In this Create Studio Pro review, I am going to look at the upgraded version of the popular video animation software, Create Studio.
I have been using Create Studio for almost two years now and during these years I have also recommended it to thousands of my readers and YouTube subscribers.
If you don’t know what Create Studio is, it is a desktop-based 2d and 3d animation software using which you can create literally any kind of video you want.
You can create amazing explainer videos, product review videos, carousels, whiteboard videos, kinetic typography videos, and a lot more. And not to forget the breathtaking 2d and 3d PIXAR-style animations that you can create using this software.
And Create Studio Pro is the upgraded version of this popular product. It has got more functionality and features than its earlier version, but one thing that didn’t change is its price.
Since its launch Create Studio software was made available for a one-time price of $67, which gave its users lifetime access to the standard version of the tool.
And now even the Create Studio Pro version is being launched at the same price of $67. ( Now there is Create Studio 3.0 which is the latest version of the tool).
Create Studio Pro has all the features of the original software plus many added features, improvements, and assets. One thing that has remained the same is the $67 price tag.
Isn’t that great?
Now let us continue this Create Studio PRO review and see what this software has in store for us.
Let’s get started.
Create Studio Pro Features Review
Let’s start this review of Create Studio Pro by looking at its features in detail.
As I said earlier, this software has all the features of its predecessor plus many added features and improvements.
First, there is the intuitive editor.
The editor is the heart of any video creation software and needs to be easy to use and intuitive.
And Create Studio Pro’s editor is just that. It is very easy to use and even a complete beginner can create videos using this software without any problem.
I have used many video creation software in the past and I have to say that this is one of the easiest editors to use.
You can create any kind of video using this editor.
You can do it all using this software, whether it is a simple explainer video or a complicated 3d animation.
The interface is very user-friendly and you will find all the tools and features neatly organized in the toolbar. And this is one thing that has improved significantly in the PRO version.
In the original software, the interface was slightly cluttered. But in the PRO version, they have made it much cleaner and more organized.
You can easily find any tool or feature that you need without any problem.
Animated 2D and 3D Characters
This is the feature I look for the most in any video animation software. I just love these cute little animated characters that can do all kinds of things. I like how they can be used to add a personal touch to the videos.
And Create Studio Pro does not disappoint in this department. It has a huge library of animated 2d and 3d characters.
You can easily find any type of character that you need for your video.
Whether it is a male or female character, an animal, or even a cartoon character, you will find it in this software.
There are also doodle characters and bobblehead characters. The bobblehead characters are a recent addition and they are just fun to use.
Then we have transition effects.
Transitions are a great way to add some flair to your videos and make them more interesting. And Create Studio Pro has a good selection of transition effects that you can use.
There are many transition effects and you will definitely find one that suits your needs.
With Create Studio Pro’s gorgeous scene transitions, you can easily turn your ordinary videos into extraordinary ones that will capture your audience’s attention.
Scroll stopper videos are great for getting people’s attention. They are basically videos that stop people from scrolling and make them watch your video.
And Create Studio Pro has some great scroll stopper templates that you can use.
It has wild video effects that are designed to grab the attention of users who are scrolling through their feed and entice them to click on your post.
The software includes over 30 scroll-stopping effects that can be customized to match your brand or message.
Create Studio Pro’s Smart Components are pre-coded smart elements that help you save time and create professional-looking videos. I will show you how these work later in this review.
Basically, these are elements that you can just drag and drop into your video.
You don’t need to know any technical stuff to use these. Just drag and drop them into your canvas, replace the media, and you are done.
It’s that simple.
With this feature, you can do custom animations with custom easing.
Create Studio PRO also has a number of integrations that make it even more powerful. It integrates with Unsplash, Giphy, Pexels, and more.
This gives you access to a wide range of high-quality images and videos that you can use in your projects.
What’s Inside Create Studio Pro?
Now, I am going to log into my Create Studio Pro account and show you around the software.
I am not going to go into the details of how each feature works in this Create Studio Pro review. I am just going to give you an overview of the software so that you can see what it is capable of.
Once you log in, this is the dashboard that you see.
On the dashboard itself, you have information regarding your membership level. As you can see, right now we have access to the ‘All Access Membership’.
There are also shortcuts to the getting started video, support group, Facebook group, and YouTube channel.
On the left-hand side, you have the main menu.
The first item on the menu is the “New Project” tab. From here you can either start a project from scratch or use one of the many available video themes.
You can create a video ad, character explainer video, doodle video, scroll stopper, and more, from here. If you want to open an already saved project you can do that from this ‘load project’ section.
Then there is the ‘templates’ section. From here you can access the whole library of video templates that are available inside Create Studio Pro.
Please remember that we have an all-access membership, so we have access to all the templates.
If you have only brought the Create Studio Pro standard version, you may not have access to all of these. We will talk about plans and pricing at the end of the video.
Now coming back to the templates you have all different types of video templates available.
You can create promotional videos, explainer videos, logo strings, intros and outros, local business videos, carousels, whiteboard videos, kinetic typography videos, and more from here.
Then there are the tutorial and support sections.
Now, let’s create a new project.
We will create a project from scratch.
We can create different styles of videos in various resolutions. You can create regular landscape videos, square videos, FaceBook videos, Instagram stories, vertical videos, and more. You can also create custom size videos.
We are going to choose the 1st option and let’s choose the 4K resolution. Let’s leave the ‘canvas color’ to white and click on ‘create project’.
When we log inside immediately we can see that the interface has significantly changed.
