    There are dozens of programs, all with some functionality specific to that program. Most have free trials. Try some out. How can anyone tell you which tool is right for you?

    Cheers. - Frank

      Thanks for replying , Yes you are right , Although I want to try a tool that can give a video better then slides and text , some animation , But the problem is i never made animated videos , so i am looking for a tool that can be used by a beginner for making animated videos , I dont mind paying few bucks for it .

        VideoMaker FX is easy to use. Explaindio is nice but has a steeper learning curve. Don't know if they will meet your needs, but it's a good place to start.

    I have used one called Wideo, you can create a video for free but to download you will have to pay some bucks. One thing is sure, all the good tools available are paid ones. You won't get any good tool for free.

    TechSmith Camtasia is really powerful and easy to use. There are both free and premium versions too.

    I think PowerPoint is often overlooked. You can make videos that are so much more than just slides.

    Spend some time on YouTube and you'll see how easy it is to animate in PowerPoint.

    If you you've got the time and budget Sony Vegas is very powerful, or Camtasia is also a great tool

    I've used Article Video Robot in the past and it's pretty good.

    I love to use Camtasia when I record slides, however my laptop has some issues with it (get's crazy when I try to split something and there is something wrong with the codec of the ready videos, I often have to use Handbreak to convert them). Lately, I've been using Sony Vegas and there the Movie Studio, that is a bit cheaper. They do have 30-day free trial. I find it surprisingly powerful and great to use, though Camtasia is nicely intuitive compared to that.

    Then I have been playing with Explaindio. You cannot trim and cut with it (not with the basic version), so you can use ready videos (that have to be mp4 and 24 fps), make professional-looking transitions, great sketching and animations. So, it's especially great for sales videos. Explaindio people know how to do marketing, so there exists lots of extra material with it, but you have to pay for those.

    Explaindio and EasyVSL are good choices if you want to step up your efforts in video making. There are plenty of animated addons for Explaindio which make creating videos easier and / or faster. They are not that pricey compared to the time they save, up to max $27 in many cases.

    Hope this helps.
