In search of the best free online animation maker we tried out out several animation makers. Here are some of the best free online animation maker tools we tried:
- Animoto: Very limited, you pick fixed images and you just select the animation template used in the background
- Wideo: Very good, best for startup explainers or marketing products or apps. Bit corporate/business styled as opposed to having illustrations.
- PowToon: Very good, has many illustrations and transition options. Lots of features, very powerful, easy to use once you figure it out.
- Moovly: Good, easy to use. Slightly limited illustrations. Has many animation and transition options (ex. hand sketching, which is its best feature). Movies are downloadable.
- Dvolver: very limited illustrations and animations to pick from, but nice and easy. You can’t customize animations. Good for comic conversation videos.
- Voki: not really a movie maker, it creates a human face avatar that talks your script. You can choose the look and the voice. You can use your own voice, or type the script and it reads it.
- ZimmerTwins: very fun to use, you have 2 characters and a cat in different scenarios and situations. You can create conversations and stories. Easy to use but a bit childish.
- Flixpress: has preset animations where you can fill your own content into. Free plan is limited to only a few video templates that are useful only if they suit your brand identity.
Our top picks for the best free online animation maker would be Wideo, PowToon, & Moovly. It all depends on what style of animation video you need. Let us know what you think the best free online animation maker is.
