Businesses use free animation software to create explainer videos for their website
Web sites need movies because they attract attention, increase customer retention, improve SEO ranking, and help funnel prospects. Animation software is so important because making explainer videos for your website is very expensive. By the time you calculate the production costs and the scenery costs as well as lost work time (or paying for actors) you give up on the idea. Enter animations, 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 video. But can it be done for free? Well Powtoon now offers a free animation software tool that can run on windows or mac and you don’t need to be an animator to use it.
