Any Animoto alternative?

Many of us may have heard and tried Animoto. Any much better alternative available?

    Try, it's a free alternative.

      Hi Jerry,

      Our site,, is a great tool to make professional-looking videos in a few clicks. It's also available directly in youtube at

      You can add photos, video clips, text slides, text-to-speech or audio voice-overs, and we give just the right amount of control to make great videos in a few minutes. There's a preview function so you can look what your video will look like before getting it exported. We have plans for unlimited, white-label videos with commercial licensing for pros (starts $39 a month) and resellers (starts $59 a month).

      You can try it for free, and I'd love to get your feedback. We keep adding new themes and features very often, so any tips on what you would like to see next is useful!

    There's quite a few software options that can do the same thing as Animoto. Even if you're pretty good with iMovie or Windows Movie Maker you can achieve the same effect. PowerDirector9 has MagicStyle Movie Wizard. Photodex ProShow is another application that I've heard good things about.

    I've heard Clip Generator is pretty decent, although I will admit I haven't used it yet!

    Has anyone here used I've looked at the website, it looks pretty good. I presume it's not as good as Animoto because it's free?

    As it's free, do Clip Generator put some kind of watermark or stamp with their name on the videos like Animoto does with their free version?

    I have used, they are a good alternative to animoto.

    There doesn't seem any point using Clip Generator. It doesn't even let you download the video so you can't upload it to YouTube.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to download the video? I tried the real player "Download this clip" function, but it only downloads the audio, not the video itself.

    Great info in this thread. I just started making youtube vids a few days ago. I learned the basics of Powerpoint and Camtasia in one day. I've made and uploaded 3 videos in 3 days. The tools in this thread will help polish my future vids.

    THX all

    I like ProShow Gold. One time payment of $70 bucks and its yours for good. Produces very professional videos.

    Wow - some great sites listed here. Pro Show appears to provide a lot of control over creating your slideshow! I still haven't seen any real competitors to Animoto in terms of the quality of graphics that appear in the background, such as the Water or Fire Styles.

    In the beginning all the advertising I did was a single post in a subreddit which was relevant to my product. For the first 3 days the orders started coming in. I got excited and spent hours perfecting and setting up Facebook ads, I also put together a highly targeted Google Adwords campaign, I also made a highly targeted Reddit campaign. 4 days after launch my sales went to zero! My traffic has increased drastically by word of mouth, people sharing my site on FB and from Google Adwords and Reddit paid advertising. I have tried everything and I can't wrap my head around why the sales dropped 3 days ago for no reason! To improve sales I made some tweaks to my site,I made the header more professional, made the check out process easier and faster, optimized the whole site so it loads faster. It doesn't matter what I do no one is buying! I launched about 6-7 days ago is this normal for a new online business to have a bunch of orders in the first couple days and the rest of the week have none? How long does it take to have the orders come in more regular? Even though no sales are coming in on PPC ads how long should I give them? Any suggestions?
