Businesses use free animation software to create explainer videos for their website

One of the best ways to improve your website user experience is to add visual effects. Animated videos attract attention, increase customer retention, improve SEO ranking, and help generate leads Videos allow you to communicate complex ideas quickly and clearly, but not everyone has the budget to hire a professional animator. 

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!

Powtoon’s free animation software allows you to make explainer videos for your website. Creating videos is usually  very expensive. After calculating the production costs, many people just give up on the idea and scrap the whole project.

This is where animation comes in! Powtoon’s 2D animations are quick to get started with and do not require scouting locations or hiring actors. 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 video. But can it be done for free? Better yet, can it be done for free and still look professional?

Why does Powtoon Provide its free animation software tool?

Powtoon works on a freemium model. It’s free for anyone to use with the Powtoon logo on the video and the Powtoon outro at the end of your video, but you can remove both of these things, and gain access to fantastic premium characters, for a very reasonable price. If you are an animator or want more graphics the premium account is definitely for you!

Online animation software products vary greatly in user-friendliness, features, and price. It’s important to consider what features you need rather than the wide range of options packaged together. Lighting effects are great, but do you need hundreds to choose from?

As you compare animation software program options take note of the built-in video editor, the powerful features, and consider if the other company offers a complete video creation suite for free as Powtoon does.

Don’t waste your time or your budget with 3D Animation software! Powtoon’s powerful tools will help you design professional videos your site users (and Google!) will love.
