Video explainers are on the rise, and they are fast becoming a corporate favourite instead of the “old” Powerpoint presentations.
PowToon is a brand new presentation software that allows just about anyone to create awesome presentations and animated product demo videos containing the WOW!-Factor.
Making your own presentoon is intuitive and drag-and-drop simple. PowToon’s awesome animation effects, vibrant designs and creative styles give your presentoon a professional look-and-feel.
(4 hours using PowToon can achieve the result of 4 days of professional Flash animator work)
That is the official description but better yet than that, you knowyou want to see a video about it! Check it out:
Isn’t that cool?
We spoke to Daniel Zaturansky, co-founder & COO of PowToon last week about the genesis of the idea and the business. Being an entrepeneur, he always had to make pitch presentations about new ideas, but they always felt a bit stale. What if they were animated and looked more cool? One of the next thoughts was what if there would a be a tool to make such presentations that anyone could use?
He and his partner than had a video made about what PowToon would be like even before creating the service, and it had such great reception that they knew they had to build it.
After much work, PowToon was born and opened to the public this past August.
So how does it work?
You sign-up first of all, and then get to choose the style of you video/presentation, and then several templates to choose from.
Next up, you are on the main center of creation of your video, and now the fun begins.
You can drag and drop backgrounds, characters, text, and many more elements, and animate them along the screen.
Here’s how it works, on video:
It’s pretty simple and within a few minutes you should be able to get started doing a cool video presentatioin.
Now are there limitations? Of course there are. That’s why they are constantly working on the product and have recently alpha launched a marketplace, where anyone look up for a Pro to make their video on PowToon, or get a voice over, and so on.
Wooshii members who are looking for more freelance work could also check this new section out, benefitting from the potential of PowToon users that are looking to get their work professionally done.
Bottom line is, PowToon is a great service to make quick, fast, video explainers and something you should give a try.
Of course there are people that would rather just have custom made professional explainers, and to those – you can get your project live on Wooshii and in front of professionals from all around the worl in a few minutes time. Get started right now!
