Pros: I am using VideoScribe to promote my digital products and the truth is that it is a fantastic software. It has quite powerful tools to create excellent animated videos on blackboard.

While it is true that there are many software with this integrated option, VideoScribe for me is the best tool comparing its quality with the price.

It is accessible and also very easy to use, it is as simple as placing text and images to give it a good position and ready. I say so, that I am very new to creating promotional videos or even tutorials.

Cons: Something I did not like about VideoScribe, is that it is downloadable. I really love the platforms that are on the web, since I have access to it wherever I am; However, everything else seems great.

Overall: In general, I really like working with VideoScribe since it is very simple to use but at the same time you can create real works of art with this sofaware.

Pros: I love that with VideoScribe you're not restricted by anything. It's like having the power of a moving mind map in that you can create your video by drawing on a canvas and choosing how you want it to appear, flow and zoom in and out so you can be really creative and emphasise different points. People have gone out of their way to ask what I've created my videos in as a result.

Cons: There really isn't anything I don't like about VideoScribe.

Pros: I enjoy seeing my ideas come to life in videoscribes. There are many images in the library and you can use your own images, too. I like that you can add variety to how the images are drawn onscreen--use pens, markers, hands, or just have the images slide in or get 'drawn' on their own.

Cons: The learning curve may be higher than other tools but the results are worth the effort.

Pros: Offers an easy way to provide instructional or informational data in a very engaging way.

Cons: Has quite a few limitations, such as tricky copy and pasting and poor info . If you have left off using it for a while, easy to forget processes.

Overall: Have used it as the opening on presentations, to present complex information and has always been well received. Looks impressive.

Pros: The whiteboard effect is great for intro and outro videos, as well as for explanatory videos that are so popular for marketing purposes. However, I have managed to create other nice things like dynamic signatures for me and my team.

Cons: It doesn't always respect your wishes and you have to play around with the framing, which can get a little annoying. I doesn't come with enough high-quality SVG images so you have to go outside to find them and that's not always easy.

Overall: I tried it out of curiosity and decided to stick with it because it keeps getting easier to use it, the features more friendly and it's 2 apps in one (StoryPix is also a cool app to have around).

Pros: This software works very well and easily and creates very nice whiteboards. I moved onto more advanced software though, as I wanted more features. Videoscribe is brilliant for anyone starting out or who wants to create fairly basic whiteboards. That said, you can actually do some cool stuff with it (that doesn't look basic, I mean) if you know what you're doing.

Cons: If you don't prep files correctly it makes a thin outline of your lines and only afterwards the lines fill in/appear fully. I really don't like how that looks, but a lot of peoples use it that way or seem to like it.

Pros: Makes it easy to create super cool high quality white board animations.

Has the ability to import svg files.

Cons: Needs more hands on experience to create interactive content.

Overall: During the trial period I was able to play around with the tool and created small content videos. But not sure whether to buy the paid version as it cost a bit for a monthly subscription.

The most easy animation THERE IS!

Pros: I found videoscribe as I was looking to make one of our official videos attractive and videoscribe did just that. It allowed me to explain my concepts in a trendy way and helped me to take my concept to the viewer easier. We can optimize everything, from the duration of each pic to recording our voice and making it a part of the show. The preferences for which hand, brush or pencil, painting or placing is really amazing

Cons: When we import pictures from outside their database, they find it difficult to understand it and they do not draw it properly. Also their picture database is very small and only has a few pictures.

Overall: Great experience. I used it only once and now I am using it for everything little thing I do

Pros: This makes it quite easy and affordable to create basic whiteboard videos with little technical or graphics experience.

Cons: Creating more elaborate videos takes a bit more effort, practice, and experience. There doesn't seem to be a simple way of changing the font and color for a single word in a sentence without creating an additional element.

Pros: I love the drag and drop features in Sparkol. The pre-set elements help to setup the first videos. I mainly enjoy how I can create a whole message within a few minutes with visuals through their drag and drop functions.

Cons: It is hard to maintain an overlook through the process also guidance to set up videos and make them. Also, there seems to be hard to find out the way to create new pages, so even though main functions are intuitively set up, there can be some extra ease to the process.

Overall: Video Scribe helps to catch my audience attention with few seconds and deliver valuable message and knowledge within minutes.

All my work on youtube and marketing on LinkedIn works like a charm with this tool.
