Pros: Ease of publishing and editing videos. I like that I can use my own music or music from the vast library they have. They have accounts for Education and I use it at my school as well.

Cons: I like that the Education accounts are free but the signing up process for getting your students accounts can become a little bit laborious especially since you have to renew the license each year. It is still free so I won't complain too much.

Pros: What I like most about Animoto is that it is feature-packed and user-friendly. I can use it to create high quality videos for social media posts, presentations, and ads with ease. I can make videos of any length and make them square or rectangular.

Animoto's audio library is huge and hold some great music in a variety of moods, tempos, and lengths. I like using it, because I know that I have permission to use any of the royalty-free music without violating any copyrights.

Cons: What I like least about Animoto is the lack of a video clip library. If you want video in your presentation, you have to upload it yourself.

Overall: Animoto allows me to make slide shows and videos that look great and post easily to social media accounts or online ads.

Pros: Animoto is EASY to use. Pre-made marketing templates are real time-savers. The music library is vast - there are selections to meet every mood or circumstance. Different slide show styles keep things fresh. Customer support is excellent and there is a social media support group in addition.

Overall: I've been using Animoto for a loooooooong time - TEN years - and it's been a pleasure watching them grow and innovate. They are movers and shakers and it's exciting to see anything new that they add to their services because they always knock it out of the park.

Pros: While we produce longer form video using editing software such as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere we still value our Animoto subscription to create something fast and flashy. For seasonal or holiday-based promotions or events, they have some great 'themed' backgrounds. We really get use out of Animoto when we have people share their photos and cell phone videos from events we can't attend and then we are able to quickly generate fun and engage videos that really capture the event. Being able to create 'square' aspect ration videos easily is enormously useful if your primary distribution is on Social Media. Just as great is the ability to go back and re-edit the video in 16x9 quickly and easily for display on a monitor or video wall.

Cons: Most of the music that Animoto has for its videos get ads placed on them when used on YouTube so we don't use them anymore and instead either upload youtube safe music from youtube or from royalty free music we purchase or own. Animoto has made great strides in creating some of their square and marketing video templates but could use some more holiday/seasonal and general styles as it has been a while since I've seen some new exciting themes.

Overall: Fast and easy way to generate dynamic content from assets submitted by non-professionals. Also a great way to quickly generate Social Media specific video content by professionals as well.

Pros: Its easy and the results are really great looking, our clients are very happy. Lots of choice in templates and lettertypes, colors, possibilities. Well I say lots but in any case plenty enough for my purpose. We make presentations for small hotels and B & B´s and display them on their webpages, it really makes for an easy but fabulous presentation. It took a while to figure out how it all works, but in the end its really simple. The share functions are super easy and everything seems to work just fine. I even uploaded my own music for the first time, which also works fine. Although there are lots to choose from in the library.

Cons: Support is a bit difficult, no online chat. I would like it if settings could be stored as favorites, as I forget which settings I like best. There also doesnt seem to be a duplicate button, which would be usefull. I also miss a help button or a how to guide, which would have saved me lots of time in the beginning.

Overall: Use it all the time, its easy and beautiful results

Pros: I've used many different video creation tools and Animoto's is quite unique because it allows you to use real stock footage!

Cons: It is a bit simple in its devices and after a few videos, it's difficult to find new footage to use!

Overall: Animoto is awesome and is great for video creation!

Pros: We used Animoto to create basic videos for marketing campaigns. It's easy to use and include a number of live stock videos to use which makes for a great visual presentation.

Cons: There isn't much complexity with the product. Once the stock videos have been used, it seems that the well runs dry so to speak.

Overall: Animoto is great, basic video platform that anyone can learn how to use but does not provide the depth that other video platforms offer.

Pros: they optimize their templates & layout to reflect what works & doesn't based on research & data - the drag & drop interface makes editing the layout very easy. Also love the premade transitions & templates.

Cons: There could be more sales related templates for B2C and square option for slideshow - also could use a few more options for transitions, but easily see them building more options over time.

Overall: Easy to create & share marketing videos

We use it every year for our graduation ceremony videos. Great program.

Pros: Ease of use - It is so easy to learn how to navigate the program. I can do it myself and don't have to rely on my computer-savvy assistant to help me!

Cons: I wish there were more song choices to go along with the templates you choose for the slide shows. They are nice, but not always popular.

Always a quick and easy way to create video.

Pros: It's easy to use and the quality is decent. They have a good music selection and it is easy to get on youtube and share.

Cons: Limited ability to go beyond the templates. Limited ability to type in the images. It would be nice to be able to write more on the images. It is just a very basic program for videos. We will more than likely be looking to upgrade to something a little more technical.

So a nicer application, easy to use although limited.

Comments: I used it for a short while in my business and however many useful it might've had been, it surely wasn't that functional, as in advanced presentation making.
