Animoto Redesigns Video Creation Flow for Easier and Faster Video Making


New York City, NY—Animoto, an online video creation service, announced an all-new, smarter video creation flow redesigned to make it “easier to quickly produce pro-quality videos from photos, video clips and music.” The company also added a new video slideshow style to its library, called Vintage Voyage, which lets anyone produce videos with an old-world feel.

“The magic of Animoto has always been the ability for anyone to quickly create extraordinary videos through a simple, intuitive interface that doesn’t feel like an editing tool,” said Brad Jefferson, CEO of Animoto. “Our all-new creation flow is a huge leap forward in simplicity and provides the framework for us to innovate on our vision faster, while addressing user-requested features more quickly.”

The new Animoto creation process was redesigned from the ground up to accelerate the creation of video slideshows. The new setup allows the creation of a video in as few as five clicks. Another benefit of the creation flow is an expandable workspace that can display up to 300 thumbnail photos at a time, to make it easier to create longer videos. Editing is also easier with full-size image previews and the ability to preview text from within thumbnails.

To get started, users create and share their own 30-second Animoto video for free. For unlimited full-length videos, a monthly subscription to Animoto Plus is available for $5, or users can choose an annual subscription for $30. Another option, Animoto Pro is available for $39 a month, or $249 for an annual subscription, and is ideal for businesses, including professional photographers.
