Animaker

This do-it-yourself software with 5 different video styles and 120 different types of animations is my favorite. As a content marketer, Animaker gives me access to great info and typography graphic templates.

GoAnimate (Now Vyond)

This professional but not free animation tool is highly professional, comprehensive and intuitive to use. The convertible templates are very visually appealing. Simply great! The different designs are just fun to use!

Biteable

There is a basic account for free and a paid version of Biteable. To create simple and visually appealing explainer videos, the former (free version) is quite sufficient. If you create videos in HD quality you can upload them directly to YouTube and publish them. Price in the premium account is 99 USD / per year, if you want to have, for example, no watermark displayed.

Animiz

Animiz is a free tool that convinces with simple drag-and-drop operation. In addition to the Windows operating system, an app for MacOSX is also provided. Animiz allows you to create all kinds of 2D and text-based animation. Animiz also offers a large selection of characters.

Renderforest

Compared to the other providers, Renderforest is an all-in-one platform. Because in addition to creating explainer videos, a website builder is available to the user.

You don't have to be a graphic designer to work with Renderforest. With hundreds of templates in all categories, it takes a lot of work off your hands. It allows especially users with no previous experience to achieve great results.

Tooonly

Another provider, unfortunately not free, is Toonly. Toonly offers a desktop application to create great explainer videos. There is a $20/month annual subscription fee. What makes Toonly stand out from the other providers ? It stands out with its simple interface and makes it a breeze to create explainer videos.

Explaindio

Our number 12 is Explainidio. Explainidio offers a Windows desktop application as well as a Mac desktop application. A big plus of Explaindio. With more than 200 animated scenes and 500 doodle drawings, Explaindio provides a wide range of predefined elements. With such a wide range of features, the $37 price is justifiable.

Whiteboard video tools

In addition to the tools mentioned above, which are used for the creation of animated videos, there are also several whiteboard video tools.

InVideo

InVideo is a platform to create stunning videos. With over 1200 templates in different styles, InVideo makes it easy to create a video. In addition to the huge number of templates, the quality of the templates is high. You can also easily create your own templates in InVideo.

Make an explainer video yourself or have it made?

Videos are currently on everyone's lips, because they offer enormous potential in online marketing. It is important to follow this trend and expand your marketing strategy in this field.

Although the tools mentioned offers many features and templates, it is not an all-round solution. In fact, detailed animations are difficult to impossible to implement. This is also the reason why most videos today, unfortunately, look similar.

Diversity is missing.

That's where Videobakers comes in. We create professional videos. What tools do we use for that? We rely on Adobe tools like Adobe after effects, adobe animate, adobe illustrator. Because besides the pure graphical realization, your video needs a convincing story, gripping background music and a professional voice over.
