Animaker is a tool that allows anyone to create studio-quality animated and live-action videos in minutes. The software is packed with powerful features that make it easy to produce professional-looking videos fast.

Let’s get started.

These were some of the cool features Animaker offers. Now let me continue this Animaker review and quickly show you how to create cool and engaging video animations using the tool.

How to Create Animation Videos with Animaker?

Once we log inside our dashboard this is what we see. BTW we have a 30% discount link for anyone who wants to give Animaker a shot. Check out the link below.

This is what we recommend now

There are all these options available for us to create videos in different sizes and resolutions.

Then there are different templates which we can edit and use to create our videos. They are arranged into different categories such as video ads, invites, social media videos, intros, outros, presentations, GIFs and many more.

Animaker Templates Review

If you aren’t feeling like creating a video from scratch, these templates can work wonders for you.

However, for this review, let’s see how to create a video from scratch.

Let’s click on the ‘create’ button, to get started.

Now as you can see, there are these different options available for us. We can create a video, a GIF, a character, or a presentation. We can also create a voice over using the in built Text to Speech engine or create a screen capture video.

For this demo, let’s click on the ‘Create a Video’ option and choose the ‘Blank Page’ as our starting point.

Now, as mentioned earlier, I am not going to give you an in-depth tour of this tool.

That may take me hours.

Instead, let me show you the bare minimum that is required to get started with Animaker.

Also, there are already many in-depth tutorials included inside the Animaker platform that can help you with all the basics and advanced techniques required to create professional videos. So there is no point in me going over all that again.

Now, once we enter the workspace this is what we see.

Animaker Workspace

There is a workplace in the centre, all the assets on the left, the timeline editor below and all your scenes on the right.

First, let’s have a look at all the different assets.

If you have changed your mind and want to use a pre-made template for your video, you can access all the different templates from the left ‘assets’ section.

Then there is the characters section.

This section has male, female and children’s characters for use in different scenarios.

Another cool thing about Animaker is the ‘character builder’.

Yes, that’s right. You can actually create your own character and use it in any of your videos.

Isn’t that cool?

We can start creating our own custom character from here.

Just click on ‘create your own’ to continue. [You can watch the video below to find out how exactly it is done.]

Now let’s select the gender.

Once that’s done we can choose a look and start customizing it.

On the character builder page, we can customize every element of the character. There are options to change the skin tone, face shape, hair, eyes, nose, lips and even wrist wear.

You can also make the character wear a mask or have a tattoo.

Once you have created a character, you can save it and return to the main dashboard, where the character you created will be automatically added to the assets library.

Then there are different shapes, emojis, text animations, backgrounds, stock photos and videos, music and more. We can also easily upload our own assets to Animaker, for use in our videos.

Now, as you can see here, there are 3 options. One is for the animation timeline, the other one is for the video timeline and the last one is the camera timeline.

We can easily choose a background from the assets section.

To add a character to the scene, just click on the chosen character. It will be automatically added to the scene.

We can drag and drop the character and resize it very easily.

When we choose a character, a window pops up that has all the settings related to the character.

Using these settings we can change the colour, animate the character, flip the character and make the character move.

Also, on the side, there are different actions and expressions that can be applied to the character with a click of a button. There are hundreds of actions and around 20 expressions.

Now let’ see, how to make the character move, from point A to point B.

To add the moving effect we need to assign a walking action to the character. But with this effect the character only has the walking action but doesn’t move.

Now, to add the moving effect, we need to place the character in the desired position and then add the ‘smart move’ effect.

There are all these different motion paths. Let’s choose the straight line and click on apply.

And that’s it. Now our character is walking from point ‘a’ to point ‘b’.

We can easily adjust the speed of the motion by adjusting the ‘cursor positions’ on the timeline.

There is another cool animation effect you can do inside Animaker, which is to add multiple animations as a sequence.

This can be done using the ‘Action Plus’ feature.

Similarly, we can add voice over to the character. We can upload a file, record a voice-over or use the inbuilt Text to Speech engine.

The inbuilt voice generator, however, is nothing great but gets your job done.

In the same way, you can create more scenes by adding different characters, text, assets etc. and create an animated video in no time.

There are also hundreds of royalty-free music files which can be added to your video with a click of a button.

Once everything is done, publish the video and download it to your computer.

You can also publish directly to YouTube, Facebook and many other social platforms.
