Send personalized green greetings using your own photos and videos with Animoto!
This holiday season is the perfect time for you to put away the cards, pens, and stamps and start a new eco-friendly tradition for 2011. Animoto video holiday greetings provide a personal and fun way to share the highlights of the year with friends and family. Animoto is an online video creation service that lets you quickly and easily create movie-style videos from their own photos and video clips and send green greetings this year. Also great for capturing and sharing any special event in your life.
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.
