Simple, Powerful Tools for Making Videos
With GoAnimate, you can publish your first professional-looking video in minutes. Our Quick Video Makers are structured solutions requiring no learning curve. Just click & go! When you want more creative control, use our Full Video Makers. There, you can control the camera, move the characters, add music and effects - all using simple drag & drop tools.
Create Your Own Custom Characters
All our video makers are loaded with a library of characters. But if you want a specific look - you can make it yourself in our Character Creator. Choose facial features, clothing and accessories off simple point & click menus. With practice, you can create just about anyone, from the President of the United States to the president of your company.
Dialogue Your Way
Our platform allows for four different methods of entering dialogue. First, you can record voices directly into the video makers. You don't need special equipment. An ordinary chat or gaming mic will be fine. Second, you can use our "text-to-speech" voices. Just type the lines and choose the voice from a menu. We have men's and women's voices in over 20 different languages to choose from. Third, you can import external audio files. This is great for animating recorded speeches or interviews. Finally, you can type text and just have it appear in comic-book style speech bubbles.
BYOB (Bring Your Own Background)
We have hundreds of backgrounds and sets for you to choose from. But maybe you don't like ours. Or maybe the scene has to take place at the client's headquarters. That's no problem. You can import image files and use them as the background. The feature is not limited to backgrounds. You can import audio, image, video or flash files into our Full Video Makers to be incorporated into your video.
Hosting and Sharing
When you create a video on GoAnimate, we automatically host it as part of your account. You can share links, paste embed codes, export the video to mp4 and see basic viewing statistics. For those who want wider distribution, we offer one-click publishing to YouTube and similar arrangements with many professional video hosting services. Please see our Marketplace page
