Feature Update — All PowToon Looks in 5 Visual Styles

Water, Water Everywhere…

Tell me if this sounds familiar: You start to work on a new Powtoon and select a style to work in. You start plugging away, and you realize you need an object — let’s say a clock. But searching around, you can’t find a clock that fits the look of your video 🙁

You’re surrounded by assets, characters and props — but nothing looks right, and now you’ve wasted valuable time! It’s a little like being stranded out on the ocean. Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.

5 Visual Styles

PowToon’s dozens of styles are now grouped in 5 major categories to make your experience even more awesome!

We call it the 5 Visual Styles.

The 5 Visual Styles

Don’t worry — all of the characters, props objects you know and love are still here! You can see them in each library category.

Speaking of the library, we separated the characters from the props to make it super easy to find friendly faces for your Powtoon.

The Bottom Line

Bottom line: You still have all the styles you’re used to (with new ones released all the time), we’re just organizing them a little bit differently for 4 very important reasons:

Number 1: Your Powtoons are going to look amazing!!!!

You can be confident that any style family you choose in one of the 5 visual styles will be consistent with the others. No more searching forever, or plunking down mismatched characters and props. The 5 visual styles instantly improve your design consistency. That makes for a Powtoon with more wow factor and a more professional feel.

Number 2: A better experience for you

Instead of only seeing assets from one style family, you’ll now be able to easily see all the assets that fit that style, right there in the editor.

Number 3: Get working fast!

We made it easier for you to chose the overall look for your Powtoon first so you can quickly determine the tone of your video, and can get started fast. And, finally…

Number 4: Massively reduce loading time

This change massively (and I mean massively) reduces loading time. Get editing, publishing and sharing faster than ever before.

So What Are You Waiting For?

Awesomeness awaits you — Go make a Powtoon!