They have made some critical changes to the interface and it looks much better than before.
It is less clumsy and sleeker.
Also, after playing around for a bit, we have realized that the software now has become really fast and responsive.
There are no glitches and it is working really smoothly.
They have clearly worked on the speed and performance of the software.
Now, let’s go ahead and start exploring the interface.
In the center, you have the main working area. You can easily adjust the positioning and zoom from here.
On the right hand, you have all the video presets. These options keep changing depending on the assets we choose on the canvas.
The left-hand side is where you have all the tools and resources required for creating your video.
First, there is the media section, from where you can import your own media or import media using one of the many integrations Create Studio Pro has. There is Unsplash, Pexels, Giphy, and a few other integrations available.
We would like to remind you here once again that what you are seeing is an account with all access membership that gives you access to a lot more integrations, than what is available on the standard version.
So it is something that you need to keep in mind.
We also have a handy text-to-speech feature inside Create Studio. We have both male and female voices in different accents.
Frankly speaking, we didn’t like the quality of the voices much. But it is still a nice feature to have inside the software.
Then there is also an option to record your voice directly from the software.
Next, there is the studio section. This is where all the fun stuff is. You have the backgrounds, characters, doodle elements, hands, stickers, VFX, transitions, text animations, and much more.
Let’s have a look at some of these elements.
If we choose backgrounds, you can see that it is again divided into different categories.
There are gradients, 3d backgrounds, flow, supreme, etc.
Similarly, each element is divided into different categories for easy access.
For example, if we click on characters we can see that it has been divided into 3d characters, bobblehead, flow, supreme, doodle characters, and more. By the way, the bobblehead feature is a new addition to the software.
When you choose any element inside Create Studio Pro you can see that there is a download icon. This means that you need to download the element to your device to use it.
To add an element to the canvas just download it and drag it onto the canvas. When you add an element to the canvas the same will also appear on your timeline from where you can adjust the order, scene timing, and speed, and do a lot more.
Animating a Character
To add an animation effect to the character just select the element and click on ‘new action’. All the available animation effects for the chosen character will now pop up.
Choose the one you like and the element will now have that animation effect.
You can adjust the speed of the animation from the timeline. Similarly, you can add multiple animation effects to the same character.
You can also do this from the right side panel. We can also change the animation sequence from here.
Let’s try one of the animation effects to show you how this works.
We will choose the ‘driving a tractor’ animation effect.
Now if you see here, this lady is driving the tractor but is not actually moving. To add the moving effect we will choose the character, and select the motion settings from the right.
From here, we are going to choose ‘out’, ‘position’, and then ‘left’. That’s it. Now, you can see that the character is actually moving from one side to another.
We hope this gives you a good idea of how the software works and what you can do with it.
The possibilities with Create Studio Pro are really endless.
Similarly, you can create some cool bobblehead animations and doodle animations using this tool.
By the way, there are a few important tools on the top bar like the pen tool, icons, text elements, and more which you can use to create some amazing videos.
All of this can get quite overwhelming at first, but you will get the hang of it with time.
Adding a Doodle Effect
Now let us show one more thing before we move on to pricing.
That is, adding the doodle effect.
Let’s write some text and go to the Effects tab and then choose the doodle effect. We just need to drag the doodle effect onto the text element. And that’s it. Now you can see that the text is being written by a hand.
We can easily change the duration of the effect from the timeline.
We can also change the hand from here.
By the way, apart from the doodle effect, we can also add many other types of animation to the text element.
Moreover, the doodle effect can also be added to characters and other media assets.
Other than the doodle effect, we also have glitch, green screen, clip speed, filters, color corrections, sharpness, and many more options inside the effects section.
There are some very cool transitions as well.
You also have access to royalty-free music files and sound effects which you can use in your videos.
Then there is the ‘components’ section which is like the collection of premade video templates or presets that can be used to create videos in a matter of minutes.
For example, to create a carousel video just drag the carousel preset and add media. That’s it. Your video will be ready in no time.
There is also the button element, typewriter effect, and more inside the components section.
All in all, Create Studio Pro is a very powerful software. We are really blown away by its features and capabilities.
Create Studio Pro Lifetime Deal
Now let’s talk about pricing.
Create Studio Pro standard version is available for a one-time price of only $67.
This price includes everything that you need to create amazing videos. That means there are no monthly or annual fees.
With this front-end purchase, you also get access to 35 characters which include 15 3D characters and 20 2D characters. You also get amazing backgrounds, icons, stickers, and more.
The commercial license is included at no extra cost. That means you can create videos for your clients and charge them top dollar.
If you want to get more assets, like characters, backgrounds, video templates, etc. you will have to get the ‘all access membership’ which is going to cost you an additional 37 dollars a month if we are not wrong.
With all access membership, you also get additional assets added to your account each month.
And the best part is that there is a 30-day money-back guarantee, in case you are not satisfied with the software for any reason.
So, basically, there is no risk involved.
All in all, we think Create Studio Pro is a great deal and we highly recommend it.
Create Studio Pro Review Verdict
After reviewing the Create Studio Pro software I can say that it is definitely a powerful tool to have in your arsenal, especially if you are looking to create explainer videos or any kind of marketing videos that include animations.
The features and capabilities of this software are really impressive and it is very easy to use. Best of all, you don’t need to have any prior experience or knowledge about animation or graphic designing to use this software.
The templates and other assets that come with the software make it very easy to create videos in a matter of minutes even for beginners.
