Make an Animated Video Free Online

Animation studios charge thousands of dollars for a cool explainer video for your homepage.  But with PowToon you can make an animated video for free online. It’s easy.  PowToon has a cool user interface that allows you to make an animated video and an animated YouTube movie yourself without learning animation software.


What is an animated explainer video?

You can create an animated video using Powtoon that explains to the viewer what it is you do and what makes you special.  Below is one example of an explainer video.  You could explain anything: how your product works, why someone should hire you or why Constantinople was renamed Istanbul. Animated movies contain animated characters and PowToon has a tool for you to easily select your favorite characters and animate them with simple effects.
