Free Animation Classes online
Websites need movies because they attract attention, increase customer retention, improve SEO ranking, and help funnel projects. Free animation software is so important because making explainer videos for your website is usually very, very expensive. By the time you calculate the production costs and the scenery costs, as well as lost work time (or paying for actors), many people just give up on the idea and scrap the whole project. This is where animation comes in! 2D animations are quick and do not require locations or setup. A professional animation studio will charge upwards of $3, 000 for a one minute animated video, which is still much cheaper than doing a live action movie. But can it be done for free? Better yet, can it be done for free and still look professional?
Introducing PowToon! PowToon offers a free animation software tool that runs on windows or mac processing systems, and the best part is that you don’t need an animator to use it!
Making a Flash animation takes an expert, plus you need to buy an expensive software. Flash is a great program, but for business owners, marketers, and basic users it is just too much, and it is definitely NOT FREE animation software. PowToon is the first company to offer a free, simplified alternative to Flash. With PowToon, you can easily create 2D animations in just a few hours. It is so easy! Choose your characters, props, and scene, drag and drop them into the PowToon editor, and select the animation you want to apply. Presto! You have a free animated video for your website. Since the PowToon program runs on the web, Mac and Windows users can use it freely to animate their videos without worry. As it stands, PowToon is the best free animation software on the market!
What can you do with animations? Lot’s of cool stuff! Here is a partial list of basic examples:
