birthdays, anniversaries, or that Facebook album in minutes. With hundreds of ways to share – social networks, YouTube, email, even on DVD – you can wow all your friends!

I have had a lite (free) account for about a year now. With the lite account, you are able to make unlimited 30-second videos. I uploaded our family Christmas picture and set it to a Christmas themed card. You can add about 12 images if you want. They also have stock images and videos that you can use. You are able to change the music and add text to the video, as well. Then you hit the produce video button and voila! It took maybe a minute for the video to appear. If you want, you can navigate around, and they will email you the finished video. For the video below, all I added was one stock animated video and added text. The site is super easy to navigate and to use. This is great to add several of your holiday, Thanksgiving, birthday pictures, any event really, and send to far off friends and family.

    I learned the rate of picture transition will vary with the quickness or slowness of the music. Also they have a music library to choose from so it takes the headache out of using licensed music.

    I visited their site and learned that you can use your own music mp3 or use some of their premade ones. Looks like a really user-friendly way to bring pictures alive! carriethegood(at)gmail(dotcom)
