Animoto Gets You Going with Web and App Based Video Creation from Still Photos

A friend of mine introduced me to Animoto and in a nutshell Animoto lets you create fun videos from your own photos, video clips, texts and music. This can be a great tool for recreational or professional web users looking to expand their product offerings to their clients. You can also get Animoto’s iPhone and Android applications for those on the go or onsite moments. With the proliferation of mobile photography and video this could put more immediate options right in your hands.

To showcase the simplicity of how quickly and easily you can create a video upon signing up for your account Animoto asks if you’d like to create your first video using your Facebook images. I said “why not” and gave it a go. Within minutes I had a thirty second video showing my images in a fun and professional video collage with music. Sharing the video was a snap on a website, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and via email. I could pick web friendly video resolutions 360p, 480p and 720p HD. Animoto has many “styles” to chose from and some good looking holiday themes for free. The Pro account which you pay for, has even more. Each “style” has it’s own unique effects, background and transitions. They look professionally done and polished.

Animoto offers you three levels of accounts. Lite is the attractive price of “FREE”. With a Lite account you get unlimited 30-second videos, dynamic themed video styles for all occasions and 600+ music tracks. You can also upload your own music like in all of the other plans.
